my problem now is that. I need to detach both my ide drives before i can get grub to run. With the ide drives present i get error code 22. In my bios the boot order is sata 1 ->sata 2-> pata1->pata2. Grub was installed on Sata 1 into the mbr. I have booted to linux using the installation cd and tried reconfiguring grub. with my ide drives present. i get this in the grub drive order.
hd0 hdc (pata 1)
hd1 hdd (pata 2)
hd2 sda (sata 1)
hd3 sdb (sata 2)
Change every entry in the config to satisfy the new order. No go.
changed the drive order to
and all necessary parameters in the config . Still no go.
windows resides in (hd0,1) and linux resides in (hd1,8) and grub in (hd0)if the order is C or B
. If the order is B, grub runs but if it's in C, my grub dun run.
