I am having a bit of a problem with my Fedora 12 installation on my new
macbook pro. I have installed twice. First I followed the instructions on
manual partition layout here:
That installation wouldn't boot post-install. The second time I used the
default fedora partitioning settings. I got the exact same error as the
first attempt which is something along the lines of: "No boot medium found,
please insert a bootable disk".
I installed rEFIt before I attempted to install anything. After both
installs rEFIt recognised the fedora installation, but it still would not
My partition layout is as follows:
/dev/sda1 // rEFIt
/dev/sda2 // 20 GB HFS+
/dev/sda3 // /boot ext4
/dev/sda4 // / ext4 460GB
/dev/sda5 // linux swap 5 GB
there is also 20GB free space somehwhere which I intend to install Windows
on, I need a program called Solid Works for my Leaving Cert.
I opened the grub.conf file with a live disk and it appears that all is ok.
It points towards root(hd0,3) which looks alright to me.
Can anyone see any solution to my problems?
