i have a pc whic i installed xp on it then i cleared the mbr of my hdd then i installed linux mate , i was surprised that my linux can't auto detect my xp system i'm using burg as a boot manager and i need to know the right menu entery to manually add my xp system to the burg.cfg
The only thing I know about burg is that it is grub spelled backwards. As pointed out to you above, you could easily do this with Grub by using sudo os-prober and then sudo update-grub. It's not clear which distribution of Linux you are using as 'Mate' just refers to the Desktop which is used by a number of different distributions.
Where do you have 'burg' installed, on the Linux partition or windows? Maybe there is a 'burg' forum.
i use linux mint and the place i installed burg is to mbr of sda
From Mint? Do you have the standard files such as the grub.cfg file used in grub? If there is, why not manually enter a chainloader entry for windows pointing to sda3? What do you see as output on the screen when you run sudo os-prober as suggested above?
