Re: Problem dual booting XP and Fedora 4.

OK, I tried the following:
1. boot into "linux rescue".
2. modify grub.conf to boot XP from (hd1, 1)
3. grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
grub was installed on the correct MBR (hard drive 1 with XP). After
rebooting, I got the options to boot either XP or Fedora. But neither
When booting Fedora, I got the following error:
Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7.
Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition.
When booting XP, I got the following:
rootnoverify (hd1, 1)
Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format.
Originally it only contains the first two mappings. The 3rd was added
after I did a grub-install.
fdisk -l of /dev/hdc and /dev/sda shows basically what I listed in my
original e-mail with
/dev/hdc2 being the root (/) mount of Fedora and /dev/sda2 the C: drive
where XP was installed. Both of these two rows of the fdisk output
showed a '*' at the boot column.
grub.conf is as follows:
title Fedora Core
title Windows XP
I've had three sleepless nights and rebooted the machine at least 50
times. There must be something that I missed. I'd appreciate it if
someone could steer me to the right direction...
