Strange boot!


I had SuSE linux 8 in my pc only, but a few days ago I installed windows XP in the second HD (linux is on /dev/hda5 and windows on /dev/hdb1).
I configured the lilo to have 2 selections linux and windows, the linux is working good! But when I selecting to boot windows it stucks!
Can anyone help?

Thanks

Could you post your /etc/lilo.conf here so we can see the problem

Thanks

Ok, winbloze REALLY likes to be first. It's greedy like that, since you have it on your slave HD, you have to trick it into believing it's really first. So add this to the entry for winbloze:
map-drive=0x80
to=0x81
map-drive=0x81
to=0x80

And to find out more, read this thread:

Cool
