I am trying out a few different types of linux and thought I would start with Mint. I have a new 500g drive that I have partitioned into 5 logical partitions using gparted: sda, sda1, sda3, sda4, sda6, sda7 and sda5 (I didn't name them!) sized 84, 84, 84, 79, 165 and 4.3 (swap) respectively. where sda is the physical drive. The 165 drive is going to be for file storage to access across the different distros. I have used the livecd to install on sda1 as "/" and rebooted. After reboot I get this error...
Boot Failure: "error: file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found"
I tried to reinstall with the livecd setting the mount point as "/boot" and I get an error of "No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu."
How do I fix this?
