grub loading stage1.5read error
Hi, I've been trying to get linux up and running on my main machine and i've had no real problems except the inability to boot . . .
I first installed ubuntu 7.04, got the "grub loading stage1.5read error"
I went in on the live cd did sudo grub, set it up and all, made sure it was on the right partition and hdd, same problem, reinstalled ubuntu, same problem, reinstalled grub from terminal, same problem, removed the hard drives that weren't having it installed on, same problem, reinstalled ubuntu again, same problem, reinstalled grub . . . then i installed slackware 12 from cd, same problem!
I have been getting very frustrated at this . .
I used super grub disk, tried to fix linux boot from that, it failed giving me error 15, tried just booting from sgd, didn't work . . .
when it gets this grub message it halts everything, only thing i can do is hit ctrl+alt+del and reboot, no esc, no nothing
Anyone know how i can fix this?? I've searched everywhere and no one seems to know, or they say read the grub manual, I have, it hasn't helped, I don't know a whole lot about linux yet so i can't quite fix this on my own yet . . .
I originally had 4 hdds:
sda - win xp
sdb - win xp/storage
hdc - storage
hdd - linux
currently only hdd (IDE slave) is plugged in
