well, I was using these two hard drives in different machines, so the boot.ini in the slave drive looks like this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
and that is the same pointer that is used to go to the master drive.
Can you write what I need to put here because I can't figure it out.
To recap: I have two hdd's with windows on them that I want to dual boot. One is set to slave and the other to master, but they are both on the same IDE cable. The master drive is labled drive 0 on the IDE cable, and the slave drive is drive 1. I can't copy the lines from the slave drive's boot.ini into the master's because they are the same.
