i have a dual boot system red hat and xp on different partition. redhat is always loaded as default. the xp was infected by a virus which made me format the ntfs window partition.


1. I couldnt start redhat any longer
2. when formating the window partition, it did strike me that linux os is not hilighted in any partition
3. no option of dual boot again
4. where can i get step-by-step precedure on redhat installation

any other recommendation on linux -xp dual boot

Yours in Linuxing,

Hi SoSe.

You didnt mention if you are using grub or LILO. Here are the steps for restoring grub. I am not sure about LILO

Boot your system with linux rescue cd/dvd, on prompt type 'linux rescue' and run grub command

Remember that for grub (hd0,1) means hda (primary controller master), second partition.

Now we need to tell grub where are the grub files:

If you know where they are, type something like:

#root (hd0,1)

else if you have no idea, type:

#find /boot/grub/stage1

and then the root command with the correct parameters:

#setup (hd0)

to install it on hd0, that is MBR of the first HD.



and reboot.

The menu will appear again.
