Problems with Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista
NTLoader - BOOT.INI:
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. 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 boot image ("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.
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.
A small "boot partition" has to be created on the 1st hard drive. The size for this "boot partition" should be equal to the size of the named file or the "swap file."
Format (FAT 16) this partition with this program!
Then copy the files NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM, and BOOT.INI from the Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista partition to this "boot partition." The files have to have the attributes "S," "H," and "R".
The file BOOT.INI also has to list the 2nd harddisk in "rdisk()":
If necessary, all entered specifications have to be corrected! The entered specification for the first harddisk is a "0" (zero).
