Windows 2000 was having problems, but simply re-installing wasn't an option, wouldn't let me. Work around - in the root of the c: drive, when I made hidden and system files visible, I notice several files relating to the dual boot setup. I copied a number of files (can't remember all their names) to a floppy disc and moved the same files into a previously invisible folder called 'WUTemp' - I now realise this was a big mistake, this folder being 'windows update temp' folder, and apparently must be flushed - the files are no longer available.
What I can't understand, having right-clicked the same files and used the 'send to' floppy command, and having observed floppy noise and led activity, so presumably copied them, these too have disappeared!!
I needed to move these files from the root of the C: drive in order to be able to re-install windows 2000.
Why have these files disappeared from the floppy, were they even copied - more importantly, can I recreate the necessary files so that I am once again presented with two boot options at startup - Windows (98SE) or Windows 2000?
Even nicer - is it possible to get Windows 2000 to be the second option in the list, so if people don't do anything, the system will always boot into 98SE?
Help, help - I thought I was been clever working around, to re-install Windows 2000, but I hadn't bargained on my carefully thought out plan back firing by the files disappearing from the floppy disc or WUTemp folder
