Yeah I know. For some reason I cant boot a single liveCD to install grub. I have about 7 of them and none of them boot. When I can see the error it usually errors saying it cant find the root filesystem from the CD. I have booted liveCDs successfully before...that's how I got ubuntu installed.
So I made a grub livecd as explained here: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/man...D_002dROM.html
I have copied over the lines from my actual menu config and have tried several boots manually. All of the boots fail with the kernel stalling at "CD-ROM" or "[sda] Attached SCSI disk" After a couple minutes it displays
Check root= bootarg cat /proc/cmdline or missing modules, devices: cat/proc/modules ls /dev
ALERT! does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
(sda should be my harddrive but for some reason I think it's trying to reference my CD drive).
Any help please? I think I remember grub can be installed from inside windows so I might try this next.
