New install causing existing distro not to boot.


Hi

I have just installed sabayon-64bit on a system that already had manjaro working on it.

Now I find that sabayon boots ok but manjaro gives the following error when trying to boot into it.
Code:
.
.
Kernel offset disabled
...[end kernel panic - not syncing : vfs : unable to mount root on unknown-block(0,0)
I am using grub2 and bios.

Any suggestions please.

percy

You have to buy a linux distro to have a working one.

Well. Sounds like (0,1) or (1,0) might be the ticket. Depending how your multiboot hardware and partitioning is set up.

Maybe even (1,1) or (0,2) even. No telling without more info.

Ok, I'll nibble.

Code:
sudo parted -l
But I may not bite. Busy here.

Thanks for your quick responses on this.

I have re installed manjaro which now has taken over the bootloading, everything boots now.

When installing sabayon I did notice that the process seemed to hang and the installation took around three times as long as the manjaro install. So perhaps it is a faulty disk. So I think I will do a fresh download and install.

I will admit that I did not check the integrity of the disk.

If the problem continues I will start a new topic.
