Grub loader problem

Hi all ,

I know many threads are posted about this and I also tried the solutions given in that but still I can't able to fix it.

My problem is grub loader didn't display at all

I used fdisk -l command and found that Fedora is installed in /dev/hda6

I edited two entries (splashimage,root as (hd0,6))in the grub.conf file

but still problem exists.

When I use command fdisk -l

It's show that partition starts with

/dev/hda1 which is the windows partition bootable (I don't know what about hda0) is it normal ?

please help me to sort out this problem

Thanks in advance

You seem to have messed up grub.

Use the Fedora Cd/dvd to rescue the system

Chroot to you system and

#grub-install /dev/sda

/dev/hda1 = hd0,0
/dev/hda2 = hd0,1


/dev/hda6 will be hd0,5
