    I am trying to install xp as a second OS to a functioning win2000 system.
    I have a promise 2000 ultra tx2 133 adapter card.
    When I start to install win xp I am asked about another controller and I enter the ultra 133 instillation soon stops I get the message "unmountable boot volume".
    W/O entering the Ultra controoler I get a more generalized message after stopping.
    Any help welcome

    One way to do this is to move the drive to the standard IDE channels, perform the upgrade, install the Promise drivers, then move it back. :)
