Does the wiki help you?

It is very well possible that the bootloader GRUB isn't installed in the appropriate hard disk/partition despite showing "/dev/sda" in Setup overview.
If the above is happening and to correct this after the installation has finished, start again from the USB.
And follow the instructions from the manual Restore Grub without a new installation of Pardus.

no luck..this is what happens...


          Pardus Linux (http://www.pardus.org.tr), TUBITAK/UEKAE
 [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.  For the first word, TAB
   lists possible command completions.  Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
   completions of a device/filename. ]

grub> root (hd
 Possible disks are:  hd0 hd1

grub> root (hd1)

grub> setup (hd1)

Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition

grub>

You only specfied the correct disc (hd1) but not the partition (,x).
Look in the wiki, it should in the end read like hd0,4 or hd1,4 or hd1,6 or whatever partition Pardus is on.

You have now only specified hd1, but not hd1,x where x is the correct partition)

Thus after the first TAB (which list the discs as you mentioned above, FIRST:

"Press again the Tab key and the partitions from hd0/hd1 will be listed."

and THEN:

Check for the Pardus partition number by looking for disk format ext3 or ext2fs.
  In this example I presume partition number 4 is the Pardus partition. Change the number when necessary.

Write root (hd0,4) and press <enter>. ( 4 is the Pardus partition as mentioned in the previous item )

Write setup (hd0) and press <enter>. (hd0 is the first hard disk from which the bios will boot)
  When we get 'Error 15: File not found" it is not the correct partition and we can start at 'Type root (' again,
  and when we get "...... succeeded. Done." Grub has been restored in MBR of hd0.

I have re-written the [Wiki page].
And hope Method 1 (=new) is an easier way to get things done. Smiley
