I have checked several tutorials online but none of them seem to get it done. Thanks in advanced for any help.
If it won't boot, then you will need to modify your Grub menu.lst (or grub.cfg) file. To do so, when grub loads after you turn on the computer, follow these steps:
- Highlight the OS you want to load
- Press the letter "e" to edit the bootloader configuration
- Now check that the correct kernel path/filename is set in the line; if you were to remove the whole path, type /boot/ and press tab, you might get luck enough to have tab completion help you get the kernel path correct.
Here's an example of my GRUB configuration:
# (0) Arch Linux
title Arch Linux
kernel /vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/728c4820-b287-464e-b25c-82a1c245311e ro quiet vga=773
