Dual Boot and my screwy BIOS - not an LQ per se
I recently installed Debian onto an older laptop I have and decided to make it dual boot with XP. I'd love for it to be able to boot to either OS successfully without having to mess with the BIOS configurations every time. I am beginning to realize this may be a pipe dream with this particular computer. Here's the issue:
In PhoenixBIOS under the advanced tab I see:
I/O Device Configuration
PnP O/S [Yes] or [No] (this seems to make no difference whichever I choose)
Large Disk Access Mode: [DOS] or [OTHER] (this is the one that I must change every time or else. WinXP will not boot if it's set as "other" and Debian will not boot if it's set as "DOS"
Is it impossible to boot to either/or without having to manually adjust every time?
Thanks in advance for any responses
