amenditman Posted February 11, 2013 Share Posted February 11, 2013 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. To setup grub-bios on a GPT disk, populate the /boot/grub directory, generate the /boot/grub/i386-pc/core.img file, and embed it in the BIOS Boot Partition, run: # modprobe dm-mod # grub-install --target=i386-pc --recheck --debug /dev/sda # mkdir -p /boot/grub/locale # cp /usr/share/locale/en\@quot/LC_MESSAGES/grub.mo /boot/grub/locale/en.mo where /dev/sda is the destination of the installation. All these steps completed without errors. I am at a loss as to why Grub is not loading correctly. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
