dual booting fedora

Recommended Posts

Which OS did you install last? If you installed XP last, the XP bootloader wrote over grub (linux boot loader). If this is the case, you will have to reinstall grub and configure it to boot linux and XP.




i had xp installed first

gurb might not have installed right the first time try this,

boot from the CD and type at the boot: linux rescue

then after it boots type

# chroot /mnt/sysimage

# cd /boot/grub

then # grep '#boot' grub.conf

then it will say where GRUB bootloader was previously installed, if installed#boot=/dev/***

use this command to install GRUB # grub-install /dev/***

then reboot with the command

# sync;sync;exit;exit

# reboot


"*** is your hard disk"

I hope this will help you.

If not sorry.
