Triple boot xp, backtrack, ubuntu Windows xp crashes
Hi this is my first post and I'm pulling my hair out please help lol
Ok then my problem is I was running xp on my laptop and I wanted to put ubuntu 10.10 and backtrack r1 on so I check a few forums a seen it's best to start with backtrack as ubuntus grub is automatic so this is what I did:
I ran backtrack live cd
Set up partitions with gparted as followed
Sda1 windows xp
Sda2 black space (ext2)
Sda3 blank space (ext2)
No swap as my ram is 3gb and I believe it's not needed
Then installed backtrack to sda2 with 20gb hdd partition
All worked fine checked by booting up backtrack (never checked xp but maybe I should of).
Then started ubuntu live cd and installed to sda3 (selecting whole partition option)
Rebooted grub loads up and I could boot in to ubuntu 10.10
Rebooted and checked backtrack r1 again and that worked
Now my problem is when I try and boot in to windows xp it just hangs after the first windows load up screen and reboots this will loop as many times as I pick windows. I know I can get windows back with fixboot and fixmbr in recovery but this will mess up my grub and is only a last option when I have to try again.
As a side note I have a feeling all my mbr's are on sda or hd0 but I'm not sure and don't really know how to check but if someone will guide me through it step by step I will be grateful.
Lol sorry to be a pain and have my first post as 1 to be flamed at lol
