Because Squeeze won't boot now, I hope things above are right
I think I've found a bug.
I'm a new-bee
I read problems about grub, but didn't find similar problem
I use linux so now an then.
My (wanted) system:
/dev/sda1 xp -1- primary
/dev/sda2 xp -2- primay
there is no /dev/sda4
/dev/sda5 ntsf data
/dev/sda6 ntsf data
/dev/sda7 fat 32 data
/dev/sda9 ext3 ment for squeze
Under squeeze sda is called hdc
For years I use osl2000 bootmanager. Just perfect for me.
OSL2000 hides the not active primary partitions. So xp -1- can't see or
access xp -2- and the other way round. Just what I want.
On /dev/sda9 or /dev/hdc9 I installed lenny and grub. Worked great.
Osl2000 boots from MBR and started grub in hdc9
Now I wanted to install squeeze on it. Problems began.
It is a pity that the bootmanager is installed in the last steps. Just
after that you find out that the installation can't be accessed from
Missing operating system
is the message.
A not clean install or clean install, grub legacy or grub2, no
difference: Missing operating system (4 times installing, costs a lot of
Then installing lenny again. /dev/hdc9. Grub2 same problems: Missing
operating system. Grub legacy works immediately fine.
Over a rescue cd, I tried:
sudo grub-install --force /dev/sda9 and
sudo grub-install --force --root-directory=/ /dev/sda9
just warnings but no result. I have to use blocklists.
I couldn't find information on the internet about how to use blocklists
in this case.
Does someone have a link or better a solution?
After upgrading (http://www.go2linux.org/how-to-upgrade- ... to-squeeze
grub was changed in grub2. Grub2 and squeeze now worked both. But now
there is no network access anymore.
Work to do.
Now 2011-01-09, 2 month later I tried again to install squeeze (not
update) Same problems and no linux to boot.
So I think the installing of grub2 is not bug free. Installing Grub
under squeeze is also not bug free.
There are warnings if grub is not installed in mbr. I have not enough
knowledge, but if it works after upgrading, why it is not recommended?
If I remember good,there was also somewhere a warning it would make the
When? During booting or overall? In the first case, no problem. In the
second case. I didn't notice.
(After the upgrading)
Is here a bugfix needed to install squeeze and grub or grub2 correctly
on sda9 or hdc9 without upgrading from lenny?
