Very urgent !! RedHat7.0 and WinNT4
Posted on 2001-06-14
I'm getting a terrible problem, let me explain the situation. I have a hard disk with this configuration :
NTFS - WiNT4(
What I did is I installed RH7.0 on FAT area, actually I deleted FAT and created a linux native partition, the installation was successfula( I didn't install LILO, I boot linux by floppy disk ) and then I can run both linux and winnt. I want to add some more components of linux so I did install few times.
But yesterday after installing linux as I did usually, I want to run WinNT then I remove foppy disk and reboot but there's something wrong, the screen displayed "LI" and my PC hung at there, that's all it says. I remember I did not install LILO, how come it display "LI".
After all I have tried few solution in sequence :
1. Boot my PC by WinNT installation CDROM disk, choose REPAIR option, but it still display "LI" after reboot, OK I tried the second method
2. Install a fresh winnt on NTFS partition, but it still display "LI" after reboot, OK I tried the third method
3. Install a fresh WinNT on linux partition( first I delete linux partition and create a FAT when installing winnt), It's no point, the same problem when reboot. OK tried the last one
4. Re-installed linux but choose to install LILO, after reboot and can run linux but if I chose WinNT then it display "Loading DOS" and hung at there.
What can I say after trying? I have a lot importance data on NTFS, I want to get it back with winnt. Please putting any solutions that you think it will work
Thanks a lot
