    i have been trying to find a way to remove the hole of server 2000 for my pc without loosing XP pro SP2 or even just the boot log.. the problem i keep running into is everyone is telling me that its on a partition or a secondary hard drive… but.. its not…

    there are no partitions to this hard drive at all… im not the one that put it onto the pc.. so i dont even know how it worked at all..

      Logon to the 2000 Server.

      Click Start, Run and type in cmd and press Enter.

      at the command prompt type in cd\ and press Enter.

      then type in type c:\boot.ini > boot1.txt and press Enter.

      Logon to XP.

      and do the same as above only change the name of the file to boot2.txt

      Post the contents of the two files for us to
      have a look at. 😉

      While you are at it can you list the Folders on the C Drive?

      There should be 2 Windows Folders though they both may have other names.

      Though if you are basing your idea that there is only 1 Partition or HDD on the fact that both report that they are on the C Drive this is how Windows works in a Multi Boot Setup.

      It’s very uncommon to have 2 different OS on the Same Partition and have them both work correctly.
