    [ubuntu] Re: HELP--No Boot Loader!

    I tried going after the manual install again. But, as before, the installer could not read the partition table, or find the partitions. So, I aborted, rather than make the same mistake again.

    No, I have no 64-bit stuff. Only 32-bit i386. Could it be because I am using two different versions of Ubuntu? The live CD is an old v7.

    No luck. The result was:


    mke2fs 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
    Could not stat /dev/sda1 --- No such file or directory

    The device apparently does not exist; did you specify it correctly?
