I installed everything on a "host" machine (same architecture as my target box, just more ram and more Mhz). I end up with something bootable! However if I put the disk in my original box, it just keeps rebooting, I don't even get the grub screen. Thus I suppose it is grub that forces this continuous reboot cycle?

Are there "options" when configuring grub? Something architecture dependent? host cpu is PIV, target CPU is PII, but they should have both the 686, ia32 arch. set. What's the best way to reinstall grub?
Soo many responses :) Am I the only one being clueless?
The saga continues though. Still on the working host machine, I did an apt-get upgrade, which installed grub updates: Fine I hoped, perhaps a fix? no: now even on this machine there is an auto-reboot on grub load. And it still does reboot on the target machine, so now it is a self-rebooting disk! Somehow fun, but not useful
