I have done the "Real Install to Hardrive" of BackTrack2 but after installation I cant' boot onto BT, it just boots into WinXP as usual. Thats when the partition with WinXP was set to active and when the partition with BT is set to active i'm getting this error and the boot process gets stuck.
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-061: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM
Is setting the partition with BT as active necessary??
Also I tried editting the lilo.conf file using the live cd as:
boot = /dev/hda
timeout = 4000
vga = 773
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda2
initrd = /boot/splash.initrd
label = BackTrack2
other = dev/hda1
label = Windows XP
table = /dev/hda
default = Windows XP
After that I used the command:
chroot /mnt/hda2/ /bin/bash
and then tried entering lilo into the console but I'm getting the error:
Warning: LBA32 addressing assumed
Fatal: raid_setup: stat("/dev/hda")
Also my parition with BT is after the partition containing XP, but does that make a difference?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!
The problem is that i'm not booting onto BT2 after its installation.
