Error with grub while updating SLES 10 FCS to SLES 10 SP 1
This document (3656781) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
ERROR: Error 5: Partition table invalid or corrupt
ERROR: An error occurred during boot loader installation.
While the server would still boot fine, grub's graphical splash screen was missing. A text-based grub menu was presented instead.
gfxmenu (/dev/md1, 0) /message
In this situation the menu.lst is pointed to a software mirrored device, which the BIOS cannot recognize during bootup. It needs to be changed to the physical device to be recognized properly during bootup.
The following changed fixed the issue (which was only cosmetic in nature):
gfxmenu (hd0,0) /message
NOTE: This location/device may vary from server to server.
