  1. I have a problem! I have looked at the forums here about dual booting problems with server 2000 and xp pro. I'm lost and none of the threads have helped. My problems is that I install server 2000 on first( C:), update it and then install xp pro on the next partion (E:). I'm using a 500 gig sata drive and making two partions of 100 gig each. My problem is that when I finish the install of xp pro and reboot to finish any of the changes it needs to make. I reboot again and try to get into the server 2000 OS, but it won't let me because it says it's not bootable. I'm I doing some thing wrong? I let the server reboot everytime it says to and same with xp pro. So what do I need to do to get the server 2000 up and running again? Thanks for any help, it's my first timje trying to dual boot a system!!!!!!

    You might need to install a 3rd Party Boot Manager
