Triple Boot: Gentoo - Vista - XP [Solved]

Hello there!

I have an issue regarding this:

I have no problem at all loading XP (2 partitions, second drive) and Gentoo (5 partitions, first drive) in GRUB, each on a different HDD, but i just added another HDD with Vista in it (2 partitions, third drive) and i can't get GRUB to load it. It just stays with the " _ " prompt waiting, doing nothing.

This is my current grub.conf:

[cpp]video=vesafb:mtrr,ywrap,1024x768-32@85
default 0
timeout 10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Windows XP SP3
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader (hd1,0)+1

title=Windows Vista SP1
map (hd0) (hd2)
map (hd2) (hd0)
chainloader (hd2,0)+1

title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.23-r8 (safe)
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/linux-2.6.23-gentoo-r8 root=/dev/sda3

title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.25-r1
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/linux-2.6.25-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/sda3 [/cpp]

Like i said, there's no problem with XP nor Gentoo; Vista is the only one that doesn't boot. And they are all on different HDD's.

Thanks in advance :D

Esop!

Try

title=Windows Vista SuxxxxxP1
map (hd0) (hd2)
map (hd2) (hd0)
chainloader +1

or


title=Windows Vista SuxxxxxxP1
map (hd0) (hd2)
map (hd2) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1


Sorry couldn't resist :D :lol:

Good luck :)
