View Full Version : [ubuntu] Karmic boots; xp won't

I installed Karmic on a newly formatted hd. Xp is on another. When I boot, KK comes with no problem. But, I get and error 13 when I try to access xp.

Here is the result of the boot info script. Thanks to whoever tackles this.

## ## Start Default Options ##
## default kernel options
## default kernel options for automagic boot options
## If you want special options for specific kernels use kopt_x_y_z
## where x.y.z is kernel version. Minor versions can be omitted.
## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
## kopt_2_6_8=root=/dev/hdc1 ro
## kopt_2_6_8_2_686=root=/dev/hdc2 ro
# kopt=root=UUID=ea762c23-0bb0-4e49-9515-d19fa30e6c52 ro

## default grub root device
## e.g. groot=(hd0,0)
# groot=ea762c23-0bb0-4e49-9515-d19fa30e6c52

## should update-grub create alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. alternative=true
## alternative=false
# alternative=true

## should update-grub lock alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. lockalternative=true
## lockalternative=false
# lockalternative=false

## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the
## alternatives
## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5
# defoptions=quiet splash

## should update-grub lock old automagic boot options
## e.g. lockold=false
## lockold=true
# lockold=false

## Xen hypervisor options to use with the default Xen boot option
# xenhopt=

## Xen Linux kernel options to use with the default Xen boot option
# xenkopt=console=tty0

## altoption boot targets option
## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
## altoptions=(recovery) single
# altoptions=(recovery mode) single

## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the
## alternative kernel options
## e.g. howmany=all
## howmany=7
# howmany=all

## specify if running in Xen domU or have grub detect automatically
## update-grub will ignore non-xen kernels when running in domU and vice versa
## e.g. indomU=detect
## indomU=true
## indomU=false
# indomU=detect

## should update-grub create memtest86 boot option
## e.g. memtest86=true
## memtest86=false
# memtest86=true

## should update-grub adjust the value of the default booted system
## can be true or false
# updatedefaultentry=false

## should update-grub add savedefault to the default options

I would check in BIOS and make sure the 80 GB disk is set to boot second in the hard disk boot order. From the error 13 it would appear that the 1 TB disk is set to boot second.

You want your hard disks to boot in this order:

1. 320 GB sda
2. 80 GB sdb
3. 1 TB sdc

Thanks a million for the help. I see that you have done that for a lot of others as well. That makes you one of the good guys. Much obliged.
