Problem with dual OS and hard booting

By SridharSR ·
I have installed Win NT 4.0 workstation and Windows 2000 Professional (Workstation) on my computer on 2 separate partitions. Before I installed Win 2000, I was able to hard boot by pressing the reset button (after shutting down Win NT 4.0). But after I installed Win 2000, the hard boot seems to be disabled somehow. After shutting down windows, i am not able to switch off the computer by pressing the reset button. I have to select "restart the computer" in the shutdown menu of windows (Both OS). When the computer restarts, I can switch off the machine using the reset button ( while the system is booting). Can anyone tell me how to regain the reset button ?

On my Dual Boot system, NT + W2K, when I shut down W2K turns of the processing unit, and leaves the Monitor on. Then I just press the button on the processor unit and it starts again. The feature is 'by design' for W2K.
