Titel: RC4- Installation Problems  BeitragVerfasst am: 12.09.2006, 05:00 Uhr

Hello all,

I am unable to install RC4 onto to my machine (desktop- AMD 64- 512MB RAM).

I have partitioned the hard drives and allocated 20GB for Kanotix.

I followed the routine procedure of installing ( something i have been successful doing on a few diffrent machines). I have installed GRUB to MBR.

The Kanotix Installer Dialog box says the installation is complete.
When I restart the my machine the GRUB does not pop up. I have WinXP and it gets loaded up. The dual boot screen does not come at all.

I reinstalled it again, on some suggestions from IRC. But no success.

When I put the live CD and try to give a restor GRUB command.
It returns as error saying GRUB returned an error1.

Please help......

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
tronix_utSahi,

We need to know more about your system's configuration. What drives do you have and how are they connected to the computer?
Master and slave drive(s) of primary and secondary IDE channel? SATA drives?

Please also post the output of
Code:
sudo fdisk -l

Apparently, the smaller hard drive (hdb) is configured as "slave drive" at the primary IDE channel. Which drive is hda, i.e. master drive at the primary IDE channel? What is the BIOS boot sequence for these drives?

hdb and sda both hold windows formatted partitions. On which partition is your windows install and where is windows bootloader ntldr located?

Hello,

There is no master drive on my system.

The BIOS boot sequence: The first boot device is my CD ROM
The second boot device is my SATA HDD.


My windows is installed on sda1 partition of the SATA HDD.

Can you please tell me what is windows bootloader ntldr.
Where can I find it.

Thanks for all the help rendered.

ntldr should be on the partition where you installed windows. Sometimes people manage to install windows on a partition that isn't marked as "active", and the windows bootmanager ntldr is located on a different partition. But this doesn't seem to be a problem here.

Can you reinstall grub without errors if you disconnect hdb before booting off the LiveCD?

Hello,


I removed my second hard drive - hdb and installed kanotix and it worked well.

I got the dual boot screen for WinXP and Kanotix.

Also, I later connected my second hard drive- hdb after the installation and all is working well now.

Thanks a lot for the help.

Could you please explain the logic behind this excersie?

Regards,
tronix_utSahi

I suspect your drives aren't set up properly. If you attach a single drive to an IDE channel it should be configured as "master drive" (=hda).

Hello,

I have purposely configured the harddrive as a slave by setting up the appropriate jumpers at the back of the HDD.
