Hello
I have just got my box back from the shope, after they installed linux and Lilo, now I reinstalled linux totally with a different file system. and got it to work, now I need to dual boot, trying to set up grub, but first I noticed that I cann't get into my windows hard drive "first disk" the second has linux.
when I boot it gives 01 01 01 01 "millions of times" untill I Ctrl Alt Del.
I used my windows 2000 cd to repair for no avil, I tried a floppy created by another w2k box I have, it said NTLDR is missing.
