When this is lost the download of Windows 7 due to Windows XP boot loader does not detect the older OS. If you try to restore the download of Windows 7 with the help of her staff of recovery tools available on the installation DVD or on a specially created CD recovery disk will only restore to Windows 7. To boot two OS, you need to make a temporary installation of another copy of Windows 7, with the result that they will get 3 zag-rozochka configuration, and delete a second copy of Windows 7.
For this you need to format the third partition that contains the second copy of Windows 7, and remove it from the selection screen download. This is done as follows. After installation loaded a second copy of Windows 7. Thus is set the default boot the remaining OS. Click two times OK, OK, close the window and restart the computer.
