I've got questions about multi boot.
I'm working on a laptop (buy in august) with 5 partitions, sda1 is a Windows Xp OS and sda5 is an ext3 partition (with mandriva). I just format the sda5 and now grub can't show me the multiboot menu because he has been formated. I'm actually downloading freespire with an other computer.
I just want to know if installing freespire and configuring a multiboot (with grub or lilo) will fix this problem ... Will it detect my Xp2 OS ? have problems with boot sector ?
If i have to enter the winXP partition (sda1) manually what should i write in lilo/grub ?
Monday i won't be connected to the internet before a week so i 'd like to fix my problem today or tomorow
nb : I'm not english, sorry if you can't understand me perfectly.
