I apologize for my poor English (i'm French)
I installed GAG on a notebook Maxdata 8100IS (manufactured on september 2005) with this "mapping" :
sda1 NTFS 7 Go primary with Windows 2000
sda2 NTFS 42 Go primary
sda3 NTFS 42 Go primary
sda5 Swap 500 Mo
sda6 ext3 7 Go / for Linux Debian 1
sda7 ext3 49 Go /home for Linux Debian 1
sda8 ext3 # 1,5 Go / for Linux Debian 2 (for maintenance tools)
But GAG see :
B 07h OS/2 HPFS or Win-NT NTFS (OK)
C 07h OS/2 HPFS or Win-NT NTFS (OK)
D 07h OS/2 HPFS or Win-NT NTFS (OK)
E 82h (OK)
F 83h Linux ext2 (OK)
G 83h Linux ext2 (OK)
So it can boot Windows 2000 (on B) and the 1st Linux (on F), but not the 2nd Linux.
I've tried with G to K and i always have the message "boot sector infected".
I think (but perheaps it is false) the problem comes from this :
- Originally this netbook had a 60 Gb HDD
- I replaced it with a 160 Gb HDD
- It seems the BIOS does not access above 128 Go, and there no newer release
I think that because :
. Partition saving (http://www.partition-saving.com/) worked under MS-DOS with the old HDD
. It does'nt work on MS-DOS with the new HDD, but works under Linux
. It works under MS-DOS on another PC which has 2 x HDD, each with much more than 128 Gb
The 2nd Linux can be booted from GRUB2 of the 1st Linux.
Of course, i would like to boot it from GAG, to have the 3 OS completely independent
So, is there a way to obtain that ?
Thank you for your answers.
