Sorry bout the header to this msg, not sure what happened, it should read:
Dual boot W2k, W98SE prob with "invalid system disk"
I have Win98SE installed, then installed Windows 2000 Professional and made a dual-boot configuration. I used C:\ for Win98, and E:\ for W2k.
Everything was working fine until last night.
when I boot, there are 2 choices, Windows 2000 Professional or Windows, (w98)
When I select Windows 2000 Professional, it boots and runs fine.
When I select Windows, for windows 98, I get "Invalid System Disk" hit any key.
I went online in W2k and scanned for viruses, I didn't have any.
I tried W2k repair method using W2k boot CD-ROM and emergency repair disk. I used the repair option, That didn't work either. Somewhere along the line during repair, the repair screen says it can only repair Windows 2000. So I guess I cannot repair my W98 system boot files with W2k repair.
Do I need to try to re-install W98?
I have read several times in a dual-boot configuration that W98 setup will overwrite critical W2k files and
(W98 should be installed 1rst, then W2k), not the other way around.
Can anyone point me in the right direction about my Error and dual boot?
I use Win98 more often to surf the web, (safer than W2k) and all my CDR, DVDR apps are on W98.
Thank you for reading this,
