Hi. Imagine the following situation : I have Windows ME installed in C drive and Windows XP Pro installed in D drive. My machine can boot the 2 systems without any problems. Assume Windows ME has a problem and I found my self forced to FORMAT the C drive and reinstall Windows ME again in C drive. Now, my machine has a clean copy of WinXP but it can't find it and boot it since the C drive is formatted. How can I make my computer find WinXP system without reinstalling it in D drive ?
Depending on the boot loader in ME there may be a hidden file c:/boot.ini You can edit this file (search the web for the required extra bits) and enable it yourself. I've done this to remove nonexistent boots, but not to add them.
