bcdedit启动项修复

先装VISTA系统,然后在别的分区装上XP系统,那么装完XP系统,你只能进XP系统。可以这么来做双启动菜单:
进入你的XP系统,确保你的C盘下面要有ntldr、NTDETECT、boot.ini这三个文件
复制 你安装VISTA系统的硬盘分区下的windowssystem32winload.exe文件到你安装XP系统的硬盘分区下的windowssystem32文件夹里
放入VISTA安装光盘,关闭它自动运行窗口
打开—开始—运行,输入cmd回车,再输入X: 回车(X代表你的光盘盘符),再输入cd boot回车(进入boot目录)
再输入bootsect /nt60 sys回车
关闭所有窗口重启系统,重启系统后并没有双启动菜单,而是直接进入了VISTA系统了.
在控制面板里关闭用户帐户控制
然后以管理员身份运行命令提示符(默认的开始菜单里没有运行这一项,可以在搜索里直接搜命令提示符)
输入Bcdedit /create {legacy} /d “Description”回车(Description是指刚才复制的文件在安装xp的分区里的位置.)(如提示已有,不理它)
再输入Bcdedit /set {legacy} device boot回车
再输入Bcdedit /set {legacy} path ntldr回车
再输入Bcdedit /displayorder {legacy} /addlast回车
重启电脑就可以看到双启动菜单了
