Win2000 & Linux (win2k shouldn't detect linux partition!!)
Posted on 2003-03-18
Since I am a software developer, I need to test software on several OS, so...
I have the following OS on a single drive:
d: WinXP pro
f: RedHat8 (the last one OS I installed)
g: not used
[c,d,e and g are fat32]
After I installed RedHat 8, WinXP Pro and Win98 are working ok, they are just ignoring the F: partition.
BUT Windows 2000 is loading the F: partition, this is a real problem since it takes a long time to load, and once Windows is loaded every time I open an application or an Open/Save dialog where the drives are displayed windows freezes for several seconds. (20-60 or more....)
I think that there has to be a way to remove the F:, and avoid Win2k o load it..... Do you know how?
Any idea why this happens?
Thanks a lot,
