syslinux woes: "Missing operating system"

view full story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Do you have any other device/disk that could be the boot device, instead of sda? Because it looks like you installed the syslinux mbr in sda, yet you stil get grub instead of syslinux, so maybe the issue is that another device is used.What happens if you reboot after clearing the mbr?dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=440 count=1If you still get grub, I'd say sda isn't used as boot device. If you get an error such as "device not bootable" or something, I have no idea why syslinux doesn't work when its mbr is installed... jjacky https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.ph (HowTos)
