Dual boot Win/Linux boot error L?
I have a 20GB HDD with Win 2000 on its c: drive, a 8 GB HDD with RH Linux 9.0. I want to make it dual boot.
I have put *GB as primary Master and 20GB as secondary slave and edited the lilo.conf file od Linux HDD, have re-run lilo, it gave me a warning that "Your BIOS driver cannot be read or seen or so).. Okey..
I booted it, It boots without any probz into Linux but at Windows booting stage it stops saying :
I have tried all the possiblities that i kown, thats changing the physical HDD setting to Sec Master or Pri Slave .. and making the respective corrections in lilo.conf , re-run lilo..
Using lba32 instead of linear in lilo.conf
If what i beleive is true, Since, the MBR has been over-written by Linux, i am not able to boot the Win2000 HDD seperatly too.
I tried a Win2000 rescue CD to boot through, that too didn't result any good.
dd if=/dev/... of=bootsect.lin bs=512 count=1
mounted Win: C;\ , and copied bootsect.lin to C:\
where /dev/... is my "/" partion of my Linux HDD.
Now,, The question goes like this
1) Can i rescue the Win partion out so that, i get back to my original state with Windows to boot on one m/c and Lin to boot on another m/c.
2) Or can i go foreward doing some magics and get my problems solved in from this state to get a dual boot system.
I am sure of the lilo.conf syntax..es, I have doubt reg. the waring message which came regarding the "BIOS driver" (only once when i was usinf Windows as hdd).
Thanks in advance
