I just backuped evrythink, created a new ext3 partition on my boot drive (after resizing the others) installed grub there and evrything works perfectly.
I think GRUB boot partition should be on the boot drive....
Under vista Hard drive = 0, Partition = 2
Under XP Hard drive = 2, Partition = 2
(I get the hard disk numbers from Disk Manager)
The generated file is the same in both case (Attachement) which seems to be good or at least it has something to do with GRUB. :)
This method shoud work if...
grub-install hd1,1 is working ...
Installation finished. No error reported.
This is the contents of the device map /boot/grub/device.map.
Check if this is correct or not. If any of the lines is incorrect,
fix it and re-run the script `grub-install'.
The exact error is ..
smalldot@linux-g36z:~> su -
linux-g36z:~ # grub-install hd(1,1)
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
Where can I find grub2? (on http://www.gnu.org I found some alpha release but I dont know which one is good for me, and how to install it)
From your previous link
grub-install hd(1,1) in may case
generates the error some problem with '(' (I am far from home for a few thay, when I am back I will past the exact error.)
Actually I don't see syntax like that in the link...
I am a bit confused with the file system. (0x83)
if I check with df -T it sais ext3
if I type root(hd1,1) in grub than it sais ext2fs,
I hope you can figure out the truth :)
Can you past a link about how to get (and how to install) grub2 (I am just learning linux)
I am trying to create an XP, Vista, Suse Triple boot.
First I've tried to use nst loader but all I had is a GRUB_ at the top of the screen.
(I cannot install GRUB to the boot sector during Suse installation because of system restart like someone else already wrote before. So I've installed...
I had an XP and a Susu 10.1 installation dual boot with grub. I've installed Vista so no grub any more. If I reinstall grub mbr I can boot to suse, but I cannot boot to any windows system (If I select windows from grub my system restarts.)
So currently If I want to switch between MS / Suse...
