Repair dual boot win 98 & win 2kLocked
Had to reinstall win 98 (full format of partition ) recently on a dual boot machine and like the idiot that i am i never backed up any of the files needed for the dual boot ( boot.ini etc ). So now win 2k wont boot for me.
I have tried adding the files nessacary (ntdect, ntldr, bootsect.dos ) and manually writing the boot.ini file pointing to the partition that has win 2k on it (multi(o)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\winnt =”win 2k”. I have then run the fixboot command from the recovery console of the win 2k cd. This give’s me the chioce at the start but when i choose win 2k it says the the start up files can’t be found.
Another thing i have noticed is that the win 2k CD doesn’t recoginise the ntfs partition where win 2k is installed, instead it says its an OS/2 partition. I have used partition magic to make the partition and its a hidden partition.
Any help or advice would be gratefully recieved.
