Yes I have a /boot/grub directory. It does load up.
(hd0,0) < 2007
(hd0,5) < 2009
(hd0,6) < Mini
(hd0,7) < Gnome
(hd0,8) < 2010 ext3
(hd0,9) < Zen
(hd1,0) < 2010 test
(hd1,5) < 2010 bkup ext3
(hd1,6) < 2010 bkup ext4 - tbl ******
(hd1,7) < 2010 new install ext4
hd1,6 - sdb7 is the one I have been talking about (copied initrd to get working).
On sda1 menu.lst
but this works:
title 2010 BKUP ext4
kernel (hd1,6)/boot/vmlinuz BOOT_IMAGE=linux root=/dev/sdb7 splash=silent vga=788
I also modified "doby" /usr/share/plymouth/motif.png (to give him a red eye), but need to run as root "switch-themes PCLinuxOS" which also gives me the "Cannot find a boot loader installed" error.
I renamed the grub folder and copied in the one from my new ext4 install - that opens up another can of worms. If this is as strange to you as it is to me, I'll close this up with the warning to all - don't try to backup your ext3 install to an ext4 partition!!!
