    Xandros dual boot problem


    Hi I just installed Xandros open circulation edition on my computer. I have 3 hard drives, two of them are NTFS for windows and the other is dedicated to Linux. At the install of Xandros it detected windows and asked me if I wanted to keep it and I choose yes. I made sure that linux was also going to the right drive. Xandros installed fine and works great, but at the boot loader screen when given the option to pick windows, I pick it and I get nothing but a black screen with a white bar(-) in the upper left hand corner of the screen. Can anyone help me figure out why windows will not boot up?

    post the contents of /boot/grub/device.map and /boot/grub/menu.lst files and output of 'fdisk -l' command. you must have root privileges to execute fdisk command.
    Code:
    cd /boot/grub
    less device.map
    less menu.lst 
    fdisk -l
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
