Booting up windows!!


Hi,
I have partitioned my HD and i have windows 2000 server and FC3 in the other.Initially i had windows in one partition and then i used the other partition to install FC3.FC3 boots up with no problem, but when i am trying to boot windows up by selecting OTHER from the Grub, it gives me the following error message
----------------------------
Booting 'Other'

root not verify (hd0,1)
Chainloader +1

NTLDR is missing
-----------------------------

Could anyone help me to rectify this problem? What might be the cause of this?
Appriciate for any help given.

Cheers,
Azzath

1) throw away Mandy

Azzath,

Windows NT, 2000 & XP all put the NTLDR file somewhere in the middle of the C: drive.

If you are getting a "NTLDR is missing" msg then you must have overwritten that windows boot file during the partitioning of the HD.

Here is what you need to do:

You need to copy the NTLDR program from your original Windows installation CD.

You can put the CD in the CD-Rom drive and try to repair the Windows installation from the Console. This will require that you input the Admin password to become root.

Here is the link: http://www.computerhope.com/boot.htm

Good Luck,

Thorn
