OK! Well I was having problems getting both O/S's to be bootable at the same time, and then I read somewhere that I need to have the /boot partition on the same physical disk as the MBR. Before I had them on seperate disks. So I have two hard disks, the first (hda) has my XP installation (and the MBR), the second (hdb) is where I want to install FC5.
So, I open up partition magic, and set up an unallocated 100MB partition on hda, at the front of the disk, before the Windows XP. It tells me I need to restart, so I do and it sets up the new partition. It takes a while, good 45 minutes, as it has to move the Windows Partition forward 100MB. When its done I go back to partition magic to check that everything is alright, and it is. I now have a 100MB unallocated partition on hda for the /boot partition and the unallocated partition on hdb for FC5.
So, I chuck in the FC5 install dvd, restart and set up the installation options, click next to install and I get an exception message pop up. I didn't take a note of it, but I probably should have, the error log was quite big. So I click ok and it shuts down the installation and tells me its ok to restat my computer.
I load up partition magic again and I get something very strange, which I took a screenie of: http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/4...rtition6kk.jpg
The partition is labelled BAD, and I can't do anything to it bar 'format' and 'set active'. It seems to be working though as Windows loads fine. If anyone knows how I can fix it that would be appreciated.
