  1. Greetings All,

    I have a problem after running XP recovery. I have a dual boot computer with Xp on C: (Ist on machinne) and Win2k3 on D (Second): which was working perfect before my XP starts behaving very weird lately, To fix my XP I run XP recovery to my C: without saving old boot.ini. After this my Win2K3 on D: fail to start. First I was not getting booting option and then after reading from net I have added Win2k3 line in boot.ini but no soluction.

    Does anyone know how I should fix this issue and make sure that my Win2K3 works well on my D: as my Oracle apps was running on D which I do not want to re-installed?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Regards
    Ajit

    Can you try running a Win2K repair? Try booting with a "Ultimate Boot CD" You can create the CD by doing a google search. This boot CD will allow you to "repair" boot problems
