I though we already ruled the need for mapping out:
PHP Code:
Now as far as i can tell debian is booting but windows is not am I right?

title Windows XP
(hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader +1

Do you need the remapping for windows since xp Pro is on your second drive (i'm guessing from boot-up sequence) and debian on main (still guessing lol)? 
Probably would not have suggested it again.

Glad you got it working though.

I either flew over it or forgot that you posted that, Hern_28, looks like the OP overlooked it, too. Anyway, it's implemented now and Grub has won the day yet again.

Enjoy your new installation!


grub, linux, map, multiboot, xp
