GRUB won't load after install
First of all, here the relevant specs of my PC: Asus A8N-SLI-Deluxe, Athlon XP 3500+, nVidia 6600GT running on PCI Express 16x, Seagate 7200.7 200GB on nVidia CK804 ADMA Controller, Maxtor 120GB and Seagate 80GB on nVidia CK804 PATA controller. Fedora Core 3 is installed in the Maxtor 120GB drive. The Fedora Core 3 CD's passed the media checks, the ISO's also lined up perfectly with the MD5sum.
First of all, I attempted to install Fedora Core 3 x64 using the graphical install, but that didn't work. All I got was a screen 3/4 full of green lines. The X server did start without any reported problems, though. Anyway, I went ahead and did a text install and that went ahead without incident. I chose for GRUB to be installed on the hard disk and not on the MBR, because I'm using Acronis OS Loader to dual-boot.
The PC rebooted and I chose Linux from the Acronis OS Loader. It thinks for a bit, and then I get a screen that says GRUB _ with the _ cursor flashing. That's all. I've left it for 10 minutes and it's still like that. I then used the Fedora Core CD to enter rescue mode and check out grub.conf and device.map, both we're fine. I tried grub-install --recheck /dev/hda and that confirmed that everything was good.
So I'm a bit lost. I thought about just using LILO instead, but it doesn't seem to be present in Fedora Core 3.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
