Full Version: Dual Boot, Big Problem
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
Hey, I am a linux-newbie, and have a big problem.

Ok, here is the deal,

I just installed rh 8, and used a dual boot, with win xp on hda, and linux on hdb(shared with files on xp, but partitioned off)

I try to get into xp, through Grub, and this is what it tells me:

Booting Win XP

rootnoverfity (hd0, 0)
chainloader +1

error 25: Disk Read Error

Hit any key to continue...

If anyone could help me asap, I have an essay to finish!!! :pinch:

see if you can use a windows boot disk to fdisk the master boot record
and that will get rid of grub
type the following at the a: prompt

fdisk /mbr

and you then should be able to boot to windows again

hope this helps
I installed Partition Magic a while back and that got rid fdisk.

No fdisk for me. Anyone got anything else? PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
download fdisk onto a bootable floppy then
how can you get rid of fdisk...
its like something you should never
get rid of ...

find a copy somewhere then
