Subject description: How do I figure this out?
 

I had this Dell PowerEdge 1300 Dual-Slot1 P3 running at 800 MHz with Ubuntu 10.10 LXDE, but switched out the hard drive and video card, since it was still slow with only 512 MB RAM, two of the RAM clips broke off.

I'm booting again with the LuMa CD to see if I can figure it out...Why did it auto-mount the hard drive where this Puppy should be booting from? Maybe a re-boot...No still Error 15. It should be on the MBR as no other OS is there.

Trying LuPu 511 Live...Switch Root to layered file system...back to other CD.

To be continued from other computer with the problem...

Thanks,
Joan in Reno

Grub Error 15 is "File not found". It means that there is a mismatch between the location of the Puppy files and what is stated in the GRUB menu.lst .

Is Puppy installed in a folder? Does the GRUB menu entry have the correct folder name?

What does that mean?

What I forgot I had to do was issue commands to try to troubleshoot one Puppy with another. It's way more complex than the old Puppy 1X days when I put it on a ZIP drive to boot off one attached to the USB.

Maybe I better print out that Puppy Book...has much changed fundamentally? I got further with the LuMa than I did with LuPu, but I remember I had trouble when Grub calls it HDa, the old way and the new way is SDa. One was refused while the other wasn't. Well will see better with less sleepy eyes.

Good night folks,

Sorry to keep you waiting, but I had to sleep, work and eat.
