I tried to send a msg earlier, but don't see it.
Anyway, I had an extra 15gb drive, so installed XP on it, for use
in my present part-time job (need devtools that are M$ specific).
I installed the drive as hdb, installed XP on it,
editied lilo.conf by adding
I've tried with
but that wasn't sure if that made sense to me, since XP is on the second
partition of that drive, although, I am assuming that XP did rewrite the
MBR on that drive, and hdb1 would be the boot sector.
Nonetheless, that configuration didn't work, either.
I can reboot my Linux fine, of course, but, presently, the only way I
can boot the XP drive is to halt the system, pull the plug on the main
drive (my k12 installation) and boot from the second hdd.
I did re-run lilo to compile with the new settings each time.
When I give Lilo the command to boot msxp
the machine just hangs, and hangs, and hangs, and does nothing.
for a long time.
regardless of whic of these configurations I've tried.
So, I'm assuming that something I told it was incorrect and it's
not finding the XP to boot it.
hda is linux
hdb is XP
gracias, mis amigos.
