Dual booting here with seperate HDD`s, each using it`s own native bootloader and selected by Asus Motherboard drive select option.
I have been using my Asus MB provided "boot select" function with Linux/Windows with NO problem for years with Mint 3.1 Celena, Cassandra, and
Bianca. Recently with Felicia (6.0) there now is less than a 50/50 chance that when selecting my Linux HDD, I will recieve an aborted attempt at successful bootup.
I will either bootup OK to desktop, OR (ever more increasingly) I will recieve a failure to boot, with a message eventually stating No /sbin/init found!
After first installing Mint 6.0, I had NOT this increasing problem of failure to complete booting to Mint desktop!
I never have any problem booting up, after selecting my Windows HDD.
As it stands now, I always get to the Mint "splash screen", and know at the sliding "back and forth" green indicator, whether I will have a successfull boot or not.
If it "catches" right away I will have a successful boot. If it doesnt "catch" but bounces back and forth, I will not!
Even though I have been using Mint for "years", I dont have sufficient Linux knowledge or proficiency to solve this problem.
Would someone here on this forum be kind enough to point me in the right direction?
