Hello, first post here. I would like to thank everyone for creating this utility. However, I've run in to a problem and I'm not sure how to resolve this. Any help would be appreciated.

I dual boot XP and Vista. XP is on the first physical hard drive and Vista is on a second physical hard drive. I have an extended partition on HD 2, with another partition for data. When I choose to boot Windows XP, I recieve this message:
Code:
error 12: unrecognized device string
Here is my configuration file (menu.lst):
Code:
default 0
timeout 0
title Boot XP - Hide Vista
hide hd1,0
chainloader (hd0,0)/ntldr
boot
Very simple.

Here is the debug info.
Code:

Hello Computer Guru, thank you for the welcome.
I know why I never became a programmer, those sytanx errors got me everytime! LOL
Anyway, perfect! Thanks for the very quick response and appreciate the huge amount of work put in to the program.
