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.
