Hello,.. here is my situation..
I am setting up a dual boot system on a 10,000 rpm WD drive.
I created 2 partitions and installed x64 (22 gigs) on one partition and xpPRO (13gig) on the other partition.
I want the (NTLDR ?) boot menu to come up when i start my computer (so that i cant choose which OS) and for x64 to be the 1st option.
Currently if i press f8 during the Asus flash screen a blue box pops up asking me if i want to boot from my master or slave drive... if i select the slave drive the boot menu will appear asking me which os i want to boot. Both OS's will boot but xpPRO seems a bit unstable when i try to open pro tools LE (which is the only program i want to run on the xpPRO partition).
If i dont press f8 during the asus spash screen my computer boots from x64 with no boot menu.
I was looking around in my BIOS (yes i have the newest BIOS and all drivers to my knowledge) and i cant seem to figure it out. I have done this before and it worked properly...
any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
o.. my setup because some will ask
amd X2 4400+
2 Gigs Corsair Ram
WD 10,000 rpm SATA Master
Seagate 200g 7,200rpm Slave
sorry- that was too long
