I am a noob, but learning. I have 2 hard drives. C:60G has a NTFS partician-XPpro boot.~~E:60G has 3 particians/ at the front 15,983.8mb Linux Ext2/ 1004.1mb swap file/ and 41,653.8mb Hidden NTFS. I use lilo as my bootloader, and Mandrake linux 9.2/Xp dual boot. XP boots fine, Linux boots fine. I cannot get XP to unhide my E:NTFS partician. Im using partician magic. When I attempt to unhide and reboot, I get an NT not found error, then skipping scancheck- then XP boots ok, minus one hard drive. Iv been searching the net for the last week trying to figure this one out. So far the best I have come is this thread. http://www.techsupportforum.com/show...&threadid=3981
The threads dead, and Iv not familiar enough with Linux yet to change lilo.conf.. exc..on my own. Im getting there. I have 40G of Mp3's and Movies on E, that I really dont want to lose. The best I can think of is to Install XP over the linux partician, to unhide all... then restore orig boot files in C:/, ?? but then how could I get Mandrake back without rinse/repeat??? Please help me. Thanks.
