Got my dual boot working, have a few questions about GRUB
Well for some stressfull fun last night i thought i would try installing LINUX( KNOPPIX) on 1 of my many harddrives that also hold many XP installations.
After install, i was able to boot both KNOPPIX and multiple XP's.
Then i said that was too easy, i need more stress, so i installed UBUNTU in place of KNOPPIX, chose to NOT install boot loader, i figured that GRUB was already installed, i wouldnt need to install it again. So after reboot, GRUB gives me an error. Cant load anything..... GREAT!!!! STRESS!!! So i re installed UBUNTU AND the boot loader option, and now everything works again!!!
I have GRUB installed on the MBR. It gives me options to load UBUNTU and also WINDOWS XP. But when i choose XP, it then goes to the WINDOWS BOOT LOADER, and from there i select which installation of XP i want to load. I would just like someone to try and explain what is happening here so that i can understand the process better. I thought that when i pick XP in the GRUB menu that it should just start loading XP right there, i dont know why i have to go through the WINDOWS BOOT LOADER as well. Is it possible to edit the GRUB config so that it will just load XP instead of it passing off to the second boot loader??
Im really scared of messing things up and not being able to load xp again, but this GRUB loader seems very interesting! Just hard to understand some things....
Hope this makes sense.
