multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
C:\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /cmdcons
C:\linux.bin="Fedora Core 4"
When I click on Fedora Core 4 @ the OS choice menu, nothing happens.
I have 2 HDDs, HDA1/2 where my windows drive is and HDB1-11 where my /boot is the first partition /swap is the second and /hom is the third and the others are FAT32s (vfat) to share between FC4 and XP.
I don't know what is wrong with it, can anyone help?
Distribution: Gentoo (desktop), Arch linux (laptop)
I haven't seen anyone trying to use that way to boot linux.
Why don't you use grub or lilo?
I don't think the windows boot.ini file can load linux.
When you install FC4, it would install grub and configure it for you so that you? what had happend with it?
I cannot help you with this kind of booting method.
If you want to install and use grub, I think I can help
