still blue screen
still untitled configuration of packages tool

the following command line of linux was saved from the file /etc/default/grub or the parameter 'kopt' from the file menu.lst was used by the original(note from me r previous, i dont know the best translation) of grub. please check that it (this line) is correct and modify it if necessary.
command line of linux :
< then follows a rectangle where i can write stuff>
<ok>

what shall i do?

are you sure i should press enter, even though it asks me to input a command line, and even though that command line is currently empty?

Yes, I'm sure, just press enter. All of this is listed in my previous post. Just press enter is the last step of this configuration. Then you go on to the next command
Code:
upgrade-from-grub-legacy
to make the changes permanent.

PLEASE: Read my previous post, it explains it all pretty easy straightforward.

AND when executing the upgrade-from-grub-legacy keep the following quote in mind.

Quote:
NB! You have to use the spacebar to mark the choice here. DO NOT go on without doing this. It WILL result in your system showing error 15 and being unable to even show a boot menu. If you are running a dual boot system with WindowsXP or Vista, you might have to do additional fixes after upgrading to get it to work.
Kind regards,

Eric

What's written in red applies to the next command you have to run, in order to make the grub changes permanent so that you can boot into the correct kernel at the next reboot.

Are you back at the prompt? Has the first configuration terminated?

Kind regards,

Eric

OK, great, now the next command
Code:
upgrade-from-grub-legacy
Be Carefull, this is the one where you have to read what it says on the screen and make the correct selection. Good Luck!

Kind regards,

Eric

yes i'm back at the prompt (if that's what you call the black screen).
i'm not sure what you call the first configuration, nor if it is terminated, as i have no clue of what i've been doing, but i guess so.
