Dual boot win 98se and win xp pro


I have windows 98se on Partition 1 (C:/) and data on second Partition (D:/) of the first harddrive. Installed a new Harddrive which now is (D:/) the old one is (E:/) but when i installed windows Xp Pro on the new harddrive (D:/) its own partition it will not give me the option when I bootup to select win98se or win xp pro.

Is there anything that I can do to resolve this issue.

Hi sefd3009,
Try fixing the boot sector via Recovery Console. Here is a description of the Recovery Console, including how to invoke and use it.
Try first the FIXBOOT command. If that doesn't work, try the BOOTCFG command.
