Dual boot RedHat/WinXp /w XP on EXT Dos partition
Posted on 2003-02-23
Here is how my machine was set up before I screwed with it:
Primary Dos, 9gigs, windows ME here.
Extended Dos, 9gigs, windows XP here.
30gigs of files
I don't ever use winME anymore, so i removed the primary dos partition on drive1, and used that space for linux.
So now i've got several linux paritions (/ and /swap, etc) and an EXT DOS parition on drive 1.
The problem is, I can't get winXP to boot using grub using the default Boot option it provided for the windows partition
The boot process just stops as soon as those commands are issued.
I can't go back to my old MBR, fdisk /mbr (from my dos boot disk) just overwrote grub and gives an error "Invalid parition table".
I'm completly lost here, hopefully someone can nudge me in the right direction when i wake up tomorrow.
