Grub, Grubed, and Ubuntu Gutsy


I installed grubed on ubuntu gutsy, and now I keep getting an "error 11" whenever I try to boot to one of the options. I am on the live cd right now.

nevermind, once i copied that, and did a little research, I just changed windows to hd0,2 and added boot... Will still need help with the others, in linux it says that the recovery should be 11 and the other should be 10 but I get other errors(which I will update with shortly)

Edit: with trial and error I got in.. though I would still like an optimized boot menu if anyone has suggestions.

Where did those "-1" entries come from?

In all of the entries

root (hd0,PARTNO)

hd0 identifies the hard disk where you installed each OS (hd0 being your first, or only, hard disk).

PARTNO identifies the partition where each OS is installed.

If you did a standard Ubuntu installation, I would expect Gutsy, Gutsy Recovery, and memtest86+ to all be on the same partition so all 3 of those sections should have the same "root (hd0,PARTNO)" entry (replace PARTNO with the appropriate partition number).

If you don't know which partitions you installed to, you can open up a terminal window & run:

sudo fdisk /dev/hda

Then, when you see "Command (m for help): enter
p

All of your partitions will be listed, so you should be able to figure out what's where. To get out of fdisk just enter
q

Be careful with fdisk. If you enter anything other than p and q you can seriously mess up your partition table if you don't know what you're doing.

Thanks, I used QGRUBEditor.. I will be sure to fix those..

I had everything set up , just havent tried booting to the recovery or memtest so i'll simply change those to the same partition.

Thanks
