Problem running Grub on SD card
« on: February 21, 2009, 09:44:17 AM »
Hello,

I'm installing TCL on an SD card. The procedures was smooth all the way completing the creation of menu.lst. When I ran GRUB, since the device is /dev/sdb1, I should type root (sd1,0) right? But it showed me Error 23: Error while parsing number. So I tried root (hd1,0). It showed Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x6. Is this correct?

Next, I type setup (sd1), but it showed me the same error Error 23:... So I type setup (hd1) instead, but it gave an error Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition.

Could you please correct me?

Thank you.

Grub does not use sd - only cd, fd and hd. Type

setup (hd

and press tab to see all options, you should be able to find your SD card that way.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Solved! In fact, even after changing to setup (HD1), it could not find "/boot/grub/stage1". I was wondering why since I could see the files inside /mnt/sdb1/boot/grub. But when I place the SD card on another system, I realized that the SD card is faulty. ??? After switching to another card, it worked now.  ;D

Now, I'm trying PPR .....  :-[
