Description of problem:
Sometime during installation of Fedora Core 2, a separate Windows 2000
disk is made unbootable. Some change is apparently made to the disk. I
swapped back in my Fedora Core 1 Disk which booted the Windows 2000
disk prior to the install, and it had the same results. I don't know
if the problem lies in Disk Druid, or elsewhere during the install.
I booted Win2K from hdb with
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
switching prior to the install with no problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Windows 2000.
2. Install Additional Disk, with Win2K on hdb and configure grub
3. Install Fedora Core 2 to first disk
Actual Results: Windows 2000 does not boot
Expected Results: Windows 2000 Should have booted
Reinstalls of both FC2 and Win2K would not fix the disk.
Problem resolved by using the Gentoo 1.2 Boot disk, and using fdisk to
remove partitions from the disk, then reinstalling win2k. And yes, I
did try to repair the mbr.
