    dual booting with windows 2000


    Hi!
    I'm setting up a dual boot with windows 2000 and ubuntu hardy heron but I now cannot boot into windows from grub. Windows was already installed and I set up ubuntu afterwards. Ubuntu resized the windows partition while I was setting it up. Here is my menul.st:
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4865 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0xa730e7dd
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1        3113    25005141    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda2            3114        4785    13430340   83  Linux
    /dev/sda3            4786        4865      642600    5  Extended
    /dev/sda5            4786        4865      642568+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
    
    Disk /dev/sdb: 13.6 GB, 13676544000 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1662 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0xf02c1be3
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdb1   *           1        1661    13341951    c  W95 FAT32 (LBA)
    and here is my fdisk:

    Have you tried rootnoverify (hd0,0) rather than root (hd0,0) or chainloader (hd0,0)+1 ?
