Dual Boot
KeithF Nov-07-01 11:49 PM
Is it possible to create a dual boot to a second instance of 98SE on a the same Drive or another. If so How would I go about it without disturbubing my existing install too much.

to dual boot you need to have 95/98/ME installed first, then install NT/2000/XP. When installing choose clean install, and put it on another partition then 98se is on.

Pentium 3 1000 @ 1100 ( windows 2000 server), Abit bx-133, 256 Mb Mushkin Rev.3 cas 2-2-2, ATI Radeon
AMD Thunderbird 1.4 @ 1.63 (24/7) IWILL KK266R , Corsairs pc 150 cl2, Leadtek GeForce 3

I dont't really want to put NT/2000 or XP on my system.
I already have 98SE installed but because I want to do a fair bit of Video editing I thought I would benifit from a clean boot to a second installation of 98SE with only my 1394 and graphics drivers as TSR's and not the usual dross that I have installed for other bits and bobs.

No sir, don't wanna mess with XP stuff yet ! something to do with a shortage of spherical devices in my anatomical structure.

"It cannot be configured to boot multiple versions of Windows 9X (Windows 95, 98, 98 SE, and Me) because they use the same boot file; however, there are third party utilities which can do it." E.G., Acronis OSSelector (http://www.acronis.com/products/oss50/list.html), Paragonís Partition Manager (http://www.partition-manager.com/n_pm_main.htm), PowerQuest's Partition Magic (http://www.powerquest.com/partitionmagic/).

Thanks (Yet again !) Larry, Thought it sounded too easy a solution for me.
