  1. I am trying to dual boot xp pro and xp X64 on two physical hard drives. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. This is what my boot.ini files look like.

    [boot loader]
    timeout=60
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Pro" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP X64" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

    Both drives are enabled in the bios and I tried switching the boot order.
    I can boot to one and the other gets an error about the drive config. settings.

    I would appreciate any help. Thanks In Advance.
