I now tried Syslinux and got a Kernel panic. I got the first few phases of booting though.
Of course you can edit the grub.cfg manually. But you're probably looking for this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GR … ious_entryPS: If you miss GRUB Legacy, Syslinux is very similar: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Be … bootloaderAnd don't forget to mark it as solved.
Did you perhaps run into the problem described on this page?https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … ning_toolsIt says:Note: The first partition created by cfdisk starts at sector 63, instead of the usual 2048. This will cause problems with grub2. grub-legacy and syslinux should work fine.
Perhaps you can try to install it from the AUR? https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=61033I haven't checked if their still is a package in the official repositories. Then again, perhaps you might switch to Syslinux instead of Grub. http://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/syslinux/Cheers
It sounds like you need to rebuild the Catalyst module for your new kernel. I don't have an AMD card myself, but information should be available in the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Catalyst
You don't need to uninstall the MBR portions of grub2, the syslinux install will just overwrite them. Then just remove the grub2 package (after syslinux is set up) if you want to free up the disk space.
