Hi there
I have a ThinkPad A20 and have W2000 as Operating system. I want to add a 2nd HDD in the Ultra Bay 2000 (usually the CD Rom sits there) with a Windows 2000 Operating system on it and want my ThinkPad to boot from this 2nd HDD. I have tried to adjust the boot.ini file with a second line (see below..."2nd HDD"...). Now I can select in the start up phase which HDD to use, but when I use the "2nd HDD" it doesn't work, saying to have a HD configuration problem, and that it can NOT boot.
Any help?

[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(2)\WINNT="2nd HDD" /fastdetect
