Ok, Grub can be awesome, and it can be the suck. The best way, that doesn't take a giant amount of effort, is to read the site first, download and burn the iso, and run as you read it.--- On Sat, 12/27/08, Beartooth <Beartooth swva net> wrote:From: Beartooth <Beartooth swva net> Subject: Re: Catch-22 : NO JOY after all To: fedora-list redhat com Date: Saturday, December 27, 2008, 2:02 PM On Sat, 27 Dec 2008 12:50:01 -0800, Antonio Olivares wrote: [....]Welcome to the GRUB_ Club :) That is when you install a new kernel, machine rebootsand you aregreeted with a GRUB__ prompt only that does nothing :( What you need to do(to make your computer function) isto boot in rescuemode and reinstall grub.

Try that andreport back.Hmmm ... What means "reinstall" here? How do you do it?? I did "cat grub.conf" on the #2 machine,switched to #1, booted rescue, chrooted /mnt/sysimage, and proceeded to edit grub.conf to clone #2. That failed.It may or may not have to do with the fact that onegrub.conf is full of LMV stuff and one with UUID stuff.Is there such a command as "reinstall grub," ordo you do it by commanding "grub" from root and doing God knowswhat from there, or ...?It should be something like # grub-install /dev/sdX where X is a, b, c, ...? else try with grub? and press TAB to see options.-- Beartooth Staffwright, PhD, Neo-Redneck Linux Convert Remember I know precious little of what I am talking about. --Regards,Antonio
http://www.supergrubdisk.org/index.phpThis has helped me with a lot of Grub related issues, including ones that the IRC room didn't seem to have a handle on (Where the F7 Rescue ISO didn't see the LVM and grub set up, F8 saw it, but would toast the F7 system) and using that I fixed the Grub issues I got (It wasn't as pretty as Grub_ it was no o/s found at all issues, but same ballpark, with stage 1 grub loading from what I have read on this).
