I have windows xp on my first harddrive and installed linux on a second one. When the OS option screen comes up and I select windows it says
NTLDR is missing
press any key to restart
error loading operating system
I have gone back and tried to change the bootloader by reinstalling linux and choosing different bootloader options (install fedora on mbr, and on first sector, intall on xp on mbr or first sector....etc).
I was told that its looking for XP on the second harddrive.
How do you get the GRUB bootloader to recognize XP on the first harddrive.
I have been unable to see the first hardrive on the Linux GUI, all there is is floppy, cdrom and file system (I was hoping I could get into the windows files on the other HD and somehow change the boot.ini file).
I am brand new to Linux, been at it a little over a week now.
Partitioning my first harddrive for both linux and xp is not an option (I messed it up trying to parttion to many times and lost around 45 gigs).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
