First time user of Linux.
80 G HD
Trying to have Dual boot with XP and F9.
I tried to install F9 in remaining 20G after all the XP partitions with "custom partitions" several times, all replied" Could not allocate cylinder-based partition". Then I tried "let Linux manage the free space" and F9 is installed successfully.
Restart. Able to load XP from GRUB(Bravo!). Then when I choose to load F9 from GRUB, doesnt work. It went like this,
Then something like" Press I to interactive start...
Then screen goes black and halt, monitor goes into energy saving mode.
Anyone able to help? Much appreciation!
