      Re: strange question

      That's one of those stupid trick questions. I think a dual OS machine with XP needs to have OS on a seperate partition. Especially if those mirrored partitions are OS mirrored. Stick XP on the D: drive and the WIN2K boot manager can deal with the rest.

      The other thing that might get messed up is the \program files directory. If the OS's are on different partitions, then this will be clearly defined for each OS

        Re: strange question

        You will also get a question during installation if you want to dual boot. In my experience you can't "upgrade" Win2k server to Win XP. Upgrade server to Desktop OS??

        My answer would bee to put Win XP on a other partition/drive. In this case answer C.

          I think the answer is d because they say that the installation completed successfully.

            Re: strange question

            this IS a stupid trick question...
            it has no sense.
            look what they think the answer shoul be...
            (i also think that a seperate partition is needed. how can both OS be on a single partition?)

              Re: strange question

              To make it even more stupid, remember that in order to use Mirroring you must use Dynamic Disks. And when using Dynamic Disks you will NOT be able to dual boot your system, not to mention repairing it.

              Furthermore, to make things even worse, W2K Pro and WinXP Pro do NOT support software mirroring.

              So indeed DUH...

                    I would choose Option E. Format c: /q Problem solved, no more conflict.
                    1 1 was a racehorse.
                    2 2 was 1 2.
                    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

                        It could be a hardware mirror.

                          Re: strange question

                          Yes but then the OS won't show like it's having multiple disks, only one for each hardware raid1 pair.
