BootPart is an easy tool for adding one partition in the Windows NT multi boot menu (by samples, OS/2 boot manager or Linux partition).

Bootpart 2.20 is compatible with Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

BOOTPART lets you add partitions in the Windows NT/2K/XP Multiboot menu. Usually, you only have an MSDOS or Windows 95 entry and one (or several) entries on the Windows NT multiboot.

With BOOTPART, you can add any partition on the menu. You can add OS/2 Multiboot, or Linux Partition (with Lilo) in the menu.

The only thing I highly suggest : your active partition on your first hard disk must be a FAT16 primary partition. This can be a small partition.

It seems it's actually impossible add an HPFS partition with OS/2 boot. If you find a workaround, please let me know.

BOOTPART creates a 512 bytes file which contains an image of a boot sector that loads the boot sector of the partition. After, this file is declared in C:\BOOT.INI (a text file used by Windows NT boot menu). The boot sector comes from FDFormat and WinImage.
