Gentoo... grub problems... "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no


hey guys.. I'm finishing up my gentoo install.. well.. the base system anyways.. from a stage 3 install... I am following the gentoo-x86-quickinstall guide...

so I did:

emerge grub

grub

grub> root (hd0,1) (hda2 is the / partition)

grub> setup (hd0)

and here's what I get...

Code:
grub> setup (hd0)
 Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no
 Checking if "/grub/stage1"exists... no

Error 15: File not found

grub>
what is stage 1 and what do i need to do to get it there??

If you've installed grub (and it appears you have) they should be in /usr/share/grub/$ARCH/
Copy them all into /boot/grub

From the handbook
Code:
grub> root (hd0,0)          (Specify where your /boot partition resides)
grub> setup (hd0)           (Install GRUB in the MBR)
grub> quit                  (Exit the GRUB shell)
see the (Specify where your /boot partition resides) part

Hi there,

I have dual-boot Gentoo and CentOS on separate disks. I've faced the same problem.
Solution for me was:
Code:
grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/hda
This link has helped me:
