I need to ask for help about how to change windows XP name at startup. I have installed 2 WIN XP and I want to give them different names when the system shows me the text like this after booting:

"Select windows XP professional"


hi, marjan, is it possible to dual boot xp with xp?

anyway, you just want to edit the boot loader so you can have a choice of which is which to load right?

check out this one >>> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/289022


Right Click on 'My Computer'\Properties\Advanced(Tab)\Startup And Recovery(Settings)\ Then click 'Edit' Under 'System Startup'...You Will have something like

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Change the names inside the double inverted comas("") From "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" to "WHATEVER"....

P.S. >> I haven't tried this, do it at your own risk
