Mandrake bootloader.. i screwed up my xp partition?
I attempted installing Mandrake 10.31 COmmunity on my hp pavilion a250n
120 gig hd
512 mb ram
i installed Mandrake on my d: drive (hp recovery drive)
and installed the bootloader on the root partition
heres where the problems start, then i installed it again (not sure why, it was 4 am) and this time chose on MBR, thinking it was the same option.
so i fired up Mandrake, runs great
but when i choose windows in LILO all i get is a blank screen with a blinking cursor and constant short beeps
now i checked the partition manager in the mandrake cd and my c: partition shows up: ntfs, mnt/windows , c: drive
the problem is i cant see if its just my mbr bc i never got an xp disc, is there any way i can fix this?
i asked around and was told to post here and to say that the bootloader messed up my xp partition mapping..
any help is great!
