Hardware Hints

  • Booting: It should be noted that this system appears to be unable to boot off the MBR. Instead, it requires the bootcode to be found within the first partition on the first BIOS drive. In terms of grub, this means you want to install grub to /dev/sda1, not /dev/sda, so ‘(hd0,1)’, not ‘(hd0)’.
