NTLDR missing when trying to boot WinXP
I have a similar problem as johno but the other way around...
I just installed the FedoraCore 2 on my lap-top with WinXP and tried to make the dual-boot. The result is that i can boot my computer with Fedora but when i try to boot with WinXP the message of "NTLDR missing" appears and i have to restart.
I can give you the partitions as they appeared during the installation of FC2 and hope you can give me a solution (part, type, size, mounting point):
/dev/hda1 VFAT 18607MB
/dev/hda2 EXT3 100MB /boot
/dev/hda3 VFAT 8MB
/dev/hda4 extesa 9901MB
/dev/hda5 SWAP 992MB
/dev/hda6 EXT3 8910MB /
I have tried to manually boot from grub but all i get is the same result. If i type boot (hd0,0) i get the message "Error8: Kernel must be loaded before booting" and if i list all the partitions i get something like this:
Partition number 0: Filesystem type is FAT, partition type 0xc
Partition number 1: Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
Partition number 2: Filesystem type is FAT, partition type 0x1e
Partition number 4: Filesystem type is unknown, partition type 0x82
Partition number 5: Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
Note that partition number 3 is not detected (!) and i guess this was the one to boot with WinXP... and partition 4 is type unknown, so i guess i did something wrong when partitioning with Fedora insaller... (i'm a complete newbie)
I would like to know if there is any possibility to recover the WinXP, any suggestion will be welcomed.
Thanks in advance and greetings from Barcelona,
