    Use this in menu.lst:

    title Dell Utility
    root (hd1,0)
    map (hd0) (hd1)
    map (hd1) (hd0)
    chainloader +1

    But I'm not sure that it will work.

    Re: Ubuntu doesn't boot after install

    I don't know what happened. Everything was working fine, but now when I try to boot into Windows XP (the new one on (hd0,0)) it starts bootong and then reboots. Next time I try to boot into it it says that an error was encountered starting windows last time and asks if I want to start in safe mode. Could this have anything to do with the fact that I installed Wine in Ubuntu and temporarily configured it to use that partition as the C drive? I un-installed wine now in case that had something to do with it, but I don't expect this to help. Now how do I diagnose this problem (the same thing happened trying to boot in safe mode... a few lines of log and then it reboots to Grub).

    I tried rebooting again and it looks like the last line that was displayed in safe mode before rebooting had something to do with agp440.sys (it was only there for half a second so I couldn't see it very well)

    Sorry, I know nothing about that. I suggest to start a new thread .

    P.S. I just edited my post on the "Dell Utility" partition. I must have been sleeping, when I wrote that 2 weeks ago.
