I have two hard drives. One is an external hard drive by usb. I set it up to be the primary.
It has Linux and MS Server 2003 on it. Linux is the primary on the drive. My problem is when it loads it goes to command line "grub>" I did have it in a hard case and it hooked up by IDE cable and it would just load. Now that I have switched it to USB, this "grub>" command comes up and it says i must load the kernel before I can boot.. Im not real sure about what command i need to put.

Hi there,

Do you mean that the drive used to be internal and you took it out and put it in a USB enclosure? If that is the case, then all you need to do is reinstall the Linux bootlaoder (GRUB), so that it points to the partition at it's new location. You will have to use a drive mapping or partitioning tool such as Acronios to determine the exact location of the drive (i.e, /dev/sdb1), then you just need to run the following command:

grub> grub-install /dev/hd0 (replace with location of your partition)


Hope this helps.
