Two drives... no boot possible
Following the suggestions from several responses to a thread I started last week I seem to have a problem, Huston!
I have two seperate hard drives: 1 contains Windoze XP - master drive and the second contains
Fedora Core 3 - slave drive.
I installed GRUB in the MBR of the primary drive containing Windows XP.
I created the following partitions on the second drive:
/boot /swap and /
When I reboot the PC after installing Linux all i get is a GRUB prompt and nothing else.
Nothing boots,, nothing happens.
I solved the issue by entering the command FIXMBR after booting off the Windows XP install disk.
So, what did I do wrong?
(PS: the primary drive containing Windoze is an "active partition. The secondary drive
containing Linux is an "inactive" partition which I received a warning about during the install
of Linux. However, the installation seems to have completed successfully)
