    Hello :)...
    I've just installed Win ME after XP (NTFS), and, obviously, I've not the native XP's dual boot..
    Ok, I can install XOSL i.e.....but I'd like to rebuild the original dual boot.

    I know how to obtain this with XP on FAT32...but I can't find a right method on NTFS.

    Have you any information about this?

    Thx, dav :)

    run a repair installation of XP or use the recovery console to fix XP boot.

    If you are dual booting always install the older (Me) system first and dual boot with both as FAT32, as one File system does not recognise the other

    to dual boot anything with xp. you need to install xp first. get that install up and running. then install me. if you can't boot to your install of me then you will need to edt the boot.ini flile in the xp install.

    this is what yours should look like:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional"
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\Windows="Microsoft Windows Me"

    that should do it for you.
