Dual boot w/ Gentoo/xp pro vs. gentoo-invalid partition table
I have attempted to dual boot my xp professional machine with gentoo-linux. Got xp running; partitioned for gentoo; got as far as compiling the kernel, and had to stop. I # shutdown - halt the installation (had to sleep). I knew I would have to remount to continue from where I was; no sweat. Well, I went to reboot the machine, I got the Dell logo startup splash and then the message: "Invalid partition table". Yikes!!! I am at a loss as to what to do next. I really need to get back to xp to install vb.net for my programming class, as soon as I am done with my homework I can gentoo to my hearts content. If anyone can help me out I would appreciate it. I am on a Dell machine, pent 4, plenty or ram, and a 40 gig hard drive. I am wondering if I may have come across this problem because I made both my /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda2 both bootable. hda1 being my xp partition. dev/hda2 being my gentoo partition. Thanks a whole bunch.
