I Got An Hp Laptop That Came With W7 I Created A Partition And Installed Win Xp Usually When You Boot It Will Ask You What Os To Start.
This Laptop Goes Directly To Xp With No Option To Choose Which One
In My Computer Folder You Can See The Other Drive With W7 And All Its Contents It Never Got Deleted So I Do Not Know Why I Can Boot To That One..
Does Any Body Know How To Fix This Issuor Tell Me What I Did Wrong???

Yup, go into start with XP, then right click on My Computer, hit the properties button. From there, go to the "Advanced" tab. Under the Startup and Recovery section, hit the "Settings" button.

At the top of this box you will see a drop-down bar, and two places to check a box. Where it says "Time to display list of operating systems" Make sure it's checked and put it to 30 seconds.

If you want to change the order of which OS it auto-boots to, let me know.

Did you create the XP OS in the same partition as the W7 OS? or did you shrink the W7 partition and make a new partition then format it?
