Hi,

I've got a strange problem here:

After hibernating XP a couple days ago (didn't change anything in
configuration or hardware) I tried to start it up again.

After choosing XP in the GRUB menu it shows:

Booting 'Win XP'

rootnoverify (hd0,2)
makeactive
chainloader +1




Booting Linux works fine.

What I tried so far:

Attaching the HD via USB-Connector to another PC with XP: System
Partition is accessible, chkdsk reports no errors and ntldr,
ntdetect.com and boot.ini are there (also tried to copy from other
machine, no help)

Booting from BartPE / XP-Setup-CD: Hangs after first line of text with
blank screen and HD-LED steady on"

Booting from HD while attached via the USB-connector: XP-Splash comes
for one second or so and then: BSOD 0x0000007B (inaccessible boot device)

my configuration:

grub.conf:


#Windows XP
title Win XP
rootnoverify (hd0,2)
makeactive
chainloader +1

# For booting GNU/Linux
title GNU/Linux Kernel 2.6.21-r4
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.21-r4_002 root=/dev/sda5
video=vesafb:ypan,1920x1200-32@60


fdisk:

The strange thing really is that it just happened without any changes in
the system...

Thanks for all help!
