Unhappy Installing Lilo in SATA disk with mandriva 2006


Hi guys.

Well I'm trying to install a dual boot system XP/Mandriva in a sata disk.

The problem is that I have 1 250 GB sata disk and 2 ide disks (40 and 60 gb each). When installin Mandriva automaticaly creates a lilo menu with this options

linux
linux-nonfb
failsave
windows
windows1
windows2

windows option points to my 40 gb hd
windows1 points to my 60 hd
and windows2 points to the sata disk

I erased the windows and windows1 option in the wizard an let the windows2 option, just rename it to Shitdows and when I try to boot tells me "Missing NTLDR"

I checked the lilo.conf file and in the windows part says

other=/dev/sda1
label="Shitdows"
table=/dev/sda
map-drive=0x82
to=0x80
map-drive=0x80
to=0x82

Then compared it with the one from my laptop and the laptop have this

other=/dev/sda1
label="Shitdows"
table=/dev/sda

Obviously I've already tried ereasing the map-drive stuff from the pc lilo.conf but still the same

any idea

Thanks

Well I found the problem

After changing the lilo.conf file I forgot to execute lilo so it uses the new .conf file
