booting from the grub command line

Posted 10-30-2011 at 07:50 AM by neonsignal

There are grub2 boot failures (such as when disk UUIDs don't match) where it can be useful to do a minimal boot from the grub command line.

For typical systems (such as booting from the first partition of the first hard drive), this can be done with the following grub commands:
Code:
linux (hd0,1)/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1
initrd (hd0,1)/initrd.img
boot
