Dual booting problem - linux and windows XP
Hi, I hope someone can provide some guidance with this problem...
I had a dual booting system with XP and Mandrake 10.1 Community and could boot into either OS no problem. I replaced Mandrake with Suse 9.1 Pro and was able to boot into linux but when I tried to boot XP I got this message:
Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
I reinstalled Mandrake but still get this message when trying to enter windows. I assume the Suse installation somehow changed the windows partition file system definition (I'm not expert so I've no idea why). I heard about the 2.6 kernel dual boot problem and tried a fix given in a magazine but that hasn't succeded in solving the problem.
Can anybody advise me how to retrieve the windows partition and boot into windows again please?! Thanks for any advice.
