Well, I got a mandrake cd-rom and try to install it. Have u ever heard this story one day? So, I have one HD and with 3 partitions |
1 - logical partition
2 - windows xp
3 - windows me
I use here PARTITION MAGIC. So, before installing mandrake-linux I divided in 2 logical partition, so I should avoid making usual newbie mistakes. When I boot up with the cd-rom, no problem at all! Started the install proccess and I had to format the 4th partition (the one for linux i created) to continuous installation proccess. Everythings was fine.
Everytime i want to boot to another system, before Mandrake, i used POWER QUEST | power boot, so I mark the system I want to use after reboot and that s all, the pc reboot and i enter into the one i had choosed before. But, now, with Mandrake i could enter with no problem into ME partition. After I get along with ME and try to use POWER BOOT to enter into -> XP i got an error as LOAD BOOT now it s controlled by LINUX i don t know how to get into my XP system. Anyone here have an opinion?
