I ended up by installing Ubuntu's Grub to the same place I had PCLinuxOS's Grub. It detected PCLinuxOS and includes both in a menu. I was never able to chain to Ubunut on a second disk from EasyBCD, which is the same problem as when I originally installed PCLinuxOS on a second drive.
I told Ubuntu to install Grub to the first ext3 partition on D:\. PCLinuxOS is installed to the first ext3 on C:\.
I had heard from someone else that I should install Ubuntu's Grub to the first ext3 on C:\, which is where PCLinuxOS is as well, so Grub would include both distros in a single...
Thanks for the very quick response! I just finished the Ubuntu install on the second disk and used EasyBCD to create an entry to the first ext3 partition, much as I did with PCLinuxOS on the first C:\) disk. It didn't work; it points to PCLinuxOS and loads that, no matter what I do. I've...
I'd like to take this one step further, now that I've lived with my triple boot system for a few weeks and it's working just fine, thank you.
I want to quadruple boot! I'd like to add Ubuntu 8.04 to my system (please see very first post for my configuration). I created a 30 GB unallocated...
I got it to work by creating an unallocated partition on the first drive (C:\), installing PCLinuxOS to the first ext3 partition, then using EasyBCD to point to that. It worked out easily.
The only tricky part is downsizing the Windows XP partition because there are files in the way. One has...
After doing some more reading, I'm thinking the solution raised in this post might help:
I have an HP system, too. It might help if I put the Linux installation on the very first drive. I'll shrink the XP partition and see if that works....
I tried that. It eventually gets me to a GRUB4DOS 0.4.3 screen with these selections:
Selecting linux gets me to this error screen:
Kernal (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinuz BOOT_IMAGE=linux root=/dev/sdb5 acpi=on splash=silent vga=788
Error 27: No Such Partition
I'm trying to add PCLinuxOS to what was a dual boot XP-Vista system, and it hasn't been at all simple.
This is my HD configuration:
C:\ (XP) - this is where the boot files are. Drive 0
D:\ (Vista) - seen as Drive 2
F:\ (Data) - seen as Drive 1
This is how it went:
1. I created 20 GB of...
I am currently dual booting XP and Vista, using EasyBCD to set things up. Now, I would like to do the Hardy Heron install within XP using WUBI. I've seen the Ubuntu Wiki and but it doesn't address this particular configuration. How should I go about setting up a smooth triple...
Thanks for the very quick replies, guys.
Regarding easyBCD, all I need to do is uninstall VistaBootPro, and install easyBCD, correct? No other modifications necessary after that through easyBCD?
Thanks for the quick support.
Is this the right forum for an iReboot question?
I love the concept and want to install it. However, I originally set up (or should I say modified) my dual-boot XP-Vista system with VistaBootPro (forgive the sacrilege!) before I became aware of easyBCD.
Anyway, the description of...
