I have successfully installed windowsXP and Gentoo as a dual boot on virtual box but XP isn't showing up in the grub. does anyone know a fix for this? All i seem to be able to find on the net for this problem is to do with ubuntu having this problem.

See if this works:


add this to /boot/grub/menu.lst:

title Windows bootloader access
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader (hd0,0) +1

"You adjust hd(0,0) to match the partition where xp's boot.ini file resides."



This is what I did a few years back when I ran a dual boot Linux/Windows system and grub couldn't find Windows on its own.

Do you have os-prober installed?
If you don't, install it, then run the grub mkconfig command.
