I have an Asus K55A laptop which came with Windows 7 pre-installed. I'd like to keep Windows on there and setup a dual boot with Slackware 14.
So far, I've managed to get Slackware installed. The problem is with booting it.
I've settled on using a USB boot stick for now, which works well enough, but I'd like to be able to add Slackware to the Windows BCD menu to boot directly from the hard drive.
I haven't tried setting up LILO, since I've read conflicting reports about it working with GPT and do not want to ruin the ability to boot Windows.
What I have
tried is following AlienBob's instructions here:
This didn't work. It gave an error about not being able to boot from a corrupt boot sector, [or words to that effect] with a code 0xc0000098.
Windows still boots fine. This error only pops up if I choose Linux from the boot menu.
Has anyone come across this problem? How did you fix it?
