set sytem and boot volumes for dual boot

By D.C. ·
I am trying to install two Operating Systems on one hard drive under two different partitions. The issue is that I need to have the primary/system drive be different on each partition. The default installation sets the system volume on the same partition for both OS install.
Is there a way I can set the system volume before the system is loaded???
I am aware that Win2000 does not allow you to rename the active sytem and boot volumes.

Any workarounds.
Thanks

Using FDISK or Partition Magic, create two primary partitions on the disk. Set the first one to active and install the first operating system. Go back into FDISK or Partition Magic and set the second partition to active and install the second operating system. If you are using Partition Magic, you can than use their Boot Magic utility to switch between the two systems. Otherwise, you will have to do it manually with FDISK.
