trying to run win 2k & xp on separate hdds.
win 2k simply will not detect internal intel 536 modem, thinks it is an external 1 on com 1 or 2 and nothing will change its mind.

on xp modem did work after a fight now ignores it. the wizard shows the relevant setup screen with dial up greyed out, could be xp permission thing? as cannot install anything else. even tried a system reset it went through all the motions but said cant do it.

Where are you getting the modem drivers from? Manufacturer CD or online?

If the dialup option is greyed out in the connection wizard do the following to restore it.

Open Regedit (Start --> Run --> regedit --> ok)
Navigate to HKey_Local_Machine --> System --> CurrentControlSet --> Services --> Rasman --> PPP --> EAP
Left click on EAP there should be 4 keys > 13,4,25,and 26
Delete the keys 25 and 26
Reboot the PC
Try to setup a new connection, dialup option should now be available.
