I can't boot my Mandrake, because the bootloader (LILO) was replaced by the windows bootloader, after I reinstall WinXP.
So I use the Mandrake install CD i order to reinstall the linux bootloader(LILO), just the bootloader not a clean install. This is done by choosing "Upgrade" on the second Mandrake installation UI screen other than "Install".
usually, this step worked well, but this time it doesn't, because I had changed all windows partition with NTFS while my Mandrake recognize the partition (win_c and so on) as an FAT, this raise the error message above and the installation can not continue - too bad
my question is : Is there any way to disable this automatic partition recognition before I enter the Mandrake system (Means : Mandrake doesn't have to mount any other partition other than the root one) so I can install the bootloader with Mandrake intall CD ?
Thank You - Sorry for my bad English
