Problem with grub

I i try to add win2k in grub.
win is on second hard drive, on first patrition.
It looks like this:

title Win2K
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

but on boot comes an error:
Selected hard drive doesn't exsits!

Where is the mistake?

Thanks smile

Re: Problem with grub

The map commands should come before rootnoverify, and as you are effectively swapping the disks around, rootnoverify should say (hd0,0).

Re: Problem with grub

Shouldn't it look like this? :

title Win2K
map (hd0) (hd2)
map (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

Re: Problem with grub

Allow me to have a go - I think shadowhand has a typo:

title Win2K
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

Otherwise correct though - you don't need both rootnoverify AND root. One or the other will suffice.

Didn't help sad
with rootnoverify # Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format
with root
In one line goes: Filesytem type is ext2fs, patrition type 0x83
and Error 13 sad
