Re: OS unable to boot, pls help!
Sounds like the drive is bad to me. My old hard drive would give me a "low virtual memory" message when I only had like 33 proccesses running and I have 1.5GB RAM. I thought it was odd but then again, that hard drive wasn't the greatest. Your hard drive does seem to be going bad in my opinion. If you have an older, decent one you could try using that with FC5 and save up for a new one for windows and then just use two drives instead of a dual boot...
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
