hey comp guru another little problem :x i have installed leopard on another drive but i dont see any option to select the drive in add entry menu, the drive selection drop down is absent only for mac but is thr for linux etc :( any help appreciated
sir ur understanding ... in the slax folder there is a .gz file the first code u gave had .zip as the extension which i blindly copied upon digging into the slax folder i found that the extension for the initrd file gz and then i changed the exension in the menu.lst file from zip (which does not...
ok the initrd.zip is actually initrd.gz which i changed but im still getting a kernel panic with an absolutely weird error
also while i was at slax forums i came across this thread may be this could give u some idea about slax's booting
SLAX :: View topic - How to move bootable usb files to...
ok i will post it on slax also but a little R&D atleast got me to load the drive on which slax is it gave me a VFS: drive loaded as read only (which is the case when u load slax from a folder) but the error changed:
Warning: Unable to open an initial console
Kernel Panic: - not syncing:No init...
i tired it and this is what im getting:
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda5" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append correct "root"= boot option
Kernel panic-not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root from unknown block (0,0)
problem soved i did a fresh install and i think it was the hd0,# problem maybe i had entered the wrong no. lsat time this time everything is working fine ... grub is being launched from the easybcd boot loader menu :D
i dont know whats wrong now but it is still giving the same error
i have chosen hd0,4 as the grub location (easybcd also shows partition 4 for linux in the drop-down while add/removing an entry)
still when i boot and try to go into ubuntu it gives me the same 4 line error mentioned above
i had already tried this (but waited for ur tut to see if i was doing something wrong) and here is what i am getting:
Loading New Partition
Bootsector from CH Hoch Statter
Cannot load from hard disk
Insert System disk or press any key :?
both these are in the boot folder that is d:\slax\boot\
list of files
also a folder named DOS
well it has already taken over as i did not un-check the install bootloader option during installation however i repaired my bootloader using vista's dvd and got my easybcd bootloader back now i went into vista and aded the entry under Linux and chose the drive it was in but now when i try to...
ok just 1 question i am going to install 7.1 and have a quad boot but if i install ubuntu then wont it restart and take over the boot menu?
as in if i install ubuntu on a partition of a hdd which has vista and xp and then if i restart wont ubuntu take over the boot menu?
