View Full Version : laptop boot AMD64
25th April 2004, 12:59 AM
Hi to everybody!
I am kind of new in this things and I was trying to install Fedora 64 bit on my new laptop, this has amd64 processor.
The question is... when I install fedora and Grub conf is shown, I didn't see the label for the partion of windows xp, I had it previously installed and running but now I cannot access to it...
Does anybody know why grub missed Windows xp partition?
Thanks in advance

you can create the XP entry in grub config manually, i'm also using Fedora 64 on my laptop( emachine )

Grub/Anaconda (graphical install) does not generally configure the boot devices when configuring grub. Try adding an entry to your /etc/grub.conf file that looks something like this: title Win2K MainDrive
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
Although change your hd# and partition to the correct numbers (depending on your slave master/partition arrangement)

thanks for the help,
I went into /boot/grub/grub.conf and
added manually the information about the partition and now I can again log in to the windows box.
