Re: Error 21 with USB drive
Ok, I see what's happening, that I forgot to tell you about. When you use your LiveCD, you have to make sure that you mount the partition prior to using it in GRUB.
What you are seeing when you use if off your hard drive is correct. Once you do the root string it will just return to the grub prompt. Go on to the next step which is the setup.
Sorry about the confusing. If you can run it from your hard drive, do so and based on what you're saying, it should work fine.
Any piece of knowledge I acquire today has a value at this moment exactly proportioned to my skill to deal with it. Tomorrow, when I know more, I recall that piece of knowledge and use it better.
