I realize that this is a linux form so i am sorry for this post. I chose this site because it has fast results and i couldn't think of a better one for this problem. This is both a windows problem and a linux/ Grub boot questio, and i was wondering if anyone was able to help.
I use both windows and linux. I hade a 120 GB Maxtor hard drive with the following partitions:
hda1: win xp
hda2: grub\gentoo boot
hda4: extended partition
hda5: gentoo linux stage 3
hda7: suse linux
hda8: gentoo stage 1
hda9: win 2000
i installed the Operating Systems in the same oarder listed above.
1st question: if i have a grub boot loader then why do i see a boot menu for windows allowing me to choose eather 2000 and xp no matter witch one i choose in the grub boot menu. shouldn't the grub boot menu pass that?
problem2: one day after cleaning out my computer and putting it back to geather my harddrive started to not work and click. I thought it was bad and decided to buy a Western Digital 80 GB. I installed win xp on that but still havn't had time to install linux. i dicided to try the old harddrive once again and it strangly started working again. so i decided to make the old one the master because it had the grub boot loader on it and make the newone with only xp on it the slave. and i added xp boot script to the grub config file.
the problem is that no matter witch windows os i choose i only get the choises in the win boot menu for the xp and 2000 on hd1 my primary hard drive and can not boot the win xp installiaton on hd2.
can anyone help me fix these 2 problems?
again i am sorry that these are more windows problems then linux.
thanks in advance,
