I have two drives one with XP and another with Ubuntu 9.10. Now i'm trying to dual boot from them. I found a way to do it but i'm stuck on something.
I already did all this but when I turn reboot my comp it loads straight to Ubuntu. All I see is Grub loading flash real quick and loads. Did I do something wrong?
You will need to edit your menu.lst file:
(Open a terminal, copy & paste one line at a time, press "enter" each time)
sudo cp menu.lst menu.lst_backup
gksudo gedit menu.lst
The first line changes to the grub directory, the second line makes a backup of your menu.lst file, and the third line opens the menu.lst file using the gedit text editor.
Copy and paste the following lines above the line
###BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNEL LIST
title Windows XP
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
Now when I first did this I actually entered the number 1 instead of L. Not sure if this causes the problem. I already went back and did it correctly.
sudo cp menu.1st menu.1st_backup
gksudo gedit menu.1st
