Ok try "man fdisk" and it shoud show the fdisk -l option and say what it does.....hmm odd.
There must be something else in your grub.conf. Like your Fedora partition? If fdisk -l doesn't work, and we can't view your partition table, then (and I'm no Linux pro at all) we might as well try to guess!
Sorry but I'm not really sure! lol. Good luck....can someone else give him some tips?
Ok, I have stumbled upon the Hardware browser, noo need for fdisk. Here's the make-up:
Device Start End Size (MB) Type Use on my comp
hda1 1 735 5426 fat32 RECOVERY (D:/
hda2 736 10336 70882 ntfs WINDOWS (c:/
10337 10337 7 free space
/dev/hdb Linux, regular make-up, no need to explain, I don't think.
I hope that's what you're looking for and that I can get into windows on this computer.
Ok, that's good, so add this to your /boot/grub/grub.conf:
Please try this out by rebooting your comp, and if it doesn't work, then go here, copy and paste it into the "reply" box and alter it so that it looks exactly like yours. Then post it and I'll see what I can do. Best of luck,
