I'm trying to restore my dual boot after a staggeringly catastrophic constellation of mistakes earlier this month. At this point, I've finally gotten linux to boot fine and lilo to run on boot.
I want two OS options: Linux and Windows 2000. At this point they both show up on the list when lilo boots, but only linux actually loads. When I select 'win' and press enter, I am presented with the very same lilo boot screen, but with the selection reverted back to the first option, linux. In short, win2k does not boot.
I have tried to boot up win2k from boot disks and the boot CD. And that works fine. I used the recovery console to look at my partitions, and they seems fine as well (all files accounted for). I have tried to use fixmbr from the console to wipe lilo (since I have a linux boot disk), but, strangely, lilo remains unscathed and proceeds to load on boot.
Here's a copy of my lilo.conf file:
When I type lilo, the installer runs just fine. Has anyone got any ideas as to what might be the problem or how I might go about solving it? Thanks,
P.S. Yes, hda1 is where the windows 2000 sys is installed to.
