    Hey, I got windows 7 and I installed tinyvista. When I try switching on my laptop it doesn't take me to the boot manager; it goes straight to TinyVista. I'm really confuzzled on what to do. I went to msconfig and it didn't find windows 7
    Thanks in advance.

    The Vista bootloader doesn't pick up Windows 7. You need to stick the Win 7 DVD back in and do a repair with it.

    What about that one tool that fixes the MBR? I don't remember what it's called, but it should allow you to have a dual-boot option screen come up when you boot. This happens when you install an older OS on a different partition when you already have a newer OS installed.

    EDIT: This tool.
