Ok, I recently installed a second HD in my system for the purpose of trying different linux OS. I tried Fedora, then openSUSE and finally back to Fedora. Everytime I would partition the new HD and install the new OS. I used gparted. I did like 4 installations in total. In the last installation (Fedora 10) while partitioning I chose "Remove all partitions on selected drives and create default layout", I made sure that I selected HD2(new HD), so I left the original HD untouched. Now I have Fedora and it works nice, but the problem is that I can't boot Windows XP form HD1(original HD).
I tried changing the boot sequence and still doesn't work. If I try to boot from HD1, it goes through the boot process and then comes back with a line saying:
Loading GRUB Stage 1.5
Loading please wait... (or something like that, and then
And that's all.
If I boot from the HD2, it boots fedora and gives me the option to boot 1: Fedora, or 2: Other. Fedora boots fine. If I choose Other, it takes me to a blank with only a blinking cursor at the top.
I checked within Fedora the File Systems under System Monitor and I can see 3 devices as follows:
Device Directory Type Total Free
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 / ext3 456.3GiB 452.6GiB
dev/sda1 /Boot ext3 189.9MiB 176.2MiB
/dev/sdc1 /media/disk fuseblk 232.9GiB 183.3GiB
So, I can see the c drive where windows xp is located (or supposed to be located). The free space on c: is the same as before I installed fedora, if that's of any help.
Also, on the c: drive under Type it says fuseblk and I don't know what that means?? that is advanced for me, I'm a newbie. I've been messing with linux for about only 2 weeks and I have learnt a lot but I'm really a newbie, sorry.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for you time.
