    Re: windows xp gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Julius what command did you run in that first post in order to print out all that information? Sorry, I'm not very good at all that command-line stuff, and I've recently repartitioned my drive so I could throw some XP on there for use with some Chinese programs, and I need to figure out how to more easily switch between the two. Also, could you tell me if starting up Windows from Grub will make it so that Grub is no longer on the MBR? I can't seem to get into Windows without breaking my Ubuntu boot loader. Thanks!

    well, my WinXP is installed on sda2 and I added this to my grub menu.lst:

    Code:
    title                 Windows XP
    root                (hd0,1)
    makeactive
    chainloader    +1
    And I booted into windows without a hitch. It even kept grub in the MBR, much to my elation. Perhaps you have made a minor typographical error?

    ok, one more and then I will leave this alone, since I am not contributing much really.
    Have you tried using VMware? If there is something that you really want to save, you may be able to do it with that. the instructions are here:
