I'm a new linux user.. Just wondering how to set up my linux HD to boot alongside a Win XP x64 drive. I'm using 3 SATA drives. Primary for XP x64, Secondary with FC5, Tertiary for storage--currently NTFS, running on an Asus P5WD2.
Currently XP x64 is sda1, and boots by default (first the Fedora boot loader comes up, and boots into Windows).
If I choose to boot into the hard drive containing FC5 (sdb1), I get this error
"Error Loading Operating System"
That's it. I assume I may have set up the Linux drive wrong. I had /boot being the primary partition (20gb) and /root being 20+gb, and a 15gb swap file.
Thanks for any advice, definitely looking forward to getting this up and running!
EDIT: Disregard post!
I have realized that the simplest solution is the best one. I had been trying to manually boot into that drive using BIOS when all I had to do was use the bootloader...!! Sorry for the trouble! I had assumed it was just a bad installation, since my last one with SUSE 10.1 did not go well.
