Boot.ini file

by bart777 In reply to Dual boot

You need to edit the boot.ini file on the C drive. Right now it's pointing to the server installation with no time out setting.

If you open the file and edit the timeout setting to at least 15 seconds that should give you enough time to choose the OS you want to boot into.

First set your computer

by IC-IT In reply to Dual boot

To boot from DVD. After a bit of loading select repair and choose Startup repair. this will fix your Vista boot and may also add 2003. If that fails Boot into Vista.
Use bcdedit from the Vista installation Disk.
Basically you will use bcdedit from an elevated command prompt.
