|Have two hard drives. Each has a copy of xp on them.|
One for the grand kids and one for myself.
I have changed the boot.ini to give a choice
Works great but.....
The computer runs 24/7 so I am wondering if I can make a batch file with icon the kids can click on and the computer will reboot to the second hard drive.
To date: On my test computer the bat renames the boot.ini to .bac and replaces it with
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional in Hard Drive 2" /fastdetect
shutdown [-i | -l | -s | -r | -a] [-f] [-m \\computername] [-t xx] [-c "comment"] [-d up:xx:yy]
Rather than do the renaming I wonder if there is some way to have the boot.ini in the batch file.
