Trouble booting ROS

Post by Mammlouk » Sat Apr 02, 2005 5:33 pm

My computer is setup with Suse Linux 9.2 and Windows XP on the master hard drive. Grub is the bootloader. I installed ROS on an extra 6GB hard drive I had (slaved on sam IDE channel) and cannot get it to boot. I've added the following entry to GRUB.

title ReactOS
root (hd1,0)
kernel /freeldr.sys

When I try to boot from the entry I get this:

Multiboot-kludge, loadaddr=0x200000, text-and-data=0x1f000, bss=0x1dbd0, entry=0x20033c
press any key to reboot

Any help is greatly appreciated.

That last line should read chainloader +1 instead of kernel /freeldr.sys

I've tried chainloader +1 and got less than I did with kernel freeldr. Also if you take a look at the wiki, passing freeldr.sys as the kernel is the specified way to load freeldr via GRUB. Either way I got it fixed by moving the hard drive to be the primary hard drive all by itself in another PC and redoing the whole install. Now it boots fine.

Thanks,
Jeremy
