During Mint installation on my laptop, I repartioned hard drive to 28 GB Windows XP partition followed by 28 GB Mint root partition followed by .5 GB swap partition.
After restart, I tried to boot Windows from Grub. It was the last option on the Grub menu. It goes to black terminal screen with "Starting up ..." and promptly hangs - no disk activity - no keyboard input - nothing. I have to power off and power back on.
The NTFS partition is there (mounted as /media/hda1 in Mint) and everything appears to be good on it.
Can anyone please tell me how to get my laptop to boot my Windows XP?
