    After FC2-install, I get the black and white text of GRUB


    Usually the proper GRUB is a colored blue and white window.
    I got a black and white with a bunch of GRUB commands and a

    grub>

    prompt.

    What is this black and white version?
    What does it mean?

    Actually, the black and white version is the default. The white and blue one is caused by a splash image imposed by the default Fedora Core configuration for GRUB.

    Getting the default B&W version and just the prompt from a fresh Fedora Core installation means that GRUB can't find its configuration file.

    How did you install this FC2 version? That is, is there some special hardware in effect (like SCSI or S-ATA disks), and how did you partition the hard drive?
