What is the contents of your map.lst file?

 

What partition has your /boot directory stored on it? If not separate, it will be what you allocated to /. I need to know this before I can tell you how to do it.

Below the menu.lst where I 've added " noapic nolapic pci=noacpi " to see if MDV 2008 can boot !

I've added these boot parameters using MDV One live but now I have to record the bootloader in MBR....I think to do a chroot to the / then with Grub command ( that I cannot understand what it is...) write on MBR the loader... With lilo was used this procedure....Can I do it with grub ?

Thanks a lot.

You don't need reload to grub like you do with lilo, your grub entries should mirror that in the menu.lst file without doing anything else.
