Can't boot a native install with Loader 6.05

Post by R0Bzombie » Mon Aug 07, 2006 2:07 am

When I boot the Loader 6.05 I can't select Native, I can only select dvd/cd web boot, and other things exept native.

When I boot with Loader 5.11 it's ok but I'm getting an error with pro v4.0a

The error is:

Code: Select all

Partition /dev/hda2 is mounted with write permissions, cannot check it
Thank you

Does the partition /dev/hda2 have a bootflag?
Boot from Resctoox and do 'fdisk /dev/hda2' 'p'
look for the * after /dev/hda2 :D

Code: Select all

#vi /mnt/hda2/ect/fstab
/dev/hda1 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda2 / reiserfs defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

The command is;
# fdisk /dev/hda
then "p" to print.
