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

Ok .. here is my setup:

2 120GB Harddrives on a Promise Controller as HDE and HDG

I have Fedora on HDE and WinXP on HDG

If I do not hide the partitions under HDE I couldn't boot to WinXP (Don't know why)

The partition that I have on HDG is NTFS, after I did that change it's working beautifully ...

I don't have any extended partitions on any hard drive all partitions are primary I have two partitions on HDE
and one partition on HDG.

/ - ext3 - primary
swap - primary
ntfs - primary

Let me know if you need anything else :)

I have an installation with Windows XP and Fedora Core 2 Test 3 and my Windows option inside grub looks like:

rootnoverify (hd1,0)
unhide (hd1,0)
hide (hd0,0)
hide (hd0,1)
chainloader 1+

what would happen if you unhide (hd0,0) (hd0,1)
can you boot into xp ?

do you have an extented partition on hda or 2 primaries ?
do you have only 1 primary on hdb for xp ?
