mutibooting

By azamup ·
I will be grateful for the help me solving two problems:
1. I have Installed Windows95OSR2.5 on the one partition and second partition (FAT16 ) is available about 2GB. I have installed the windows NT within the windows 95 on the same PC I restart the system but to my astonish after two to tree times rebooting the system the dual boot screen at the initialization time disappears and what I left with is only “Starting Windows95”. Please help me to get back my NT coz the second partition still contains the NT contents .
2. when I start the system (WIN95OSR2.5 only OS) and sometime want to work into the DOS 6.22 at the very startup and choose the opt. “previous version of DOS” it work fine into the previous DOS (Which is installed first before installing the WIN95OSR2.5), but as and when I restart the system to work into the Windows95 OS there is no OS just blank starting screen. So I have to transfer the W95OSR2.5 OS for booting, this happened every time when Iuse mutibooting.

You haven't "lost" your NT Installation it is still there what you'll have to do is run a repair from the installation diskettes oor CD ROM.
I had the same problem as you are the thing was that either an Anti Virus Software or Disk utility has overwritten the Boot Sector there fore you cannot see the boot menu so the best bet is to run the repair and restore the starup enviornment.
Hope this helps.................

I agree with the first answer about a repair installation to get access to your NT partition.

I've never had a particularly good time with Microsoft's multi-booting but I have found that both System Commander and Magic Boot work well and even theLinux boot loader LILO works better.

Surprisingly works better.

Insert your 3-disks for NT setup, or the CD, but sometimes the 3-disks work better, and specifically, run "repair system files"...
