    I have XP on C: and 2k3 Server on D:, I can't get it to boot from the D:. In the field rdisk(X) I have tried from 0 to 4 and each time it says OS is missing.

    What am I doing wrong? :dunno:

    I've never tried to use a dual boot system, but I think I remember hearing you have to install XP last. If you installed it first, that could be the problem. :dunno:

    if D is a seperate HDD it won't be disk(0), but disk(1) i believe, though I never use Windows to control my dual boots, even if it is all windows.

    Just toss on GRUB and all your problems will be solved.

    no, rdisk should be 1. If you set drive D as the bootable drive, does it work? This would check to see if the the installation is valid by bypassing the boot.ini
