Booting Windows XP with two IDE drives
I am having trouble booting Windows XP with lilo. Every time I try to load Windows, lilo says it is loading it, but nothing ever happens. Windows is installed on the slave drive, with Slackware 10.1 on the master drive. I have tried the following configuration of lilo:
I also tried appending these lines to it:
Windows is installed on partition hdb1 on device /dev/hdb.
Re: Booting Windows XP with two IDE drives
I may be off the point here but I never had to do that. Being a novice I put winxp on the master, I think its picky.
/dev/hda is my WINXP drive. (primary master)
Cfdisk /devhdb set up swap, root and left some free for my storage.
install windows first then SLack.
I put Lilo on the MBR of the Master, where are you putting lilo? (Root, MBR)
I suggest the SLack Essentials book if you can get it, helped me a lot.
