I have a system with 2 drives. Windows Xp on the first & Fedora Core 5 on the second. The Windows drive got a virus. So re-formated the windows drive re-installed everything. Thought I had copied the mbr, but it was corrupt or did it wrong. So re-loaded the Fedora core 5 several times. It did not install grub at all. Did a grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/sda I even tried grub-install --root-directory=/boot/grub /dev/sda
Now it comes up a grub prompt. Have changed the grub.conf several times.
Somethings work if I manually type in splashimage=(hd1,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz it works!!
so Something is wrong I dunno what is is. is the grub.conf in the wrong place??
I put a '#' infront of hiddenmenu
here is a copy of the grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd1,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
