... What I have is a CentOS 5.6 x64 live CD.
I found one article here: http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/5.2/I ... oader.html
I am lost on the first two steps:
1. Boot the system from an installation boot medium <= OK
2. Type linux rescue at the installation boot prompt to enter the rescue environment <= how do I get to a boot prompt?
If I hit space or tab am given 4 options
Boot (text mode)
Boot from local drive
and if I choose the first two, I get a grey screen with the first line being black that has white text that says "Memory for crash kernel... nowithin range) and then it prints out a dozen or
so more lines and says "Enterning non-interactive startup..."
Thanks, I downloaded the SuperGrub2 disk and it presents me with a menu that provides information about my system, but there is no option to "Install grub". Any ideas? I had assumed it would let me install grub.
Basically I can see that grub can be installed using a few commands at the command line and editing a .conf file. This should be possible using a CentOS CD (full install in rescue / command line prompt mode, or by using a live CD), however because of they way the scripts are setup it is not now possible. /usr/sbin/grub-install needs to find /sbin/grub but it cannot because 'grub' is hardcoded in the script to be /sbin/grub and not /usr/sbin/grub where it really lives.
Any way around this? the scripts cannot be edited on the live CD boot or on the full install DVD boot and going into rescue mode.
Maybe I can download Fedora or Ubuntu to get grub installed,
not sure but you would think a disk labled "SuperGrub2" would allow the installation of grub on any hard drive it finds.
Any additional help would be appreciated.
