[ILUG-BOM] RH Linux not overwriting MBR.
Wed Jul 17 23:59:03 IST 2002
Have 2 HDDs:
Master: 4 Gb [hda]
Slave: 32 Gb [hdb] (is 40 Gb, but my BIOS treats it as 32 Gb)
Windows C: on hda. It has 2 more windows partitions.
For hdb the partitions are as follows:
hdb1 - Windows
hdb5, hdb6.... <10 partitions>. All Windows.
hdb3 - Linux native, mount point / - 10Gb
hdb4 - Linux swap - 200 Mb
It goes through the entire installation process, and asks me to
reboot. But then directly boots into Windows. Tried Lilo & Grub. I
explicitly asked to overwrite MBR during installation.
Haven't tried with boot disk. Damn those floppies. All turned up
with bad sectors :)
Tried RH Linux 7.2 & 5.0.
Any way out?
