I just installed a fresh install of Windows XP followed by a fresh install of a Fedora Core 2 install. I am using grub as bootloader, but i can't boot Windows. I get the print of the options for Windows XP from my grub.conf when i try.
title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title Windows XP
Okay, i just tried running an automated repair from the Windows XP-disk. Now, when i select Windows in grub, i just get a black screen for about a setting, then grub reappears and starts counting down again.

2) your fdsisk suggests /dev/hdC and I am thinking you may have another drive you forgot to mention on the first controller.
can you be explicit and say what drives, optical drives are on what controllers.
it can make a difference if you have more than one drive to the count.
I think it is hdc beacause there are two cd-rom drives on the primary IDE, but i'm not sure. I also have a second drive (which i had unplugged when i made the fdisk -l), and that is hdd. Do the harddisks become hdc and hdd whem they are put onto the secondary IDE? Should i try swapping the primary and secondary IDE-cables?
