Problems with dual HDD's: Fedora Core 4 + WinXP
Hello everyone :)
OK, here's my setup:-
HDD 1: 190GB SATA-II (NTFS/WinXP Home SP2)
HDD 2: 180GB PATA/UDMA 5 (Linux)
So I formatted HDD 2/installed FC4. Problem is, unless the SATA drive is disabled in BIOS (or indeed unplugged) the GRUB bootloader doesn't execute after installation. I can set to boot from the PATA drive first in BIOS, but on selecting WinXP from the bootloader's list, Windows will not boot...
Are there known isues with SATA/SATA-II in Fedora Core 4? Is it worth trying another distro when the problem could lie elsewhere; is it worth reformatting HDD 1/reinstalling Windows* and starting from scratch?
Thanks in advance.
*Yes, I installed Windows first to begin with BTW
