View Full Version : [ubuntu] Bit of help needed - ubuntu server install failing, grub issues

March 15th, 2010, 08:47 PM
Evening all,

I'm having a bit of an issues installing server (or any other version).

Using one motherboard, processor etc. and a 8Gb hard drive it will install no problem and will run with no issues.

Change to a different motherboard etc. but keep the same hard drive and cd drive, everything appears to install. However come time to boot this machine just says,
GRUB loading.
error: no such partition
grub rescue>

I have tried this back in original computer and it will install and run with no issues, but on the second one no matter which version of ubuntu, ubutu 9.10, xubuntu 9.10 or server 9.10 none will get past grub rescue.

Can anyone shed any light on this for me?
cheers in advance,
