Dual Booting Windows Vista and Fedora 11
I had a fresh copy of Windows Vista installed (original from the factory)- and I followed a document of dual booting - however I think I did some mistake or automatic skip of install Grub boot loader-
Now my fedora 11 is running smoothly but windows vista is gone or does not boot - I don't have any boot disks- they give examples having floppy disk a boot disk- my laptop doesn't have floppy drive- I guess I could manage in cd or flash drive.
I see my computer's config in fedora desktop as
I noticed that the partition NTFS still exists and it has not been erased. I did install linux on hda5 since hda1 was partitioned with NTFS
Is there any manual and precaution to be taken while doing the same dual boot system ?
Or is it possible to have dual boot with the present config- although i am ready to install fresh window vista and fedora as my dual booting systems...
Dual Booting Window Vista and Fedora 11
I wonder what could be the reason? The following script on menu.lst, is not enough to boot Windows Vista- however- the fedora is booting smoothly. Thank you for any suggestion in advance-
[root@localhost grub]# cat menu.lst
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,2)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora (126.96.36.199-167.fc11.i686.PAE)
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-167.fc11.i686.PAE ro root=/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root rhgb quiet
