Hi and Welcome !
We have to check Partition Structure of your Hard disk. Boot up CentOS and execute this in Terminal
Post output here.
Ok friend.. first of all thnks for replying....
i vl check the output & vl provide you screen shot of the same asap.. Its at my home pc so vl provide you at the day end.. :)
Did you install XP on the primary partition and Linux on the logical? The dual boot won't work if you did otherwise.
Sorry was some problem.. so not able to touch wid u in last 2 days..
Friend as per your suggestion i run command su -c 'fdisk -l' in my pc & i got attached result.
