    Red face two hard drives one windows one kubuntu

    Hi,

    I am new to linux and I am having a problem I don't know if it is the set up, the installation, or because of the 2 OS.

    I have 2 hard drives set up in my tower one has XP, the other had kubuntu. Before I installed kubuntu both hard drives were available for boot prioity now I can only set one of them at a time.

    I was hoping to be able to choose which one I wanted on start up. Also when I restart or shut down in kubuntu the program shuts down, the screen goes black but the pc stays on.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure what you're saying. Do you get the grub screen when you start up? I mean can you select which OS to boot at start up? Or do you have to change the BIOS?

    I get the grub screen only after I set it up to boot from the one hd with linux.

    What about the shut down issue? Have any thoughts on that?

    Thanks

    So, what you're saying is that you have to change boot sequence in BIOS?

    I think you probably need to "map" your drives:

    But I'm just too tired to get into the whole thing right now.

    Hopefully someone else can help you with this.
