Problem to boot w2k from GRUB
 
Hi,

I have problem to boot W2K, here is the details :

I have two hard disk:

on Hard disk_1 (as master), i installed FEDORA 3 (GRUB install on MBR)

on Hard disk_2 (as slave) there is W2K installation.


When i try to boot my W2K i get this message :

rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

and nothing happened

this is my grub.conf

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.

post you grub config file so people can check it out (it's either menu.1st or grub.conf).

I'm having the same problem, except I have both OSes installed one harddrive. You can see my post here. I have no idea why this is happening. Your problem is exactly like mine though, it just sits there, no NTLDR message or anything.

However, since you are using two drives, there is something you can try:

title Windows
map (hd0,hd1)
map (hd1,hd0)
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1
makeactive

the map lines logically swap the two harddrives, so Windows will think it is on the master drive. The makeactive is there since I've always seen it on Window boots. If that doesn't work, you may want to add the line 'boot' after makeactive.
