Multi boot: selected disk does not exist


Hi all!

Currently I'm running 3 operating systems on my machine (in order of installation); Windows XP, Windows 7 and Fedora 14.

Unfortunately, after I installed Fedora I'm no longer able to boot Windows 7/XP.
When I select the "Other" option in the Grub menu, I get the following error:

Code:
Error 21: Selected disk does not exist
To provide more info, here is a boot info script result:

Is it true that windows is installed in MBR of sda and SDC ?
Before installing FEDORA how do you boot windows 7 and windows xp ?
When you installed FEDORA with drive was the first boot HD to BOOT SDB ?
In that case we have to MAP the drives .

To be sure post you're grub.conf and the outcome off fdisk -l

Mapping drives is something like MAP (hd0,0) (hd1,0)
MAP (hd1,0) (hd0,0)
Assuming that windows is on the first partition

Oh, now that you mention it, there appears to be an error here; all the operating systems are installed on the 160 GB drive (sdb).

Maybe it's mixed up because of the external drive (which is only used for storage, so that drive can be ignored).

Here is a new boot info result, with the external drive disconnected:

When you installed FEDORA with drive was the first boot HD to BOOT SDB ?
I'm not completely sure on this one, but I guess it is.

To be honest I did not know anything about windows beside that will only start from sda or as they called it c:/
So we have to fool windows and let it believe that it is on sda
Change the windows entry map (hd1,0) (hd0,0)
map (hd0,0) (hd1,0)
root(hd0,0)
chainloader + 1
makeactive

If it do not work post again
good luck
