PostPosted: Sat 03 May 2008, 07:40    Post_subject:  pupeee - grub problem  

on my eee internal ssd I have 3 primary partitions:
1. hdc1 about 1.5GB windows xp (fat32), already installed and working
2. hdc2 about 1.2GB Linux (ext3), puppy full installed
3. hdc3 about 1.2GB free

the problem is: grubconfig doesn't work! it asks where to install (=where the /boot directory is), i enter "/dev/hdc2", and it keeps telling me "/dev/hdc2 is not linux"! i tried it mounted, unmounted, also tried "/mnt/hdc2" when it is mounted, but still no success...

i use pupeee b4. any suggestions?

If you want to install GRUB manually, go here and download the "grub-install" attachment.


However, because you are trying to dual-boot this machine with Windows, you will need to exercise some caution. In particular, the menu.lst file that comes with the above tutorial does not have an entry for starting Windows. Typically, it would be:

title Windows
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Since the eeepc comes with Linux installed, what happened to its version of GRUB? How are you currently booting Windows?
