Hello, im trying to dualboot a linux distro like i used to. in the past i have dualbooted vista and ubuntu,vista and fedora. i couldnt seem to dualboot fedora 11 whic i thought was because of the boot partition. to dualboot i install grub to the boot partition which is normally / and then start up vista and use easybcd to create an entrie on the vista bootloader. but it didnt work for mandriva 2009.1 spring or fedora 11. maybe i put grub on wrong partition by mistake. btw they both use EXT4 so they could be part of the problem but i dono. i may try ubuntu 9.04 later to see. another issue i have is that suddenly both fedora and mandriva tell me sda is corropt and do i want to format it. no i dont want to because its not corropt and contains two ntfs partitions c: and F: C is vista and F: is my data partition. I may grab fedora 10 iso and see if i can install that since i have dual booted that fine before. btw im also asking on the easybcd forums.
