Fedora Core 3 install screwed up my Windows XP install
I tried installing Fedora Core 3 but had problems when the anaconda installer started up. The screen turned into a kaleidoscope with multi coloured vertical lines and it froze on me.
I read up on a few other forums and sites and tried a switch at the prompt. I managed to install it fine, but it wouldn't load up at all. Instead of a login screen, it froze again with the multi coloured bars.
I thought I'd try and fix my MBR through the Windows XP CD and then:O
sort out my partitions, but when I put the XP CD in the drive, it gets to "setup is examining your computer" or whatever and the screen goes black and nothing happens. I still have XP and Fedora on here, but I can't use the XP CD anymore so if XP screws up, I can't reinstall..
It was all fine with other distros. I could fix the MBR by using my XP disc, but now it doesn't work at all.
I've just gone back to Fedora 2 and that's working fine. My XP CD is still unusable though
Anyone else had this problem and if so, how did you fix it?
