    grub doesnt know where your drives or partions are and neither do I from your explanation

    like your grub file and partition table/ fstab
    and why you reinstald grub

    like a "drive' is a big place [/quote]

    hi i would like to know how would you configure grub manually to get the window partition. Would it be the same as the path specified as the boot.ini file in windows. I think this might help the first guys question too
