GRUB fail
« on: July 21, 2010, 07:22:32 AM »
Hi, I've installed the Flybuntu, but GRUB do not progress and do not allow to input any command.

Just "GRUB" with blinking cursor. No reaction for keyboard. ctr+alt+del only

The problem during the first load of GRUB. Windows works perfectly.
Flybook A33i
My usb-dvd wasn't recognized by bios, so i've installed windows using usb-flash. May be smth with it?

ok, so windows is still able to boot.

i can't remember, to so long time ago since i made this. i rember, that one flybook had troubles with grub4dos. finally i supported him to install the original grub to the mbr to use windows and linux.

but you can install ubuntu hardy from usb too and then add the flybook package from my page.

New Ubuntu 10.04 has too bad video driver so it worked in gnome safe mode much faster than in normal. I hoped to install flybuntu and than to upgrade till 10.04
