thank you for your help so far, but I get the same results except for the lilo restarting even tried to use grub booth just sit there and do nothing. I forgot to metion that when installing linux i got a error message saying that the partion or mbr is not aligned correctly and i should make a linux boot disk. i even reinstalled windows over it self. Is there any way of saving my windows files? could I install another version of windows over linux would that be easier and then install linux back? any help is greatly appreciated thanks.
i had a similar problem , except i have two hard drives instead of one. what i did was that put the xp cd in the cd rom, right after i turn my machine, it asked if i wanted to boot from cd which i accepted. it then took me to xp set window. i chose the recovery section. once there, i was able to see both my drives and the partitions on each one. selected the drive with the problem and deleted the partition. that solved the problem. i dont know if this will help you, good luck
Originally posted by aaa Describe the problem again. You boot, then... ? What did you change?
used the xp cd to fixmbr and fixboot
I mad the changes above to the lilo config file and did this command /sbin/lilo
I still no change
tried to change to grub and still no change
the only thing i have fixed is when selecting xp at the lilo boot screen it does not go back to lilo just says starting xp and that is it, same for grub boot gives me different info I think is was something like this
