No Option On Startup

  [email protected]© 18:34 19 Dec 2005

I have my hardrive split into 2 with Windows 2000 on 'C' and Xp Pro on 'F'. Problem is that when I boot the computer it doesn't give me the option as to which O/S I wish to use it just boots into XP. How do I make it give me the option please. Thanks.

Has it ever been dual-booting?

Try checking the boot options by going to Start, Run and type msconfig. Go to the boot.ini Tab and click 'check all boot paths'.

Done as you said and it says 'ok'. Only XP is listed although 2000 is on 'C' and XP is on 'F'. Well at least I think so!!!
