Good Morning,

I am having with grub booting my box. For some reason I get Error 15: File Not Found, when booting Gentoo, but M$ boots just fine. The funny part is that if I hand jam the kernel line, it boots fine. Nothing I have tried this past weekend worked as expected. At one point it wasn't finding the boot partition, but that was eventually fixed.

Also, I am not sure if this has anything to do with the problem, but during the boot process the /boot partition does not mount. This is supposedly due to a problem with the superblock, but fsck -y /dev/hda8 produced no errors or corrective actions. The partion will also mount just fine by hand as well.

Any advice is definitly welcome, and thank you in advance.

My Partition table
/dev/hda1 * NTFS (C: Drive)
/dev/hda2 [Logical]
/dev/hda5 /data - VFAT (used by M$ D: Drive and Gentoo)
/dev/hda6 * / - REISER
/dev/hda7 <swap>
/dev/hda8 /boot - REISER
/dev/hda9 /home - REISER
/dev/hda10 /usr - REISER
/dev/hda11 /usr/local - REISER


My /boot/grub/grub.conf is as follows:
Code:

default 0
timeout 30
splashimage=(hd0,9)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Linux Gentoo
root (hd0,9)
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r9 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda6 udev
initrd /initrd-2.6.11-gentoo-r9

title=Windows XP
root (hd0,0)

If your /boot partition is hda8 then your root would be (hd0,7)

I agree, it should be (hd0,7) if the partition table you listed is correct. The same applies to the splash image(assuming you keep it on the /boot partition).

Okay, I am an idiot, that makes total sence, I will make that change when I get home. I will let you know if it works.

Yep, it's confirmed, I am an idoit. I set the grub.conf to reflect (hd0,7) instead of (hd0,9) and it booted up just fine. Thanks again for the help. Although, I didn't notice whether or not /boot was mounted. I'll have to check that out again.
