Boot your XP CD. If you don't have one download either of these and create a bootable CD from the .iso fileXP Recovery ConsoleAnother XP Recovery Console
You don't burn the iso file itself to CD., you create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called DeepBurner
which will do this. Another called ISO Recorder
is also very easy to use.
Boot the CD and at the first opportunity, enter R
to start the Recovery Console.
Next, choose which XP installation you want to login to. Normally this will be 1.
Lastly you will be asked for the Administrator password. Just press the Enter key as the Administrator does not have a password (unless you gave it one, then you would enter it).
From the command prompt, enter bootcfg /rebuild
. This will rebuild the boot.ini that resides on the C: drive. It's a hidden, system, read only file.
Add both the W2K and the XP drive. Then you should be able to select which one to boot when you turn on the computer or reboot. Set the default to XP.
