Re: Installing Grub on new squeeze vm failed

That didn't work! I was able to finish the installation, but upon reboot, grub reports "error: couldn't find boot", and has entered rescue mode. How can I manually boot into my system? I can try installing grub again and updating it.

Yes, but I wonder what happened before when it failed.

Maybe it's missing some sync() call so that data is committed to disk?
