I have a problem using grub2 version 1.97~beta4 on my Thinkpad X31. I've
installed grub2 successfully, and when I switch on, the grub screen appears,
but when I try to find my linux kernel file, grub2 can't see it. I've had a
great conversation with Jordan Uggla over on the help-grub mailing list but I
can't seem to get past this problem. The archive for the thread is at:


In case the reason why grub2 can't see my kernel file is due to a bios
limitation, I've tried using the ata module instead of the "normal" access
method (Jordan mentioned that using the ata module would overcome bios
limitations) but even using the ata module, I can tab-complete to the correct
partition, then on to the correct directory, but grub2 then thinks that the
correct directory is empty.

I've also now tried repartitioning / re "formatting" / reinstalling using
different geometries in case this would help, but I still have the same

What can I do to help debug this problem? Thank you.
