Unhappy Urgent : GRUB loading, please wait... then appear "Error 15"


Hi all,

I'm installing Slackware v12.0 just now... after i reboot the machine, appear that message. Can somebody teach me how to solve this problem? or needs to re-install it back?

The problem is that grub could not find a file. What file name did grub say it could not find?

I just thought I would mention that it is usually considered inconsiderate to post two threads with the same subject in different categories in the same forum; then people might duplicate each others effort when replying to you, and you will have a greater chance of getting conflicting answers. Please just post one thread per subject.

How did you get Slackware to install GRUB? I thought LILO was the only choice. Please give more details about your setup---eg how many OSes are installed, order of installation ,etc.

Also, please don't use words like "urgent" here---it won't make anyone move faster.

Hi,

Shucks! When I read the title my heart jumped a beat.

By chance do you have another distribution installed with grub? If so then you will have to edit your menu for grub to include your Slackware installation.
