Re: Fedora Core 5 + WinXP Pro





2006/4/16, Adam Tunbridge <iamadam bulldoghome com>:
I get the feeling dual-boot systems are a /dirty /subject round here but
needs must I'm afraid. Right, I'm having issues loading Fedora Core 5. I
have 2 hard-drives:

80GB  (we'll call this /D1/)
100GB (we'll call this /D2/)

I started by installing WinXP on /D1/. Then I installed Fedora on /D2,
/using GRUB on the MBR of /D1/. This didn't work.  My system just booted
straight into XP. Then I tried the same but installed GRUB on the first
sector of /D2/. Same result. Now I've just tried the same install but
*without *installing GRUB and tried Acronis OS Selector instead. This
wouldn't event detect the existence of Fedora. I'm a complete noob when
it comes to Linux (Well, partial noob really. Read a few books) so
please explain what I'm doing wrong in moderately simple terms.


 hello,

try this to solve your problems with grub:

cco la soluzione a questo problema!

boot in rescue mode with dvd/cd for install:

linux rescue

on the shell:


chroot /mnt/sysimage

after

if you have similar situation:

#  fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hde: 60.0 GB, 60022480896 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7297 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

# cat /boot/grub/device.map

(hd0) /dev/hde

# cat /etc/mtab

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 rw,defaults 0 0
/dev/hdf1 /boot ext3 rw,defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc rw,defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw,defaults 0 0
/dev/sysfs /sys sysfs rw,defaults 0 0


edit

       /boot/grub/device.map

and add:

          (hd1) /dev/hdf

now reinstall grub:

# grub-install /dev/hde
