XP Bootloader

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
