Right... So for the past few months, every time I boot my computer, I've been presented with the lovely Grub Rescue prompt, because it couldn't pind the partition it was looking for.
At the prompt, I've had to type the following to get myself started:
It seems that it's looking for hd0,8 instead of hd0,7 (at least that's what "set" reports when I run it without any arguments before doing the above).
linux (hd0,7)/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda7 ro
I've tried sudo update-grub a few times, and although it seems to be doing whatever it's supposed to do (it doesn't throw any errors at me, anyhow), I'm still presented with that damned Grub Rescue prompt.
This started after I'd used GPartEd to squish back together a bunch of my separate partitions, so probably has something to do with it. XP
I'm in no hurry--I only reboot this thing once in a great while--but I would like to know how to fix it. Any ideas, anyone? Probably some utility on the GPartEd disk or somethin', yah?
