Multi-boot problems NT&Win2K

If you are going to dual boot NT and 2000, you have to have SP4 or higher on the NT portion. Otherwise you will not be able to dual boot both of them.

hope this helps.

I seem to remember a problem like this a while back in which you had to run NT setup again and choose repair to fix the boot.ini and boot sector correctly.

There are twothings to remember n a dual boot.
One is that your nt4 partitions must be sp 4 or higher.
Two is that you must never upgrade youre harddisks to dynamic disks.
The last one is not reversible.

The computer already has SP6a installed. What does "dynamic disk" mean?
