I have done a clean install of Fedora 17 on an ancient 32-bit machine. (Believe me, no normal human willl be able to do this). During installation I instructed Anaconda to install the boot loader on the first block of the /boot partition, instead of the mbr, which it did.
But, the second stage of the MBR is still pointing at the old Grub .97 connfiguration of another Fedora installation on another disk, so I can't reach Fedora 17 on a normal boot of sda.
Fortuntely the Grub 2 rescue disk (thank you, guys) locates the Grub 2 installation on the /boot partition -sda7- of the F 17 installation, and so, I can boot it. I can also get to my ancient Win2K installation from the new Grub2 window
How do I get the MBR (same disk) to point at the Grub2 installation on the F17 /boot partition (sda7)?
Thanks for the help.
