Drive formatted 3 ways-Win XP Pro on 1,formatted 2, want Fedora 5 on 3-How?
Posted on 2006-07-02
I have just installed Win. XP Pro on a 300 GB HDD in a 50 GB partition (to be able to maintain Windows files easily), have formatted in NTFS file system 211 GB for important Windows file storage on 2nd partition, and wanted to install Fedora Core 5 on the remaining unformatted space (hopefully about 20 GB). I purposly left this area on a third partition open for this, and placed a Fedora core 5 disk into DVDrom at startup. I came up with the fedora core 5 grub screen, which has the GNU GRUB version 0.97 at the top. I have the grub cursor flashing at me, but know nothing about commands in GRUB. I took out the Fedora DVD to reboot Windows but when I turn on computer again, it just goes back to the GRUB command screen. I would like to be able to boot this computer to Windows initially, and be able to switch to Linux if preferred. Now I keep booting the Grub screen, and can no longer boot windows. HELP! Thanks for your comments in advance-I am under a time limit to get this done-Thanks!
