[SOLVED] Wont Boot after Install - Grub Error 18

Postby chill on Fri May 29, 2009 9:10 pm

Just downloaded and installed mint 7 today on a brand new hard drive. Live CD ran fine, no issues with the install, but after rebooting, I get the following lines:

GRUB loading stage1.5


Loading Grub, Please Wait...
Error 18

Please let me know what this means and how to fix it, if I can.

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just tried a complete re-install and got the same error message.

Thank you, running on an old P3 board with a 160Gb HD - had to make a separate boot partition to make it work correctly.
