XPSP1 Problem

    I run a dual boot XP and W2000. I ran XPSP1 beta build 1089 (had it on a zip drive) just to see. Ran fine, but when I went to boot into W2000 I got a message that my WINNT directory system32 file was corrupted and I should try to repair.

    Well, I keep Ghost backups of all my drives, so I merely reran a copy of W2000 I made last Friday, rebooted and still had the same problem. To me this meant that the beta on the XP drive had done something to my boot.ini file in all probability.

    So I reran my XP drive from a Ghost made yesterday w/o the beta. Guess what, everything than ran fine, after reboot. So the beta caused the problem.

    Question: Anyone else seen this and if so has the problem been corrected on newer builds and will it then be OK when the final is released.

    Thank God for Ghost... Please advise

    If it is your boot.ini file, then you can create a back up of it, or simply edit it yourself after installing SP1...

    it probably will be by the time the full version is out, you downloaded build 1089, thats already pretty old
