ok so today i though i'd try ubuntu
and i liked it, so i thought i'd install it on the slave HDD
which is 250gb, and then i dident want the boot loader coming up
all the time because my father uses the computer
so i though i should get away with ubuntu so i
put in the xp disk went into recover mode and used the fixmbr command
ok so the boot loaders gone
but my second hdd is gone, well its their but i cant access it
or see it in my computer all i have is my C drive
and if i go into my control panel>administrative tools>computer management.
i can see the second hdd in disk managment
but i have 2gb of unallocated partition? and i have no idea why
im abit confused.
i've done some google searching and nothings helped.
can anyone help?
When you set up ubuntu you have to make sure GRUB is your main boot loader and not Windows. It will then give you a boot menu option. you will not be able to swap back and forth without running a VM. just so you know.
