Help!!! Installed Redhat 7.1 dual boot with XP not working
Posted by VandhiyaThevan

If you have installed Linux after XP installation and if you have chosen the boot loader to be written in MBR, this problem may arise.

If you have chosen lilo as boot loader follow this: [You can verify this by seeing the lilo prompt while booting]
Open the /etc/lilo.conf

Add the following entries

other=/dev/hd[x][y]
label=xp

where x can be a,b,c,d and y is partition number.
For example, If u hv installed XP on Primary Master disk and on partition 2, give it as
other=/dev/hda2

close /etc/lilo.conf
and then run
lilo

It should update the boot record.

After rebooting you will be able to see xp also in the boot menu.

Regards,
VT
