    Boot from 2 HD (XP home)

    Have an IBM HD and a Maxtor hd. Want my initial boot to be to the IBM. It currently defaults to the Maxtor. Have gone into the boot loader through Windows + break. How do I read the directions:multi(0)Disk(0)rdisk(1)Windows and so on
    the other line is multi(0)rdisk(0)partition(1) Windows and so on

    This article from Microsoft is a tad technical, but it should helps some:<UL><LI>102873 - BOOT.INI and ARC Path Naming Conventions and Usage[/list]What OS is installed on the IBM drive? Guiding your PC to default to that drive is different if it is a Windows 9x OS as opposed to the NT based systems (NT, 2000, and XP). Google the web for BOOT.INI and ARC and you'll find a ton of useful information.
