Dual-boot with Windows 2003 Server


I can't seem to manage to get Red Hat Enterprise 4 to dual-boot with Windows 2003 Server.

I've got Red Hat installed on an IDE drive, and Windows 2003 Server on a SATA drive, with grub configured to boot an "other" operating system from /dev/sda1 (which seems correct).

But when I select the "other" option in the boot loader, all I get is this:

Booting "other"
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader 1

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.

I searched around in Google, and happened upon this tip. Works like a charm.

Edit the entry for windows in /etc/grub.conf so it looks like this:

title Windows 2003 Server
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

Whoohoo! I actually got something to work other than by plugging out a monitor
