I would like to post this new thread regarding this simple issue:
I have a hard disk with several partitions: C, D, E, F... I installed WINDOWS XP on partition D (NTFS) and then I installed WINDOWS ME on partition C (FAT-32). After doing this, I am not able to set up a correct boot loader to boot WINDOWS ME and WINDOWS XP.
For accessing Windows ME, I have to use a boot floppy disk and execute: SYS C:, so after booting I am able to start Windows ME. But I cannot start Windows XP now.
To access Windows XP, I have to use the XP install disk and go into recovery options and run command: BOOTCFG, BOOTFIX, etc. Then I am now able to start Win XP, but not able to start Win ME.
This sucks, and I know I shoulda installed ME first and then Windows XP. However, I don't think I have to reinstall windows XP so that I have a working BOOT LOADER. I have been messing with BOOT.INI file so that I have a graphical option to boot any OS, but when I try to start WIN ME, I gave a system error (file HAL.DLL corrupted, although I double checked that file exist on the partition D).
After this long description, is there a way to adjust my boot.ini so that I am able to boot either OS (ME or XP). Further info available on request.
