Can you paste the contents of your /etc/lilo.conf file here. Only the stanza relating to Windows is necessary (it'll start "other="). You'll need to be the root user to do that.


edit to another clarification:

Also, what OS is on what disk (you did say you had two, right?) - /etc/fstab will tell you (paste if you want).

I'm at school right now, but when I'm home I'll post the file.
I have installed Windows XP on HD40gig
and I have installed Linux on HD120GIG.
Afterwards I have installed linux again on HD40GIG on the windows partition with the intention to choose at the startup what OS to use.

This worked so far.
Untill I wanted to launch windows of cource ...

I hope somebody can help ...
(I'll post the file in an hour or so)

Kind regards

Is there no OS at all on hda?
Or did you physically swap the hdd's during
install or from BIOS? That lilo.conf looks odd :)

When you talk about HD1 and HD2 in the
first post ... are those partitions or separate
physical devices?


Cheers,
Tink

I have 2 HD's on the pc.
HD1, the first HD has got 2 partitions.
This HD has got Windows on partition 1 and Linux mandrake 10.0 on partition2

The second HD has got also a OS, namely Mandrake linux 10.0

So they got both a OS.
However, the 2nd HD doesn't come in the lilo, and it doesn't needs to.
The only thing I want is that I can choose bitween linux and wndows at the startup ...

Hope this helped.


Kind regards

Boot your Linux, open a terminal and type 'mount'. Then look at the result and search for the directory you have your WIndows files in /mnt/windows (or just /mnt/). What do you have in the same line at the beginning? If it's /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 or /dev/hda1 you need to change the lilo.conf file. I'd also show you the lat section:
Code:
other=/dev/hda1
	label="windows"
	table=/dev/hda
Save it, run 'lilo' as root and reboot to see if it works.
