Thread: can't write Grub in MBR

  1. #1

    Default can't write Grub in MBR

    I am trying to install grub in MBR. I have working configuration on my root partion. I tried "grub-install" on MBR but gives me some warning.

    Code:
    /usr/sbin/grub-install /dev/sda
    WARNING! You are trying to invoke the unsupported grub-install script
    with a parameter. To really do this, call grub-install.unsupported.
    You should rather call "yast2 bootloader" or create configuration files
    appropriate for the intended target.
    Also I tried it from Yast but still MBR has Chamelon boot loader.
    (I have chamelon boot loader, I want to overwrite my MBR with current grub configuration on my root partition.)

    I tried using grub-install.unsupported but it did not work either. it says:
    /dev/sda does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.

    I tried grub-editor (kde module) to do the work, but it gives me error:
    grub-install returned and unknown error exit code 1.

    What am I doing wrong?

    That worked like charm. I just typed grub (root) and then followed the instruction.

    Thanks caf4926
