"Windows XP 1" and "Windows XP 2"
« on: February 25, 2010, 03:54:43 AM »
Hello friends:
First, thank you very much for this page is a great job.
Sorry for my English.
Well:
I'm trying to boot Windows XP two systems.
I have a hard disk with two primary partitions.
A partition with Windows XP (1) and another partition with another Windows XP (2).
Then I have installed the "Plop Boot Manager" from a CD with the "Full install boot manager" option.
Well ...
When the "Plop Boot Manager starts, I would have on screen the following options:
Windows XP 1
Windows XP 2
FLOPPY
CDROM
USB

But ...
I only have these options on the screen:
"os harddisk 1"
FLOPPY
CDROM
USB

I have read in some forum message and I also read this section "Windows XP and Windows Vista dual boot with hidden (cleared) partitions"
But I do not understand very well and I have not achieved any positive result.
Please can someone help me?

Thanks and best regards.
Izham

Hello again:

Another point ....

The instructions say ..."Windows XP and Windows Vista dual boot with hidden (cleared) partitions"
"The boot manager created a profile called "os harddisk 1" to boot Windows XP. It also imported the 3 primary partitions. The names are HDA1, HDA2 and HDA3."

Well ....
I, in Setup, Profiles, I only have "os harddisk 1" ... I do not have HDA1, HDA2 or HDA3.

Please, anyone can help me?

Thanks and best regards.
