Lilo xp Bt dual boot
I know that this question has been asked and answered a 1000 times already and believe me i have done all these solution but nothing has actually worked
I had on 40gb hard disk with win xp on it,no partions no nothing,
I used partion magic to break them into two 20 gb and installed BT on the other partion (hda2)
Now all the windows files are in (hda1) i can see them using konquer but i am not getting a boot option in the boot screen......all i see is slax...
I tried all the tuts and help files..but nothing really worked
Could you help me you please?
If you need any more info or screen shots...please let me know.
Run liloconfig and follow the step-by-step to re-installing the bootloader to include your Windows install as well as the BT install.
There's an "automatic" option, but I haven't used that since I don't know when....
If you take the "expert" setup menu, you can point lilo at the MBR, choose a boot screen time-out, and then choose to add a Linux install, by pointing it at wherever you installed BT. Possibly sda2, for example? Next, give the entry a name.
Next, choose to add a Windows entry, point it at wherever you have Windows installed, possibly sda1, for example. Give the entry a name.
Now choose to "install" Lilo.
It's simpler than it sounds to explain ;)
If thats doesnt work open your lilo file
and add these lines at the bottom
other = /dev/sda1(or whatever it is)
label = winblowsxp
table = /dev/sda
then hit "control" ans the "x" key
say y for yes
then at the prompt enter
it will say windows loaded and backtrack loaded
