No Windows, no Gates, Apache inside!!! just before the error appeared I had installed the qt UI for Gnome's Yast, becasue the gtk one got me stuck without possibilty of confirming a necessary confirmation screen for upgrades/downloads/replacement. However, I checked the version and there has only been 1 new release since the one I currently use. But you did not use code tags, so it makes it difficult to read. -- Cheers / Saludos, Carlos E.

That means the USB drive is hd0 and the internal HD is hd1 as far as grub is concerned.Alternatively, if Grub were on the MBR of my internal drive and BIOS This happens when you try to embed Stage 1.5 into the unused sectors after the MBR, but the first partition starts right after the MBR or they are used by EZ-BIOS. Im still in the process of converting over but i still need my other partition.
