Hi,

I facing a problem to install dual os in my PC.

My situation is like this:-

I have existing Windows XP in my C Drive. How am going to install Windows Server 2003 in my others partition (D Drive)? Since my OS CD is not bootable.

I try before is copy the OS installation files to D Drive, then use startup disk to install when the path is D:\OS\i368\winnt.exe (since setup.exe is not able to run in MS Dos). But the system ask me to format the C Drive first, then just can continue, (C Drive is my Windows Xp System)

How am i going to install the windows server 2003  in dual boot? Please advise.
Thanks

Danny

The windows 2003 CD should be bootable.  You might want to obtain a new copy of the CD and boot from it.  From there you can pick which drive/partition you want Windows installed on in text mode of the setup.  You may have to edit your boot.ini in the root of C:\ to allow booting to both OS.

You must have a burn of the windows 2003 CD that was done incorectly.  All W2k3 CDs are bootable, obtain a new copy that has been burned correctly or get a original copy.
