oh by the way, i just noticed in partition magic that my 250gb that has windows on it is set to "not active" would this be my problem. i checked the pqboot and only showed the 60gb harddrive. if i set the 250 to active that should make pqboot show up the 250 and let me choose the partition on that with the os and boot from it right?

Are your master and slave jumpers reversed (would that do it)? I'm guessing as I have not stumbled upon this one before...

i transfered the "boot.ini, ntdetect.com, ntldr" files that were on the 60gb thinking that would help but it didn't. im thnking that i still need to set the partition to active to make it boot. any ideas?

does this look right? taken from boot.ini. by the way my 60gb is disk 1 and my 250 is disk 2.
