Hello, my email - email@example.com
Please help - if my question has already been answered - then please direct me to that thread
I need a simple way to boot both debian and xp - debian either as an external usb HD or a partition in my existing internal HD on my notebook.
I don't want to upset the existing boot sequence in XP.
I have already successfully installed debian on an external usbHD - when my internal xp HD was taken out - and boot is fine as long as i don't put back the xp drive. When put back - then i get grub error ...
I have tried also to install debian with xp drive in place - install of debian seemed successful - but when finished - i could not boot either system - and eventually when i managed to get back my xp boot - my second partition on the xp drive went invisible - and i had to spend a lot of time to get that partition visible.
Easybcd seems a promising software - but it not for xp only vista?
Please is there a stable method and fail safe application so i can dual boot both xp and debian - debian looks very promising indeed and may completely change over in the future after further testing.
It seems although linux is getting better by the second - not enough attention is being paid to the dual boot issue - some simple is needed without upsetting the existing boot ....
Please advise: Adam Gill
