Grub will not load Windows XP with Ubuntu dual boot
I recently configured a dual boot with Windows XP Professional SP2 and Ubuntu v4.10. I already had XP installed, and I resized my partition using partition magic. Then I installed Ubuntu to the new partition.
When I turn on the computer, if I select Ubuntu from my list of operating systems, it will load just fine. But when I select Windows, it hangs. No errors or anything. Here is the grub config for Windows:
File system type unknown, partition type 0x7
This is the screen that it is stuck on:
Any help will be appreciated!

have a look at your /boot/grub/grub.conf file (in your Linux) and see what it looks like for the windows choice . It should look like :-
title Windows XP rootnoverify (hd2,0) makeactive chainloader +1
ps, please don't use large pictures as your signature as it (a) uses up space on the site and (b) takes me ages to download the page. Thanks.
Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
