1  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Problem with grub Pardus on: April 06, 2007, 19:32:52 PM
XP boots just fine, only Pardus won't start (gives a error 17: cannot mount partition). The grub works for so far, that I get vertical stripes in the screen and that I can start XP.

I understand what you are saying. Pardus on the live cd looks really nice to. But if I see all solutions miserably failing in a terminal, I feel like a donkey. Don't know what to do, don't know what I can do, asking myself if I ever get the hang of this all...?! But I believe that once you get the hang of it/Linux/Pardus, it's 1 milion times better then Windows. But thats the thing with Windows, why Microsoft is so big: every donkey can use it (and if it fails, reinstall the donkey).

thanks for the reply.
But I get a message if I want to change the boot file (not in the terminal, with the hd(1.0) thing) that he doesn't allow to save. He doesn't ask for a root user... but how can I log into a rootuser with a Pardus live CD? If i choice 'use other account', I can use root YV1 (or something like that) and about of 8 other accounts with root in it. But if I change the account to root, I get the kernel.

In the kernel (or terminal) the files are not found (cd /mnt/hdb1/boot/grub/). Btw on my keyboard is with the live cd pardus the stripe key (next to the zero -) the / and the / key is the stripe (-). really strange. I was able to get into a kernel with grub, by typing 'grub'. Don't know if that will help?! But anyway, which steps do I have to make to fix this? And after this installing the vga and network drivers... pfff, harder then I thought  :roll:

hi there!

I always used Windows XP on my PC. But it went wrong so much times, that I though: give Linux a chance. So I did. I browsed through the several distro's and choice Pardus to install (also because it's a good distro if you are used to XP). The installating went perfect, nothing wrong.

But the grub, the bootloader, gives problems. I get a message when the grub starts up:
error 17: cannot use mounted partition.

The only luck for me then was, that XP still started (otherwise I did'nt had a OS). I searched with google for this problem, till I found a solution on this forum (the Dutch part, I am Dutch too). So I thought my problems were over. I tried the solution, but it didn't work.
The solution was: start Pardus up with the live cd. Then you enter the root harddrive of pardus and search for the file boot.conf in the boot map. Within this document, everything what has to do with linux, you have to change hd(1,1) into (hd1,0). And in splashimage I had to change hd(0,0) into hd(1,0). That last change was needed because the grub looks really nasty with all kind of vertical stripes through the screen.

Really nice to have such a solution. The only problem the Pardus live cd gave me, that it refused to save the chances in the file I made.
As a second solution, I found commands that I had to type in the terminal. This were the commands:
sudo su
root grub (hd0,3)
setup (hd0)

but also this didn't work. after sudo su the pardus live cd asked for a password. It wasn't 'guest' of 'root', or even my own rootpassword of my pardus installation. No solution here then.

Now my question to you (I ask this in the English part of the forum, in hope of more (usefull) reactions): how can I make the grub load pardus (and windows if I like) correctly?
