http://www.linuxforums.org – Hey again guys, I just repartitioned my disk to: Disk /dev/sdb: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0006dbbb Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 1 24918 200153803+ 83 Linux /dev/sdb2 24919 25179 2096482+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sdb3 * 25180 30401 41945715 b W95 FAT32 and reinstalled GRUB2 because I installed XP on the FAT32 partition (forgot to convert to NTFS in Windows setup, will do it again) and it overwrote GRUB2. Now I get the grub rescue prompt and when I try to do "insmod (hd0,1)/boot/grub/linux.mod" I get "Error: no such disk", this is really pissing me off because I know the disk is there, and I know I'm pointing to the right partition. "ls" at the grub rescue prompt gets "(hd0) (hd0,1) (hd0,2) (hd0,3) (fd0)".. Anyone know what the problem could be? (HowTos)
