I have done the "Real Install to Hardrive" of BackTrack2 but after installation I cant' boot onto BT, it just boots into WinXP as usual. Thats when the partition with WinXP was set to active and when the partition with BT is set to active i'm getting this error and the boot process gets stuck.
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-061: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM
Is setting the partition with BT as active necessary??
Also I tried editting the lilo.conf file using the live cd as:
boot = /dev/hda
timeout = 4000
vga = 773
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda2
initrd = /boot/splash.initrd
label = BackTrack2
other = dev/hda1
label = Windows XP
table = /dev/hda
default = Windows XP
After that I used the command:
chroot /mnt/hda2/ /bin/bash
and then tried entering lilo into the console but I'm getting the error:
Where did you install LILO?
MBR may be ?
the lilo.conf is ok, I think.
When you modified the lilo.conf,you must make the change in MBR(if that is where it is install) with the command lilo ( as root).
