Description of problem:
After running the initial anaconda installation a reboot resulted in the following:
GRUB Error Code 17
Apparently it is having trouble mounting a partition.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run through anaconda and install the system
2.Reboot the machine when installation is finished.
3.Let it boot.
Actual Results: You get the GRUB Error Code 17
Expected Results: Bring up splash screen to boot one of the Red Hat Linux Beta
Actually got the splash screen to come up. I installed GRUB to the MBR rather
than the first sector of the boot partition, which is what I usually do because
I have a Windows NT-based OS on the same HD, and that is what is recommended by
So I understand - everything works fine if you install GRUB to the MBR?
Yes, the problem appears to happen when GRUB is installed to the first sector of
the /boot partition, but it works fine when installed to the MBR.
Does this still happen with test3?
