Im having a little problem right now. This was my setp up 2 weeks ago
DRIVE B==>REDHAT9. Then I decided to go out and buy another HD and install other distros on the new drive without messing with the data i had on the drive B. So I removed Drive B and install the new drive(i'll call it C for continuity). Proceeded to install FC2, everything went fine. Today I decided to remove drive C and reinstall drive B so i can access some data on that drive. Now it boots, it comes to the screen where grub appears and just hangs there. I can boot into rescue mode but dont know what to do next. Can someone point in the right direction. I want to edit grub.conf so i have the option of xp or redhat9. thanks in advance for your help. Another questions, if and when i decided to reinstall Drive C, am I going to have the same problem??
thanks for the reply massand, but i want to be able to boot into redhat9 which is
different hard drive than fedora core2. I want to be able to boot into rescue mode
using redhat9 cd which i did and got to the shelll prompt and typed chroot /mnt/
sysimage. I dont understand why this is happening. 'Grub is installed on botgh
drives, the one with Fedora and the one with Redhat9. what lines do i have to add to grub.conf to restore to its original default configuration?? thanks in advance
hi messand, after booting into rescue mode and chroot /mnt/sysimage, is there a way to log into graphical mode??
will this re-install grub or re-set it to its orginal configuration??
thanks in advance
i opened my grub.conf file and everything looks ok
title Red Hat Linux(2.4.20-6)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-6 ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi
rootnoverify (hd0, 0)
should i make any changes?? or should re-install grub? if re-install grub, will that fix the problem?? thanks in advance
