I launched W2kpro from Win98 and all went well. I tried to image the Win98 partition with Drive Image. When it rebooted it never came back. I had to Sys C: to get Win98 to boot again.

How can I get W2Kpro to boot without doing another install and adding it to boot.ini?

Boot.ini is in Win98, but because I had to Sys.com it to get it to boot the W2kpro loader is not working.

Once time I had the same problem with NT4. I fixed it by running the NT4 setup until the first reboot, and then removing the "Windows NT4 setup" entry from boot.ini

Writing the boot loader, preserving the old two entries and adding a new one for the new install, is the first thing that the NT4 setup does

So launch Win2k setup and after the 1st reboot you have to be able to booting Win98, booting Win2k and making a new install of Win2k

simply boot Win98 then, and remove the new "Win2k setup" entry in boot.ini, and the temporary setup files from your HD, and it's done

if you delete an entry of boot.ini, be sure of changing the default entry if the deleted entry was the default

I hope this helps
