    Everex EEE Upgrade Grub only Shows Memory Test.


    Alright i got a friend with a netbook everex cloudbook. Comes with the gOS (based on ubuntu). From what my friend described...it was updating to 7.*.* etc. Idk wth that could be . Since all i know is Jaunty is now out for desktop and idk. But anyways, now when he boots the only option in grub is the memory test. There's no CD drive on it so i can't live boot anything. SO any help or suggestions?

    Highlight Memtest option in Menu and press e. What does it display? You can add correct root, kernel and initrd lines there only.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Select kernel line and hit e again.
    Type this
    Code:
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda1
    Press Enter key. Press 'b'.

    Im thinkin maybe the partition got entirely deleted or something. No cd drive so can't isntall off that might search out an old thumb drive and try installing of that. (But being able to recover this would be better). Thanks so far devil, anyother idea's?

    Type kernel /boot/ and hit TAB key. Check if auto completes vmlinuz filename.
    We have to type correct vmlinuz filename ( its Linux kernel ) and other options in kernel line.

    Or perhaps the memory test is on (hd0,0) and the os is on (hd0,1) should i try changing that too? Well..i'll go for it and let ya know...worse to worse i'll just change it back,

    Yeah i think i tried that already but i'll tryagain.




    Edit : It says
    Possible files are: memtest86+.bin grub

    Doesn't look good
