fedora core 5 and windows xp (two SATA drives) , grub won't boot winXP
i'm having trouble with fedora core 5 on the computers we built in my lab. i want to dual boot winXP and fc5 off of two SATA drives. after many tries to even get fc5 to boot, i installed it with the following procedure:
1) removed SATA drive 1, where WinXP was/is installed, then set BIOS to boot off second drive
2) proceeded with fedora installation
3) edited grub with:
title Windows XP
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
4) saved, shut down, and re-plugged the XP drive
5) got to grub, clicked on winXP and got a blank black screen and a sustained beep
i have tried to edit grub.conf a thousand times, switching map around, etc. the one thing that seems to get somewhere other than the beep/black is taking away the chainloader command, but that just goes to an error screen.. i think error 11 (sorry, i'm writing this at home). i have searched and searched for what i can do, and find i must post now before FC5 and grub take away further from my research, hehe.
i can boot windows if i change BIOS settings to boot from HD3 as opposed to HD4 (FC5)
one other thing... neither drive is master or slave, for reasons unbeknownst to me.
okay, thanks. sorry about my vagueness. i'll specify tomorrow.
