The problem for dual system(FC10 and Vista)!


I have successfully installed FC10 and Vista(Windows Vista Home Basic:Service Pack 1) . However, after I update the Vista,I don't run into the Vista again. I don't know whether update the Vista may cause some problems.

Thanks!

Do you mean that Vista is not part of your boot menu? If so, boot Fedora, open a terminal and type the following commands.
Code:
cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
/sbin/fdisk -l
and post the results here please. You'll need to run these commands as root or use sudo.

At first,Thanks for your reply!

The title of "Vista" is in the menu list. Vista can also start, but I only see the scroll bar which run through the display again and again. After a long time, I still can't run into the system. I don't know why this happen.

I'm not sure I understand then. Vista starts to boot but goes into some sort of loop and you never get to the log in?

Sounds like a vista problem to me, if grub has done it's chainload thing and handed over to vista, you're probably on the wrong forum.
Especially as the problem didn't happen until you upgraded vista.
Could it be a confusion about partitions?
Can you put the vista booter into single step mode to see what's causing the problem?

Yeah, Vista starts to boot but goes into some sort of loop! But when I install the two systems, they all can boot normally.
While I update the Vista, I find the I can't boot into Vista again.

Now, I reinstall the Vista. And they all can boot normally again. I just don't know the reason for that problem.

I think that I've read somewhere that Microsoft said when upgrading to SP1 that there could be a lots of problems with your Vista after upgrade,so that's what happend to you.So,next time be careful what updates you will choose for the installation.You know that breaking your system or making it very easy to break is something that Microsoft do very good,well Bill Gates said that Vista is not good,so we should belive him.
