WinXP dual boot
Posted on 2002-03-06
I used to dual boot successfully (through GRUB) between RH7.2 and Windows ME. I recently blasted away the ME partition (VFAT) and installed WinXP Pro there instead (NTFS). I kept the linux partition intact (I think) and so right now it is hiding on my hard drive, as WinXP automagically overwrites the MBR and I get no GRUB menu. Anyway, my question is simply this: how do I/can I reinitialize GRUB and get back to my old style of dual booting? Can GRUB boot an XP partition? After using a bootdisk to get into linux (I assume), what should the GRUB configuration look like to sucessfully boot WinXP?
