Problems with dual boot xp pro & xp pro 64

Posts: n/a
I have xp pro on partition 1 of a hard drive and 64 on partation 2. I
installed xp pro first installed all drivers software ect... Then attempted
to install 64. Install for 64 went fine booted up into windows and
everything. Took 64 cd out restarted and it went straight into xp pro with
giving me the option for dual boot. Checked the boot ini file in xp pro and
there is only the string for xp pro under operating systems. 64 will on boot
up if i put the 64 cd in cd rom restart and dont click boot from cd. Where it
says "press any key to boot from cd" The cd knows how to start 64 but neither
my computer or i do. I think to problem is with the boot ini file. It seems
like 64 didnt create a bootini file. Help me please. Also attempted to
reinstall 64 and still no luck. Please Help.

If the problem is the boot.ini file, try this one. It has exactly the config
you describe.

[boot loader]
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windo ws XP Professional x64
Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP
Professional SP2" /fastdetect
