    At the grub prompt, try:
    root = (hd0,3)
    kernel = /boot/vmlinuz
    (three separate commands)

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    grub> setup (hd0)
    This installs it to the first sector of the first drive. Then
    grub> root (hd0,3)
    grub> kernel  /boot/vmlinuz 
    grub> boot
    [edit] Kode, you beat me to it...geez, I can't even delete this post now; it's been replied to!
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Solved. After getting Error 18, I went into the BIOS and just put everything back to the default, and now it works.

    Now, I have some work ahead of me, getting my other OS's back. But that is the easy part.

    Thanks for your help Flatline, Kode and Dapper Dan.

    This is the main difference between men and dogs.
