Error While Parsing Number

For example "(hd0,hd1)". On boot I receive this error message: Kernel (hd0,1)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 vga=nil splash=silent splash=silent [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0x120452] Error 23: Error while parsing number Press any key to continue… I checked the device I've also seen instances where a BIOS upgrade has fixed similar boot problems.

yet now suddenly it decides not to work.... In my case I have Grub on the MBR of my external USB hd and BIOS set to boot first the external drive, then the internal HD. It still mentions a ' set up Grub entry for next boot cycle: FAILED' in the startup status reports though... having a random issue of xubuntu not booting up due to my vid card.

You can manually tell grub were to boot from by telling it what you root(boot) device is root(sd1,1)then tell it what kernal and where your root filesystem is (your kernel might I have no idea since I don't have much info about your setup at this point; in order to get a clearer picture of your setup, how about downloading the Boot Reply With Quote 06-15-2003,05:58 PM #2 homey View Profile View Forum Posts Registered User Join Date Feb 2003 Posts 782 It sounds like grub is having a problem with the grub.conf just before the error appeared I had installed the qt UI for Gnome's Yast, becasue the gtk one got me stuck without possibilty of confirming a necessary confirmation screen for upgrades/downloads/replacement.

Re: BOOT PROBLEM: GRUB Loader stage2 230263 Oct 11, 2005 9:27 PM (in response to 423100) It's not grub> root(sda) but grub> root(sd1,1) Look back at my original post. The time now is 07:01 PM. Since I don't know which drive you are booting on start up, there are three possible entries for booting Windows: Code: title Windows (hd0) root (hd0,0) chainloader +1 title Windows (hd1) Maybe you could change it to something like this.....
