Re: f10livecd installs but wont boot, Error 2



 
jackson byers wrote

I finally got the f10liveinstallcd to install,      to sda1
it evidently went thru w no errors
--unchkd sda,sdb initially  then went to custom install
--chose not mbr, instead firstsector of sda1
--the grub.conf  uses UUID for its root=

I copied the grub.conf stanza to my fc5 grub.conf, it is in control

title Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686 ro root=UUID=4e1021d9-e637-4
d03-97cb-fdd0d4b4cbee rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686.img

it all looks normal to me, altho use of UUID instead of  /dev/sda1
i did not expect

But,
on attempting to boot it lists the above kernel line,
followed by
Error 2: Bad file or directory type

===========
new data:
get different error response if i  do either:
a) in my fc5 grub.conf  a stanza with
    root(hd0,0)
    chainloader +1

or, b)  cp the f10 kernel, initrd to my fc5 /boot
     and in my fc5 grub.conf  a stanza with
      root(hd1,5) # sdb6, my fc5 install
              kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686 ro root=UUID=4e1021d9-e637-4d0
3-97cb-fdd0d4b4cbee rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686.img

Then, the error message from either a) or b)
after getting past the kernel line and the initrd line
and after getting to the bluesun graphic screen,
then screen goes  back to console and:

Unable to access resume  device....
mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3:  no such file or directory

can anyone interpret for me either/both:
 the errror 2 message or this new one?

thanks for advice
Jack
