My friends computer has two HDD. In the 1st one XP and Ubuntu and in the 2nd one FC5. Suddenly the XP is not booting.
He chose XP from boot loader [he uses Acronis Boot Manager] it is giving him a blank screen with the cursor blinking at the top left corner. Just that no movement, no XP logo nothing.
He tried fixmbr, fixboot and chkdsk \r; but in vein. sfc \scannow is not supported. Fixmbr and fixboot succeeded but it is giving me the same result. I reinstalled FC5's Grub in the hdb5 [location of FC5's installation] but it does not give me boot option. I then reinstalled FC5's grub in hda1 and atleast now I can access net and look for immediate help from you.
He asked for my help and I know reinstalation is the last option but I just don't want to do that unless I do not have any more avenues left. He needs to boot in windows, so please help.
