grub error 15 install error
« on: October 24, 2009, 20:15:30 PM »
Hi I use Fedora Core 6 on my Laptop and then I do the Grub Harddrive installation I get the error then boot

grub: error 15 file not found.

I have copied plpbt.bin to /boot/ and added the command-line to menu.lst as seen below

Code: [Select]
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#root (hd0,0)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu

title PLoP Boot Manager Install
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/plpbt.bin

title Fedora Core (2.6.16-1.2080_FC5)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img

What am I doing wrong? and how do I fix it?

Best Regards
Fred

hi,
i think fedora created a boot partition that will be mounted to /boot. in this case you have to use /plpbt.bin instead of /boot/plpbt.bin in your menu.lst. similar to vmlinuz and initrd

you can check if /boot is a partition when you run "mount" without parameter
