Re: Install on hp-pavilion-g6-2100 stops at 98%

Mac OS is a mystery to me, but I believe it is UNIX based. dd looks like
a decent command to use.


Then I did the install, but now I have this at startup

And it installed. So that part is ok. Progress.

Same as before

grub rescue>
(hd0) (hd0.gpt6) (hd0) (hd0.gpt5) (hd0) (hd0.gpt4) (hd0) (hd0.gpt3) (hd0)
(hd0.gpt2) (hd0) (hd0.gpt1) (hd0) (hd1) (cd0)

One of those partitions should have the files vmlinuz and initrd.img
on it. Look at the contents of each partition with 'ls (hd0.gpt1)/',
'ls (hd0.gpt2)/' etc to find them. Then at the prompt (if the partition
is (hd0.gpt1):

set root=(hd0.gpt1)
linux vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1
initrd initrd.img

/dev/sda1 becomes /dev/sda2 if the partition is (hd0.gpt2).

Found the 2 files in (hd0.gpt2) (and others post named as old)
Then I did

	set root=(hd0.gpt2)

And it says nothing, but it complains when I do
linux vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2

Unknown command `linux`

What am I missing (or doing wrong) here?

Thanks again !!!!!
