Windows 2k->1st hdd, win98->2nd hdd, how to boot win98 without changing boot sequence in BIOS
cool_nm Oct-19-01 06:52 PM
I added one hdd few days back. I then installed Win2k pro. on it when my older hdd was unplugged. My older hdd had win98.
Now the newer hdd is Primary Master and the older one is Primary Slave.
I want to start Win98 by using Win2k's dual boot facility. How do I do that?

Should I create a file boot.ini in c:\ with the entry
'd:\ older windows'

(I don't want to use other boot loaders like XOSL)

I'm out of time... if you swap the drives and do a Win 2K install with both drives present on top of the original install (now on D: ) up to about step 14 or 15 at http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/software/windows/dual/index.html that should achieve the desired affect. Just get it to the point that it writes the boot stuff to the C: drive and abort. Larry
