Dual-booting with Knoppix and Windows XP Home
So recently I downloaded Knoppix 3.4, burned it, tried it out, and loved it. So I decided that I would go ahead and install it on my hard drive. My problem is that I can't get a boot loader to work, or the NT loader, anyway. But I'll walk through what I've done and hope someone will see the blindingly obvious mistake that I seem to be overlooking. And incase anyone is wondering, all of these steps I got off of various sites. If it's important to see where I got the info, I can dig the sites up again.
Okay, so now I've gone through and installed it all. (I've installed Knoppix itself to /dev/hdb2. LILO to the root partition, which I'm not sure if thats /dev/hdb2 or /dev/hdb1 so that could be my problem right there, but I've tried both in the next step)
# dd if=/mnt/hdb2 bs=512 count=1 of=/mnt/floppy/bootsect.lin
So now, on a floppy, I've got a boot sector to point boot.ini at in Windows. Basically at this point, I go back to Windows, place bootsect.lin in my C:\ directory, and add the following to boot.ini
So now I restart, select Knoppix in my boot loader, and what happens next is similar to
L 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 ...
And the 01's continue about half way down the screen.
Sorry if this was long-winded, but if anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
