I have 2 HDDs in my system. One contains an existing Windows XP load on drive "sda". I loaded linux mint 13 on drive "sdb" and made that bootable. I want Windows to handle the boot duties so I then ran the following from linux;
sudo dd if=/dev/sdb of=mint.bin bs=512 count=1
I then copied the generated file to the root of my windows drive and made the following entry in the windows boot.ini file;
When I restart, the Windows boot manager prompts me for Windows XP or "linux" but when I select "linux" the screen goes black with a blinking cursor in the upper left. The keyboard is non responsive and I'm forced to use the reset button on my system.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
