    with Daily build does NOT work, too


    Hi!
    I wrote on Friday "Problems with GRUB and d-i beta 4".
    Well, I have just used a Daily build instead of Beta 4 and debian installer did recognize Windows during the installation.
    But... if I try to boot it when GRUB appears, I still obtain:

    Booting "Windows NT/2000/XP"
    root (hd0,0)
    Filesystem type unkwnown, partition type 0x7
    savedefault
    makeactive
    chainloader +1

    and Windows does not start.
    Can you help me???

    I've seend this entry for a Windows 2000 install, I recall it worked on the machne that had it (I'm spekaing the boot process not the OS - that's another sad story...)

    title Win 2000 Pro
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1

    btw aren't daily and nightbuilds often directly from the CVS and not to be considered stable? I'd recoment using the latest stable release.
