Unable to boot XCP on a multiOS workstation with GRUB


Hello,

I have a multi operating system desktop and I would like to be able to boot also the last distribution, installed separately on a new hard disk.

I installed Xen Cloud Platform on my /dev/sdc and if only that disk is present, it boots without any problem. If I connect the other disks, that are usually connected, I am not able to boot the XCP.

This is the GRUB entries I've added for XCP:
Code:
title= XEN Cloud Platform
root (hd2,0)
kernel /boot/xen.gz
module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xen root=/dev/sdc1 
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6-xen.img
The problem is that, whatever the rows order is, I always get the following error:
Error 19: Linux kernel must be loaded before initrd

If I try to issue the above commands by hand, in the GRUB console, it boots, but it goes in a kernel panic at a certain point.

What is also strange is that if I try to edit the line "kernel /boot/xen.gz" above, pressing the "e" key, and if I try to type:
Code:
kernel /["TAB-KEY"]
I obtain the list of the files present in /dev/sda1 O_O, even if the "root (hd2,0)" is present.

Could somebody help me please?

EDIT: Problem solved changing the initrd directive as it follows:
Code:
module /boot/initrd-2.6-xen.img

I think that onebuck's point was that there is a function called Zero reply threads here that helps the people here find questions that haven't been answered yet. Also, the threads that don't get any replies for a while, are automatically bumped to remind us they haven't been answered yet. Posting in your thread is a polite way to "get out of the way" so other questions with no replies can get the attention they deserve.

OK, thank you, it is more clear now. I edited the post in order to avoid posting two times consequently. That's why!

Anyway...
millgates, is correct about the zero reply. You should add a post to thread whenever the situation does change. Even if a correction to your OP. That way the original posts remains intact other than obvious typo, corrections and that sort of edits can be performed. But changing the content or modification of the situation should be in a new post to the thread.

You are still a newbie to the LQ forum so this is understandable.
