    GRUB boot loader problem with Windows XP Pro

    Hi Everyone! Yesterday I install Suse 9.1 Pro with GRUB boot loader, and Windows as default selection. The installation was OK and everything is good, but when I try to boot my windows xp pro I received message: "root 9hd0,0) Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7 chainloader +1". I try to change in my BIOS settings, in hdd section, "Access Mode" from "auto" to "lba", but I still have tha same message. I tried to edit the "menu.lst" file, and I instead
    ....title Windows
    root (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1
    I write:
    ...title Windows
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1
    But when I try to boot my windows xp pro again, I got the message:
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1
    Please HELP!

    correct me if i'm wrong, but the menu.lst is for lilo i think, for as far as i know, at least this is with grub on redhat9, the config file is found in /boot/grub/grub.conf

    so maybe you should take a look at this one if it excists....

    have you read the tutorial section on this forum?


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
