Titel: Grub on USB HDD Bootdisk  BeitragVerfasst am: 09.09.2006, 12:38 Uhr

I followed the instructions from http://biohackery.com/node/4/print to boot enable an external USB HDD using the following commands:

cp -av /cdrom/boot /media/sdb1/

grub-install --root-directory=/media/sdb1 /dev/sdb

Commands appear to work fine but when I try and boot from the USB it sits on a black screen with the word 'GRUB' in the LH corner and flashing cursor - only option is to power off. Having tried the above commands once again I get:

root@1[knoppix]# grub-install --root-directory=/media/sdb1/ /dev/sdb
Due to a bug in xfs_freeze, the following command might produce a segmentation
fault when /media/sdb1//boot/grub is not in an XFS filesystem. This error is harmless and
can be ignored.
xfs_freeze: specified file ["/media/sdb1//boot/grub"] is not on an XFS filesystem
Installation finished. No error reported.
This is the contents of the device map /media/sdb1//boot/grub/device.map.
Check if this is correct or not. If any of the lines is incorrect,
fix it and re-run the script `grub-install'.


The resultant boot is the same black screen. Can someone help please as to why I cannot setup the bootable drive. Thanks.
