yes, through the ubuntu setup (entirely off install disc); although i
have managed now but not 100% sure why.
previously when it used to fail, most of the time i think i was trying
to install it on the same disk as the os, since i have 3 disks, 3 OSes,
but use their own bootloader and just change the boot device from bios
or menu if i need to change, since i stick to one os in long phases and
don't need to change so often. also makes it easier to make changes to
one disk without messing up other boot loaders.
this time i just let it go on its own, and it found windows loader on
first disk, and it added it to grub
menu. i have first IDE drive as boot in bios and dual boot in grub now.
I can live with this.
thanks for your reply. if not wasting your time, could you confirm this
is the case ? for futher ref..
