    Maybe not the best place to ask this type of question, but what the hell.

    For a while I had Windows Vista on a primary drive and Windows 7 on the secondary drive. When the PC is booting, I got the option to choose which OS to choose. I few weeks ago, I wiped the Windows Vista drive and installed Windows 7 instead. Now I don't get the option to choose which drive to use. Instead my computer boots directly to the new Windows 7 installation. Under the latter, I can see the other drive and have access to all the files, but I need to be able to boot into the original Win7 as well. Is there any way around this?

    Thank you.

    Youve got to edit your "boot.ini" at your drive c: or use a third party "boot manager" such as acronis/etc.
