grub won't boot Windows XP.
I just installed Debian "sarge" dual booting with Windows XP Home Edition.
My bootloader is GRUB, but I didn't install it to the MBR. Now Debian boots just fine, but Windows refuses to load. when I select it from the list, it just says:
which, byt the way, is what's written in /boot/grub/menu.lst
I've changed rootnoverify to root, but that just makes it say "unknown file system" before it hangs.
Could this be caused by a bad bootsector on the windows partition? I recently had to fix it (It was listed sometimes as FAT12, sometimes FAT16, and sometimes NTFS.)
It worked for me (menu.lst to boot XP)
Thanks, your menu.lst entry did allow me to boot XP, Not sure why the map statements are needed, however.
map (hd0,0) (hd0,2)
map (hd0,2) (hd0,0)
