Booting from SDHC
So I'm new to Linux and tried several different flavors via VMware, and decided Ubuntu was the best Linux distro for me.
Decided to try the new netbook edition on my Eee pc 1201. Had a bunch of SD cards lying around, so booted up the live USB version then installed it on a 4GB SDHC card (tried EasyPeasy first, but Ubuntu netbook edition's iso is smaller and they seem to be the same thing). It's an amazing OS, but a little slow because I'm running it off of an SD card.
I'm new to Grub since I previously only installed Linux onto a virtual machine. After all the rigmarole of booting via SD/USB on the Eee pc, I couldn't boot back into XP. The Grub screen would come up no matter what and not give me the option to get into XP. After searching the internet and forums, I repaired the MBR and now XP is fine. But now I can't boot into the Ubuntu on my SD card, I just get the blank screen and cursor.
So, I want my netbook to automatically boot into XP normally, but I want to choose to boot into Ubuntu by pressing ESC during startup. Is there any way to do this and is my Ubuntu install on the SD okay or do I have to do it again?
If it's of any use, my machine is Eee PC 1201HAB, 1.33Ghz, 2GB. Thanks, everybody!
