GRUB kernel boot error - RH9
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
I have a box to dual boot Win2k and RedHat9. The PC has two HDDs, Win2k installed in the master HDD (hda) and LINUX in the slave disk (hdb1). The system boots with GRUB.
I'm currently running on kernel 2.4.20-6 but wanted to upgrade to 2.6.10. The kernel compiled and all the appropriate files were created and set in place. Please see at the end of message for files listed in /boot.
I thought this grub problem would be fixed in 2.6.10, but is not. Unfortunately I cannot switch to lilo because the RH install is in the second disk and I get an error when running /bin/lilo.
Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks in advanced.
In the grub.conf file I have entries for the original kernel 2.4.20-6 and for win2k, and they both boot fine, and an entry for the new kernwl 2.6.10.
My grub.conf looks like this:
#boot=/dev/hdb1 default=1 timeout=10 splashimage=(hd1,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz title RH26 root (hd1,0) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.10.img title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-6) root (hd1,0) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-6 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-6.img title DOS rootnoverify (hd0,0) chainloader +1 .........................
My problem is when tryng to boot with kernel 2.6.10, The system hangs with this message:
So I booted with a floppy and did this boot: linux init=/sbin/init root=/dev/hdb1 <enter>
But got the same error. What am I missing?
-o- also tried a trick posted in RHs list Using the hex number for major and minor device number in grub.conf: kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-3 ro root=3003
