Hello,

I had a perfectly fine FC4 and WinXP dual boot configuration on a single disk on my toshiba laptop.

I upgraded to FC5 using all default options and now windows wont boot at all!!! The ntfs partition is still there.

Here is the output of fdisk-l:
/dev/hda1 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 * 955 1296 50942083+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda3 14 954 7558582 8e Linux LW

and grub.conf

#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/gr...
hiddenmenu
title fedora core...
root (hd0,0)
kernel....
initrd...
title other
rootnoverify(hd0,1)
chainloader +1



I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction?

Was this an upgrade installation, or a fresh installation? Folks tend to use "upgrade" to mean different things.

Did you cut and paste your Grub.conf file, or hand transcribe it? I see a couple of problems with it.

There should be a space between rootnoverify and (hd0,1)

Do you get any errors when trying to boot Windows, a "grub" cursor hang, or just a hang with no output?
