The only autoexec file that should run is Autoexec.bat. What makes you
think that some other autoexec. is running?

I don't believe the autoexec.bat file is read during a safe mode boot.

1. During bootup, the system reads the first AUTOEXEC
file encountered in the filepath. This is usually
c:\windows\autoexec.bat

2. Standard Win98 requires no AUTOEXEC file.
Try booting without it and without CONFIG.SYS
(rename both) and see if that solves your problem.

During a _normal_ boot, I accidentally discovered that a different autoexec
file( a backup autoexec I think) was being read.

More detail on how you discovered this would be helpful, what you saw,
etc.

A list of all "autoexec" files on your machine would also help.

You need to supply a lot more detailed information regarding exactly what "autoexec"
files you have and which is being read. Additionally, all files have a file
extension...text files use .txt, Word documents use .doc, and so forth. A batch
file uses the .bat extension. Click Start> Settings> Folder Options> View tab, set
the Hidden Files setting to "Show All Files", and uncheck the box for "Hide file
extensions for known files types", then click OK. This will allow you to see, and
report back, with what file extensions these "autoexec" files have.

Please repost with more information, including why you think a
different file is being processed.

During bootup, the autoexec.tsh file is read, not the Autoexec.bat.

Autoexec.bat is renamed to Autoexec.tsh by Windows when you uncheck
Autoexec.bat in "START, Run, MSConfig, General tab". In that case, there
is no Autoexec.bat to run at boot-- & neither will Autoexec.tsh be run.
That was the purpose of renaming it.

When it is checked again, the .tsh will become a .bat again after a
reboot. I think, though, every individual line inside Autoexec.bat that
may have been unchecked in Autoexec.bat will be checked now. So, watch
that!

Correction: When you uncheck Autoexec.bat in MSCONFIG, Autoexec.bat is
renamed to Autoexec.tsh, but a *new* Autoexec.bat is created containing
nothing but comments that explain about Autoexec.tsh being the backup. There
*is* an Autoexec.bat, but it's toothless.

Autoexec.tsh is a backup file created by msconfig when the
autoexec.bat file is disabled. If you use msconfig to modify
autoexec.bat, I suggest you leave this file in place. If not,
it can be renamed or deleted.

Thanks. Yes, perhaps I did see that once for one of the files. Yes, it's
a reminder of what one has done. I will remember this on the day I make

I think he's trying to multiboot with BIOS settings, but I know little
of it. He's sees the right partition try to boot but ends up in the
wrong one. Better clear out of this thread & all of the others! Run!

I said that the correct drive(physical drive 3) runs then physical drive 1
runs.

What would cause the drive I selected to boot(physical drive 3) to run then
physical drive 1 to run which results in a messed-up bootup?

Physical drive 3 may not be bootable. I suggest you remove it and replace
it with a known good bootable drive and see if the computer boots from it.

It could be certain important system files are kept on drive 1 & must
run although you boot drive 3, but I'm sorry I really have no experience
with multi-booting. Good luck with it, b11_.
