Booting RH7.1 in multiboot environment
Posted on 2001-07-14
Im trying to multiboot win98, win2000 and linux red hat.
I have 2 HDs, one is partitioned in two partitions, with win98 on c: and win2k on d:. On the empty HD I've insalled RH7.1 (no probs installing). I made one swap partition and one /-partition which I installed LILO on (so it doesn't overwrite the mbr).
I then used Bootpart to add linux to the win2k loader, no problems there either. I get the boot menu, both windows partitions boot correctly, however when choosing linux in the menu it says:
LI (yep just the first 2 letters)
and it halts completely.
It works fine booting linux with the bootdisk, and in /etc/lilo.conf, LILO points to hda1 which is where / is located. I've run /sbin/lilo again but the problem remains.
Thnx in advance
