ive already google this a lot but it didnt help me
i had ubuntu and windows xp and everything was fine. then i installed fedora in the partition where ubuntu was (basically deleting ubuntu) and it installed fine. it said reboot. i reboot and i get this.

GRUB Loading stage1.5.


GRUB Loading, please wait...
Error 15
_

needless to say it wont let me type anything. and also when i google it they all redirect you to gentoo forums ot other OS's saying boot from your livecd and do this or do that

BUT, fedora doesnt have a livecd but rather 5 fricken installation disks that i had to download for hours and burn!!

please help me. sorry im going crazy but i worked 13 hours and i get home and get this on top of it...

Take two steps...

pop-in a Windows Disk and use the recovery console to issue the command
Code
fixmbr




That should clear any bootloaders you may have and allow you to boot from the first harddisk without interference.

Then, if you can get into your linux distro you can reinstall your boot-loadout without having to overwrite anything (fixmbr cleared it out) or if you cannot get into your OS, just re-install the OS with a clean boot-record.

There's no need to create a second thread, you should have appended your question to the one you had earlier ... you would have had a better diagnostic to the problem.

http://hellboundh. . .8379#61027

Now, the problem is that you didn't mount your newly partition. You're trying to "ls" the content of /boot under the CD (which doesn't exist).

To get to your recovery console, just pop in the Fedora Core Rescue CD in a type in "fixmbr" as previously suggested -- that's assuming that you already installed GRUB on the MBR ... I hope you did, like I told you in the previous post, or else, it'll be boot-camp for you (pun intended!).

Also, make sure to edit "grub.conf" to boot with windows as default OS, like you want it to.

Follow the steps on the previous thread, with my advice and all should be all working.

It'd be also great if you didn't create any more unnecessary threads and kept to these... trust me, it's better if you want help.

do yourself a favor and check to see it /boot/grub/grub.conf and /boot/grub/menu.lst exist ... Remember to mount your Linux partition first, tho.

If it doesn't exists try doing:

chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub-install --recheck /dev/hda
exit
exit


Then reboot your computer.

And IF the /boot directory is still missing, then go ahead and try:

grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/hda


If after doing all that you still get some problems, try to see if your partition is OK and doesn't have errors on it...

fsck -y /dev/hda


FYI: I'm using HDA to refer to your install partition, it's relative and you need to substitute it for whatever you're using by default.

Yeah, these guy are right too, but if you want to get into the recovery console of Windows, just boot with any Microsoft install disk and press R at the first prompt.
