    i have xp pro setup on a 60gig partition of an 80gig drive. i've been using xp for quite awhile now. so i decided to install win2k pro on the remaining 20gig partition. i installed it and its running with no problems at all. the problem is i can't boot into xp. when i select it i get a message saying:

    "Windows 2000 could not start because the following files are missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\System32\Config\Systemd startup options for Windows 2000, press F8."

    i don't understand why i'm getting this message when i want to boot into xp. i even tried booting in safe mode but i get the same message. anyone have any idea on how i can fix this?

    Theres an ini file in the 2 OSs, that might need to be modified.

    Or you could just download boot magic and do it that way.
