    [SOLVED] Error 15: File not found. Help!


    Hi everyone!

    After an update of Mandriva 2009, my system cannot get in the other three partitions anymore (mint,suse, debian). I get an error message (Error 15 File not found) everytime I try to "come in". Although I can access my files from these partitions through my fedora and mandriva. The files are present and intact but I can't seem to pass through the grub since it would just give me the error above.

    May I please ask for some guidance how to make me fix the grub? Or fix whatever is wrong with my system?

    I thank you in advance!

    I am not using Mandriva and don't know which boot loader it is using.
    Does Mandriva use GRUB or GRUB2? Post the contents of /boot/grub/grub.conf or grub.cfg file here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hello Casper,

    I executed kwrite /boot/grub/grub.conf

    When the box opened, nothing was written inside.

    Same result with grub.cfg

    Thanks

    Execute this
    Code:
    ls /boot/grub

    Your last post was from the /boot/grub of Mandriva which you are using to boot, correct?

    Open the "menu.lst" file and post it here.

    Hello Everyone!

    I have a Live CD of Parted Magic. May I please know if this can be used to solve my problem?

    Thank you!

    If I understand your situation, you are still able to boot Mandriva and can also boot into Fedora? How about the windows partition, can you boot it? Your posted menu.lst shows Debian on sda7, Mint on sda8, and Opensuse on sda9. Is that correct?

    Your entries on each system point to a menu.lst file, check to make sure there is a menu.lst file in each of these partitions. You have a menu.lst.old file in your Mandriva /boot/grub directory. You might open that (cat /boot/grub/menu.lst.old) and compare it to the new menu.lst to see what has changed.

    Hi!

    Yes, I am still able to boot Mandriva, Fedora including Windows XP.

    Debian on sda7, Mint on sda8 and openSUSE on sda9. That is correct

    I will be sending the second part in a while because it might take a little time. Thanks.
