Re: Problems Installing Fedora x86_64



Craig,
I got it, I had to change the BIOS and disable the built in RAID. After talking to the manufacturer of the motherboard, I found out the driver wasn't compatible with Fedora 10.

Regadless thanks for the help and patience

Cheers

well, the installer always puts grub.conf in /boot/grub/grub.conf and if
it isn't there, you aren't going to be able to boot.

Apparently during the installation, you must have told the installer to put grub somewhere other than the default location. You probably want to re-install and use the defaults unless you are sure...especially when it
asks you where to install the bootloader.

Also, fwiw, make a 100Mb RAID 1 partition for /boot on all of the
drives.

Craig,
Keep in mind I am trying.

After I do "chroot /mnt/sysimage"
grub-install /dev/sda fails

I do find a boot/grub folder but no file under the name grub.conf.

The files I find are the same as the ones shown below.

Thanks for your patience

Craig,
Like you said the command "grub-install -v /dev/sda" works.
It returs the following:

"grub-install (GNU GRUB 0.97)"

After exit the chroot and the shell reboot.
Andafter taking out the DVD,  the computer hangs and do not do
anyting......????
----
you can try 'grub-install -v /dev/sdb' and then for sdc and sdd -
the
thinking is that the device order is different when you boot from
DVD
and when you don't.

If that fails, you might want to post the contents
of /boot/grub/grub.conf
----
It would be helpful if you followed the instructions that I have given
you twice already, to chroot to the installed files.

You must 'linux rescue' boot which you are doing.

After it locates the partitions, you must type the command...

chroot /mnt/sysimage

at that point, you should have a /boot with a /boot/grub directory
and a
file called /boot/grub/grub.conf

if you haven't done the chroot command, and you don't have a /boot
directory with a /boot/grub directory inside, any grub-install command
will fail.
