XP won't boot, loops back to GRUB: dual-boot XP and Ubuntu
I am trying to load Ubuntu Feisty Fawn on my laptop for the first time. I would like to dual-boot with XP to make the transition smoother. I got extremely close, both Operating Systems installed and both appeared in the GRUB menu. But only Ubuntu would boot. XP on the other hand would get to the blue startup screen, and right before it shows the user accounts, the screen would go black and the GRUB menu appeared again. No error messages or anything. I looked for other solutions, and found a number of them, but none of them that I found had exactly my problem, so none of the solutions worked. I finally went back to the Windows MBR and the same thing happened. At that point I wiped my hard drive clean again and started over.
Now I have XP installed and its working fine, but I'm eager to get the dual-boot working. If anyone knows a solution for this problem, I'd appreciate the help.
