  • 1. Did you see a bootloader coming up?

    2. Post your /etc/grub.conf (try booting into failsafe mode by passing the argument "single" to the bootloader, if this fails use ext3fs to mount your linux root partition in Windows XP and then you will be able to read this file). Also tell us how your disk is partitioned.

  • Hi Mahandra,

    The best resolution is ,"Repair the boot loader or Install a new boot loader"

    This will certainly resolve the issue.
