I have installed Linux Mint 9 within Win XP and have installed an additional HDD as a Slave on the same IDE cable as my DVD drive.
I installed ubuntu on to the additional HDD using the live CD and when I try to boot the computer I am greeted by two versions of GRUB?! First version appears to be the one that comes with Mint and so asks me to boot either Windows or Mint, when I select Mint I get ubuntu's version of Grub, it asks me to boot one of three OS's; here's where it gets weird:
Top of screen says:
GNU GRUB Version 1.98-1ubuntu5-1mint2
If I select Win, it boots fine. If I select Mint it boots fine however if I select Ubuntu it says:
error: no such device
error: file not found
error: you need to load the kernel first
I pressed "e" within grub and was faced with this:
set root ='(hd1,1)'
search --no floppy --fs-uuid --set f6422203421e479
loopback loop0 /linuxmint/disks/root.disk
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.3-21-generic root =dev/sdb1 loop=/linuxmint/disks/root.disk ro quiet splash
Can anyone help me? - you may need to use layman terms while I break free from Microsoft!
Thanks in advance
