Full Version: Configuring Grub
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I have fedora core 3, in my haste whilst installing it I neglected to add my windows drive to the boat lader (grub) configuration. My windows partition (xp) is on a second hard drive (hdb I suppose), and I wish to dual boot with it. My problem is with configring grub; I am not quite sure how to enter the parameters for this partition.
The following is what is in my /boot/grub/grub.conf:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,0)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
    initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.667.img
title Other
    rootnoverify (hd1,0)
    chainloader +1

how do I edit this file (and any others) to allow me to boot windows as well?
the following are my windows partition specifications as seen in fdisk:
Device boot start end blocks id system
/dev/hdb1 * 1 9963 80027766 7 HPFS/NTFS
It looks to me like your grub.conf file is already configured to allow booting into Windows, the relevant part is this:

title Other
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

What happens when you select this "Other" entry on the grub boot menu?
