I have the Asus M2n32-SLI Deluxe board with 2x SATA as RAID1 on the
FakeRAID nVidia SATA controller. F7_64 installed fine and booted fine,
but then I decided to add updates and a good load of applications to the
system. After that the boot hangs at the grub> prompt and that is
basically the point where I need some help.
Other information in bullet points:
- GRUB installed on MBR of FakeRAID
- worked fine several times
- dual boot with XP64
- have a Promise IDE controller with 2 PATA drives present
- the F7 install is on the second parition of the mirror raid
I did try install and setup at the grub prompt, but I have no idea how
the INSTALL_DEVICE is called as it is to be the FakeRAID, which was
I can boot from the install DVD and get the live system, but when I opt
to repair the existing installation I am always told that GRUB will not
be reinstalled, because I did not install any new kernel modules. THAT
is the biggest disappointment. I can live for now with the annoyance to
potentially have to fix GRUB after installing updates/apps, but I don't
even get really a chance....or better to say, I don't know how.
Any help is appreciated.
