  1. You must have done some house cleaning, since I don't see my somersaulting penguin anymore. I've been concentrating mostly on cleaning out my email inbox which fills up real fast on a daily basis. It keeps me pretty busy. Can't keep up with it. However, as time goes on, things break. Lost my favorite HP laptop. I got hyjacked and they destroyed my computer. I'm now using a Toshiba laptop, and attempted to install PCLinuxOS (latest version) in the machine, using a USB connected hard drive. I was using the live disk version of the OS, and thought that I would install it in the outboard hard
  2. I'm back (http://forums.scotsnewsletter.com/index.php?showtopic=59742entry365001). This morning the CentOS5.8 rebooted itself for reasons unknown.

  3. I am tired of fooling around with Virtual Box. I would like to install some Distros to my hard drive. Most of the ones that I have tried(All flavors of Mint) and many more have crappy looking Grub Boot Loaders . Most of them are not graphical. How can I add say Mint 14.1 and us PClos 64 bit Grub?
  4. When I do a Windows 7 image it does not backup the Grub in the boot loader. After I perform a image restore all I have is the Windows 7 Login. How can I restore GRUB. I have The Ultimate Boot CD but have never used it. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Just installed ArchLinux on a laptop and it will boot if I start from the install CD and choose "Boot existing OS" option. But I cannot get it to boot any other way. Obviously, Grub is not being detected and the Bios falls back to the boot options menu. When I choose the hard drive from that list it tries but comes back to the list every time. Basic configuration BIOS GPT bios-boot partition in sectors 34-2047 as recommended Can't figure this out and I've been trying most of last night and today. Reading all wiki pages and install guides, searching forums and google. I'm just not a
  6. Just did a fresh install on my desktop workstation. When I boot, the system does not find the bootloader and fails to boot. If I intervene and use the boot selection popup menu in my bios and tell it to boot from the hard disk, it boots fine. The motherboard is bios and the hard drive is partitioned with a GPT, bios-boot partition, and a physical volume containing the volume group and logical volumes. It seems as though Grub did not install to the bios-boot partition correctly. All these steps completed without errors. I am at a loss as to why Grub is not loading correctl
  7. Hi. I have a pc with Debian and Ubuntu where sda3 is free and I want arch on it. I have Debian managing grub 2 on MBR. When I installed Ubuntu on sda2 I made Ubuntu install grub on sda2 and then on Debian I run 'update-grub' and it found Ubuntu and added it to the menu. Now with arch, which method should I follow? Thanks Guillermo
