save default
make active
map (hd0)(hd1)
map (hd1)(hd0)
chainloader +1
Depending on what partition Server is on, the entry will be similar. From the existing entry, it appears that XP is on the #2 drive. Is that also where Server is?

For completeness, post the output of "fdisk -l" (run as root)

boot
This works for me on the command line grub for mint linux (lint minux)
except i only needed to use
chainloader (hd0,1)+1
boot

but then I installed the graphical grub.
brought me back to windows 3.1 with that crap. lol

Wow thanks for showing me how to look at a date. First things first. this is a forum for linux questions is it not. Don't all you cry baby's, like you, cry, when something is double posted; so which one is it crybaby. Second I found this post from google search; Meaning anyone with the same question is going to come here first, If my post had helped someone then who cares. and Third a lot of distos and a lot of newer distros are starting to use the command grub for added security reasons such as fingerprint reader logins in opensuse, and used in general on mint linux. And last if you didnt need any info out of this post then why the PHUK did you ever click on it!!!
So you know what, I will post whatever I want, Wherever I want, Whenever I want. I can see countless posts with the same thing going on in this very website. So what you gonna do, Have me banned!? lol. I can go to hotmail and make emails all day long. Ban me by my ip and i can change it all day long. So, good luck to you, and leave me alone, or I'll call John Walsh on America's most wanted and tell him your a kidnapper.

boot
These commands worked for me perfectly, although had to move some spaces here and there.
I just have 1 question now. I have been able to boot into windows but everytime my laptop turns ON I have to type in these set of commands. How do I make it boot properly ? Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

As I said, you might have to try to play around with spaces here and there for the commands to work.
Unfortunately I can't remember what exactly worked, but with a few trials it worked.

You need to start a new thread and give information on which Linux distribution you are using and what you are trying to do, boot some windows system?

Windows actually advises against having two systems on one partition, as one confounds the other.

In the Windows XP repair console you should be able to re write the MBR and Fixboot.

Having chosen which Windows with the 1 or 2 seeing you have more than one.

At the Dos Prompt you will need to type:

fixmbr c: It will ask for a yes or no.

On selecting Y, it will write a new MBR and politely wipe out Grub. So be warned.

Then type fixboot c: it will ask for confirmation with y/n selecting y will write the new boot sector.

Note you could of course by pass the Windows Repair Console and press R, this will cause Windows Setup to delete a bunch of files and replace them. This will take some time. Lots of patience needed.

Grub will need to be reinstalled, or Easy Boot Programme. There's a freeware programme that will make the equivalent of Grub. Instead of Grub appearing on the screen first the Easy Boot Programme screen. Here you can choose a Linux distribution.

Either way your in for a long haul job.
