I currently have a PC with hard drives. The primary has Vista already installed, on the secondary I installed fedora9. On installation I selected to have the boot sector of the linux installation on the primary hard drive.
Now when I start the computer, instead of geting grub asking which partion to boot, vista or fedora, it just freezes with the message;
I have put the Vista DVD in and booted from that to hopefully repair the boot sector and start again, however this starts the windows splash screen up and just freezes.
I can boot to the fedora9 live cd that I have, but I am unsure as how to go about editing the GRUB config file, or infact how to access it.
When in the live session, I can see the additional hard drive under /media
and can see the boot sector labelled;
From within the live session I can find the /boot1/grub/grub.conf file, however I am unable to edit it as the default session does not have the required priviledges.
Accessing from the terminal I can su to root, but then I'm unable to get to the boot1 directory as using an ls in the /media/ directory the boot directory shows as /-boot1/ which I'm unable to access as it reports the initial -b of the directory name as an argument to the cd command.
At the moment I'm stuck. I've already had to reinstall windows within the last week trying to get this working.
Any and all help would be apprieciated.
