Linux installs but doesn't boot -- WTF !!!!!!
I fell into deep shi@t on this one. Before I go further:
2.5 ghz intel proc. 1 gig ram. 60 gig primary hdd, 80 gig seconday hdd, ATI card,
My master and slaves are correct (for hdd and the two optical drives)
Here is the problem:
I "installed" Linux MEPIS 3.43 and restarted, per the instructions. Unfortunately upon reboot, the computer can not find either hdd but it can find my optical drives.
Stranger still, when I pop the live MEPIS cd back in (which is how I am able to get online now and write this) and look into the "mnt" directory, I see the three (3) MEPIS hdd I made earlier during the install process (root, swap, home) but nothing is in them. Nothing, not even folders. 0 kb. So, I re-installed and ran through the same process, and got the same result.
This will be a "linux only" box, so I did not install grub or samba.
I am totally lost. I don't know WTF or WTH is happening.
