Post NTLDR missing, Dual Boot Win7/WinXP
The boot block is Win7's and its BCD points to partition 1
(XP) as its default OS, 2nd is Win7 itself.

BCD's menu shows:
Windows XP
Windows 7 Pro
Windows Recovery Console

(I wondered which recovery console that was,
Win7's or WinXP?)

When XP is booted, C: is partition 1, D: is partition 2.
When 7 is booted C: is partition 2, D: is partition 1

Booting to XP: NTLDR's menu shows
Windows XP HOME
Windows Recovery Console

When I run the wintousb v0011
with nothing but the initial
wizard (no specific config)
the resulting USB is bootable,
but when the boot block looks
for NTLDR it can't find it.

Target was a brand new USB 2.0 4gb flash drive.

Do I need to copy any files from XP's \i386
to the root of the USB device? I thought
the boot loader needed a few EXEs and DLLs
to run correctly?

Help please?? Thanks
