opendos fdisk *shifted* my partitions?
hmm, the home machine seems to be hosed, but good.
hda was divided as
hda1 tiny opendos partition to launch windows from d (hdb)
hda3 linux swap
Lilo happily defaulted to whichever was most recently booted. hda2 was the
bootable partition in the table.
I got the bright idea to play with dosemu again.
It only wants to look at bootable partitions, so i used fdisk (linux) to
toggle hda1 to bootable. I didn't toggle hda2 while I was at it. dosemu
happily set itself up.
reboot, and it's to dos. i don't htink lilo ever shoed, but maybe it did.
hmm, this isn't right, so used opendos fdisk to un-bootable hda1. it showed
hda2 as not bootable, so (i think) i set it to bootable.
now only dos could boot. tried switching back, but the partition table seems
to have shifted , to hda2, 3, and 4.
I can boot off a diskette, and briefly had lilo booting to linux. I changed
fstab and lilo.config to reflect the new setup, but now I get the AF1234 (or
whatever it is) instead of lilo. hitting 2 boots dos, and the diskette will
do linux, but several tries have failed to get a lilo that will come up.
any ideas (other than repartitioning :)
These opinions will not be those of ISU until it pays my retainer.
