XP, Vista, OSX Boot Problems

So I today I finally got OSX 10.4.8 JAS to work :angry:. However my problem is that I can no longer boot up Windows XP. My only HD is partitioned as follows: primary XP, primary Vista, primary OSX, logical data.


After I installed OSX I followed a guide from this forum to fix the HFS+ partition error. This made OSX bootable, but neither XP nor Vista would boot up at this point. So I put in the Vista install dvd and repaired the startup. This fixed the Vista so it could boot up correctly, however the vista boot manager did not give me the option of Vista or XP as it had done before.


From here I made the OSX partition active using diskpart so I could use the darwin bootloader. Darwin shows all four of my partitions but whenever I try to boot "XP" Vista will boot. Whenever I try to boot "Vista" nothing happens.


Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for my bad english.

try with Acronis OS Selector,that should work 100%

it automaticly recognize your operating systems and allowe you to choose at start-up.
