- 11-25-2007 #13And I am having a weird problem. I go through the steps to install on the partition and it copies all the files and several minutes go by and I guess it finishes up because the installer closes.

I didn't boot it because it didn't install. No errors either.

Well I finally got Grub installed.
Except that it was all messed up. It let me boot linux, but not windows. I had to force it to find the Windows kernel in the command line. Something I don't want to have to do every time I boot my system.
Then all of a sudden Linux wouldn't boot. Out of the blue it would stall during the boot... The only distribution I got working was Puppy linux and it ended up having the problems I just listed.

God damn, finally...
PCLinuxOS installed finally worked and didn't quit during install. I was able to get it working now. It boots beautifully into Windows XP (default) and PCLinuxOS.
