I need help. I installed RH 8.0 today here is the setup
I have a 20 GB HDD.
I had dual boot betweeen WIN98 and Win XP
Win98 was C:
Win XP is E:
I formatted over Win 98 and installed RH 8.0 on it using GRUB as the boot loader.
The install went fine but I cant get back into XP. Can some one please post a link for help booting between these OS's or how to configure GRUB to boot.
Grub listings for DOS are as follows
rootnoverify (hd0, 4)
I can boot into RedHat no problem
if i choose dos it will start to load and it will just hang with the words
and it just sits there
I read somewherre that you have to configure grub a little differently to load with Windows OS????
okay I a couple of items here
1. I rebooted and went into GRUB bootloader screen
I edited the parameters for the 'dos' boot to be rootnoverify(hd1,4) as suggested. It attempts to load WInXP and then it tells me that NTLDR not found. Ibeleive that is Windows boot loader. This is not good if it can't find this file I am assuming???
2.I can get into grub but I cant open grub.conf file I get a friendly warning box that says there are no associated viewers to view the file?
3 i went to the run command and entered sbin/fdisk -l and nothing happened so what should I do from here???
