Hi all.

I have Windows XP installed on one disk and I want to install Fedora 6 on a 2nd empty hard disk and have them dual boot.

I have installed Fedora to the 2nd disk but when I get to the Grub bootloader I end up only seeing Fedora and no windows XP option.

Can anyone tell where I might have gone wrong.


I have just erased the whole linux OS from disk 2, so I have now:

Disk1: XP
Disk2: empty - waiting for Fedora Installation.

Most likely the bootloader (GRUB) was installed on the second disk or it missed your Windows Disk when scanning for others OS's. Grub should be installed on hda0,0.
