Earlier today I purchased a 60 GB Hard Drive and decided to partition it two ways and load both Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Well, everything went great at first. I loaded XP onto one partition, and then 2000 on the other. Windows 2000 loads just fine but now when I try to load Windows XP, the computer thinks that I am trying to load windows 2000 and comes up with the following message:

"Windows 2000 could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\systemd startup options for Windows 2000, press F8."

I don't know what went wrong but if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks.

I think I've seen this problem before. In the case I saw, the Default value in the Boot.ini file were missing. You may have to fix it using the Windows Recovery Console.

Hi iamcanadia. Thanks for the links. None of them solved my problem (I really hope that doesn't sound rude because I really don't mean it to) but they did help point me in the right direction. After about an hour and a half or so of further searching, I discovered that all I had to do was copy the NTLDR file from the Windows XP disk to the root directory of my computer. Thanks again!

If you had installed Win2k first and then XP, you wouldn't have had a problem. Always install the older software first. This rule includes the various versions of MS Office.

jgoo, I'm guessing you're wanting both OS's on there for learning purposes. I would highly recommend you check out either VMware or VirtualPC. Personally, I'm partial to VMware, but VirtualPC is less expensive. They are amazing products!
