Re: [linux-lvm] won't dual boot: 2 disks and LVM

Whilst I cannot find any definite reference stating "MS WinXP cannot

Anybody got any such definitive references or other help?

Thanks, Michael

If you do this, you will destroy the mbr on the first disc making Fedora unbootable. You will then have to re-install grub and make sure your menu has an entry for winxp. As far as winxp hanging on install, I am not surprised as it doesn't understand/know of lvm or Linux at all. It's likely trying to analyze the disc and gets stuck. You may have less work in the long run if you do unplug it!

i've not had problems with Linux dual booting it's the LVM itself that seems a problem for WinXP installation.
I'm really hoping it is possible to dual boot Linux/LVM and WinXP!!!
