    [SOLVED] Error 15: file not found

    Okay, I've been using Ubuntu 7.04 and I'm trying to upgrade to Ubuntu 8.04. The install of 8.04 went fine from the live cd. When I tried to reboot the system GRUB started to load and I got this message

    Error 15: file not found
    press any key to continue...

    I installed 8.04 on the same drive I had 7.04 on. Do I need to delet everything on the hard drive first?

    I used "use entire disk" for 7.04 and 8.04. The disk is my boot drive. I also have a second drive on that cable and also an IDE card with my backup drive on that card. I don't have windoze on my puter and Ubuntu is the only OS installed.

    Thankx for any help.

    Thankx for the help Pumalite. I was reading the page you gave me a link to when I thought of a different way.

    I have just 3 hard drives so I unplugged the cable and power from drive 2 and 3 and tried installing Ubuntu 8.04 again. It worked! I didn't have the Error 15 boot problem.

    Then I hooked up the cable and power to drive 2 and booted my computer and Ubuntu saw the drive with no problems. Cept I had to change permissions to access the files of course. Then I hooked up the cable and power to drive 3 and that works too. I found krusader is great for changing permissions.

    This probably isn't the way most people would do it but it worked.
