    I commented on another post that the first partition was wrongly marked
    bootable. I should have made the comment more explicit.

    Booted Parted Magic, opened Gparted. On the 2nd partition (sized 100MB) he had set boot flag on it..
    I do believe that was what Carlos was trying to tell you in an earlier post.

    I read posts of both arvidjaar and carlos. They both mentioned that boot flag might have been wrongly set but I couldn't guess what should be done.

    The output from
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    &
    Code:
    parted -l
    would have given us the information needed to tell you what to do with the boot flag.

    Yes, I know. If it had been there a bit earlier, we (or, at least I) would have been able to tell him the boot flag needed to be moved and where it probably should have gone.
