    GNU Grub version 0.95 (638K lower/515008K upper memory
    [Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB list possible command completions. Anywhere elase TAB list the possible completions of a device/filename]

    Do you get any output if you hit the "tab" key ?

    but most of them pick themselves up
    and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

    Execute this at grub> prompt :

    Code:
    find /boot/grub/stage1
    Post output here.

    Have you upgraded packages recently? Which Linux distro/version are you using?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    If your Linux distribution supports it, Insert the Linux Install CD, reboot the machine and select rescue mode from the boot prompt and then follow Devils Casper suggestion.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
