There is something wrong with my boot sector portion of my disk. I was trying to add another OS to my computer. I used BootMagic 7.0 to try to make a dual boot system with Win 98 and Win 2000(using NTFS) with each OS on a separate HD.
I put BootMagic on the win98 disk since Bootmagic doesn't work on NTFS, so I made that disk the primary drive and changed the Win2000 disk (originally my primary drive with all of my data) to a secondary drive.
WHen I set it up BootMagic recognized win2000. But when I rebooted for the first time I couldn't boot the win2000 disk. After reading the instructions more carefully, I now know that you can't boot Win2000 off a secondary disk
I took out the windows 98 HD and put the the win2000 HD as the primary disk but now my computer won't recognize the drive. I believe the I messed up the boot sector of my harddrive and it won't boot anymore.
I replaced the Win98 OS on the other HD to Win2000 so my computer is running but I want to get at my data files on my other Win2000 HDD. I put the disk with the working OS on master and the other disk with the bad boot sector on slave. Windows 2000 device manager in the control panel sees the slave drive but the I can't see the drive in the "my computer" window.
1. Is there anyway to make the disk bootable without formating the harddive and losing my data?
2. If I can't make it bootable, how can I access the disk when Windows hardware manager recognizes the drive but Windows doesn't.
Thanks in advance.
