    Default Dual boot question in win 8

    Hi there,

    I am running windows 8 and XP on my old pc, and enjoyed it for a long time. This morning when i open "msconfig"....XP is not there. Shouldn't it be there so I can choose the default OS to boot. so i also want to put windows 8 on my Vista machine but need to learn how to properly dual boot.

    Does anyone know how to dual boot win 8 with Vista and XP?

    You'll need to install Net Framework 2.0 to use Easy in XP. Then remove Windows 8 listing in Add/Remove and add it back, Save, Restart.

    hope helps.
