I wanted to set up KnoppMyth (R5D1) to dual boot with Windows XP. I have XP installed on my 60Gb primary master and followed the manual install procedures on the KnoppMythWiki site to install KnoppMyth onto my 80Gb primary slave.
However, I reached an impasse. Once the files had finished copying to hdb1, I rebooted, but was faced with a flashing cursor where Lilo was meant to appear. I'd heard elsewhere that by running the following was supposed to fix the issue:
# mount -o rw,dev /dev/hdb1
# chroot /mnt/hdb1
# lilo -v
This gave an error, saying it didn't like something on line 2. When I looked, line 2 was referring to /dev/hda, so I commented this out and ran the 'lilo -v' command again.
This time, it ran, and gave me the following:
Reading boot sector from /dev/hda1
Warning: '/proc/partitions' does not exist, disk scan bypassed
Warning: partition type 0x07 on device 0x0301 is a dangerous place for
a boot sector.
This is the point I'm at. Is this normal, and should I go ahead with it? I'm obviously err'ing on the side of caution here as I don't want to lose my Windows installation. Any pointers would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Sorted this. Changed the /dev/hda1 line to /dev/hda.
