linux:~ # grub GNU GRUB version 0.97 (640K lower / 3072K upper memory) [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename. ] grub> find /boot/grub/stage1 (hd0,0) grub> root (hd0,0) Filesystem type is reiserfs, partition type 0xfd grub> setup (hd0) Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... yes Checking if "/boot/grub/stage2" exists... yes Checking if "/boot/grub/reiserfs_stage1_5" exists... yes Running "embed /boot/grub/reiserfs_stage1_5 (hd0)"... 18 sectors are embedded. succeeded Running "install /boot/grub/stage1 (hd0) (hd0)1+18 p (hd0,0)/boot/grub/stage2 /boot/ grub/menu.lst"... succeeded Done. grub> quit
In this example the root partition is (hd0,0) as returned by the "find /boot/grub/stage1" command. Use the correct root partition for your system as indicated by this command for the two commands that follow the first one.
Reboot the system and GRUB should come up appropriately.
