i have installed the fedora core 6 linux with grub, which is now booting my two os: fc6 and winxp. but when i put the winxp cd into the cdrom, it wont boot. i have raid, after raid i've get the table with some infos and then 'Verifying DMI Pool Data' then if i'm booting from hdd, it will write 'loading grub stage2' and if i am booting from cd it will write 'Boot from CD'
when i'll try to boot backtrack linux, or something else, it will successfully boot. but when i'll try to boot winxp, i will get black screen. it started a few days after installing fc6. i have this problem for about a year, but now i need to reinstall winxp, and cant... i cannot run repair console to fix mbr... but when i'll try to fix mbr... will the ntloader boot something? and will it help me? thx in advance for any help.

what's the layout of your paritions (and are they on the same drives)?

What bootloader did you place on the MBR and which one did you place on the first sector of the HDD?

More info, the faster and more information will get to you.

use your rescue CD (FC6):

boot: linux rescue

should bring you to a shell terminal with root access.

sh-2.05a#

Mount your partition under a certain DIR (in this case, let's use "dancuc" as a newly created DIR, Note: hda# is the number/location of your partition. But, if you know the location simply use:

sh-2.05a# fdisk -l
sh-2.05a# mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /dancuc

If this is done successfully, great, if not, then maybe you haven't mounted the proper partition (your FC6 one) to the /dancuc DIR/folder; Siimply try it again. That's what linux is all about. Now to mount the sysimage do:

sh-2.05a# chroot /mnt/sysimage

Now, check the grub installation on the partition:

sh-2.05a# grub-install --recheck /dev/hda2

And if that doesn't give you any information, proceed on and do:

sh-2.05a# info grub

Your ouput should be close to something like:

[ hd0 /dev/sda ]
[ hd1 /dev/sdb ]


Now, go ahead and install grub:

grub-install --root-directory=/ dev/sda
grub-install --root-directory=/ dev/sdb


And if you need help setting up your repositories simply PM me and I'll walk you through it. Good luck!

Remember, if you don't get a headache from this you're not learning anything yet.

just download the rescue CDs:

United States (Mirror)
http://iso.linuxq. . .scuecd.iso

Australia (Mirror)
http://iso.linuxq. . .scuecd.iso

Germany (Mirror)
http://iso.linuxq. . .scuecd.iso

By the way, the EXT3 won't be an "H" partition, the naming convention completely changes with different OSes in place.

i see it in partition magic...
so all that i must do is to reinstall the grub?
if i fail with this.. can i remove in partition magic the h drive and some allocation space (that ext3) from hdd, will then my winxp boot correctly?
i have some problems with fc6 too, my hp does not printing in it, and i have all req. files downloaded. so will it help me if i fail with reinstalling grub?

if you give up you'll miss the whole point of using a linux system ...

What you can do is just restart from scratch. Reinstall and specify in the GUI that you want Grub installed on the MBR (never give it to NTLoader -- it's a bad boy trained by micro$ux to not play with Penguin).

[DEL] the H: drive will also delete all data on it, is that something you're willing to do, or is it just out of desperation? Backup your files first, and if you need help keep posting here.
