Bug Description

After installing 11:10 side by side with windows xp service pack 3, even though the windows XP is listed it will no longer boot, it just hangs on a blank screen. The unbuntu does boot correctly, HELP. I need to recover the use of the windows XP system.

Michael

Have tried booting into windows using Windows recovery disk and then doing a
fixboot
fixmbr

Then reboot and XP does not load.
So I boot to the Ubuntu CD and reinstate Grub. Ubuntu is again running but windows is not.

I have been a developer on both Linux and Windows for over 20 Years and would be willing to work with a Grub developer so this can be fix. I believe the Ubuntu installer should have check for the right conditions and if not found it should have refused to do the install rather than leaving the windows system unusable.

This release of Ubuntu is no longer receiving maintenance updates. If this is still an issue on a maintained version of Ubuntu please let us know.
