Grub Observations and Possible Solution
Grub will only boot linux O.S's that installed grub it's self without chainloading. Will chainload other O.Ss though.
Grub will not boot any O.S manually. Reads error of not recognized file system.
Basically it looks like stage 2 will not work except for the O.S that installed it. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
I have never been big believer in GRUB.
When I try to manually boot I get the error (Kernel Panic-not syncing :VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown -block(104,3) ).
I have had major issues with grub multibooting on three different machines with Mandriva ,Ubuntu and Fedora/CentOS. All it will do is boot the distro that installed it or chainload the others.
Grub does not run the shell the same way when it reads the menu.lst file or is used interactively. I think when the OS builds grub it hard copies stage one so it will find stage 1.5 or 2. So if you reinstall grub it does not configure where it should go but makes it's self look in the last place it looked for stage 1.5 -2.
Thanks for all of the Replies!
Especially the commands. Nothing better than being turned onto a new command!
