View Full Version : [ubuntu] No loaded kernel after 11.10 install from USB

I installed 11.10 on an Acer Aspire 9800 laptop and it went well enough I thought. But it just doesn't boot up. I tried various tweaks with grub and finally managed to get to a minimal working grub menu, but then it says the dreaded "no loaded kernel" message.

I recreated grub with sudo update-grub2 and it went without errors, found my kernels it seemed but still I get this error on bootup.

I tried installing a operating system called WinXP but that didn't even find my harddrives so that didn't help things.

These are the results from my boot info script.



Boot Info Script 0.60 from 17 May 2011


============================= Boot Info Summary: ===============================

=> Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 1 of
the same hard drive for core.img. core.img is at this location and looks
for on this drive.
=> Syslinux MBR (4.04 and higher) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb.
