Linux – Dual booting Windows 2k3 Server and Linux MBR


I have Windows Server 2003 and Linux installed on one hard drive [on separate partitions]. My first partition is the linux boot partition, and maintains Grub. When I boot the Windows partition and shut down W2k3 keeps modifying the MBR to boot directly, and only to the Windows partition. How do I prevent this behavior? I rather like using Grub to make boot selections.

  • Try to nstall GRUB on the first sector of the /boot partition, not in the MBR.
