  1. hello everybody!!!

    i had win xp and win server 2003 on my hard disk.... one fine day i had some errors in win xp.... so i decided to delete winxp manually.. i mean deleted the windows folder of winxp from one of the drives... and then installed win xp again....
    Now i have a problem ... i'm not able to boot into win server 2003... whenever i try to boot by selectin win 2003 from the intial boot screen the system again reboots n comes back to the boot screen again.... so is there any way so that i can boot into win 2003????...
    the win xp is working fine... it has no problems whatsoever....

    Insert win2003/Xp installation cd/dvd and boot into manual repair mode = recovery console.

    log on to the windows 2003 installation
    when all goes fine, type the following to reconstruct your bootsector and re-init the windows xp/win2003 bootmenu.

    bootcfg /rebuild<enter>

    next you add the installations you want in the menu (it will search for available installations). you must specify a name and boot parameter. specify as boot parameters for the windows xp and windows 2003; /fastdetect /noexecute=alwaysoff

    when you added both.


    the system will restart and you will be able to boot in 2003 and xp.
    (if nothing else is corrupt).

    Good luck.
