I'm setting up a friends PC with both Win XP and BLAG 90K. I setup XP first, in 200GB of the 250GB SATA hard drive. XP was working fine.

I booted up the BLAG 90K disc, and went through the install. At the partition selection page, I chose to setup BLAG in the free space available on the disc. I took this to mean the unused 50GB capacity.

I am now able to boot up BLAG, How do I boot up Win XP? I don't see the expected options at bootup allowing me to chose operating systems.

never mind, I found it. I never hit enter when I have the option on the BLAG startup screen. I did it, and found "other" as an alternate. Selecting this booted Winblows XP.

so, on to the next problem, for which I will make a new post (no ethernet connection)

You'll need to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and add several lines to identify the Windoze partition. This topic is covered extensively in various forums, including this article. Most will recommend something like this:

Code:
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1


The key to the above entry is to make sure you have the correct partition in the "rootnoverify" line, remembering that drive and partition numbers start at zero and not 1.
