Puppy Linux: > Boot fails, Grub stage 1.5, error 15. [SOLVED]


Boot fails, Grub stage 1.5, error 15.
Installed puppy (tried both Lighthouse Pup 4.4.2-c and MiPup 2.6) to hard drive after trying both Kubuntu and Debian 5 (installed AOK).

I can boot from a Super Grub Disk boot floppy if I select Linux >2 then the menu.lst

Confirmed contents of /boot/grub/menu.lst as:
title Puppy Linux 442 full install
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 pmedia=atahd

vmlinuz is in /boot, BTW

have only one hd and puppy is on first partition.

Kernel 2.6.28.5

Your kind assistance would be appreciated.

Welcome to LQ johnbartley!

Mmmm, your menu.lst looks right...

Puppy installed grub, you installed grub, or grub was already installed via Kbuntu?

Which pup is installed to hd now/?
Lighthouse?
Lighthouse is cool huh?

I did the frugal install of lighthouse "by hand" into my ubutnu partition.

Also, can you tell us your machine specs?

Solved

Found the version of gparted (0.45) borks when used with a partition created wuth Intrepid Ibex (*buntu 9.04), which sets inode=256 . Blew away the hard drive, reformatted, changed the inode to 128. Works fine now with no changes to menu.lst .
