I have recently installed suse9.1 on a dual boot system with windows xp. suse runs fine and I like it alot, but when I tried to run windows I discovered a problem.

In grub, after choosing Windows from the list of boot options, I get the following error:

QUOTE
root (hd0,0)
  Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
chainloader +1


My hard drive is physically partitioned in this order:
windows C > windows D > windows E > windows F > suse
with all win partitions as NTFS

I can access all my windows files from suse, it even automounts all the windows partitions in /windows which I think is pretty cool, but I do need to actually get into windows

Please help

Here is my grub.conf file:

[quote] root (hd0,8)
install --stage2 = /boot/grub/stage2 /boot/grub/stage1 d (hd0) /boot/grub/stage2 0x8000 (hdo,8) /boot/grub/menu.lst
quit[/quote]

Here is the windows section of menu.lst:

[quote] title Windows
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1[/quote]

I tried editing it to:

[quote] title Windows
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1[/quote]
but that just changed my error message to:
[quote]
rootnoverify
chainloader +1[/quote]
My partitions in greater detail:

/dev/hda1 = windows C
/dev/hda2 = extended
/dev/hda5 = windows D
/dev/hda6 = windows E
/dev/hda7 = windows F
/dev/hda8 = linux swap
/dev/hda9 = linux root

Could my problem have anything to do with the fact that what linux calls my windows C drive is actually labeled in windows as H (dont even ask)?
