  1. #31

    Re:Linux Boot and SuSE trouble

    i have not done a same version to same version upgrade, but when upgrading old versions the settings did stay the same.

    Re:Linux Boot and SuSE trouble

    Upgrading isn't an option that Anaconda gives me. I might just start over here pretty soon. I'll wait for the rescue disks and see if they can help, otherwise, I'll start over....

    Re:Linux Boot and SuSE trouble

    Now things are really messed up....

    I booted off the Fedora CD in rescue mode.
    I mounted the partition that fedora is installed on mount -t ext3 /dev/hda3 /fed
    I then chroot /fed
    The cd /fed
    The ran grub-install --root-directory=/dev/hda

    Code:
    sh-2.05b# grub-install --root-directory=/dev/hda
    Installation finished. No errors 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'.
    
    (fd0)   /dev/fd0
    (hd0)  /dev/hd0
    sh-2.05b#
    So then I reboot and get this:
    Code:
     -Grub version 0.93  (683k lower / 392128k upper memory)
    
    [Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first work, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename]
    
    grub>_
    Luckily I had a bootmagic rescue disk for windows so I was able to boot windows ok. I turned Bootmagic back on and it had to write over whatever had taken up it's spot on the boot sector of my hard disc.

    I don't think I did that right....

    Try installing grub manually:

    1.
    Code:
    su -c grub
    From the Grub command-line:
    1a.
    Code:
    root (hd0,2)
    1b.
    Code:
    setup (hd0)

    Re:Linux Boot and SuSE trouble

    Should I do this from the CLI in my new Fedora install or from the rescue disk?

    Re:Linux Boot and SuSE trouble

    I thought your new Fedora instll would not let you boot?

    [/quote]

    that would be from the grub command line

    Re:Linux Boot and SuSE trouble

    Sorry, I should clarify.

    I installed a second Fedora over the SuSE install a few days ago since I couldn't get online in SuSE. As it turns out, I still can't get online with the new Fedora install (trick, you have been helping me with that on a different thread). Anyway, to confuse matters even more:

    I have THREE main partitions:

    hda1 - windows
    hda2 - boot magic partition (small, less than 100 mb)
    hda3 - ORIGINAL Fedora partition
    hda 4 - Linux Swap
    hda 6 - Formerly SuSE, now a NEW Fedora install...

    my goal is to get both Windows and the OLD fedora install to boot. One of the partitions is an extended partition (I think) and includeds the Linux Swap and the hda 6 partition.. does that make sense?
