Linux boot


I recently installed fedora core 1 as a dual boot along with windows xp. The windows partition boots up but after the windows xp logo comes up a blue screen comes up and the computer reboots and goes to grub bootloader menu. I am not able to boot into my windows partition but Linux works fine.

Booting from Windows XP cd -> selecting recovery console and running chkdsk /p might have helped rebuild/repair file table ...
