Grub and SATA2 Problem


I just installed Fedora 4 on a 2 hard drive system. My Windows Disk is a 120 Gig SATA2 Drive. My Linux Disk is an 80 Gig EIDE. Grub is installed on the MBR in disk one (HD0) and it boots Fedora Fine. Windows is on hd(1,0). At boot time if I choose windows I get output from grub.conf:

rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

Needless to say Windows won't boot unless I disable the IDE drive in the BIOS or physically disconnect it. If anybody has any ideas let me know.

A little more info

I was a little unclear. Fedora is on the IDE and Windows is on the SATA2, and Grub is on the IDE's boot sector.

You probably need to map the SATA drive as the first BIOS drive in grub to get windows to boot.

Look at the example and explanation in the Grub Manual section 4.2.6 “DOS/Windows”: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/man...OS_002fWindows

It’s a windows problem/deficiency.
