 Windows 2000, 2 hard drives, booting
Author: Dagur

Hi!

I'm sorry if you get this question a lot. I tried searching but it's not easy finding exactly what I'm looking for.

Here's the situation:

I have 2 hard drives, on the main hard drive i have windows 2000 and I installed freeBSD on the other. When I was asked about the boot manager I didn't want to risk installing it because I don't want to mess up my windows 2000 installation.

So what are my options? I'd prefer being able to boot both from the windows 2000 installation. If that's not possible, how do I create a boot disk for freeBSD (because at the moment I can't use it).

Thanks!!

Just use the Freebsd BootManager.

All you have to do is set both drives to bootable and select the boot manager you want to use other than none...

it is not desirable nor easy to use the windows boot manager.
