Fedora and Windows on two hard drives. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
I have tried installing Fedora Core 2 eight times now without success. :evil:
My system looks like this:
HD0/hda, the master = Windows XP
HD1/hdb, the slave = Fedora Core 2
I have tried using LBA (both set in BIOS and also in the Fedora install), tried setting the exact specifications of my hard drive (lynix hdb=59582,16,63), etc. Each time I install I have selected to place the boot onto /dev/hdb1 First Secore of boot partition because I DO NOT TRUST this thing to place it on hda (overlaying the MBR).
What happens is that when I set the BIOS to boot from HD1 all I get is the word GRUB showing up. No command prompt, just the word GRUB. I can always boot to WindowsXP just fine if I set the BIOS to boot to hda (hd0).
It does take keyboard input because I can use ctrl-alt-delete to reboot, but no keys are echoed to the screen.
So, is it even possible to run Fedora on a slave drive with GRUB on that same drive and simply select the hard drive to boot to from within the BIOS? :?
Note that I have built a Fedora Resuce CD if that is needed.
