    Mandrake 10.1 and Solaris 10 PBR


    I used to use this URL to install windows and Linux and Solaris without any problem on more than 10 PCs (not only one)

    http://multiboot.solaris-x86.org/v/2.html

    Now I have got on one of my PC with small HD (15GB), then I tried to install Linux Mandrake 10.1 official,and Solaris 10, without installing windows.

    I partitioned the HD as:

    1- 500 MB for /boot (Primary)
    2- 7 GB for Solaris (Primary)
    3- 7 GB fro Linux (Extended)

    I followed the instruction of the link above, except I have not installed windows.

    I installed Linux First and I use LILO as bootloader (on MBR).Then I installed Solaris later (I followed the instruction).

    With Solaris bootmanager I can see Linux, but when I try to boot Linux it give me this error message:

    "Bad PBR sig" = Bad Primary Boot Record

    I can boot Solaris with out any problem.

    What should I do to fix this problem.
