[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


the installation of the GRUB bootloader with (hd0,0) failed with error message, but let me reboot the system anyway... on another occasion i tried to install LILO, after GRUB failed, but i did not get any feedback, if the operation was successful...

i tried several different settings for the GRUB settings... (hd0) which was the default, but didn't work either.

my first guess was "cable select" on the HD was not working as supposed, but BIOS recognized the drive right, nevermind where i put it... also exchanged cables and finaly jumperd the drive as master...

Looks like your bug is fixed in current installer. Would be good if
you could see if it still reproducable and reopen the bug in case.

Thanks in advance,

p.s.: You can get a new installer image in
