    windows installation problem


    Hi,
    I have debian in my system and there is no windows. So the bootloader is grub. For installing windows i am using windows xp cd to boot at start. But the boot cd starts showing black screen and further windows installation is not continuing. I have tried with all windows xp cds but still the problem is there. Is there is any problem with Grub bootloader or mbr please help me in solving this.... because i have met this for more number of times. Not only debain, after installing fedora i met this problem....

    Windows XP Installation CD doesn't after Linux installation in a few machines. Boot up from SuperGRUB CD and select 'Fix Windows Boot Loader' option. It will remove GRUB and Windows Installation CD will work after that.

    Thats strange. Which option did you choose in SuperGRUB options List? Try Windows installation CD on other machine too.
