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
