GRUB with Windows ME
Anyway the problem is, this computer has a first hard disc with a very dated Windows ME installation of my father, which we still would like to keep usable.
When using this series of commands in GRUB:
Windows ME responds by requesting going to "save mode". Regardless or whether I choose "normal mode" or "save mode", a reboot is the result, instead of windows actually booting.
Is this a problem specific for ME, would it need additional commands?
Linux lives on the second hard disc and is happily booted by:
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb2
Am just curious whether it's possible to be able to switch to GRUB. It seems a more advanced boot loader (than LILO) should have no problem booting windows if LILO succeeds in it
Thanks for any insights, sorry if this is a dummy question
Edit: Actually, I now remember windows ME refuses to boot since this machine got extra memory added (now 2G + 256MB). As this isn't purely a GRUB problem as-is, perhaps the question should just be deleted; sorry for spamming
use rootnoverify instead of root and do not use makeactive.
