Cannot boot FC6 - is my boot image lost !?
Situation is as follows:
I had XP and Vista installed. I then proceeded to install FC6 and have successfully did it. I put FC6 boot image on a /boot partition I made
I then proceeded to copy that boot image into my windows XP so that I can simply add the entry on my boot.ini for FC6
I used the following commands:
mount -t msdos /dev/hda2(fat32 partition for passing boot image) /mnt/fat32
dd if=/dev/hda5(my /boot partition) bs=512 count=1 of=/mnt/fat32/fedora6.bin
I then copied that image while in windows xp, into C drive and added C:\fedora6.bin to my boot.ini file
.......FC6 simply cannot boot, it gives me the following error:
A disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
Any idea how to fix it ? ....For some reason when I installed FC6 my Vista boot file got 'corrupted'....not so corrupted, but the entries seem to be deleted, but it boots just fine
I installed FC6 boot loaded to the first sector of the /boot partition
I would appreciate help so much !
