Have an dilema here. Running dual harddrive machine. Drive 0 has my corporate data with SafeBoot running under Windows XP.
The second harddware was to be used to "dual boot" into Windows 7 to test various software products and leave my corporate drive alone.
Installed Windows 7 Pro today onto the second drive, didn't have any issues with that.
However, not I cannot boot into my Safeboot drive (Windows 7 possibly changed the MBR I assume?)
What can I do to get my Safeboot drive back up and running? Do I just use a Windows XP Boot disk and fixmbr or is there a specific one I need from Safeboot?
Note: My intention was not to have a boot menu with both OS's, I'm fine with using the BIOS menu to select which drive to boot from (that way I don't have to worry what SafeBoot does to the MBR in future etc).

To fix this you're going to need two special pieces of equipment - A voucher for beer, and some chocolate cake - give both to your helpdesk and ask them PLEASE fix your machine.
There's nothing you can do yourself - you need your helpdesk and the data about the encryption they hold to repair this.
