    Hi friend..................

    One of the reason of this problem is you can choose dual booting process when choose the first boot setup is windows 7 then second bootup is windowsxp,

    So some times occurred this problem....like windows xp won't working ............

    why because of windowsxp is FAT16 file system............windows 7 is NTFS file system..............

    so you can click on the repair the boot setup when windows starting time press F7..........

    At Least you repair 3 times of boot startup in windows xp.............

    Thank you all the best.............

    Dear friends..

    The problem is..

    Windows 7 is latest Operating System..

    Windows XP is Older Version OS..

    This Operating Systems Whwn we are deciding Dual booting First we can Install windows Xp first because it is Fat 16(File Allocation Table) file system..

    Next we can install Windows 7 This file system is NTFS(New Technology File system).

    Still you are facing This problem Repair your windows XP..

    For repairing Once again


    Put your Xp in DVD drive and It shows Install are Repair then Press Repair..

    Then it will work..

    Thank you and All the best..

    Hey friend ,
    You are facing this problem may be because you have installed both the versions on the same partition
    due to which your newer version of windows overwrite its file previous version files.
    So install both the windows in the different partition.

    And one more thing go to boot manager and make time for the windows selection so that you can choose the
    window you wants to boot but not by default.

    thnx
