View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hard Disk not booting

June 4th, 2008, 05:46 PM
I have bought a new 250GB sata HD.I partitioned it with gparted with /boot as primary and remaining in extended type.I installed feisty fawn.The problem is the hard disk is not booting directly.
I hav to put the CD and select "Boot from first hard disk" option to boot.I want to know whether i hav made a mistake or the problem is with the hard disk.
Thaks in advance.

Did you install GRUB to the MBR or to the /boot partition ?

Thanks for ur reply Dave2k6. I solved it by giving the boot flag to my extended partition using GParted.
