I have two 500GB drives, and previously I had XP installed and Debian. 6 months ago I replaced one of the drives, and only XP survived. But that's okay. I cleaned up the mess.
I need to setup the Debian again.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMyfljiCz3A This is the reference video... Now I am trying to install Debian 5.0.5 Lenny.
Anyhow. There are four main partitions prior to the Debian installation: 1 for XP, 65GB is reserved for Debian, and 2 others for file storage.
I parted the 65GB for Debian, had a very similar setup (almost identical) as shown in that youtube video.
The setup went fine, but I could not boot from GRUB. I don't see the grub menu at all. I was left hanging with GRUB _ a blanking cursor.
I tried out with the resuce mode using the Debian CD 1:
shell#: cat /proc/mdstat
md1: active raid 1 sad10 sdb10 55472320 blocks [2/2 ][UU] md0: active raid 1 sad7 sdb7 120384 blocks [2/2 ][UU]
shell#: mdadm --detail /dev/md0 (i can do it for md1 as well)
number major minor raidDevice state 0 8 7 0 active sync /dev/sda7 1 8 23 1 active sync /dev/sdb7
I am now in rescue mode, what should I do? Thank you
shell#: df -h
/dev/mapper/acm_main-root Mounted on / /dev/md0 Mounted on /boot /dev/mapper/acm_main-home Mounted on /home /dev/mapper/acm_tmp-tmp Mounted on /tmp /dev/mapper/acm_main-usr Mounted on /usr /dev/mapper/acm_main-var Mounted on /var tmpfs Mounted on /dev
Anyone has a thought on this? At least I have to get back to Windows..... Any help is appreciated!
By the way, grub command is not found in the rescue mode...
