I recently installed windows vista to my linux box on partition sda1. I wanted to keep the mbr if I wanted/needed it, so I wanted to boot into my linux installation so I could dd the first 512. Well, I booted from opensuse 12.1 installation disk and then went to rescue system. Then I typed grub at the rescue prompt. I then typed
and I get a Bus Error
all of them get a Bus Error
so what gives? was I doing something wrong?
I looked at the grub manual and they didn’t list that as one of the errors.
I eventually updated my stock of linux live cds to opensuse 12.1
and dd from there. But I just thought it was odd that I couldn’t manually boot into my linux installation.
went without a hick-up
I’m wondering what grub2 will have in store for us.
