Two weeks ago I replaced my old (asus cusl2) mobo by an asus p4v533-mx. When I rebooted grub stalled with the message STage2 (or something simular).
After a while I found out I could bring up my system again booting from the install (Suse 9.1), and then choose 'Boot installed system'.
(I tried repairing etc..).
The original system came back in it's original state (but much faster).
After a whole lot of tests it seems to me the boot loader (grub) was causing the problem. But when I installed LiLo it stalls as well.
I created a grub boot floppy by copying (dd) stage1 and stage2 to a floppy and booted that. I arrived in the grub prompt.
According to some articles I gave the command :
grub> root (hd0,1) # /boot/grub is on /dev/hda2 (reiser fs)
grub> find /boot/grub/stage1 # Here the system hangs as well !!!
This is where it ends for me.
Some facts :
- Suse 9.1
- 1st HDD : WD800JB-00FMAO Reiserfs, HDA1=swap,HDA2=reiser/boot
- 2nd HDD : Maxtor 6Y16opo (HDC1)
- Linux is the only installed OS (so I do not really need a loader)
- A (simple) boot from floppy would be ok as well (as long as it can run unattended)
If it might help you can see more information on http://envim.xs4all.nl/sysinfo
I have no idea how to go further I hope there is someone who can help.
Thanks in advance,
