  1. I am seriously hoping that someone here can help me or point me in the right direction. I am trying to dual boot Fedora Core 5 and Windows XP. I had no problems with installation but on reboot I keep getting Grub Loading Stage1.5. Loading, Please wait... Error 17. Then it just hangs. Here is my hardware setup: I have Windows XP installed on HDA with a NTFS filesystem. HDA is a 30GB HD. HDB is a 120GB HD with 3 partitions. hdb1 is a NTFS partition. Fedora setup hdb2 as Linux and hdb3 as Linux LVM. I edited grub.conf and changed root from root (hd1,1) to root (hd1,2) but that did not change anything. I then proceeded to change root in grub.conf to a number of different values but all met with the same fate. Here are all the other values of root that I tried in grub.conf... (hd1,0) , (hd1,1), (hd1,2), (hd1,3). I tried grub-install /dev/hda but get a error saying "/dev/hdb2 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive." I don't know what else to try. I can't boot anything, so I am seriously hoping that someone will be able to help me. Thanks in advance for all your trouble.
