ARC Path for mirrored C-drive

Hello,

My boot.ini should be changed because I installed a second hard drive and mirrored the C:. The help-file says I should have seen a message with the new ARC Path after mirroring but I missed that ...

Boot.ini is now:
[boot loader]
timeout=1
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /fastdetect

the mirror is on Disk 1
disks are identical, SATA

Thanx,
Frank

Try this if they are on the same controller

[boot loader]
timeout=1
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server - Mirror" /fastdetect


And this if they are on different controllers:

[boot loader]
timeout=1
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /fastdetect
multi(1)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server - Mirror" /fastdetect
