Question Installing Fedora Core 5 on Compaq presario V5210US

Hi guys,

i got a problem trying to install Fedora Core 5 in my Compaq Presario V5210US, as known, this model comes with WXP Home Ed., and a second partition with all HP soft. and recovery stuff.

First, i clean out all data from the disk, including the recovery partition (of course i did all backups and burns all of it ), them, i decided to have a dual boot for some applications that not yet i can use on Fedora, i install WXP Pro, and then fedora, after everything on fedora works (except for the wireless but its just drivers) i tried to logging to WXP but the loader (grub) freez, i tried to boot from the WPX Installation CD, but the systems halts!, i tried to copy the NTDETEC to the WXP partition but even on fedora i cant got it.

Some one knows what happens? What can i do?



compaq, fedora 5
