I'm trying to install FC17 on a machine and I keep geting a bootloader error at the end of the install. Then when I reboot, it drops me to a grub prompt. I had FC14 installed on this machine before with no problem. Some details below
installed from: usb cd/dvd drive
Install: FC 17 with minimal install
Disk: one disk only. I partition as sdb2="2G of swap" and sdb1="/ rest of disk"
I also tried using a /boot partition but it didnt make any difference.
As a experiment I tried something else. I let Fedora choose the disk partitioning and it used a LVM and made the partitions its own sizes. This ended up working with no problems. I cant use a LVM for this though. Anyone have a solution that doesnt include "Just use a LVM"?
