    Super Grub Disk CD problem


    Hello!
    I've got some strange problems with GRUB etc...
    so i will try SGD.

    When i boot from the Super Grub Disk Cdrom everything is okay, but when i am in the GNU/Linux menu (Fix Boot of Gnu/Linux (GRUB), Boot Gnu/Linux, Boot Gnu/Linux Directly, Gnu/Linux (Advanced))
    and select something it just flashes a blue menu and then it stands "selectfile XXX" where X is some path to some file.

    I've also tried other versions of SGD with the same problem.

    Thanks for help!

    Welcome to the forums!

    You can find documentation for using the SuperGRUB LiveCD on their wiki pages:

    Yep, I tried the CD on another computer and it worked perfectly. Is there something wrong on this computer that causes this? If so, how can i fix it?

    Could be a dirty cdrom lens. You could clean it with a Philips USA PH62052 CD Lens Cleaner

    YES! I discovered just that in the Super Grub Disk each time i clicked something, the CD/DVD drive started making noise. I did just have to wait until the noise was over and then continue. I was too fast going trough the menues
    But thank you for your advices!
