    Problem after xp installation for dual boot with windows 8


    Hi
    I have a sony vaio vpcyb3v1e. I have windows 8.1 installed and i tried using a bootable usb to install as multi boot, the xp black edition on a separate partition. After doing that i couldn't be able to login in the windows 8.1 OS. I got the message Load needed DLLS for kernel.
    Any help?

    Set the UEFI/BIOS firmware to LEGACY OS boot & Secure Boot DISABLED, see if LEGACY Windows will boot.
    with win 8.1 DVD choose automatic repair

    Hi there
    I believe the XP Black edition is a PIRATE copy so unfortunately helping you fix the problem is against Forum Rules.

    These editions aren't allowed to be discussed.

    Cheers

    I tried all the above but finally the only thing that worked was using a bootable usb with windows 8 and by command prompt and commands fixboot; fixmbr and rebuildbcd.
    This was my solution and i hope to help anyone else in my position. Appreciate your help!

    glad you sorted it out
    When you install Windows XP, it’ll remove the bootmgr/BCD used by newer versions of Windows (Vista, 7, & 8) and use its own instead.
    that ruined the boot manager of win 8
    this happend to me but automatic repair worked for me and it fixed the boot automatically
