      Description

      Well, first it was installed Windows XP SP 3 on NTFS partition (1st picture). After that I installed ROS 20170503-r74459 (2nd & 3rd pictures). When the computer rebooted, I choose Unknown Operating System. Windows XP didn't start, only black screen and non-blinking cursor (5.png).
      So, in the root of ReactOS partition are several files, which contains configure of Freeloader. One of them is bootsect.old, which as I think must contain bootsector of previous installed operating system. I replaced this file by dump of the zero sector from Windows XP partition (6.png). I used an Alkid LiveCD to perform this operation. After this manipulation XP has booted successfully (7.png & 8.png)
      I think that the problem lies in the incorrect copying of previous bootsector. Maybe readable LBA sets incorrectly. I'm not a programmer, so I can't fix it by myself.
