Why a dual boot XP/W2 fails?

By blasman ·
I tried to create a dual boot Compaq D510, by loading XP first and W2K later, using separate partitions. This failed, after W2k load. So did the reverse loading. Any clues why?
(I'd rather not use the System Commander).

it should work on separate volumes. mskb says you need to install xp last so maybe that was your problem...

After a couple of experiments in different OS sequence, I agree that loading W2K first works.
