    Disk Partition ID's (WinXP SP-2)

    I am dual-booting into XP and Linux off the same hard drive.

    Using Acronis Disk Director, if you look at the properties of a given partition, there will be an assigned numbered ID relating to Linux: the first partition on drive 1 will be (hda0), the second (hda1) and so on...

    Somehow these got turned around, so that I have (hda1), (hda5), and so on...

    hda2 - hda4 are gone,

    Where?

    I'm not at all sure whether this is a WinXP issue, and Acronis Disk Director issue, or a Linux issue. So I thought this was the place to start, as this board has the best there is in all areas -- no BS intended...

    Any ideas at all to figger this out?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    This may not be a cross-post, but it's awful close, Chuck. <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19> I think that from what I saw of a link provided you by Chris Baldrey in <post:=671,686>post 671,686</post:>'s thread, this certainly looks like a Linux question that you and Chris are already started on and should continue in that thread. I'm not gonna lock this one yet, just in case there IS something you need to explain further.
