Dual Boot: 2kPro + XP ProLocked
I have one drive divided in 3 partitions – 2 primary and one logical (for data). I then installed Win2k Pro in the primary partition [C:]. After installing SP3 and drivers in Win2k, I went on to install WinXP Pro with SP1 in the other primary partition (strangely tagged [E:]). XPPro Setup recognized my existing Win2k installation and went on. As soon as the XP installation was done, I tried rebooting to check if the Win2k installation could boot. I chose Win2k from the boot options menu and was met with nothing (no display or response whatsoever). I have duplicated this problem twice. There is nothing wrong with my boot.ini. I have tried fixing Win2k using recovery console and automatic recovery, but I end up having Win2k working and the XP option in the 2k (replaced XP) boot menu pointing to Win2k as well. In a way, I just reversed the problem. I hope someone out there could help me. This is getting really frustrating.
