Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 204541
Install with 2 preexisting Windows partitions, only one setup in grub...
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
Installing FC5 onto a Compaq PC:
The drive is factory setup with 2 bootable partitions:
first partition: FAT32 'recovery system'
second partition: NTFS 'default XP' system.
Installing FC5 after the above 2 partitions produces a grub.conf with only the
first partition as an "Other" boot option. [Booting systems 'recovers XP', that
it, it rewrites the MBR, etc.]
Shouldn't anaconda/grub produce a grub.conf with both bootable windows partitions?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Unfortunately, _most_ Windows partitions appear bootable and so we only do the
first one. Otherwise, we hit problems where we set up lots of unbootable

Installing Ubuntu on same system setup grub with both Windows partitions, so I
could choose between them.
Hadn't thought about the unbootable partitions.... No problem leaving this CANTFIX.
