Getting error when setting up triple boot (Windows 7, Fedora, and PCLinuxOS)

Hi,

I want to set up my laptop to triple boot. On my first partition, I installed Windows 7. On the last (4th) partition, I installed PCLinuxOS 2010. Finally, I installed Fedora 13. (Heard that it runs using Grub 2, assume that it can verify everything).

When I checked everything, Windows and Fedora responded positively but PCLinuxOS is having trouble. Below is the error code:

Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format.

I want to how making it work properly and want to regain PCLinuxOS.

Please help. 

Thanks.

Start your laptop in PLOS livecd open restore MBR program after restoring MBR restart your laptop after restoring MBR restart your laptop .

Or

Maybe it's Grub2 breaking the convection in numbers hdx, y! It has no hdo, 0 now but starts from hdo, 1.

Try to find in /boot/grub/grub.cfg of fedora the stanzas pointing to PCLos partition and change their (hdx, y) to (hdx, y+1).

Have in mind that changes in grub.cfg persist only until the kernel is not updated.

Hi there!

Here’s some suggestion to regain your PCLinuxOS in triple bootable laptop OS. First, installing additional OS could have impaired your boot sector, thus, restoring the Master Boot Record Program should be done first. Since, you like to regain Linux – insert the PCLinuxOS installation CD in the CD-ROM drive that will lead to restoring your MBR. After restoring, it displays:

Bootloader configuration

Detecting that there are other installed OS:

PC lInuxOS

Getting into Linux boot loader (GRUB)

On the other OS; add Windows

title Windows
    rootnoverify (hd0, 0)
    chainloader  +1


Reset Boot loader

Finally reset GRUB!
