Boot.ini and XP/98
Posted on 2003-11-16
I (up until recently) had a dual boot system running 98 and XP.
I've had to reinstall XP (actually, do a recovery with the CD) and now I can only boot XP.
I know that in order to fix this i need to edit boot.ini or something, but i don't want to just edit it willy-nilly in case i stuff things up (which i have a habit of doing!)
So basically, i would like to know how to write a working boot.ini file , and where to put it in the system.
Something that might be of assistance:
I have two hard drives, a 20GB IDE and an 80GB SATA
The SATA is partitioned into two: approx 10GB for win98 and the rest for XP.
Naturally, the win98 is C: but the XP is E:\
(my 20GB data drive is D:)
