HiI've installed Centos 6.3, only to find that after POST, GRUB acts as if the centos install doesn't exist. Centos is certainly there on the 26G hdd partition. I instal... [by Tabby]
I recently download centos 6.4 minimal 1386 from http://centos.mirror.net.in/centos/6.4/isos/i386/ and installed it on my old Pentium4 32 bit machine at home. It has got one 80gb HDD and splited into 3 partitons. Two of them are ntfs filesystem consist of Windows XP present in them since long before. I made the third partition to ext4 and installed centos 6.4 in it.
Currently setting up a new computer that will run Centos 6.4 and Fedora 19.
Which distro should I install first, or doesn't that matter? I see that Centos uses Grub while Fedora uses Grub2. Might it be a good idea to install Centos first, and then when I install Fedora Grub will be upgraded?
I've been trying several combinations of OSX, CentOS to try and get CentOS
installed on an old iMac. I finally first installed OS X, then installed
CentOS in the open space after OS X. With refit installed and selecting
CentOS, it starts booting but get a screen that a boot device can't e
found. So I then install Xubuntu with the option to replace OS X.
I am having a very strange problem installing CentOS 6 that I've never encountered before. I've followed these same steps thousands of times before, but within the past couple weeks I've had two separate servers that would boot to a grub prompt after a fresh CentOS 6 install.
I have tried more than half a dozen different combinations of the "color"
command in my grub.conf file, and see nothing but black and white.
* a problem with the Centos grub command?
* a problem with grub figuring out how to do color on my hardware?
* a true-false day, when everything is either true or false, no in between
grays, and no color?
scratching my head,
