Re: Problem booting into that other OS using grub

The grub entry is a simple :

title Other
        map (hd2) (hd0)
        rootnoverify (hd2,0)
        chainloader +1

(and I think the map part is largely irrelevant since the latest version
of the other OS enumerates disks like linux and grub now)

1. The most obvious thing that jumps out at me is that you are mapping hd2 to hd0, but then not trying to boot from hd0. The first line is saying to treat hd2 as hd0, so it is typically followed by "rootnoverify (hd0,0)". I would either remove the map line or change the following line to access hd0.

2. I guess you are pretty sure that the NTFS drive is hd2. Interesting that it is hde under Linux, though. You have verified in the BIOS that it is hard drive number 3?

3. And just a tip. When I have such a situation, I typically add a bunch of entries to grub.conf. Then I go through them one by one until I find one that works. Much easier than failing to boot Other, booting Linux, editing grub.conf, and trying again.
