Installing GRUB on the MBR of a second drive

From MEPIS Documentation Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

GRUB is meant to be installed on the MBR of the first BIOS drive, however, with some tinkering it might work even if you install it on another drive:

  • For example in case you installed GRUB on a second drive you need to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst (as root) and change the reference from (hd1,*) to (hd0,*) because, if you boot from that drive, BIOS will "fool" GRUB into believing that that's the first disk of the system.
