I have a Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO Li1718 Laptop. It came with Vista Home Premium installed which was fine until I tried to use Cubase 4 with a Beta driver on an M-Audio Fast TRack Pro USB Audio interface. 'SPDIF In' wasn't working on the card and latency in audio wasn't great.
I installed XP Home on a separate partition to Vista so that I could use verified drivers for the audio interface to continue writing music on XP. There now seems to be no option to choose operating systems on boot up and everything I'd put on Vista is now inaccessible.
I'd previously had XP pro and XP home running on the same computer (different drives, not separate partitions though) and I could always choose which OS to boot up. This is why I thought it would work this time.
Is there any way I can boot from a CD to choose OS's with a downloaded program on the boot CD to prompt this? Does anyone know of a solution? Or do I just need to start from scratch (I'd rather not if possible)
It's better to install XP first and then install Vista from the XP installation (to a seperate partition of course). This way, the Vista boot loader will come up when your computer is restarted and you get the choice to boot to either OS from there.
