hey i have a acer aspire one zg5 and will not boot. well starts to boot but just comes up error 17. i can only find info on 'grub error 17' all i get is error 17 on a black screen.... the only thing that i can do is press ctr,alt,del. to start the reboot then same thing over again. I can get into the bios menu and i can get boot menu. i dont have recovery cd (DOH) and cant find a download for it. can anyone help?
and alt F10 doesn't work either. just to make it a bit more complicated
Kind regards Allan
Hi and Welcome !
Which Linux distro are you using? Do you have LiveCD of any Linux distro?
to be honest i have no idea, it's an old version, and i don't have any cds for it... my aunt gave it to me to see if i could fix it and she doen't have any cd's either. there is no sticker on the aos that i can see that tells me either.
i know im great at the info :)
Download PartedMagic LiveCD or USB, boot up from it. Post the output of fdisk -l command here.
