    redirecting GRUB


    I installed Linux on my secondary drive, with Windows on the primary drive, while I was trying to dual boot.

    I have now given up trying to dual boot, after wasting about 5 days!!

    Now I have only the Linux drive connected and would like it to boot.

    But I need to redirect the GRUB.CONF file as it refernces the Linux drive as being hdb and it is now hda.

    I tried editing GRUB.CONF using vi and rewrote hd1 to read hd0 and deleted the Other OS reference, but sadly this didn't work.

    When I boot all I get is

    grub>

    and a flashing cursor.


    Can I rewrite this or should I just re-install???

    I've given up and re-installed Linux AGAIN, but this time I've given up the dual boot thing.

    Thanks for all your help!!!!
