    OK. I got rid of those ridiculous number of partitions. I reinstalled ubuntu. Now, the booting and logging in takes less than 50s.

    Thanks to drs305 and unutbu for replying back.
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Repartitioning and install of dual boot - Comments please!

    I installed Ubuntu on the first partition. But while installing XP if I select the second partition, it won't let me install as it has to write some startup files and it can't(attachment). In short,...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Repartitioning and install of dual boot - Comments please!

    I created these partitions a long time back. I think it had to do with a partition manager, which wouldn't let me add that chuck.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Repartitioning and install of dual boot - Comments please!

    This is what I have currently. I am going to reuse it. root (hd0,1) - means to load from 2nd partition. Am I right? I guess I should be able to get it done by trial and error once grub is ready.

    dumb me! I got it wrong.

    I did hit Esc while booting. May be the text interface is shown only after fsck has started. I mean, I see the fancy ubuntu logo and the thin progress bar and the...

    What if I do a fresh install of ubuntu and windows after repartitioning with just 2 partitions? Will it solve those "discrepancies"?

    I tried Esc key, but it only typed '^[' on screen. dosfsck took it's own time.
