OK, a backup never hurt!
Oops I did something wrong.
I had to do a cd /boot
And then I should have left well enough alone, but I was trying to understand OP's other commands and ran the last one which was suppose to return something but returned nothing.
[root@localhost boot]# mkinitrd -v --preload pata_amd --preload sata_nv initrd-126.96.36.199-pclos3.bfs.img 188.8.131.52-pclos3.bfs <Enter>
You should see a whole bunch of rolling text as the process progresses. When you are returned to the prompt, the build should be complete.
Again, try the command;
[root@localhost boot]# lsinitrd /boot/initrd.img |grep modprobe <Enter>
Then I rebooted. After grub, Linux won't load and I get a black screen that says:
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x3800, size=0x2358c0]
What did this do?
lsinitrd /boot/initrd.img |grep modprobe
I didn't think an ls
command would mess up something.
I'm guessing I should revert back to the backup and just use the two commands only you first posted. How do I do this?
My bad for trying to learn....
