Boot Failure -- Error while booting
 
Hello,

I am using a dual boot system - debian and windows.
Today when I tried to boot into debian,getting the following error:

"Loading linux 2.6.32-5-686...
error: Couldn't read file...
loading initial ramdisk...
error: you need to load the kernel first..

Press any key to continue"

When I press any key, it is taking back to the boot options page again.
Please let me know what I need to do to get my debian up again.

The problem is resolved,but not sure what i had done has actually resolved it.

Here is what i have done:

Last week i added another hard disk and installed centos in it, the first hard disk has debian squeeze and windowsxp.
Till yesterday it was working fine,but today when i tried to login debian it was giving error as shown in my previous post.
I just logged in single user mode and ran the command 'update grub' and when i rebooted i could login as usual.

Regards,
Anji
