    Dual boot Win XP 12.04 Boot Repair partially successful

    Following a fresh install of 12.04 on a dual HDD dual boot system first boot brought up Grub Rescue.

    I installed Boot Repair in a live CD and ran the recommended repair. Boot Repair indicated a successful repair.

    Upon reboot there is no entry for Win XP.

    Gparted shows sda as full as it was before installing 12.04. Nautilus shows Win XP files intact.

    I don't think this is a hardware problem. This dual HDD, dual boot system has successfully booted grub under 10.10, 10.04 and 11.10.

    Boot Repair produced the URL http://paste.ubuntu.com/996608

    Have you run in Ubuntu?

    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    This should add XP to the grub menu.
