View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.10 wont boot after fresh install - raid grub missing?

March 12th, 2010, 11:28 PM
OK, i had ubu 904 and vista installed on an 80gb drive, i had a spare 80gb drive also. I setup a raid0 config in my bios, then installed ubu9.10 onto it. All was fine until the very end, and then it said grub failed to install.

So i rebooted, and im left with a blinking cursor.

How do i install grub? Ive installed ubu a few times now and never had an issue so now im lost. Thanks for any help :)

I had the same problem, the installer try to install grub on the first partition of the first hard drive
in my case, I was installing from USB key identified as /dev/sda on the raid array identified as /dev/sdb

the blinking cursor you see means that grub didn't install, you have to boot with a live cd and install grub : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=224351
