cant see the grub menu just the grub command promt


hi guys,

i just wanna ask how to fix my grub problem?

my problem is, when i start my computer and boot to grub i cant see the grub menu and only grub show me the grub command promt.

like this:

Quote:
GNU GRUB version 0.95 (639k lower / 1047488 upper memory)

[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is suported. For the First word, TAB
list the posible command completion. Anywhere else tab list the posible
completions of a device/filename,]

grub>
after that i read the thread from fedora that i can use the native installation using root (hd0,0) but doesnt work. and i also try to install in rescue mode.

i enter the following command:

Quote:
Insert The Fedora Core Disk 1

linux rescue

(loading)

chroot /mnt/sysimage
fdisk -l

/dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 linux
/dev/hda2 14 9729 78843990 8e Linux LVM

grub-install /dev/hda
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive

grub-install /dev/hda1
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive
how can i fix this problem?

thank you all
