I've recently decided to install a new distro on my laptop, and I would like this distro to work as a dual boot with Windows just like it did previously. I chose Fedora Core 3, but after the install, GRUB does seem to be working properly.
I can boot Fedora just fine, but when trying to boot windows, it hangs.
My partition table looks as follows:
At first hand, I can't really see anything wrong with it.Code:
[root@Knoppix ~]# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/hda: 60.0 Gb, 60011642880 byte
225 hoveder, 63 sektorer/spor, 8268 cylindre
Enheder = cylindre af 14175 * 512 = 7257600 byte
Enhed Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 4334 30716248+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2 4334 6302 13944672 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda3 6303 8180 13301820 83 Linux

/dev/hda5 4334 6302 13944388+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
My grub.conf file looks as follows:
I've tried several things such as adding "makeactive" to the grub.conf file, but nothing has worked so far.Code:
GNU nano 1.2.4 Fil: /boot/grub/grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,2)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title Windows XP Professional
Please help me out. I'm completely green, and really want to get to all my old file, which are of course on the first NTFS partition.
