linux loads winxp(second disk), it says "ntldr is missing"


Hi.

I got this problem. After 4 hours reading this forums i cant solve it.

I have got 2 disks. On the primary master a debian linux, on the secondary master i installed a winXP. After installing it (W
indows) owerwrites my MBR and starts OK - but linux is unaccesible. So I boot from Knoppix to run lilo and obtain acces again
to the linux. At this moment the problem starts. After booting now, the lilo loads linux properly, but when selecting the "WinXP-new" (see my lilo.conf in attachment), the mesage "NTLDR is missing" appears. I've tried to fix it like in linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=7224 the "linuxcool" man describes, but with no succes

can anybody help? thanks...


my lilo.conf
# Support LBA for large hard disks.
#
lba32

# Overrides the default mapping between harddisk names and the BIOS'
# harddisk order. Use with caution.
#disk=/dev/hde
# bios=0x81

#disk=/dev/sda
# bios=0x80

# Specifies the boot device. This is where Lilo installs its boot
# block. It can be either a partition, or the raw device, in which
# case it installs in the MBR, and will overwrite the current MBR.
#
boot=/dev/hda

# Specifies the device that should be mounted as root. (`/')
#
root=/dev/hda7


# Installs the specified file as the new boot sector
# You have the choice between: bmp, compat, menu and text
# Look in /boot/ and in lilo.conf(5) manpage for details
#
install=/boot/boot-menu.b

# Specifies the location of the map file
#
map=/boot/map


# Specifies the number of deciseconds (0.1 seconds) LILO should
# wait before booting the first image.
#
delay=100

# You can put a customized boot message up if you like. If you use
# `prompt', and this computer may need to reboot unattended, you
# must specify a `timeout', or it will sit there forever waiting
# for a keypress. `single-key' goes with the `alias' lines in the
# `image' configurations below. eg: You can press `1' to boot
# `Linux', `2' to boot `LinuxOLD', if you uncomment the `alias'.
#
# message=/boot/bootmess.txt
prompt
timeout=20
# prompt
# single-key
# delay=100
# timeout=100

# Specifies the VGA text mode at boot time. (normal, extended, ask, <mode>)
#
# vga=ask
# vga=9
#
vga=normal

# Kernel command line options that apply to all installed images go
# here. See: The `boot-prompt-HOWO' and `kernel-parameters.txt' in
# the Linux kernel `Documentation' directory.
#
# append=""

# Boot up Linux by default.
#

default=Linux-2.4.f
#default=WinXP-new

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.3
label=Linux-2.6.3
read-only

#image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.25

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.floppy

other=/dev/hda8

other=/dev/hdc1
#other=/dev/hdc doesnt work, too
label="WinXP-new"
map-drive = 0x80
to = 0x82
map-drive = 0x82
to = 0x80

#other=/dev/hda5

another problem

I see, nobody knows the answer
However, I did it finally other way, I could not wait. I installed windows on primary and linux secondary. But I still got a problem, a different one.. It's more about hardware than linux, I suppose.. so I'll write it to the Hardware section.
bye everyone
