SOLVED LM18.3 boot fail after install

Post by stanley82 » Wed Mar 07, 2018 10:33 pm

Hi, I installed LM18.3 and used all of the 250Gig drive. I would not boot so I ran boot repair utility from my LIVE Partition Magic live flash. That fixed it and it now boots and I'm very pleased with it.
About my hardware.
I have one sata 250Gig drive on the mother board and an 80Gig IDE on an add on expansion board. The IDE is not supported in BIOS but I had both LM18.1 and Debian8 on this IDE. So so maybe the original problem was it failed to put a boot sector and grub2 etc on the sata drive since maybe it existed on the IDE drive where bios could not get it. What do you experts think? Yes I know I'm a hardware junkie and expect magic. Regards Ian.
