Thread: Bootloader problems

  1. #1

    Default Bootloader problems

    ok, I set up my hard drive set up per the examples for PMmagic swap 2G, root 20G and the rest for home but I get the following message after the setup and before the install begins - How do I get through this?

    "The bootloader is installed on a partition that does not lie entirely below 128 GB. The system might not boot - what can I do about this?

    I found some older posts on this. The message is: ignore this. Tell it to go on, the others have not met any trouble doing so.
