I started out with windows xp on my computer, then I added Fedora Core 5. I decided to add another distro, so I installed Kubuntu. That worked fine. I had a triple boot system.
I downloaded Ubuntu and tried it out as a live CD and discovered that I like it better than Kubuntu. So I installed it.
Now I can't boot into Fedora. I tried reinstalling, first Fedora and then Ubuntu. It didn't help.
This is my hard drive layout --
/dev/sda1 '/' for Ubuntu 5GB ext3
/dev/sda2 winxp 45GB ntfs
/dev/sda5 Fedora 49GB ext3
/dev/sda6 swap 2GB
/dev/sda7 '/boot' Ubuntu 49GB ext3
This is what fdisk shows --
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System

/dev/sda7 13080 19457 51231253 83 Linux
The grub entry for Fedora was --
title Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux) (on /dev/sda5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 root=/dev/sda5
But that didn't work, so I changed it to --
title Fedora Core 5
and rebooted. On the boot screen I chose Fedora and this is the message I received --
'Error 13: Invalid or unsupported format'
I haven't found a solution to this yet, so I'm asking for help. Please?
