My RaptorX was partitioned into 3 partitions.
sda1 WINDOWS x64
sda2 LYNX

3rd partition was a swap.
.
.
I deleted WINDOWS x64 and splitted it into 2 partitions.
Before I did this, I edited Boot Manager and added sda3.
.
I can boot into LYNX but Im missing boot splash where all operating systems are listed. Im just getting a black screen with the operating systems.
Sudo Grub can't mount selected partition.
I can root (hd0,3)
but when I run setup (hd0) I get the error:
grub> root (hd0,3)

grub> setup (hd0)

Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition

grub>
 Undecided

I don't understand what you are trying to do with grub.

As root, what is the result of :

Code:
fdisk -l

So you have no problem with grub, being able to boot either Windows or Linux, but you have a textual boot screen instead of the graphical one, is that right ?

Is the bootsplash package installed ?

, is that right ?
No Sir.
My initial problem was not being able to root the linux boot loader to (hd0,3)  Pardus Lynx in sudo grub.
I was able to get the plain menu.txt boot screen and boot all os's by rooting the linux boot loader to (hd0,2) xp32bit and by adding a new sda3 boot entry in Boot manager.

Is the bootsplash package installed ?
Yes it was installed. Good Idea.
I was ready to remove and reinstall the boot splash package and its 97 dependencies but Pisi Package Manager would'nt allow it.
.
Changing the grub boot splash screen is just a matter of replacing splash.xpm.gz in /boot/grub/

You can get the Mortal Combat grub splash and other great splashes at kde-look.org.

Thanks Phix.
