    Am trying to set up my computer to dual boot Window NT and ME.
    I added a new hard drive and moved myold drive with ME on it
    to be hard drive D. Partitiioned the new drive to be drive C and
    the computer boots OK from it.
    However, when I select ME from the dual boot menu on NT,
    it tells me that it can't find the Windows files to load.
    So, what I need to know is...how do I get the ME system to
    start up. I know that the registry and everything else on the
    old C drive (now drive D) is probably still saying drive C.
    I have no way of re-installing ME since the computer didn't
    come with an install CD I can use - everything was on the
    hard drive with a recovery CD.
    When I change the CMOS to make the ME drive drive C, it runs fine,
    I just can't get it to start from the dual boot prompt.
    Should I try to get it to happen or just live with changing the CMOS?
    Thanks for the help.
