W95 on secondary disk.
Posted on 1997-04-05
I have DOS, Linux and W95 spread across 2 IDE drives. DOS and Linux on primary and W95 on secondary. Linux s complete with boot manager called LILO that allows booting OS's on non-primary drive. W95 fails to boot under this scheme. Boot results in Explorer failing with General Protection Faults in GDI.exe among other failures. If I physically disconnect the primary drive, leaving only W95 drive, W95 boot is OK.
Is this a general problem with W95 on non-primary drive?
Is it a problem with Linux/LILO?
