So I decided just to reboot and linux loaded up via lilo just fine. Still not windows loadable however. When I try to configure grub manually I run into something interesting.
grub> root (hd0,
Possible partitions are:
Partition num: 0, Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
Partition num: 1, Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x82
Partition num: 2, Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
I would imagine that this has a lot to do with my problem. I am just not sure how I would fix it.
-- EDIT --
The partitions that grub shows seem very weird to me. My root partition should be ext3 and this list shows two partitions of unknown and one of ext2. Why doesn't my ext3 partition show up in this list?
-- EDIT --
I was just looking through the dmesg output and I found.
hdc: max request size: 128KiB
hdc: 58605120 sectors (30005 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=58140/16/63, UDMA(100)
/dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0: p1 p2 p3 p4 < >
I am assuming that p1 p2 etc are partitions. Could I explicitly call my partitions using the full path /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0
1 from my bootloaders? Would that make any difference?
