Note that the disk ordering you see in Grub has nothing to do with the sda,sdb,... Browse other questions tagged arch-linux ext4 boot-loader grub-legacy or ask your own question. At least that's how I understand it Error 17 looks to me like GRUB doesn't recognize the disk formatting as one it can use. And yes when i boot from the original hdd it loads Windows without GRUB. 12-17-2007, 06:05 AM #4 Guardian-Mage Registered Member Join Date: Dec 2007 Posts: 7 OS:

In one little line that's not very obvious, it'll say something like "GRUB will install to ..." and there will be a little tiny box saying "hd0". http://imagextension.com/grub-error/grub-error-18-selected.php I think most howtos "find" stage1 or stage2 instead of grub.conf, which is somewhat unique to rpm-based systems (i.e., Debian/Ubuntu have menu.lst (old) or grub.cfg (new)). For some reason GRUB doesn't configure itself correct when you change it's location. You have grub legacy in mbr of sdb, pointing to sdb1 which is your / (root) partition where you also have your grub files.
Under Linux, the ordering of sda, sdb, etc., depends on the order in which drives are detected, which at boot time often depends on the order in which the drivers are You'll learn a lot today.FP:E5F8 7DBA 8128 9ACB 75F7 7279 BE34 AB66 76D9 16DEKEY ID:76D916DECurrently running ArchBang / LinuxBBQ / Funtoo (FunBang?) / FreeBSD / SlackBang Current 14.2 Offline #18 2011-10-06 Hard disks and OSes are currently independent. /dev/sda drive has got a Windows XP MBR and /dev/sdb has got Grub installed. useful reference I'm no Linux expert, but I've installed Linux (Ubuntu, PCLOS, Mint) twenty times or so to several different PC's.

I've read somewhere that it could happen that it sometimes changes.One thing you can try, I don't know if this will work. Therefore I couldn't just format the whole drive and re-partition it for Mint. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/grub-customiz â€¦ luded.html Makes things a whole lot easier to look at. core.img is at this location and looks for (,msdos5)/boot/grub on this drive. => Grub Legacy (v0.97) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb and looks on the

I wonder if there could be some kind of confusion about which is sda and wich is sdb. Things are kind of wobbly (it assumes the system has exactly one drive inside, for example) but everything installed just fine.
