Dual Boot to Linspire & Mepis. Both are installed/working on 2 separate drives, but Boot to OS screen flashes by- NO CHOICE
Posted on 2006-10-24
I can't remember the keyboard key to hold a screen.
I think there is a key that will allow me to choice the OS to
boot to from my dual OS: Linspire on Primary C Drive &
Mepis 6 on the second Drive D.
The screen to choose flashes by, so Linspire boots.
Previous to this OS setup, I dual booted to either Windows ME
or Mepis 6 on 2 drives. There was no problem choising the OS to boot to.
Mepis was the screen to make that choice.
I exchanged that primary C drive (Win ME)
with a different drive to install Linspire.
1.Maybe the MBR is screwed up now?
2.Maybe I have to re-install Mepis to get it to allow a dual boot choice?
3. Maybe it's just a matter of slowing that boot screen with a keyboard hit?
4. I will just save that Win ME drive & use the 2 Linux drives, so your comments should
address those 2 drives. Also note4, the BIOS is skimpy/few options, so there is no setting
for slow/fast boot, no setting for a logo screen, etc. It's a Dell Optiplex GX110, used for testing
OS purposes (gads my personal PC is a "super PC" & it's a M/S OS), as this is almost 2007.
