Originally posted by bigrigdriver Grub doesn't use the hda, hdb, etc. designation. It uses hd0, hd1, etc. (that hd zero, hd one, etc.).
So, hda=hd0 in grub's terminology. Try it again using /dev/hd0 instead of /dev/hda.
Mmmmm, I don't think so. You can use either even though the newer hd0 syntax is recommended.
I tried parted and then used the command 'check1' and got back that the freespace of hda1 equals 505700 not 505699 ..... seems like something might be up with the partition...... I read that the only way to fix this is to backup and then delete all the partions on my windows hdd (hda) and repartition...
I could just reinstall Redhat to hdb all over again but I think that's the easy way out.
