Help Configuring Grub

Recommended Posts

I created a multipass with a few tools today but I believe I am missing some part of my grub config. As of right now, every tool I have on the multipass (with the exception of Kon-boot and memtest) boots, but then gives me some kind of error related to lacking a root and then drops me into a busybox shell.

On the debian/ubuntu systems, I get this:

(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system 

This is my current menu.lst file:


color red/black white/red
timeout 120

title BackTrack 5
root(hd1,0)
kernel /bt5/casper/vmlinuz vga=0x317 ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw quiet file=/bt5/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper text splash vga=791--

map --hook

title Memtest
kernel /bt5/isolinux/memtest

I know it's a bit of a mess, but I've been trying everything I can think of to get this to work. Any tips?

try

root (hd0,0)

or if you have a 2012 grldr chenall version, use

root (bd)

where bd=boot device

see rmprepusb website for lots of multiboot grub4dos tutorials/menus
