I have BootMagic installed on a Win ME - XP dual boot machine and I want to uninstall and use XP boot manager. If I uninstall BootMagic will XP boot manager find the ME partition? Do I need to go into recovery console and run fixMBR, fixboot, and bootcfg /restore?

I really would think so - APK will have a better idea I bet he pops up in a short space of time :p

Perhaps I was not clear in my statement. I don't want to uninstall ME, just BootMagic. I'm concerned that XP won't see the ME partition after I uninstall BootMagic.

Go here and see if XP sees it now. Control Panel> System> Advanced tab> Startup and Recovery button> There's a pull-down menu at the top of that page. Is ME listed in there? If it is, I think you'll be ok to get rid of bootmagic. If it's not, you'll need to modify your "boot.ini" file (on the root of your XP drive) to also list your ME system. I'm running a single OS or I'd post an example of my boot.ini. Maybe someone running a dual setup will post there's here for you as an example.
