Grub & Lilo
I have removed fedora core 5 by formatting fedora's section on hard disk, and installed PCLinuxOS on it's area, but in the install instruction they say that "If there is Grub boot loader installed as boot loader, you shouldn't install Lilo because it makes problem with overwriting Lilo on Grub."
so I have rebooted my machine without Lilo, but when I boot there is black screen
I have win xp at mnt/win_c
and PCLinuxOS at mnt/pclinuxos.
can anyone help me?
If it were me, I'd just remove GRUB from the MBR by booting with a Windows emergency boot disk and running: fdisk /mbr
by booting with the Windows XP installation CD and from the recovery console typing: fixmbr
Then reinstall PCLinuxOS, this time with LILO.
Otherwise, you could chroot into your PCLinuxOS install by booting your pclinuxos cd, then opening a konsole.
su to root and type these commands (with "x" being where you put your pclinuxos installation, such as /dev/hda3)
From there, you can edit GRUB as needed to reboot with PCLinuxOS.
mount /dev/hdx /mnt/hdx
mount -t proc none /mnt/hdx/proc
mount -t none /dev /mnt/hdx/dev -o bind
thank you very much, ozar!!
