Hi,

Does anyone know how to find out the names/numbers/locations of partitions
and physical drives and the interface that they use. For example the ones
used in boot.ini for microssofts boot loader.

E.G. multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP

Cheers Jon

doesn't disk management have the info?
diskmgmt.msc from the RUN box.

you might get a better answer if you elaborate on your original

It was written concerning WinNT but generally applies to Win2K/XP too.
