Re: So...um..has anyone gotten dual booting working with FC2?

I've got two harddrives. hda is my linux drive, hdb is my win2k drive.

The default grub config didn't boot my win2k partition, which isn't really a shock as it never has. But, neither did the grub config I had saved from my fc1 install ( as follows )

root (hd1,0)
map (hd0, (hd1)
map (hd1), (hd0)
chainloader +1

My ability with grub is limited enough that I don't really understand what is happening in the above ( the maps are obvious, but why root() and chainloader? ), so I have no clue on how to fix this. I have read the info pages on grub.conf, but from everythign I've read, this should work.

Has anybody gotten grub to work with a similar config?


Chainloader just tells grub to pass on the boot process to the image waiting on the second drive. I think, that is how I understood chainloader to work. However, I believe your config should look somethin' like the following:

title WinXP
       map (hd0,0) (hd1,0)
       map (hd1,0) (hd0,0)
       rootnoverify (hd1,0)
       chainloader +1

Hope this helps.
