The last time I tried to load a dual boot system with
and Windows XP with Grub, I completely stuffed up my boot
sector and could not access windows. I found out later that
it was recoverable but I buggered it up so badly, I had to "format
C" and start again. [..] Has anyone successfully loaded a
dual bootup system with Ubuntu and Windows XP (NTFS)?
Fedora Core (2 I think) had a problem where the installer wrote partition
data wrong. I didn't have the problem on my particular BIOS at the time,
and I definitely didn't have it when I installed Hoary a month or so ago.
There will be plenty of people on hand who can fix any problems that do
happen, but while I heard of heaps of problems with the broken Fedora
installer I've heard of none with Ubuntu.
