I have done mirroring in windows 2000 server and boot.ini files content is as below

[boot loader]
timeout=30
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 As [Normal]" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server As [Mirror]" /fastdetect

when both hard disks are connected i could boot from any one of the above options

Just to simulate realtime situation, i disconnected one of the hard disk. now i could boot only thro first option ..... [Normal]

when i tried  [ mirror] option i got the following msg

windows 2000 could not start because of computer disk hardware configuration problem. could not read from selected boot disk. check boot path and disk hardware.


Now i connected both the hard  disk  and tried to boot from mirror i got blue screen fatal error.

i booted thro [norma] and when i went to computer management , the mirrored hard disk was deactivated .

can some body explain the flow here


regards

If you only want to boot up to the mirrored drive, then do as follows

Right click on my computer
Click on Advanced Tab
Click on Startup and Recovery
Make sure that Which ever one you want is highlighted in the Default Operating System, such as [mirror] or [normal]
Once you have the right one highlighted Uncheck the box next to Display list of Operating systems for __  seconds

jolly good
