Problem Installing SLES 11


Hello,

I am having a problem installing SLES11 on a new server. It goes fine through the setup until it gets to GRUB, it gets me the following error message:

Error occurred while installing GRUB

grub> setup --stage2= /grub/stage2--force-lba (hd0,0) (hd0,0)
checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists........ no
checking if "/grub/stage1" exists........ no

error 15 : file not found

quit

I cant continue the installation without this, any help would be appreciate it.

In the first place why are you doing a double post ?
Although the thread titles are different .
It is just a waste of our time.
Second can you find grub.cfg ?
See /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Or menu.lst instead of grub.cfg if SLES is still using GRUB1

Sorry, I did not knew where to post it.

Any how , the menu.lst does not make any reference to GRUB1.

This is what it is on menu.lst

##yast-generic_mbr
gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/message
##Yast-activate

##Dont change this comment
root(hd0,0)
Kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.274.19-5-pae root=/dev/disk/by-id/SCSI-1548436A51464312-part1 resume = /dev/disk//dev/disk/by-id/SCSI-1548436A51464312- part2 splash= silent-showopts
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.5-pae

and on the grub.cfg there is only
grub> setup --stage2= /grub/stage2--force-lba (hd0,0) (hd0,0)

On my screen, this line: setup --stage2= /grub/stage2--force-lba (hd0,0) (hd0,0) looks like it's missing the space after the /grub/stage2, and that it has an extra space after the --stage2=. Either error would result th a "file not found" abort.

Also, GRUB (and GRUB2) files are usually found in /boot/grub rather than /grub unless /boot is a separate partition. (Which is often the case when / is on a RAIDed drive since GRUB1 had problems booting from a RAID setup.)

The first part, it is my mistake all the spaces are where you suggested, I was the one who miss them on the transcription of the error.

Is there anything else I can try??? maybe the image I have doesn't have those files?????

Well, the SuSE Linux Enterprise Server contains propitiatory setup and configuration tools and you should have support available as part of your $800/year subscription. So, why not contact Novell for help setting up your server?

Nice reply PTrenholme...

I'm looking here for an answer to a similar problem. I also have full access to SLES support but sometimes find it easier to just ask the Linux community. The community is not getting paid to answer your questions and are generally more pleasant and faster to deal with.

you might want to start a new thread , this one is almost 3 years old
and include the exact errors and your hardware
I am guessing that this is SELS sp2
and that you are NOT installing a gui , nor xorg

also the original post is about a 32 bit pae install
is yours a 32 bit on a 64 bit server or a 64 bit SELS


if this server is a raid set up( likely) , depending on the hardware you might need a driver from novell

but without a lot more info , there can only be guesses

Thanks, I was just pointing out that the other members reply was not very helpful. I'll start a new thread if I don't resolve this on Monday.
