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 :)

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
