Yeah, it looks a bit strange to me too
Strangely, you are able to boot.
And the answer to the question is yes, I have another bootable partition on my second hdd (I was thinking of installing Vista to it in the future, but never did it).
So, should I use that Recovery Console thing?
If both bootable partitions are NTFS, you can include both in the Boot.ini. A question will be asked during the "bootcfg /rebuild
" command process to that effect. The identifier should be different as to identify which partition will the computer boot from, but the options should be the same, /Fastdetect
. VISTA however is a different story. It does not use a Boot.ini file to boot. I believe is feasible, but we will jump that fence as soon as we get there.
If successful, you will have a dual boot at startup, where you will be able to select by means of a menu, which partition to boot from.
Keep me posted on the progress.
