    I have just installed Vista (Home Premium), having been on Windows 2000 for a while. I want to run both of them.

    I have installed vista on a second drive and it boots fine. But there is no dual boot option, it just boots straight to Vista. What have I done wrong?

    I can see the windows 2k drive in vista.

    Has it got anything to do with my drive set up, here is what vista reported when I installed.

    Primary (Disc 0, partition 1) : Vista
    Logical (Disc 0, partition 2): Data
    Primary (Disc 1, partition 1): Win 2K

    So, can I dual boot, without having to re-install either of my O/S's?

    Thanks

    Installed Vistabootpro, and manually added Windows 2000, and now I can boot into booth. So problem solved
