I got the help, thanks anyways
:suprised: interesting thread openner! Can I ask what the question was? :dead:
Well I would of deleted it but this vbulletin board here I can't find the delete post button. It was a problem in which GRUB loading stage 1.5 would appear and then the system would reboot.
Howza 'bout the solution, so if anybody else runs into this, this thread could be some help?
what he said - that was kinda my thinking... not that GRUB has ever given me that issue.... Was it a BIOS thing going on?
To tell you the truth, it was simplistic for a Linux console user, but not for anyone else.
You take the live CD
Type Rescue at the boot screen
When everything is loaded after the instructions, type:
it will reinstall grub to the hard drive with the boot section.
Just so this works for everyone, you should use grub-install /dev/hda or whatever your bootable drive is. Depending on the distro, the /dev/boot node is not always [or usually] created. Also, any LiveCD will work as long as you chroot yourself into the broken install.
for some reason for me, it works on both /dev/boot and /dev/hda (I don't know why).
It will if there is a symlink from /dev/boot --> /dev/hda, but not every version of udev creates that symlink.
