After Mandrake Linux 10 is installed,WinXP detects new hardware.Why?


I installed Mandrake Linux 10 Official on my primary computer with Windows XP.When I booted to Windows after using Linux,it detected new hardware.Is this normal?If it isn't,what might be happening?

That's the wierd part.It didn't say what hardware was installed.I didn't do anything different from my installations on other computers.

bruno buys; they are two separate OS's is why. operating systems do operate independant from each other,even if they were different distros.

Ok, but this is no reason for win to detect new hardware. A new OS is not even hardware. Its software.

bruno buys; no os's are not hardware and hardware is not software but one without the other will not function at all. each serve the other. thats
where programming comes in. most hdwr have small software built in to interface with OS's there fore OS's are programs to interface with hdwr.

I think you'll find it detects a generic volume. In other words its noticed u have some partitions of an unknown format on your hard drive. So it registers them, i assume to keep track of current disk geometry.
