I had a pc with Xp installed and I install Debian on it and everything
was good because Linux installed Grub Legacy.
I was able to boot on Grub and choice between Linux and Windows.
But now when a boot my pc I have a black screen asking me to press a key
when boot device is choice
I had in sda7 my linux root
and in sda1 the windows XP
So the only way that I can boot is on Windows by set the boot flag on sda1 with Gparted.
How can I resolve this multiboot problem is my menu.lst grub configuration faulty
I attached the menu.lst of grub and information about my present system on this pc.
When I had this problem the config of menu.lts of grub was like this:
I changed to :
Because my Linux is on sda7 but it still fails to boot.
I retrieve some info about my system with a repair-boot-cd (see attachment)
I'm afraid to loose my linux partition, so I had already save my 512 bytes MBR
but is it enough to restore a lost partition ?
How it will be possible to get back multiboot, is this with the menu.lst of grub ?
what is for chainloader +1 ?
