Re: grub command line at boot

Sorry to double post, but I figured I'd ask one more thing. You mention that if I reinstall mint it would solve both my problems? So just to clarify, I should unplug my external drive and my usb drive, boot from the live cd, and install mint on my internal hard drive? Then when I boot up it will tak...

Re: grub command line at boot

Ok, so this just keeps getting worse. I followed your instructions and entered everything in the terminal as you instructed. Here's a copy of my terminal session: grub> find /boot/grub/stage1 (hd0,2) (hd1,0) grub> root (hd0,2) grub> setup (hd0) Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... yes Checking ...

Re: grub command line at boot

The hard drive is connected using firewire. Disconnecting and reinstalling seems like a good idea. I didn't have any problems with the Ubuntu installation. One question. After I install and reboot, will it go straight to GRUB? or will it go to the vista bootloader? Ubuntu booted straight into grub, ...

Re: grub command line at boot

Hmm...that's very strange that it says that. I'll try to explain my current setup. I only have one internal hard drive, but I am attempting to triple-boot.
