General :: XP Failed To Boot After Adding Red Hat Enterprise System / Resolve This?

Jan 22, 2011

I have a Dell Precision 330 with (the latest) A09 BIOS and 1 TB SATA hard drive. There is a SATA-IDE converter between the SATA HD and the ATA133 cable. The OS was Window XP Professional SP3.

When adding RH Enterprise Linux 6 onto the computer, I created two additional partitions, one 400 GB for Linux's storage and a 10 GB swap space. I chose Window XP as the default OS.

After the installation, when the system started up, I can hit a key to have two optional OS: Window XP and Linux. If I chose Linux, the system would boot up. If I chose Window XP, the boot failed with a message that windowssystem32configsystem was missing or corrupted. I read some articles that the problem can be fixed in window's recovery console with fixboot. After entering the fixboot command and restarting the computer, Window XP still failed to boot with an error message that another file was missing.

I thought I might have made some mistakes in the installation procedure and it would be cleaner to reinstall both OS. So I tried to install Window XP Professional again. Unfortunately, after booting from Window XP CD and formating the MBR and copying the window XP files, the computer can not restart with the installed XP. Instead, the computer boot from Window XP's CD repeatedly. If I remove Window XP's CD, the computer simply can not boot at all.

I began to wonder whether RH's Enterprise Linux made some change on the MBR of the HD that Window XP can not format.

General :: Windows XP Failed To Boot In Dual Boot System?

Jul 5, 2011

The problem is this: I have a 320gb HDD splitted in 4 partitions. When I first installed Windows XP I formatted the HDD in 3 (Windows system partition, Media partition and another one I left for Linux). However Linux requires another partition for swap. Everything was just fine. One day Windows stopped working and I tried re-installing it. After the system was ready to start, Windows failed to boot with "NTLDR is missing" message. I tried to recover the Master boot record, even replaced NTLDR manually - nothing worked. I read that in order a HDD to be partitioned in more than 3 parts the so called "extended" partitions must be created. I think this may cause the problem but I don't want to wipe out everything (I have more than 100 GB of books most of which are not available anymore in the same locations I have downloaded them)

General :: Messed UP Boot Order On Dual Boot

Jun 24, 2011

I am working on another's Dell Inspiron 530 with Vista 64-bit; see below:


wanting a dual-boot, 500GB hdd was formatted as above, Win Vista x64 Recovery CD was created, and antiX-M11 (as Swift Linux 0_1_1) installed. Now, at startup, machine boots to antiX and not Vista. User wants it the other way around. I think I should have reordered the partitions and not installed GRUB in MBR. EasyBCD is the preferred boot loader for User. This is a learning experience but due to time constraints and not being at my home where references are available, EasyBCD is on a USB stick -- should I boot to the Vista Recovery CD and then try to install EasyBCD to sda3 from it, uninstall antiX (but this will not fix the MBR problem, will it?), or edit fstab or what

General :: PC Won't Boot After New Fedora/Win XP Dual Boot Install?

Sep 7, 2009

I have a PC with three HD's. My primary hard drive has a single partition and contains Win XP SP3. I have a second hard drive which I use to store junk (pictures, movies, etc). The third, 60GB HD, I just put into my PC and I wanted to install Fedora 11 onto it. I want to have a dual boot system with WinXP being the default boot. I downloaded the latest build of Fedora 11, created a LiveCD out of it and I tried to install the OS onto this third new hard drive. I installed the OS, I told it to use the entire third HD and to have a dual boot setup and make the WinXP OS be the default boot. The installation seemed to go without any problems. However, after restarting the PC, the PC stops booting right after the DELL screen. It gives me a cursor and that's it. It just sits there. I have tried redoing the install about 4 different times now and no matter how I change the different installation options, I get the same result. Now I can't even boot into XP even after I disconnect the third drive. I am guessing that the dual boot got screwed up; I just don't know how to fix it and more importantly, how to install Fedora, dual boot.

Ubuntu Servers :: Enterprise Cloud Services Not Running On Boot?

May 7, 2010

I downloaded the latest 10.4 server CD with the intention of running a small Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud. I am following the directions here: [URL] Ive got 2 laptops that are capable of the tasks assigned to them. Both have dual core Intel chips that are VT enabled, 4GB of RAM, 250GB hard drives. Ill use one ( "server" ) as the front end server running cc, clc, walrus and sc.The other one ( "node1" ) will be the only node controller on my little network. Ive also got another laptop as a client, running euca commands to make instances and what not.These three laptops are connected to a switch. server is, node1 is going to be, the client laptop is

the server seems to install fine, I select Install Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, use it as the Cluster, give the cluster a name and 10 IPs to assign, After the server is done installing and reboots, I boot the node machine off the CD and again select Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud. It's at this point the install craps out, because it does not recognize a cloud computer on the network.

Indeed, as I go to the server I run


ps -aux | grep euca

and see nothing running. So I start the eucalyptus service, and run


sudo euca_conf --list-clusters

and nothing shows up. Ive done some googling, ran some more euca_conf commands, registering the cluster, enabling walrus, cloud and sc. I can access the web gui on the client laptop, then restart the node install on the node laptop. This time it does see the server as a cluster controller, but when it tries to fetch the preseed file, it seems to not know the cluster's IP, as the red box that complains about the lack of a preseed file lists the URL as [URL] ( or whatever the file is called, I dont have the error in front of me. )

General :: Best Dual Boot ?

Mar 6, 2011

Haven't been browsing for long, so this may have been covered already. I'm sure it's a common question but which distro would you prefer for a dual boot on a laptop, running alongside Vista? I've shrunk my Windows partition and opened a 10GB space for new business. I don't know a lot about different distros but boot Ubuntu 10.10 and XP on my desktop. Would this be the best choice?

Oct 24, 2010

I have an OSS 11.3/WinXPPro dual boot system. Unfortunately, Windows is a mess because of a botched restoration. I guess I need to start again from scratch. I assume if I attempt to reinstall Windoze that the whole dual boot system is going to get botched up anyway.I would like to know what would be the best approach since I am going to start by installing Windoze to the HD. Here is a readout of what I currently have from gparted:

General :: Grub Boot Loader Installation In Dual Boot Machine After Windows 7 Installation?

Mar 23, 2010

I had a dual boot machine with fedora 12 and windows vista and I could use grub boot-loader to switch between two. Few days ago windows got corrupt and I have to reinstall it. I put windows 7 now and as usual it erased grub. So to reinstall I put the fedora 12 installation CD on and followed some usual setup steps. When I got the command line I issued the command "grub-install /dev/sda" (sda not hda because It showed bunch of sda, sda1..) but surprisingly it said grub command not found. I remember doing it before while it worked fine.

General :: Non Destructive Install (dual Boot)

Jun 29, 2010

It's been a while since I last installed a Linux distro on a machine that already houses another OS. I want to install OpenSuse (11.2) on a spare external drive that I have which will be connected to my PC through USB. The PC however, houses four other drives: one drive that has WinXP installed on it (NTFS) which is my normal boot drive, and three data drives - all NTFS.

Like I said, I want to install OpenSuse on the external drive through a network install. I don't want to end up with a boot menu where I can choose between OpenSuse and XP, I simply want to boot from the XP drive by default and boot from the USB drive when I tell my system to do so (I can call up a boot menu where I can tell my PC from which drive to boot).

Now I have done this many times - albeit too long ago to remember how I did it. I do remember however that last time I tried to do it, it installed a boot menu on my XP boot drive, and I had a hell of a time removing it. What do I need to look out for to prevent this from happening? How do I make sure nothing is changed on the other four drives? (The safest way would be to simply disconnect the other four drives from my system and install OpenSuse on the USB drive of course

General :: Virtualize Or Dual Boot For Games?

Feb 7, 2011

In my recent tribulations getting Linux based tools working at work I've gotten a lot of good answers just by searching here. But since this question is very subjective, and details are important, my searches just weren't quite working out.

I've been using Linux off and on since 94, Slackware... a stack of floppies as long as my arm. I say off and on because I've always been of the opinion that Windows had a superior selection of ready-to-run desktop software... I still think that's true, but since I'm pushing open source more at work ($44K a year to use Exchange? Seriously?) I figure it's time to throw in behind it at home, too.

My biggest hangup with a total transition is gaming. I can handle my desktop suite needs just fine with Open/LibreOffice and Seamonkey. The limited work I do with graphics and sound can be handled just as easily with existing open source applications (though I'm not really sure about video playback, yet. Finding good codecs for HD video that work well with Linux based players, WMP and Windows Media Center is kind of a pain in the ass.) Hell, pretty much everything I do on a day to day basis... a drastic improvement over 5 years ago.

The games, on the other hand, are killer. Two of my off and on favorites, World of Warcraft and EVE Online are reportedly well supported by Wine. A good chunk of my game collection, though, was purchased through Steam, which I understand has some issues with Wine. And there's also concerns about future games that get released ... some of which is offset by the constant improvement in Wine and similar packages.

What I'm considering as an option is simply going with Xen for a paravirt Windows guest and running my games in that. What I need to know, though, is how well will that conceivably work? Will a Windows XP or 7 (which one would I want?) guest in a Xen DomU have better gaming support than Wine provides? What other things am I not taking in to consideration that I should? Should I use Xen or whatever the free VMWare is (I'd prefer Xen, open source and all, but it VMWare would really do the job where Xen wouldn't...)?

AMD Phenom X4 955
2TB RAID storage which I would prefer to keep as a single chunk, but meh... it's 2TB.

I have installed CentOS 5.3-5.5, FC 13 and 14. Ubuntu, Debian and., all the major distros and all the hardware is supported by the prebuilt kernels.

Actual uses: MP3 rip/playback. Web browsing. Quicken. Occasional word processing/spreadsheet, media conversion including the dreaded DVD ripping (I buy the DVDs for my kids, but they can't touch them :P), and... hell, whatever it is that we do with our desktops and take for granted. Games. Lots of DirectX games.
