Hi. I have 2 identical WD320 SATA drives. Drive C: which has Windows XP Pro installed, and drive D: which has XP pro installed.
Drive C: is reserved for General PC use and Drive D: is for exclusive use of Flight Simulator.
The purpose of having the 2 installs is that when I boot to the "Flight Simulator" XP install, there is nothing else running, and only SP's have been added to it.
On finishing both installs (The D: drive install being done last), as expected I was presented with a boot menu. Thus:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Flight Simulator
My C:\Boot.ini file looks like this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn /usepmtimer
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Flight Simulator" /fastdetect
The problem is when I select "Microsoft Flight Simulator" the PC loads the Windows XP Black screen then goes BSOD with error "STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"
If I select Microsoft Windows XP" option it boots up fine.
When in C: Drive XP. can see the windows install on the other D: Drive and can read and write to it.
The layout of my drives in XP Disc Management looks like the picture attatched :
Memory and both drives check out OK.
BIOS sees SATA 1 and 2 Drives.
Thankyou for any help! Cheers Chris
