This step isn't necessary, it's only a convenient way of finding which partition grub's stage1 is on. If you know which hard drive and partition /boot/grub is on, you can simply bypass the find step, while following the other steps in catlett's guide, and plug in the proper values for the root (hdX,Y) command.Originally Posted by catlett
e.g., if you've only one hard drive and /boot/grub is on the first partition
e.g., if you've only one hard drive and /boot/grub is on the second partitionCode:root (hd0,0)
Code:root (hd0,1)No worries, glad to be of help. Even if most people probably have grub on the MBR, it's nice to have mention of how you can put it on a partition.Originally Posted by catlett
Though if I knew it was going to be tacked on to the guide I'd have done a better proof read for grammar and coherence.
