hp-mini with 60g HDD originally with Wxp. Am used to mandriva/pclos installers that automatically shrink partition, install grub to MBR and detect both OS. Somewhat confused. Read thread about grub as default in VL but installer uses LILO.
Used gparted in VL7.0 STD live to repartition drive:
sda1 / 20gb / ntfs - Winxp
sda2 / 5gb / FAT32 - small storage accessible to both Win and Linux
sda5 / ext4 - VL root partition
sda6 / swap
sda7 / ext4 - VL home
After install completed installed LILO to MBR. Rebooted and blank screen/ blinking cursor. Rebooted into VL7.0 live and used VASM to install boot loader ms-sys which gave back access to Win xp but no option to select VL although partitions are there. Just boots straight into Win.
I was under impression that LILO needs on MBR just as grub. Does LILO not autodetect both OS?
I suppose manual tweak of /etc/lilo.conf? Or is there some way in VASM to do this? Thanks
