I seem to be having a problem here with a partition table. I was given a
dual-boot NT4/98 laptop by one of my managers and asked to put Solaris X86
on it as well. Disk space seemed to be no problem, but no-one had really
ever tried to put NT and Solaris together on a machine before. The install
went fine, except when it came to the partition table. As NT and Solaris
don't really like each other, when NT lost the battle of the bootloaders
it went into a sulk and decided to remove all traces of windows partitions
from the partition table. Now, my manager has informed me that there was
some stuff on the C: drive of the machine that she wanted to keep, so my
question here is how do I now get the SunOS bootloader to pick up on the
windows partition which it is currently not finding?
