The tale of Gentoo, Grub and DualBoot
Well, I wanted to install Gentoo on my system
And I had some spare time so I thought lets start building.
Well, everything went fine during the install.
But when I rebooted the system I got an error.
Grub doesnt load the Splash Image. Well I can fix that myself but..
When I try to boot Gentoo I get: "Error 17" and when I Google for error 17 I get that I have to config Root right.
So, I double check. sdb = linux sda = windows.
root = (hd1,0)
Why do I get this error? Thanks
Gentoo & the Infamous Grub Problem
I hope you got your problem fixed. I have a system with a controller card and 2 SATA drives and 2 SAS drives. I finally did get it to boot, after a few tries.
But regardless, I've installed Gentoo so many times, I could probably do it in my sleep, but grub invariably will not work right for some reason quite often. Sometimes it's because MTAB is not correct, or empty. I've learned most of the little things that seem to affect grub, but at times, I think it's just a matter of experimentation.
The gentoo forum does have a very long "grub error" thread that can be really helpful too.
Good luck !
