multi boot, grub, PC-BSD, how-to ?
I've searched a lot on google on how to start PC-BSD from grub. But the two most common suggestions don't work.
Here are my Harddisks:
first HDD first partition = WinXP
second HDD first partition = Ubuntu
second HDD first partition = PC-BSD
grub is installed to (hd1)
this is my menu.lst:
selecting WinXP gives this error:
## ## End Default Options ##

selecting PC-BSD gives this error:
Error 22: No such partition Press any key to continue
I also tried (hd1,1,a) and (hd1,1,b) and (hd0,1,a) and (hd0,1,b) for PC-BSD. None of those work.
For WinXP I don't care so much, because I can simply use the BIOS boot menu.
I hope you can help me.
My mainboard is GA-965P-DS3 rev3.3
This board has 2 SATA controllers, one is from Gigabyte and supports RAID, the other is on the Southbridge, from Intel (does not support RAID).
I do not use RAID. I have told my BIOS to treat all drives as IDE (or something like that).
The HDD that holds WinXP is connected to the Gigabyte SATA controller (purple connector on the board).
The HDD that holds Ubuntu and PCBSD is connected to the Intel SATA controller (yellow connector on the board).
When I installed Windows, I noticed that when I choose RAID mode in the BIOS, SATA HDDs connected to the Intel SATA controller are not recognized. So I switched to Legacy IDE mode. In this mode I noticed that my brand new 1TB HDD is not recognized properly when connected to the Gigabyte SATA controller (only recognized 31MB, later, with help of Sea-Tools from Seagate, only 3.51GB). Here, the Intel SATA controller helped me out and properly recognized it as 931GB drive.
I am not sure if this information is relevant for my question.
