GRUB woes on installation
Until last weekend I had a happily working dual-boot system, using 2 hard disks, running Red Hat 9 and Windows ME.
I decided to upgrade my Linux installation to Fedora core 2. After an intial problem with a USB modem, which caused the installation to hang, I did a full installation of Fedora on the linux drive. During the installation, a warning appeared saying that a partition table was found to be misaligned which might cause a ("fixable") problem with some boot loaders. I clicked the "ignore " button. Sure enough, on subsequent booting up, GRUB was unable to load and failed with "GRUB read error". Since then I have tried to reinstall Red Hat 9 but am experiencing the same problem. During this process I have re-formatted the linux drive, so can only guess that the problem partitioning is on the Windows drive (however it worked before!).
I checked the grub.conf file and I think it's okay (though I'm a relative newbie).
Any suggestions of what to do next would be much appreciated. Especially how this GRUB error is "fixable". Thanks very much.
