Hello,
   I recently created a dual booting system using RH 8.0 and W2k. I have two seperate harddrives: RH 8.0 on the primary master, and W2K on the secondary master. When I boot up redhat comes up and gives me the option of booting to Rh or windows. It will boot to redhat just fine, but when i try to boot to windows it just simply restarts my computer. If I unplug the primary master (linux) then windows will boot up just fine. Here is the contents of my device.map and grub.conf:

device.map
-------------------------------------
(fd0) /dev/fd0
(hd0) /dev/hda
(hd1) /dev/hdc
-------------------------------------


grub.conf:
-------------------------------------------------------------
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage = (hd0,0)/grub/splash.xmp.gz

title RedHat Linux 8.0 (2.4.18-14)
   root(hd0,0)
   kernal /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/hdb=ide -scsi
   initrd -2.4.18-14.img

title Windows 2000 Professional
  map(hd0)(hd1)
  map(hd1)(hd0)
  makeactive
  rootnoverify(hd1,0)
  chainloader +1
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Can anyone tell me what exactly i am doing wrong and present some code to fix this. If you need anymore information I will be more than happy to give it to you.

Thanks

I have a similar setup and it works fine.  The only thing I see that's different is that there are spaces between "map", "(hd0)", and "(hd1)" and likewise in the next line in the Windows boot stanza.

Hope this helps...

One other thing, the "makeactive" and "rootnoverify (hd1,0)" lines appear in the reversr e order, namely:

title     Windows
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1
