Booting 'Windows at hda1'
So I played around with /boot/grub/menu.lst to no avail. This is my partition info:
Number Partition Type Status Usage
01 /dev/hda1 ntfs Active Windows XP
02 /dev/hda2 ext3 Linux mount
03 /dev/hda3 linux-swap Linux Swap
04 /dev/hda4 ext3 Linux Home
What am I missing?
In the end, I was concerned that, since I would inevitably need to reinstall Windows, I would run into drive formatting issues. I ended up buying a used box to install Linux on. Another strategy would be to install a second drive and put Linux there.
Never fear -- this problem can be solved and you're not that far away from the solution!
