Problems with GRUB and MBR
I'm having some rather weird problems with GRUB and my MBR. I've tried to install a Linux system twice now, and each time I do, when booting grub, I get an error 15.
I started getting this error after removing an 80 GB hard-drive from my computer, and switching my main hard-drive to slave ( my DVD rom as the master ). My initial installation of Ubuntu would not boot, even if I got Super Grub Disk to get passed the error 15, I still got an error 17.
Well, so I tried just reinstalling grub to the MBR hoping that would help, but it didn't. I tried resinstalling Ubuntu hoping that maybe it would solve it on its own fruition, but it didn't. I've just installed Debian Etch, and the same story, but this time using Super Grub Disk I was able to boot into the MBR and load my OS, but only after comletely repartitoning the drive, and choosing to boot from the MBR in Super Grub Disk.
I'm not sure why Super Grub Disk can boot the MBR, but the GRUB I have configured cannot.
ls of /boot/grub

Anyway, can anyone help e figure out what my problem is? It is very weird.
