As I mentioned in my other thread, I've found an old HDD.
I intend to get the files from it http://www.hellbo. . .d_id=14906

Once I've done this, I was wondering if it would be possible to dual boot using that, and my current HDD.

I should also add that my curent master HD is SATA2, as my motherboard is designed for.. and the other HD is IDE.

Does anyone know if this is possible and if so, how?
Thanks very much.

I presume it's Windows XP's.
Unless you or anyone else may have changed it?


lol For some reason that didn't even cross my mind, sorry for asking a pretty pointless question lol.

Right, so yeah it's XP's, so it should be easy enough to dual boot with two HDDs?
I'm planning on XP + Fedora?

If anyone already has that setup on seperate HDDs I'd be very grateful for any tips/help.

Thanks for all the info Grin

Well I went for the installation, but I can't actually get Fedora to install >_<.

I do all the config stuff (running "Install to Hard Drive" App from the LiveCD).
I keep getting "Unhandled Exception" with anaconda Sad
I get this after "Copying live image to hard drive."
During "Doing post-installation" I get the exception.

I've googled around but I can't seem to find any reasons for this that apply.
If anyone's had this problem, I'd greatly appreciate any tips or suggestions.

[Edit]
Here's the "Details" of the error, don't know if it's any use.

I had the same problem, Try disabling all addons, Just do a bare install then update off the internet.

By the way if you want to dual boot in windows use this boot loader in your boot.ini file:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
c:\bootsect.lnx="Linux"

Edit> Fucking retarded spelling.

What options are you selecting for install? Perhaps try korgs idea and let us know how it goes, if you get past that i can help with configurations etc.

I'm sure if he does what I said it will work. If he knows what to do.
