Problems with Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista
The file BOOT.INI contains the information on which partition Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista is installed. In this case the information concerns the position of the partition in the partitioning table of the master boot record (empty entries are only counted while bootmanager BootStar is installed). That means that the master boot record partition table and the file BOOT.INI from Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista have to be in agreement with one another.
The position in the master boot record partition table can be set in the bootprofile ("Positions in MBR").
The position in the BOOT.INI can be set as follows:
The information specified in "partition(1)" is decisive. If needed, all specifications entered have to be corrected! The specification for the first partition is the number 1.
If Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista is installed after the bootmanager BootStar, then these problems will not occur.
Note for the profi mode:
While the bootmanager BootStar is installed in the profi mode, empty entries are always counted as well as along as the "BootStar Dummy" entries are activated. Otherwise, the empty entries are ignored.
Windows NT: Installation above 2 GB:
Installation on 2nd harddisk:
To install from the 2nd hard drive, the power has to be disconnected to the 1st hard drive. After the installation of Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista is complete, the power is reactivated.
Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista requires the files NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM, and BOOT.INI for booting. These files are usually located in the same partition, in which Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista has been installed.
However, if Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista has been installed after another Microsoft operating system (e.g., Windows 95/98/ME), these files are located in the partition of the first Microsoft operating system.
If this is the case, you have to copy these files to the Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista partition "manually" after installing the bootmanager BootStar.
