fedora 5 wont boot / no grub loader installed??
This is my 1st look at linux, downloaded fedora 5 for 64 bit
system is athlon 3000+64 processor
windows xp SP2 on HDD 1 (C drive)
disc 2 is for fedora
booted into dvd and followed all instructions ie checked disc checksum, followed instructions set up second drive for formatting automatically, and all seemed well. got to the grub screen and selected other /dev/hda ( windows) as default boot for now, as not to confuse the rest of the family!
the installation process appeared to go according to plan, took about 30mins and filally I was promped to reboot.
did not see any GRUB screens that allowed me to select Fedora or Windows, just boots into XP.
Checked the D drive in windows, and windows cannot recognise the format, so I'm asuming that it's formatted ok. so...
re booted from DVD and created new boot loader config
"the GRUB boot loader will be installed on dev/hda"
again select other as 1st boot on dev/hda1
then it says
install boot loader on /dev/hda Master Boot Record MBR
then I get a warning..
No Kernal packages were installed on your system. Your boot loader configuration will not be changed
and again after reboot we go straight into windows.
Aslo tried booting straight form the second HDD from the F12 option avaliable on my start up and get a mesage somthing like cannot load/find OS
please make any help as idiot proof as possible
