Connectic Virtual PC 5.2 and Mandrake 9.1


i run winxp professional edition. i have installed win2k using connectix virtual pc as well on the machine.

c: winxp
e: win2k
f: mandrake

i have created the drives so as to keep the virtual hard disks for win2k and mandrake in separate drives.

i installed mandrake 9.1 (bamboo) using the first CD which i mounted on xp using daemon tools. connectic virtual pc detected it and hence installation went well.

problem occurs after installing mandrake 9.1. i am required to reboot and when i do, the bios settings are displayed and that's it. a blinking key is there as if i need to enter something to boot mandtake 9.1 but i cant enter anything and nothing happens.

why is this happening? it happened twice and it's the second time i have installed mandrake 9.1 afresh using connectix virtual pc 5.2. still same story.

i'd appreciate your help.
