Hello, I've been spending the last 4 hours trying to install Fedora Core 4. I installed it using the local install, which worked fine.
The problem I run into is when I reboot, I get the plain grub command line, no menu.
Seems to be a FC4 grub install issue or something.
I can get into FC4 or Windows by manually typing the commands out, but when my fionce wants to use the computer, she'll freak out if she has to type some command on boot, lol
Anyway, I'm a Suse user and I've used RH9 in the past which brings back memories why I switched to Suse. I want to get FC4 working so please help
I was able to boot w/ Knoppix and read my /boot partition and the grub.conf and it looks fine. I'm thinking the device map is my problem.
# this device map was generated by anaconda
My partition setup:
/dev/hdd Fat32 (for transfering files)
now my command that I use to boot FC4 is as follows:
Kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
I got these from grub.conf
Now why isnt the nice and fancy grub menu not displaying?
Grub is installed on /dev/hdb (/boot partition) and during installation I did tell it to write Grub to MBR on /dev/hda.
As a last resort, I tried the force LBA and it didnt change my issue.
