Hello all,
I have Win 98 and Win XP pro on my machine and it's
working fine,today I installed Win 2000 on the machine to
have 3 OS at the same time. but when i try to enter to
Win XP I face a screen that tells me there is missing
files, is it known issue?
P.S: I can log to Win 98,2000 smoothly.

Yes, the Windows 2000 setup replaced some XP boot files. To repair this
boot the PC with your XP CD. When prompted, choose the option (R) to
repair an installation using the Recovery Console. Once in the Recovery
Console, type in the command fixboot. This will start the repair of the
XP boot files. You also need to copy ntldr and ntdetect.com from the I386
folder on your XP CD to the root of your boot drive (generally your C
drive). Once that is done, exit the Recovery Console and reboot.

You should have installed the operating systems in the sequence 98/2000/XP.
