[ot] grub with 2 hard disks (was [OT] Grub)
Ok, I was finally able to boot /dev/hdb and sees "GRUB" on the monitor.
But that's all. Seems like the thing hang or something though a cursor
I suppose I should be seeing "GRUB Loading stage2........" like
what the grub boot floppy does.
Have checked out "info grub" but couldn't find information on this.
Any hint to what this problem might be?
Another thing I can do is to install grub into the mbr of hd0 but don't
really want to do that as this is a company pc not mine. Don't wanna to
change /dev/hda's mbr held by nt.
Current tasks had been:
Installed grub into mbr of hd1:
grub> root (hd1,0)
grub> setup --prefix=/grub (hd1)
doesn't work, nor does this:
grub> setup --prefix=/grub (hd1,0)
All I see is still "GRUB".
(For purpose of clarity, the previous problem of os not found was due to
the fact that I did not change the bios bootup sequence. I had to specify the 2nd harddisk as the bootup disk instead of the first in bios.
My pc is a IBM 300 GL.)
P.S.: System is now testing. Broke xserver btw. But I want to settle grub first.
