Multiple installations on same computer supported?

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

i have installed XP to the active primary partition using the USB_MultBoot2 tool. Afterwards i wanted to put a second installation of XP onto another logical partition. Therefore i created a new USB stick (this time with USB_MultBoot3) and booted the textsetup from it, which, as usually, finishes with a reboot. I then again booted from USB stick and selected the '... continue setup ...' option hoping to run the graphical setup. But instead the firstly installed XP is booted.

How can i run / continue the graphical setup? Is this not possible with the current USB_MultBoot version or is it not possible with the USB_MutlBoot design approach at all?

Thanks for your help and best regards,

Non Standard Install of Windows XP on Second Partition is possible and

is treated in the Help_USB_MultiBoot4.txt file Section C.

It requires a different boot.ini file named Part2_boot.ini

USB_MultiBoot4.cmd allows you to select the proper boot.ini file,

so that reboot occurs from Second Partition.
