load kernel first


Ubuntu 9.1 is installed in sda1, however, while creating a separate boot partition an error occurred and now I can not boot sda1. I get the message ¨load kernel first¨.

I have tried without success to learn to load a kernel.

Can you help?

Not without information.
Describe - in detail - what steps you performed, and when the failure occurred; what command failed, any messages produced.
Also go here and run the script from a liveCD and post the RESULTS.txt for us.

load kernel first

When Grub appears I can boot to my other partitions. However if I try to boot into sda1 where my Ubuntu 9.1 is, it does not work and the message ¨load kernel first¨ appears.

I tried to load grub into sda1 with rescatux but it did not work, supergrub produces the same message ¨load kernel first¨.

Booted from sda3 and found kernel in sda1. I could not extracted into the root directory because I am ¨not root¨ How can I be root? I am the only person who uses the computer.

Results.txt Dear Syg00

I have done what you suggested but I can not open the results.txt file. The editor window shows the following message

Could not open the file
/home/pedro/Desktop/RESULTS.txt

With Ubuntu, you use "sudo" to assume root privileges. I'm surprised that file isn't world readable. I don't have a Ubuntu handy, but try "sudo gedit RESULTS.txt" (you'll need enter your password).

Load kernel first

Hi syg00

It opened but gedit can not detect the code. Thus it can not open the file.
