I'm trying to set up a dual boot with only win 2000. I
have two harddisks, master and slave, on the C drive two
partitions, on the first partition win 2000 is installed,
and four partitions on the D drive. I am trying to install
a second OS on the first partition of the D drive, but
untill now, without succes. All my partitions are FAT 32
formatted. I started the installation using win 2000 and
after restarting got the choice of on which partition I
would like to install it. Than it installs win 2000 and
reboots. I finally get a windows screen with Setup and
that I have to wait and finally nothing happens.
How to solve this?
Does the amount of GB on the partition I want to install
the second Win 2000 on matter?

What is the second OS.

There are sometimes limitations on the OS of where the
bootsector should reside and I do not have very good
experience with fat32. fat32 is very fragile and I find it
difficult to get working on other systems, although the
HDD management bigger that 2GB is an advantage.

I found that using a tds fat for the first partition on
the primary disk normally work better. All the OS's would
normally look on the first poartition for boot ionfo and
the boot from a diffirent drive.
