  2. It's a custom machine. So, check this out, I went to open the drive again in the hex editor and it was back at 10? I pasted yours over, saved, closed and opened it again and it was still 10! So wtf is that about? Is there something preventing it from saving? Derek
  3. here u go. bootsect.zip
  4. ok, I made the HEX change and saved it. Made a menu.lst, there was none there cause I had renamed the old like you told me to b4. I rebooted and still the same.
  5. BOOTPART Physical number of disk 0 : 62686268 0 : C:* type=c (Win95 Fat32 LBA), size= 15609888 KB, Lba Pos=8064 Physical number of disk 1 : 217934c 1 : D:* type=e (Win95 XInt 13), size= 1000912 KB, Lba Pos=63 when i do the LBA switch it says C:\lba written C:\BOOT.INI updated also does that with the last bootpart code. it doesn't write to bootsect.lba my new boot.ini [Boot Loader] timeout=30 Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [Operating Systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Boot-Logo)" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /KERNEL=NTOSBOOT.EXE multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="USB Repair NOT to Start Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect C:\lba="boot:c:" C:\lba="c:\bootsect.lba" bootsect.zip
  6. Root (hd1,0) Filesystem type is fat, partition type 0xc
  7. ok, i got through all except the last bootpart cmd. I get "Error in parameters". I triple checked it and it is exactly as you typed. I even checked the bootpart site.
  8. didnt get email about this. ok, so here is the first couple things the first set of map commands did what it does when I force it to try and boot from hd the 2nd set did same thing Last set actually booted to the windows boot menu where i choose which version to start. Derek
  9. ok,so all those files exist in both roots. grldr is in root of stick here is boot.ini from C [Boot Loader] timeout=30 Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [Operating Systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Boot-Logo)" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /KERNEL=NTOSBOOT.EXE multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="USB Repair NOT to Start Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
  10. THanks, I will check as soon as I get home. One question I can answer is that XP is installed on C:
  11. sorry, was early, wasn't thinking. 1. Using USB_MultiBoot.cmd from here 2. XP SP3 3. I don't recall getting the menu, just boots to XP.
  12. So I got everything installed ok from my USB drive, but if I remove it and reboot, I just get a black screen with flashing underscore and won't let me boot. When I put the USB back and reboot, it goes fine. Any ideas? Derek
