Dual system boot err: rootnoverify(hd1,0),but the hd0 err msg existed befor shut down


When I booted the windows, the system said:
Booting 'Windows XP'
rootnoverify(hd1,0)
chainloader +1

I searched by google and found some articles about this kind of dual systems booting problems. But their methods are not fit for my case.

In my case, the hard disk err has occured before the dual booting problem.
my /etc/grub.conf is:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,5)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda7
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=1
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,5)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

-----------------------------------------------
My /boot/grub/menu.lst shows the same.
My /dev/hda partition table shows:
Disk hda: 81.9 GB, 81964302336 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9964 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

hda5 8690 9963 10233373+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
hda6 7415 7427 104359+ 83 Linux
hda7 7428 8561 9108823+ 83 Linux
hda8 8562 8688 1020096 82 Linux swap


I have tried to change to
title Windows XP Professional
rootnoverify (hd0,1)
chainloader +1
But the system said
Booting 'Windows XP'
rootnoverify(hd1,0)
chainloader +1

In the googled pages, they change to
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
chainloader +1
But they have 2 hard disks.I have only one and so needn't map them.

When I tried to use the windows install CD to repair it, I booted from CD, but the
windows installation program couldn't recognize the hard disk. The screen turned black and had no response any more although the CPU was still running.

My computer is not old, bought for only one year. When I got it, it was all in latest hardwares: P4 3.x and so on. It always run well. I never shut down it.

I am not sure if my windows files have corrupted or not. I wish to rescue the windows,since there are many good files in that system.
PS: I advise not to use Flashget any more. It has ads pop out every hour. And the most important, it is not seriously developed, unsafe.

Thank you for your care. But I formated the hardisk at last. One of my friends suspected that maybe my harddisk has broken. But after the format, I was able to install a new windows.
