GRUB: How to boot WinXP (NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM & BOOT.INI) from boot partition (EXT2) ?
I am wondering if it is possible to boot Windows XP from my hda1 EXT2 boot Partition?
GRUB is stored on EXT2 (hda1)
The Windows XP boot files have to be stored on the hda1 (which is the EXT2 boot partition, this also is the place where GRUB is installed). GRUB has to boot XP with the information of the files stored on /dev/hda1 , where the XP boot files also are (NTLDR, BOOT.INI, NTDETECT.COM).
So GRUB won't need to obtain the boot information from /dev/hda2 which is usually stored on the Windows XP partition in order to boot it.
hda1 EXT2 128 MB
hda2 NTFS 15 GB
Is this possible to do? If so, how can I do this?
