can't boot after installation

Recommended Posts

I installed the iso file to a U.S.B. stick and booted into the liveCD option. Everything worked. I chose to install the operating system to a SATA hard-drive partition. I opted to install the GRUB boot loader to pclinuxos's root partition as I have a boot loader already in the MBR. I couldn't boot, however.

 

I then booted back into the liveCD option to try to install GRUB via the command line. I did:

 

(as root user)

Grub

find /boot/grub/stage1

root (hd1,7)

setup (hd1,7)

 

as the root partition is on sdb8. This did not work. I also tried

grub-install /dev/sdb8

 

Any ideas?

What bootloader do you have in the MBR? This is what the BIOS will boot. Somehow you have to get that bootloader to boot linux.
