Linux partition is recognized by Boot-US as non-bootable
Boot-US considers a Linux partition as non-bootable when
the Linux partition does not have a valid boot sector.
Such a partition is indicated as non-bootable by Boot-US. Boot-US requires a
valid boot sector in order to boot any partition.
Contrary to Windows partitions there are several ways to boot a Linux partition.
A missing boot sector is therefore nothing special for a Linux partition.
This problem of a missing boot sector can be easily repaired.
It is only required to install the Linux loader LILO onto this partition
(for example hdb5).
In the previous Linux tip 1 you can find an example
for the configuration file /etc/lilo.conf,
where Linux and LILO are installed on the logical partition hdb5 on the second disk.
