Windows 7: Win 7 and Win2K Dual hdd, dual operating system

22 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Win 7 and Win2K Dual hdd, dual operating system

I'm running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit.
I have another hard drive with win2k, that I use to use for a gaming only drive, and for some old apps.

A couple of times I got into Win2K using the boot manager of my motherboard, F9 or F12 depending.

The last time it told me Win2K was corrupt and wouldn't load.

Did Windows 7 kill my Win2K operating system?

My motherboard is a Biostar A770E3. I would expect booting from BIOS would bypass Windows 7 entirely?

Thanks in advance.
