Grub issue


I am getting the following problem. I just setup raid 1 and have my partitions set for mirroring. When I rebooted my machine, I get a grub prompt.

When I issue the root (hd0,0) command I get the following.

-----
filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0xfd

When I issue the setup (hd0) command I get the following.

-----
checking if exists "/boot/grub/stage1.....exists..... no
checking if exists "/grub/stage1.....exists.....no

error 15: file not found.

I can boot to the rescue disk and get the grub prompt and same errors or to the harddrive. Any direction to get this working would be appreciated.

well DO those files exist? grub has it's own implementation of tab-completion, and probably also ls, so use them to see if it is there or not. in the grub shell, enter "kernel (hd0,0)/" and press tab, see what files it CAN see.

When I entered the following:

kernel (hd0,0)/

and pressed tab it only saw the following.

/lost+found/

now where do I go. Should I try the same with the floppy rescue disk?

well that's saying there are no files there... you can't boot without a kernel to boot to. so you're trying to create a mirror... maybe you've set the blank drive (assuming you have one) as the primary one?

Okay

Can I fix this or do I have to start from scratch?

well it'd help if you explained a little about your system... do you have a dedicated /boot partition? is there data on any other of your linux partitions? what kind of raid is this? software / hardware? what did you actually do to set up the raid.
