A serious problem:no linux loader load in the hdd
Posted on 2004-04-19
I have installed redhat Linux9 on my standlone PC.
During installation when it asks for BOOT Loader i select lilo loader and have to install on the boot sector of the hdd instead of MBR and select hda8 instead of hda1(booting disk). After completetion of Installation when i reboot my system i see there is no boot loader of Linux it directly start windows98. I start linux through bootable floppy of linux instead of direct booting from hdd. How can i solve this problem and install boot loader on the boot sector of the hdd. and second problem is that i mount my windows partitions in linux through mount command. but it can't permanent mount when i restart my system(linux) i need to again mount the parttions agains, can it is possible to mount the partition permantely. Waiting for reply.
