partition and boot manager

by DanLM In reply to dual boot

I would create a seperate partition for the installation of win 2000. Then I would use a boot manager. I've never dual booted 2 windows systems, only windows/unix. And it automatically asked me about which system I wanted to boot from.

Partion Magic

by robert.gloess In reply to partition and boot manage ...


I would highly recommend getting hold of Norton Partion Magic. It make the job very easy. Yiu install it onto your existing XP partion, then tell it to make a new partion for Windows 2K. Then install windows 2k, preferably from a boot CD. During setup it will ask you what partion you would like to install on, select the new one you have created with partion magic and hey presto, a dual boot system. As Dan said before you need a boot Manager, this is easly solved, windows on boot will ask you to select either 2k or xp, there you go, a dual boot system..
