  1. re-posting FC5 issue

    I'm running the following:

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+
    1.5 GB ram
    raid array (two raptor 34 GB drives)

    I've let FC5 install (setup the partitions the way it wants to and
    everything seems fine. The install goes well. The screen tells me the
    install was sucessful and "please remove the install media from any drives,
    etc." and "reboot". I reboot and all I get is a black screen with the word
    GRUB_ ( the "_" is flashing) and the keyboard is de-activated. What do I
    do?

    Windows drives.

    It's funny you should ask... no... Grub would rear it's head each time. In
    fact, even when I deleted my "C" partition (on the non-raid drive) and
    re-formatted (using partition magic) that @#%$%@GRUB was there! I had to
    reinstall windows using the winXP install disk to rid the computer of the
    pervasive GRUB.

    The reason he asked, is that is the behavior when grub cannot find it's
    configuration file. It sounds like the order of the drives was not as
    expected when grub started. Since it was in the boot sector, it
    required a rewriting of the boot sector to remove it. So the question
    that remains is why it couldn't find the /boot/grub/grub.conf file.
