Smile "grub loading, please wait. Error 2"


After a hard drive failure I installed two new drives to the PC. At the time of installing they were recognised. Since then have not used that machine.

Last night installed Pclos 2009 beta - install seemed to go fine, and live CD worked well. Network detected and set up automatically.

After installing and rebooting got lines of the number 9. Rebooted and get:
"Grub laoding stage 1.5"

Reboot and get:
"Grub loading, please wait Error 2".

I've googled and altered boot sequence in BIOS. Is it possible the first hard drive could be IDE1 and not IDE0?

Many thanks

Just checked - seems as though it is correct hrd drive. Will try another distro, seeing as Pclos N1Ptt is beta. Thanks for looking anyway!
