Dual Boot using 2 hard drives on pavilion a6202 Desktop.

Hi

 

I have inherited a Pavilion a6202 Tower. It is loaded with Windows Vista(32) on a 230gb Hard drive setup.

 

I have installed a second 230gb Hard drive, and loaded Windows XP. Which seemed to work OK.

 

Then I shut it down and went to bed!!

 

Now on boot. I press escape, and it boots to "Boot Menu" giving me the choice of which drive to Boot from

 

Selecting C2 boots to Vista. However selecting C4 boots to a Blank screen with Message "boot fail. Insert Disk and return"

 

Doing this boots to Vista.? What is Not right?

 

Pete
