SOLVED GRUB INSTALL

Postby dobby9 on Thu May 28, 2009 11:41 am

Reading the installation guide I miss the item if it is possible to write GRUB on a partition .
I like to install Linux mint on sdb3 and install GRUB on sdb3
And add to my existing boot loader the lines

title linux mint
root(hd2,2)
configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst
Will it work

kind regards

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Last screen of configuration during install, button on the bottom right says "Advanced". Click it. From there you can direct grub to be installed anywhere you want.

I used to have an OS installed on sdb but for some reason it wouldn't boot wouldn't work unless I changed hd(1,1) to hd(0,1) though your computer might be different. You'll probably have to guess/check by hitting e in the grub menu and editing the parameters at boot. Once you find something that works, you can change it permanently in your OS.

I would personally just backup your menu.lst file, then run SuperGrub. It's a bootable disk that does a really good job of finding OSs and setting up Grub.
