    This code should work :
    Code:
    title Windows Vista
                rootnoverify (hd1,1)
                map (hd0) (hd1)
                map (hd1) (hd0)
                chainloader +1
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    The above change in code still gave the error 21.

    #boot=/dev/sda
    default=0
    timeout=8
    splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    hiddenmenu
    title Fedora Core (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6)
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
    initrd /initrd-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.img

    title Windows Vista
    rootnoverify (hd1,1)
    map (hd0) (hd1)
    map (hd1 (hd0)
    chainloader +1

    There are three partitions in second disk. First is Dell Recovery Partition. We have tried to boot Vista from second partition but it didn't work. Try third partition now :

    Code:
    title Windows Vista
    rootnoverify (hd1,2)
    map (hd0) (hd1)
    map (hd1 (hd0)
    chainloader +1

    This code also gave me error 21

    Is it a typo? It should be +1 instead of 1+.
    Code:
    chainloader +1

    Well,

    I switched Windows Vista to primary and Linux to secondary. Sata cables.
    I am trying to use EasyBCD a windows boot manger to help boot Linux Fedora.
    I reinstalled Linux on the secondary hard drive and when prompted I chose the option to have the grub bootloader to boot off the mbr instead of the linux partion.

    Even with EasyBCD 1.72 Linux still does not boot.
    I am so frustrated. I just wanted to be able to use Linux Fedora at home because at school I am taking Linux fundementals and thought it would be good practice.
    thanks

    I had no luck trying to boot Linux through Vista so put my computer back to the way when Istarted.

    Heres the new fdisk.

    Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
    /dev/sda2 14 60801 488279610 8e Linux LVM

    Disk /dev/sdb: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sdb1 1 6 48163+ de Dell Utility
    /dev/sdb2 7 1312 10485760 7 HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sdb3 * 1312 60802 477850624 7 HPFS/NTFS
    [root@localhost ~]#

    I am now going to attempt to run this grub file:
    #boot=/dev/sda1
    default=0
    timeout=8
    splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    hiddenmenu
    title Fedora Core (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6)
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
    initrd /initrd-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.img
    title Windows Vista
    rootnoverify (hd1,2)
    map (hd0) (hd1)
    map (hd1) (hd0)
    chainloader +1


    Thanks for your help Mr. casper.

    Can you confirm current system operation/problems ...
    With Windows hard drive only connected does Windows boot?
    With Linux hard drive only connected does Linux boot?

    Can you run
    Code:
    find /boot/grub/grub.conf
    and
    Code:
    find /boot/grub/menu.lst
    from grub prompt ... you probably need to press escape to get the menu and c for the command prompt ? if so what is reported?

    In addition to Jonathan183's suggestion, based upon the Grub error, you might check the cables to the drive from the mother board and power supply.
