Now wat i hav to do to fix this problem. i searched in google, bt cant find the right soln. pls help
IF you have a MS XP sp2 cd then there is no problem. You may need to enter bios setup and change the boot order to CD befor the hdd.
If the XP cd does not have sp2 or it is a restore cd, then it is more of a problem. We will need to know if more help is needed.
if i use MY XP SP2 CD, my cd is getting detected. but it stops on "SETUP IS INSPECTING YOUR HARDWARE". not going beyond tat. i hav tried morethan 3 different cd's.
REDHAT LINUX is totally dfferent. i hav already tried the option u said
Windows Installation CD do not work after Linux installation in a few machine.
Download SuperGRUB .iso CD image (version 0.9598), burn it to CD and boot up from it. Select 'Fix Windows Boot Loader' option. It will remove GRUB and Windows Installation CD will work fine after that.
You have to re-install GRUB after Windows OS installation. You can do that using SuperGRUB CD easily.
thanks buddy. i ll try it. bt now i hav only REDHAT workin in my system . am new to this OS. I don know hoe to burn a image into cd in REDHAT
Which Desktop Environment are you using?
K3B is available in KDE and Gnome has CD Burner package too.
am using GNOME environment
Try using a boot CD such as Diamond Boot to ghost the partition back in... if you have back ups created this shouldn't be too hard. Diamond Boot also has many disk/partition repair utilities that may be able to save your Windows installation.
No clear soln i got til now. pls help
