[Solved] no Grub after Installation - Thinkpad Edge 525

Postby jansn128 » 30 May 2013 11:36

I installed SolydK successfully (the Installer said so) but it didn't boot afterwards.
So I did boot per live-usb, noticed there was no boot-flag set, so I set it.
Nothing changed.
I checked md5, and tried to install with and without dedicated /boot-partition.
Please help.

First of all: welcome to our forum, jansn128.
I'm sorry to hear that the install didn't go right.
Now, let's see what we can do about that.

In the tutorials section you can find a solution I posted for a similar issue: http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=235
In short: check on what partition you installed root, check where you want grub to be installed (usually /dev/sda), adapt the bash script accordingly, and execute it.

Thank you, I'm writing from my SolydK install now!
But I noticed when I was in gparted after I used your script (don't know about before) my swap partition was an ext4 with a second root on it. I just thought, that's a bit odd so I scrubbed it and made a swap after I booted in this install.

That swap partition was wrong, but I'm glad you got it fixed!
I hope you'll enjoy SolydK.
