Yesterday night I tried installing FreeBSD on my laptop (Compaq running on AMD Turion 64).
It already has Windows XP and Fedora Core6 which is working fine.
I didn't get much far in FreeBSD installation, I quit in the middle at a safe place without comitting any changes I made.
But after this when I reboot my machine I'm getting this grub prompt
GNU GRUB version 0.97 (640K lower / 3072K upper memory)
[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. for the first word....
Today I got the Fedore rescue cd and rebooted my machine with that.
I google'd for the grub repair but nothing worked out..
After getting the shell from rescue cd (before doing 'chroot '/mnt/sysimage')
if I give 'fdisk -l'
This is what I'm getting
Disk /dev/sda: 60.0 GB,
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7296 cylinders
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id Systems
/dev/sda1 * 1 2407 19334196 7 HPFS/NTFS

This is grub.conf file in /mnt/sysimage/boot/grub/grub.conf

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
Earlier when the system was working fine, I used to have C:, D
CD DRIVE), E:, F: drives in windows and two partitions in Fedora.
Can anyone share their experiences if you have encountered similar problem.
Thanks in advance.
