System boot failure after installation of fedora fc11 in dual boot with windows xp
 
Hello!

I installed Fedora FC11 on my computer in dual boot mode with Windows XP. During installation I selected "install boot loader on to First sector of boot partition" instead of MBR. However, after installation neither windows nor linux boots up. What is solution?

Thanks

Looks like your boot record got overwritten by the installation. Boot the machine using a bootable XP CD and install windows first. This will install XP boot loader and u will be bale to login to windows. Once this is fixd, try to install fc11 using default options.
