Default Kernel problem.

Hi all,





When I select the 2.6.24-18 kernel in GRUB, then I get this message:





Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition





Press any key to continue.....





So I press a key and it brings me back to GRUB.


I can only use the 2.6.24-16 kernel to boot the system.





Can someone please help me to use the new kernel ?





My system:





Processor: AMD64 3000+


Graphics card: ATI Radeon 9250


Hard disk: Maxtor 80 GB.





Thanks in advance.





Walter Kerkhofs

First thing that comes to mind, check your menu.lst. You'll find it
in /boot/grub. Look for a line that says
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-18-generic root=UUID=
and see if the number that comes after that is or is not the same as in
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=UUID=

If it is, the problem lays elsewhere. If it's not, first make a backup copy

sudo cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst.backup

Then

kdesudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

and copy the UUID from 16 to 18, save and reboot.

When I looked at the two entrences with KGRUBEditor, I finaly found the
problem:

At the 2.6.24-16 there was this: Root (hd0,2)
And at the 2.6.24-18 it was this: Root (hd0,0)

So I changed it to hd0,2 rebooted, and all is fine now.

Thanks
