Dual booting Suse and XP with windows bootloader
I'm trying to get Suse 10.1 to dualboot with XP. I can do this no problem with grub, but I need it to load from the XP bootloader... Simple... or so I thought.
I have 1 HDD so I split into partitions. I installed XP on the 1st partition, and suse on sda5 to sda7... I ended up with the following partition setup.
/dev/sda1 ==> XP (NTFS) (primary & bootable)
/dev/sda2 ==> Clean (Fat32) (primary)
/dev/sda5 ==> Linux (Swap)
/dev/sda6 ==> Linux (reiser ==> /)
/dev/sda7 ==> Linux (reiser ==> /home )
I installed grub on /dev/sda6, ran "dd if=/dev/sda6 of=/linux.bin bs=512count=1", and copied linux.bin to the windows root partition. I then added the following line to boot.ini: "c:\linux.bin" = "Suse Linux 10.1"
I thought that would be it... but Nooooo... that would be to easy!! After rebooting the Windows selection works, but when I select Suse I get en error message and the system reboots:
"Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware. Please check the Windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional information."
