I have Fedora Core 4 and Windows XP Home on a single SCSI Hard Drive with a Grub Boot loader
Windows (the OS we all love to hate) has developed a number of problems ( surprise surprise) and I wish to reinstall it. However when I boot my system from the Windows XP CD the CD is unable to find my hard drive or windows partition. I thought this may be due to the boot loader in the MBR.
As much as I would love to dump Windows ( I do hate it!) I like my games too much.
Do you need any third party SCSI drivers? If so, you might have look up the chipset and download drivers to a floppy. I was lucky enough to have a VIA based chipset for my satan drives. (which has drivers for just about every operating system. )
Windows doesent see the harddrive because it doesent have a driver for the SCSI controller your useing. Need to press f2 during boot and load the SCSI driver from the floppy disk provided by your motherboard manufacture.
if they only gave you a cdrom read the documents provided with it and it should have instructions on how to create this disk.
