[SOLVED] Manual GRUB install for screwed up Luit Linux install
So I am stuck in the bootloader hell. With a vintage PC :)
Ok, so here's the setup:
There is one HDD, with two primary partitions: 1st for the system, 2nd for the swap. I booted Luit Linux Live CD, and ran it's HDD install script. The Luit Linux is based on Damn Small Linux that uses kernel version 2.4.22. For some reason, it's bootloader LILO install did something wrong and the fresh install wouldn't boot: at boot does this:
By the way, I don't understand why the bootloader texts refer to GRUB, while the install script definitely was installing LILO.
GRUB Loading stage1.5.
GRUB loading, please wait...
I can now boot again with that same Live CD (or any other CD that would boot to Linux), and once loaded, mount the hard disk and check and update it's contents. I'd like to install there as up-to-date GRUB version what that ancient hardware (48MB RAM) can take, and then configure the GRUB to load that install that's sitting on the hdd.
I will be very grateful for any advice. Unfortunately my knowledge of things like GRUB is very poor, so it's difficult to look up advice by searching the internet.
