Boot from the USB drive, Press "c" at the grub menu, type
(last symbol is a one)Code:find /boot/grub/stage1
and post the output.
If the numbers in the output are different than what you used the last time:
Press "Esc" to get to the grub, try the instruction from my previous post again, using the new numbers for "root" and "#groot"
If this did not work:
I would like to make sure that I understand the situation correctly and request some more information (in addition to the output of "find /boot/grub/stage1")
1) If you boot from the windows drive, to you boot directly into Visa?
2) If you boot from the USB drive, you get to the grub menu. But trying to boot "Ubuntu" gives grub error 17.?
3) Do you have more than two hard drives?
4) Boot from the LiveCD, go the "Computer->Places". One of those icon is for your ubuntu partition. Double click it. Browse to "/boot" and than to "/boot/grub/". Open the file "menu.lst" and post the content. Also post the output of
(l is a lowercase L)Code:sudo fdisk -l
This can be easily done my editing "menu.lst" (change "timeout 10" to "#timeout 10" or by installing "startupmanager".So if I want to instal it on my second partition on my computers harddrive but I don't want it to boot at all unless I manually boot it. How would I go about doing that?
