View Full Version : "Error: couldn't read file" from grub

Hi there.

Just started getting this when selecting to boot from grub. Was fine until a few hours ago when I did a apt-get upgrade.

Testing system -

64bit intrepid upgraded to jaunty with ext4. Kernel 2.6.28-7

Funnily enough if I choose an older intrepid kernel it'll boot but obviously dies when mounting the file systems as I guess they are not ext4 aware.

Booted up with an ext4 aware rescue cd and the disks check out fine and all the kernel files its looking for are there. I did a reinstall of the kernel but with no luck.

Any clues?

Thanks, Mike.

Solved by a boot into the rescue disk and then uninstalling grub2 and putting grub back on
