Very strang program that grub. What type of compression agolithum is using?
Would that be the Grand Unified Nutualization Conpression aka GUNC?
There must a 100,000 web pages discribing dual;booting and mosdt of them are absolete.
One M/S is syas, Windows dual booted system must be installed in oldest to newest last (with multuly exuctive sets and non inclusive versions on a drive)
It says in about 200 places NTFS for Windows XP must be installed last.
It says, no one can sahare the XP NTFS SYSTEM MBR with XP NTFS.
(SYTEM and BOOT partions are the opposite in Windows than Linix (Unix).
It says, you must create a boot record of exactly 512 bytes and save it somewhere in the sky, Install Grub on someplace between partions, on a partion, under an old oak tree (clear as mud), then install Linux and it will record Linux in grub. Then you reboot and there is Grub and linux bit no windows.
You must then brew up a magic vitual boot up system for windows (a slipped stream start up cd and a grub floppy will do it), Read the 512 byte record from the floppy with the opps, can't use a floopy from the startup CD for windows XP in Repair Console mode. Well I give up, but I know that 512 byte record is out there in the sky somewhere because everyother expect FAT user swears they do it all the time.
