Configuring Win98/XP dual boot sysyetm
Posted on 2005-04-21
I have just purchased a Seagate Barracuda 80gb hdd and want to add this into my existing system and configure a Win98/XP dual boot system.
I have Windows 98 running on the existing hard drive, and a dvd writer on the secondary [primary] so the new Seagate will be fitted as the secondary [slave]. I want to load Windows XP on the second hard drive and and configure a Win98/WinXP dual boot system. Is this a relatively simple procedure? Partition Magic and other types of software have been mentioned in posts on this subject, is this the way to go?
My comp has two soundcards, a Yamaha SW1000XG and a Creative Soundblater Live. I had some problems getting the two cards to function together when setting up my system, does anybody forsee problems with hardware compatibility when the second hard drive is added?
Any advice on setting up 98/XP dual boot sytems would be greatly appreciated.
