  • Can not install Win 2008 parallel Win 2003

    I have Windows 2003 in driver C. I want to install Windows 2008 32 bit in driver E - 40GB (difference partition but the same physical hard driver with driver C). But when I finish installing Win 2008, the screen shows error "Windows could not update the computer's boot
    configuration. Installation cannot proceed.", I press OK then server restarts but after restarting there is no Windows 2008, it backs to Win 2003

    Please help me.
    Thanks

    I know it is for XP and Vista but the server OSes are the exact equivalent

        In theory, yes as long as it is 2003 first

            Assuming you can access the 2008 partition after install, anything in the setup log?

            Is a virtual solution (under VPC or VServer) an option?

              I'm not very clear with this article.
              So can't I install Windows in driver difference than "C" ?
