Hi,

I have netbook with preinstalled Windows on HDD. I used SDHC card to install Gentoo.
I installed grub on SD and changed boot order - to boot from SD.

Now I can boot to gentoo flawlessly but I can't boot to windows (only to popup boot menu and select hdd).
my grub.conf:
Code:
default 0
timeout 30

title Gentoo Linux 3.7.10
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/gentoo-3.7.10 root=/dev/sdb2 rootdelay=12 acpi_osi="Linux"

title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1


If I edit boot line when booting hd0 is SD an hd1 is HDD.

Thanks.

I assume you can boot windows by selecting the hdd as primary boot in BIOS?
Wtth the sd card selected in BIOS, try
Code:
title Windows XP
map (hd0,0) (hd1,0)
map (hd1,0) (hd0,0)
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1
