1. Add W98 boot partition to BootMananger (LVM): Not?

Hi,

My MCP system is running fine but there are some heavy problems with DVD playback. I now wanted to check if my DVDrom drive causes the same troubles under windoze too...
So I found a 2GB free spot on my hard disk to be suitable to run a win98 se.
I used windoze's fdisk to create a primary dos partition, made it the active on and went for windoze - everyhting was okay. Windoze booting and so on...
Now I decided to make the DOS "active partition" again be the boot manager. This worked as expected. The boot manager came up and I ran MCP, startet LVM and then tried to add the w98 partition to the boot manager...: GRIPES!
First I told it to create a "boot volume" (not an LVM/compat.) and this is where it won't work. The target partition is recognized as FAT32 primary... any idea WHAT to do to get the d**n w98 partition be part of boot manager?
(Do I need FAT32.IFS to make it work??)

Thanks all!
Thomas

Hi,

in reply to my onw posting: Done!
I simply got rid of OS/2 Bootmanager and am now proudly using Martin Kiewitz' AiRBoot - great! Saves me 7 Megs as well.

Abnd you're able to have an extra primary partition as well. So Air boot is the bootmanager to be used. It rocks!
