I thought I would post this in case it can be useful to another newb.

I recently used QTParted to add some physical space on my drive to install BT3.

After successfully installing BT3, I realized lilo (boot loader) was not recognizing my original Vista partition. I only had the option to boot into BT3.

The following is what I did to fix it.

At the terminal type: kwrite \etc\lilo.conf


boot = /dev/sda
prompt
timeout = 60
#bitmap=/boot/splash.bmp
change-rules
reset
#vga = 769,771/773/792
vga = 769
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = current
label = BackTrack
read-only


and add the following line at the end

other= /dev/sda2
label = Windows Vista


Save the lilo.conf

In a terminal window type: lilo

It should rebuild with your new config. When you restart you should see the option to boot into both OS's.

Hope this helps!
