Re: Help... Can't boot!



Quoting Stuart <stuart sjsears com>:

At which point does it say that?
Do you get as far as the grub menu?

Partition type 0x5 is an 'Extended' partition. (/dev/sda4 or
equivalent, usually) - this suggests to me that your grub.conf is
incorrect, probably containing a line similar to
root (hd0,3)

But you can see this (I hope) by hitting 'e' at boot time, assuming you
get as far as the grub countdown/menu.

Grub.conf is as follows:

root (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64 ro root=UUID=1acff5c4-7a23-414a-9e04-f356c64e24bd rhgb quiet

initrd /initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64.img

device.map is as follows:
(hd0) /dev/sda
(hd1) /dev/sdb

When it tries to boot, I get the following (it skips the grub menu -- it's the only install there):
root (hd1,0)
fs type unknown, partition type 0x5.

menu.lst is pretty much the same. as the grub.conf posted above. I went in and put in a 10 second delay on the menu.lst. I confirmed that it magically shows up in the grub.conf once I put it in the menu.lst.

I also confirmed that i no longer need the old /home partition that I've been keeping around because I couldn't be sure what it was. :-) Maybe i'll move that down to /dev/sda and make it the /boot partition or something.
