Ever since I tried Karmic 9.10 grub2 has messed me up good . . .
I now just want to go back to 9.04, but now with a new install to USB drive of Ubuntu 9.04 or Xubuntu 9.04 with
the good ole' grub - well - things have changed leaving me with a boot to the " grub rescue> " prompt . . .
Any ideas ? . . . for the way to finish the boot from here . . .
I have used these commands alright . . .
and following the advice from a google search I set prefix but that was obviously wrong so I tried this improvement . . .
grub rescue> ls
(hd0) (hd0,5) (hd0,1) (hd1) (hd1,5) (hd1,4) hd1,3) (hd1,1)
and now get . . .
grub rescue> set prefix=(hd0,1)/boot/grub
But . . . should I set prefix different though . . . ? These are ls results . . .
grub rescue> set
grub rescue> ls (hd0,1)/boot
./ ../ System.map-2.6.28-11-generic abi-2.6.28-11-generic config-2.6.28-11-generic
memtest86+.bin vmcoreinfo-2.6.28-11-generic vmlinuz-2.6.28-11-generic
Any ideas as I experiment to further nudge this along to the usual and expected 9.04 boot screen ?
grub rescue> ls (hd0,1)/boot/grub/
./ ../ device.map stage1 stage2 e2fs_stage1_5 fat_stage1_5 jfs_stage1_5
minix_stage1_5 reiserfs_stage1_5 xfs_stage1_5 default installed-version menu.lst
Thank you very much.
P.S. . . . obviously NOT a very fast boot sequence, eh ?
