Land up with Grub prompt after install

I’ve completed the install and everything appeared to go fine. As requested I rebooted the PC and removed the CD.

On reboot I am presented with

[quote]GNU GRUB version 0.97 (612K lower / 3406272K upper memory)

[Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename.]


I used the Asterisk Now 1.7.1 CD

Any idea what has gone wrong and how I fix this… :question:

Looks like it doesn’t have a kernel configuration set up…

The GRUB prompt is pretty awkward to work with so I would recommend booting off a live CD and checking what you have in /boot/grub/menu.lst

To give you a quick idea to get you going, here is a copy of the menu entries in my menu.lst file. I am running Debian Lenny with kernel 2.6.26:

## ## End Default Options ##

title           Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26-2-686
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-686 root=/dev/hda ro quiet vga=791
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-2-686


Obviously, you will need to change options to suit your system.

Thanks, after googling and looking at your settings, I simply did the following and all worked

root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0)
