GRUB2 error unknown command intrid


Hi ,

I installed Ubuntu 9.04 and installed grub2 on it
Then i installed grub2 on my flash drive and copied grub.cfg file from ubuntu to my flash drive in the /boot/grub directory

Well I am doing this to boot an ISO from the flash drive.

But now i am getting error like unknown command intrid when i select ubuntu and also unknown command boot when i select XP.

Can someone help me with this

Looks like your grub.cfg file is damaged.

LOL, seems our experiment with grub2 has went awry?

damn it jim!

I installed grub2 in my ubuntu too
but I didn't install it to the usb

you must have inadvertently installed grub2 to yor hd
and there's no grub.conf in the boot folder
yes?

you probably gotta re-install grub thru synaptic and then zap
the hd with grub again
where you ubuntu boot folder is

yes but the same grub.cfg file works if i boot from my hard drive.

also while installing grub2 on the flash drive there was not grub.cfg file in the flashdrive/boot/grub directory
Does this mean that the grub was not installed correctly on the flash drive???

Well like i said when i installed grub2 to my hd using sunaptic and then installed grub2 to my flash drive. Ya but when i installed grub2 on the flash drive there was no grub.conf on the /boot/grub/ directory
