    I am setting up a test pc at work. I am wanting to put XP 32bit, international language XP, Win7 32bit and Win7 64bit on it.
    I started with XP32bit, then installed Win7 32, then Win7 64. All just worked fine and dandy until i installed the international version of XP.
    The boot options does not have either Windows7 partition shown.
    Do I have to manually edit boot.ini or something similar to get it to show? Or do I have to reinstall one of the Win7 drives?

    Man, why are you installing all that instead of using Virtual Machines?

    Never did that before and wasn't sure if it was 100%.
    Especially with the international edition.

    I just noticed it's for a test PC at work, so I guess someone could make the case for or against using VMs. Whatever floats yer boat. I'm sure someone else could help you out.
