Re: Unable to boot on WinXP after Fedora Core 2 test3 install

if /dev/hda1 is your XP then it looks like grub over-wrote the boot code for the XP partition, since that is where it's booting from and grub is in the boot partition.


afair hd0,0 = hda1 hd0,1 = hda2

afair
winxp has problems with pqmagic5 created partitions,
i could not find the article
http://search.microsoft.com/search/results.aspx?view=en-us&st=b&na=82&qu=partition+magic

could it be that since fc2tx something has changed the partition in a simliar way?


what had you tried? http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2004-April/msg00138.html

bios-setting from auto to lba ?
boot win-xp-cd in rescue-mode ?
c:\> fixmbr
