Pl. give more details whether you got installed grub on MBR of sda or failed.
Grub screen appearing while booting.
otherwise reinstall grub boot in rescue mode and install grub post error report.

Hello nadvi,

Since you chose to install GRUB in the first sector of the Fedora boot partition, and since you are talking about NTLoader and boot.ini, I think you are asking how to dual boot using the Windows boot loader. No? Windows NT, 2000, XP, and Server 2003 all use NTLoader and the same associated files (ntldr, ntdetect.com, boot.ini). If I guessed correctly about your intentions, one way to do it is with the free utility BOOTPART. After you take a few minutes to teach yourself how to use BOOTPART (http://forum.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=158078), it can do everything needed in one step. If I guessed wrongly, no harm done.
