Question about dual booting


Mr. Ass

I currently have Win XP pro installed.... im gonna fresh install (boot from cd) and install it on another ntfs partition.... will my computer automatically configure itself for the dual booting.. if not what do i have to do? (and dont say use boot magic cuz i tried that and it wont work with ntfs partitions for some reason):D :D :D :D :D :D

not sure

But if it was win98 then win98 would need to be installed first seeing as it is win2k and both are gonna be on ntfs file systems I believe that it will be able to set itself up right, if not after you get back you could run the drive manager and you should be able to fix any little problems

so just to clarify. if u have XP on a partition of another drive, i can create a second partition in disk management, reboot and boot a windows 2k CD,a nd install it on the new (second) parition on the same drive.

and it will automatically take care of the dual booting (it will modify boot.ini)? after 2k is installed, i can reboot and i will see my choices?

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
