Subject: grub 2 problems...please help


(1) installed MS XP Prof works great...boots right up with no help.......SCSI 0

(2) installed Fedora 16 but cannot reach it         took hours          .......SCSI 1

attached is error_grub.txt with all attempts and results.

I tried to delineate attempts with __________ to make it easier to read

I've learned NEVER to install ANYTHING (XP included) with flash or ext HDs plugged in

Large Bold font is reqd for my bad eyesight

In the F16 install, there is something confusing.

One moves the target drive for install to the right page via ">>"

This was SCSI 1 since XP Prof is on SCSI 0

There is a check box for "install bootloader"

Why would anybody want to install the bootloader on SCSI 1 since it goes on SCSI 0. Remove the check and you go nowhere unless the check is there


The following is backward…hd0 really has MS XP Professional

I switched the entries and it did’t work so I switched back


(hd1) /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-35000000000000000

(hd0) /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SSEAGATE_ST336705LW_3DE04EJF000071424BKV
