Hey guys just a quick question. I installed WIN XP then after that I installed Win 2k and now I have a problem booting up with WIN XP again. Is there a program I can use to revert back and forth between the two? thanks

it's because when you installed XP you hosed your boot manager that XP installed, just boot up with the XP cd, repair the installation and next boot up you should get the option for xp or 2k :)

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
