error: invalid arch independent ELF magic


Hello,
my system is an Debian Wheezy with Softwareraid and md0 as root and boot partition. I also have a 100MB EFI BIOS bootpartition. All works fine. If i start the system i get the grub error as seen in subject.

Since that i tried to repair grub over chroot environment by booting the dbeian livecd and also tried to reinstall grub and reconfigure grub-pc. I installed grub onto all disk sda, sdb and so on. But each time i restart the system i got the same error.

I dont know what to do now and need help

"Kernel magic" errors usually relate to version errors in your kernel - installing mixed versions from mixed sources. Usually, it's some modules from kernel A while running kernel B. Compiling a kernel module for the ancient Nvidia blob I used was a regular source of this until I promoted myself to ATI OSS drivers and slackware.

This doesn't have to be an error condition, but when it is I clean up, replace the initrd if I'm using one, and it usually settles down. If everything is the same version from the same source, this doesn't happen.

Lol. Something wasn't installed, or wasn't deleted.
