HELP WIHT MY USB_MultiBoot5.cmd

21 posts in this topic

find --set-root /grldr
root (hd0,0)

These don't make sense:

You first make root on whatever drive/partition has grldr in root.

Then you make root (hd0,0).

Current root is of course determined by last root command issued. ;)

In addition- "root=/dev/sdb1" isn't an universal solution, in case you start on a PC with SATA drives for example. Better is to set a label for that partition, lets say FEDORA and change the option to:

root=LABEL=FEDORA

In this case your root partition will be always found, regardless of hard drive numeration.

Thanks jaclaz for pointing that for me and realize that they both refer to same root, and excuse me for i am new to all these usb stuff .

root (hd0,0)
kernel /syslinux/vmlinuz0 ro rootfstype=msdos root=/dev/sdb1 quiet liveimg rhgb
initrd /syslinux/initrd0.img

ilko i did not get your drift, did you mean to create a folder in my root named fedora and then change the entry or what.

and for the the knowledge what do these enteries(hd0,1)and (hd1,1) refer to.

(hd0) means First drive (Drive 0)

(hd0,0) Means First Partition (Partition 0) of First drive

(hd1,0) Means First Partition (Partition 0) of Second drive (Drive 1)

(hd1,1) Means Second Partition (Partition 1) of Second drive (Drive 1)

.....

About the Fedora thing, what ilko_t suggested is to assign a LABEL to the partition:

http://www.ss64.com/nt/label.html

http://www.ss64.com/nt/vol.html

http://lissot.net/partition/ext2fs/labels.html

What you see in an Explorer window beside the drive letter.

root (hd0,0)
kernel /syslinux/vmlinuz0 ro rootfstype=msdos root=LABEL=FEDORA quiet liveimg rhgb
initrd /syslinux/initrd0.img

It works fine, but i can not access my harddisk(Drive 1) partitions, any suggestions.

I couldn't either, no matter using LABEL or /dev/sdb1. 2 partitions NTFS and one hidden Dell partition, probably that matters.

BTW what special did you find about this Fedora live, compared to Puppy or DSL if it is for emergencies or repair? 690MB are giving you what?

edit: yep, install from add/remove programs "ntfs-config", and use it to mount the NTFS drives. My Windows was hibernated and it refused to mount it without shutting it down first.
