Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 547976
boot fails after a imac 27 inch
Last modified: 2009-12-16 15:47:53 EST
Description of problem:
I was able to boot and install the x86_64 dvd version on a 27 inch imac, but the resulting system will not boot.
I tried both refit and holding alt during the boot. Both give a message about no operating system being present.
Syncing mbr with refit didn't help.
Reinstalling grub using the dvd rescue feature (while chrooted) fails with
"The file /boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly"
I tried both with a single / partition (ext4) and by adding a ext3 /boot.
