How Do I Change root(hd1,0) to rootnoverify(hd1,0)?


How do I change root(hd1,0) to rootnoverify(hd1,0) to allow Windows XP to load from my Suse setup via GRUB?

Secondly where can I find the multimedia update to support MP3 format in Suse?

Lastly, I need a program to accomidate the installation of MPG files. Anybody?

You need to edit a text file /boot/grub/menu.lst

In there will be a part for the windows boot looking something like

title Windows XP Professional
root (hd1,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

Now just alter the line, save and reboot.

Did you re-run grub-install after making the changes? Also, don't make multiple threads on the same thing :/.

When you say root (hd1,0) that should mean you have Windows on the second hard drive. If that is correct, you should use the map command to make it boot ok.

title Windows XP Professional
root (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
makeactive
chainloader +1
