http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi I'm having a problem getting grub to detect my XP partition. Original configuration:- Hard drive partitioned with primary partitions (Vista and Vista restore) and an extended partition for data did not want anything to do with Vista so I Installed XP in extended partition Vista boot manager offered Vista or XP All worked for years Decided to remove Vista and dual boot with Ubuntu 10.04 in the primary partition Backup time Backed up to usb drive using live cd and dd command backed up /dev/sda5 the xp partition inside the extended partition backed up the hole drive /dev/sd (Hardware)
