    hello,
    i have installed DOS on extended partition ("format d:" and "sys a: d:"). I have installed GAG on primary partition and setup for boot from extended partition. i can boot from another primary partition but i can not boot from extended partition. i have setup w2000 (copy image from primary partition and change boot.ini)  on extended partition but can't boot.
    If anyone can help I should be very grateful.

      I assume your boot.ini change was for the partition number. See thread "Tip: Avoiding Unbootable Partitions", don't know how the extended partitions are counted by XP. Hope that thread helps, you might have to try several partition numbers before discovering how the extended partitions are counted.
