I have a BIG problem. I have a brand new Toshiba Laptop, and i can't get the dual boot to work! If i install XP first, when I install Vista, i can't go back to boot up XP, and i can't use the BCDedit command, because Vista says i don't have permission to do this!!! I am trying all this under an administrator user. The Boot menu shows both OS, but i can't boot up XP.

If i install XP AFTER Vista, then i can't get Vista to boot up either. I tried using the EasyBCD tool but still nothing.

pls have Me Thanhyou verymuch

If you have both Operating Systems installed, boot into one, and connect to the Internet. Search for something like BootMagic (which is not free) and it may be able to help you dual boot.
