    Fedora RedHat Core 4, GRUB Issues


    I have just installed Red Hat Core 4 and during the installation i kept the boot program as the default GRUB (i read something about a new version when installing) I chose the custom installation and i seleted all the things that i need, so i might have stuffed up in that part where i chose the boot program, but i just assumed that it would work with the default, ne way my problem is that after the installation (completed successfully) my computer just starts normally, into XP. No GRUB menu or ne thing.

    My computer has 2 hard drives one and a half have ntfs partioned harddrives for xp and the other half is where i installed FC4.

    You may need to set the BIOS to boot from the second hard disk, as that's probably where FC4 installed the boot loader too.

    You could also try to install grub or another boot loader into the first hard disk, but that could mean having to re-run the installer.

    Where did you install Grub to?
    MBR or root partition?

    If you installed to the root partition, open a terminal, and type

    su > root password
    grub-install /dev/hda

    that should do the trick.
