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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
