Adding Via Raid0 to Grub???


Please help me out with the following problem:

I've installed Suse Linux 10.0 on my computer (on my 3th HD)
After installing and during first boot i saw that Grub did not automaticly found the Raid0 WinXP partition.

So i tried to find out how to add this partition to Grub.

Yast is giving me this configuration:

/dev/sda 152.6 GB Maxtor
/dev/sda1 1.0 Swap
/dev/sda2 151 Native
/dev/sdb 149 GB WesternDigital
/dev/sdb1 149 GB
/dev/sdc 149 GB Seagate (Disk1 of ViaRaid0)
/dev/sdd 149 GB Seagate (Disk2 of ViaRaid0)

--edit-- I devided the Rai0 configuration in a 50 GB C: en a 250 GB D:

In Grub (/boot/grub/menu.lst) i added the following:

title Windows XP Pro
chainloader (/dev/sdc)+1

--> did not work!

title Windows XP Pro
chainloader (/dev/sdc1)+1
--> did not work

So now i am out of options??

Can anyone please help me out here? I would be very thankfull!!

Hello!

I dont think grub can boot a raid 0 partition of windows xp.
I read the documentation for grub and found nothing about booting a raid 0 ntfs filesystem.

Greetings

Thanks man. I've tried adding a bootsect.lin to my c-partition on windows and ajusting the boot.ini, but it also did not work.

Well, then i just have to live with entering the bios every now and then

Hello!

Another possibilty is to create a bootfloppy. In this case you don´t have to change your bios settings.

For people who have the same problem:

add these lines to your /boot/grub/menu.lst:


Title Windows XP
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader (hd1,0)+1
