Hi all,

I have dual booted configuration with Fedora 12 and Windows XP running. I have reinstalled Fedora 12 yesterday as something (I don't know) gone wrong and I was not able to login into either Fedora or Windows. While installing Fedora 12 has taken a full free partition (with 100 GB) as logical volume for root, which I haven't noticed at that time.

After installation, I had logged into Windows network, where a Found new Hardware wizard for generic volume keeps on popping up. It's really annoying to have it popped up again and again. Kindly let me know whether this popup can be avoided.

My experience is that Windows requires a reboot...after any partitions/drives have been added. After that, there should be no notification of new hardware.

The creation of a new partition is seen by XP as a new piece of hardware.
