I've managed to install and quad-boot between Win7 HP, Vista Biz, XP Pro, and Win2000 on an HP dc5700 desktop PC that is not my main PC. I've even managed to get Windows Update working and applied all updates in Win2000, using the helpful posts in this forum. The only issue I'm having is when I boot into Windows 2000, my XP partition displays as unformatted. There isn't anything wrong with the XP partition, I can boot into XP fine. Ultimately this is not a huge issue as I do not need to share files between any Windows boot partitions. I just find it odd and would like to understand why this happens. I've attached a screenshot from the Disk Management tool in W2000. The 16GB free space at the end of the disk is actually my XP partition.
