From within the grub prompt you can type in that lot manually and boot that way. Or you can boot the install DVD in 'rescue' mode and have it mount your system under /mnt/sysimage and the... [by TrevorH]
My computer does not have a working CD rom drive, so I had booted from USB (used UNetbootin to make the USB) to install Ubuntu initially. I had Ubuntu working on my laptop (Gateway 7330gz), started messing around with it, and decided I wanted to start fresh again.
I have my FC11 system set up to automatically download and install updates.
I had to reboot yesterday because of one of these updates. It seems that this update messed up grub. When I rebooted I only got the flickering cursor.

Yesterday, I rebooted the server and it booted up to grub. Screen says 'Minimal BASH-like .... etc'. I've tried booting to the Server rescue mode from the install disk and tried reinstalling grub. I've tried the Boot Rescue Disk, still doesn't boot. I can get in and see all my files via the server rescue mode, but grub will not boot anything. No menu comes up, just the grub cli.
that guy who writes the error meseges :dis:
so anyway ive spent my day off burning a good dvd to use for ugrade to fe dora 17 and at the last moment of install i get this briliant and descriptive error msg saying "there was an error during bootloader installation the system may not boot" at this point i am losing my hair
the system rescue program on the cd seems to work but this grub
How can I reinstall grub in opensuse 11.3? If I use the rescue option during the DVD boot, i get straight into command line. I can't mount my partition. In RHEL, i just type "linux rescue" and then when it boots, chroot /mnt/sysimage and then do what i want to do. No such option that I saw.
