Default Re: Loading Issue

This is exactly what I have

[boot loader]
timeout=1
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Bad One" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
C:\="Unidentified operating system on drive H."

What part do I delete?

Right, just copy and paste this :

[boot loader]
timeout=1
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

NOTE:

Make sure you take off the space between the S and Window above. It seems to do it on this forum for some reason... It might just copy and paste fine, but just check that. So basically all I've done is taken off the entire line, plus the bit at the end.

As for the timeout function where you have 1.
When you set up your new computer, you can set this to -1 if you like. Basically it'll stop when it reaches the loader, and won't automatically select one until you select it by pressing Enter.
Or otherwise, set it to 30, which should give you plenty of time.

I hope this helps

For one reason or the other though, It seems as though I can not install an OS on the second HDD without corrupting the first (by that I mean getting the same problem I started off with). What can I do to stop this??

Thanks.
