Hi John,

Thanks for your help. I'll give it a try right now and will tell you.
Anyway, I did try yesterday with and without sata drivers, without any
results.
I did use also the recovery console and the bootcfg to fix the boot.ini, but
it didn't work, as I have two boot.ini files.
I feel better as I know I'm not the only to struggle ;)

Cheers

Don't know if it will change anything for you but I used the /add option of
bootcfg to add the new entries without changing the original entries. also
if you name the os entries differently when you do it you can recognize the
new entries and you can get rid of the boot.ini that isn't being used.
