View Full Version : FC6 WinXP HDD

21st November 2006, 10:39 PM
I have 2 HDD in my computer. The only way I could sus out dual booting was to install FC6 and XP on different disks and change which to boot from in the BIOS. One disk is on IDE and the other is SATA. I can't get XP to see the FC6 disk and can't get FC6 to see the XP disk. Although XP does see a removable disk but if I click on it a message says "Please insert a disk into drive H".

Please help :confused:

Windows won't be able to access it if you chose the default installation.
If you happened to use ext2 or ext3 for your partitions then Windows can read it with this driver.
Install it then you can set the drive from Control Panel > Other Control Panel Options, but again not if you just did a default installation.

As far as fedora open a terminal and type su - then hit enter, enter your pass and then type fdisk -ls if that doesn't work for you type /sbin/fdisk -ls and post the output so someone can help you.
You also need to install the ntfs driver so type yum install ntfs-3g -y in a terminal.
