I have a problem with my bootloader. Yesterday i downloaded archlinux base iso to my computer and burnt it to an empty cd then installed base system then kernel but when i try to install bootloader it always gave me an error. I have 2 disks and one of them has xp in it which is hdc1 in Linux partitioning. Other one has 3 partitions, one of them is sda1 which is root partition, sda2 is a swap partition and sda3 is a Linux partition. So i made my bootloader like this :
title Arch Linux
root (hd0,0) ----> which is sda1
kernel /vmlinux26 root=/dev/sda3 ro -----> which is Linux partition
chainloader (hd1,0) +1 ----> which is hdc1
Also when i write my menu.lst file to sda's MBR it wants me to write the full path of root device and i write /dev/sda3 for the root device. If everything is correct how can i solve this problem?
What do you mean sda3 is linux partition? The linux kernel is generally in the root partition, afaik.
Ok i fixed the problem thanks.
What fixed it? Did setting the kernel to sda1 work?
actually i didnt change anything i just reinstalled it again :)
Sometimes that's the easiest way =)
