redxine Posted August 1, 2009 Share Posted August 1, 2009 I've been trying to get grub running on my flash drive with grub4dos in Ubuntu Linux. I downloaded the zip archive and found that bootlace.com is a native executable. So after formatting it as FAT32 I ran bash$ sudo ./bootlace.com /dev/sdb Disk geometry calculated according to the partition table: Sectors per track = 63, Number of heads = 255 Success. and then copied the grldr to the root directory, created a new menu.lst file and threw it into my desktop to boot up and get: Press hot-key to boot previous MBR, any other key to start GRUB... Timeout : 0 Try (hd0,0): EXT2: Try (hd0,1): EXT2: ....... Try (hd2,3): invalid or null BIOS: Drive=0x0, H=2, S=18 where it continuously reads/writes to the flash drive from there, but nothing else happens. What is being done wrong? I tried loading grub with grub-install but that didn't help any. I'm guessing it's an action handled by PEtoUSB, but I could be wrong. Any thoughts? EDIT: Sorry, this should have been under questions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
