          You can use only one windows operating system at a time. You have to Format both of your drive that contains Windows XP and Windows 7. You can format your drive from the windows or when you will setup your windows. You will find format option when you will install your windows. Choose the drive that you want to format. Formatting your drives( both C and F drive) you can install a new operating system. You can use both windows by installing the windows XP and windows 7 accordingly to your hard disk. Use C and D drive to give windows and make windows 7 primary operating system.

          There are many ways to add boot menu of windows XP with windows 7. You can add automatically at the time of windows installation. In this case you need to install oldest windows first then the new one. That means first you need to install windows XP and then you need to install windows 7. In these process windows XP will automatically add its boot menu with windows 7.

          Or if you want to do it manually then start your computer. When count down menu comes like this Press [Windows]+[Break] to go towards boot setup menu. Then click the Advance System Setting. A task panel named “startup and recovery” will appear. In here you can select your default operating system XP or 7 as you want.

          This is very common problem when you use two operating systems in same drive. Better you chose windows 7 operating system; this will solve your problem. When you install windows 7 please format your system. It will delete your XP operating system. After formatting, your file will be deleted. So before format keep your valuable file.  Put your operating system in C drive.

Dear Gmfazlerabbee,

          I have studied your question that want to answer your question. your question includes 2 question. Let me split your complete question into parts and answer it.

          Your 1st question. My pc starts with OS choices and keyboard not working for selection?
Ans: First of all check that you either PS2 or USB keyboard. If you using US Keyboard then then check your PC BIOS support USB devices during startup or not. When you start computer press DEL, F2 or F12 to enter BIOS setup ad then Look for USB support in Advance BIOS features. I think this will solve your keyboard not working problem during startup.

          You want to use Windows XP?

          Ans: When you PC starts in Windows 7, go to control panel and Open System Properties. Here Click on Advanced tab, then click Setting under Startup & Recovery section. A new window will appear, select Earlier Operation System in drop down list under Default Operating System and set time to zero in "Time to display list of operating systems". Click OK and again click OK.

          Now restart your PC and you will logon to windows XP directly without operating system choices.
