Active Logical Volume

by Joseph Moore In reply to Active Logical Volume

I did that too. It happens.

To fix this, make a bootable floppy disk. Boot using the floppy, then go back into Disk Management and change the active partition to the correct partition.

To make a bootable floppy for Win2k, you need 3 files on afloppy:

NTLDR
NTDETEC.COM
BOOT.INI

You can get these files from the Win2K CD.
Plus, the BOOT.INI file must have the correct ARC pathing to the correct disk drive and partition for your machine.

Please read Technet article Q119467 for details on how to make the floppy:

hope this helps
