After having partitioned my hard disk (+ran fdisk /mbr) and installed the system GRUB hangs right after displaying the stage2 …… thing.
I booted from a LILO on a floppy disk and mounted the root. Then I check the partition table to see if everything was as should be.
I put grub on a floppy disk but again when I tried to boot grub from the floppy disk I got the same thing, GRUB hangs at stage2 …… message.
The motherboard is a Soltek SL-61D and I flashed it with the latest BIOS. Is this something that has to do with support of on board IDE/FDC controllers?
When I took the same GRUB boot disk on another machine it booted with no problems whatsoever.
