98 is on C: drive (fat32) and xp is on D: drive (NTFS)]
Then screensaver would activate in 98 after 3 seconds or so of inactivity. Screen saver panel changes would not take so I tried to do clean install of win 98.
First I booted using win98 rescue floppy.
Then I cleared all file attributes on files in c:\, backed-up these files on D: (would later regret using this drive!) and deleted all files on c:\.
Next I ran deltree c:\windows and reinstalled win98 from the CDROM
To my dismay, the multiboot option now does not appear when I boot up. It goes directly into 98.
Tried to boot off of the XP CD (set BIOS to boot off of CD first, then floppy, then fixed disk) but that didn't work so I downloaded the boot xp install from floppy file from MS website. The problem is that I have no option to reinstall xp without overwriting the current installation.
Do you think that a correctly configured boot.ini file in c:\ would fix this mess? Please advise. Have tried everything I could think of but to no avail. I'm reluctant to wipe out my current xp installation if at all possible
Thanks in advance for any input you may have.
