Can you still boot Windows?

During the installation, the "bootloader" was written to one of your disks or partitions. Did you specify anything special for the bootloader?
You seem to have a mixed system with IDE and SCSI disks. What's on the IDE disk?

For this to work, you need to install the bootloader in the master boot record of your primary disk. I assume that you are booting from the IDE disk, is this correct?

khkremer,

I reinstall Fedora and select boot loader on the SCSI drive.
I think the default option install the loader on my IDE drive.
My IDE drive only for DATA.

Thanks.

Which drive are you booting from?
Is your system working now, or did you accept my comment only by accident as answer? You should not accept an answer until you are satisfied. Also, you should review the grading guidelines (just click on the "Question and Answer tips" link right above the comment box.
