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

Red Hat is using GRUB instead of LILO.

To add Windows XP to the bootmenu:
Open /etc/grub.conf (as root) in your favorite editor and add the follow:
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1


Here an example grub.conf:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,2)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda4
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=1
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,2)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-4)
root (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-4 ro root=/dev/hda4 hdd=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-4.img
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
