I've been flirting with linux (mostly mandrake) for a few months now and had no problem in installing mandrake 9 on my spare second ide hard drive. I was able to select either xp or mandrake without a problem.
i recently purchased a new sata 120 gig HDD and installed xp on that and installed my older ide 80 gig as a secind drive. i wanted to install mandrake 10 on the older secind drive,
Unfortunately everytime i try and install linux on the second drive and select xp from the bootloader, XP will not load up saying that NT bootloader is missing!!!! i n ever had this problem.
i know that when i formatted my new sata on win xp pro installer it said it needed to copy a few files to the older ide. but i dont know why thisis happening.
mandrake detects both drives!! is there known issue with mandrake being installed on a 2 hdd system when xp is on sata and the mandrake distro is installed on the second ide hdd??
