Fedora Core 5 installation problems—–NTLDR is missing" error

Anyone using Fedora Core 5 ?? I want to give it a goal on my own desktop…however, i failure to create a dual boot system…:(

Any Linux veterans would like to share their experience??

"NTLDR is missing" error

I use Window XP and recently installed FC 5 on my second HDD. There is something I am not sure for the installtion process.

Q1. During my installation of FC5, there is no GRUB setting option. Is that normal??
( I saw the installation guide and there should be ?! )

After installtion, I configure the GRUB to boot Window XP. However, an error message :

NTLDR is missing
press alt–ctrl–del to restart

Q2. Is it because GRUB overwrite the bootloader of XP? How to avoid this? ( suppose we should have options during FC5 installation, right??)

I will keep trying to install FC5 until I success!!

  1. Well when I installed Fedora it will go through a stage where it should configure grub for you. GRUB will detect if you have a bootable windows partition and add a suitable entry. Have you tried this?

    I wasn't that impressed with Fedora and I switched to Ubuntu. 6.06 has just been released and works very nicely. I'd recommend giving that a try.

  2. Thanks a lot for your info.

    I am puzzled because I cannot see anything about the GRUB during the installation process. I know there should be config. for the grub as the installation guide said…...but, i can see none. May be my download was not completed, or may I should check my eye sight seriously…

    Let me check the detail for the Ubuntu. 6.06. :)
