Error 15: File not found - Can't boot into new re-install

Just re-installed 64 studio 2.0 on a SATA disk. I went through the installer and chose the "use whole disk option" (as opposed to 'largest continuous free space' because I have other disks on the machine with data i want to keep), went through the process, and now am getting the file not found error. As i said, this is a re-install (long story) using the same install DVD and the same HDD that worked the first time..Any Ideas? thanks, Juan

I said it before, but this is why I love the open source community...

I'm booting to IDE...

Partly because I had heard the installer had quirks with SATA. This motherboard (Asus A8N SLI-Deluxe) had basic boot choice in BIOS for floppy, hard drive, CD, etc. What got changed was another setting (I'm on it now, can't look) that let me re-arrange the drives within the 'hard drive' order from another menu. I put it back to the proper IDE drive, and it came right up. I currently have one IDE for the OS, another IDE for /home and SATA for data. I had two 160 gig SATA for data, but couldn't get the soft raid choice within Ardour to work. I filed a bug report, talked to them about it on IRC. In the mean time, I just put it back for one SATA for data. I haven't pushed it really hard yet to see how many tracks I can do, but was hoping the soft raid within Ardour would give me more throughput.

Had the same...

I had a system with 2 SATA drives, and after I took apart my old WinXP system, had a 160GB seagate drive that needed a home. It went into my studio PC naturally, but after I added the IDE I got the same error. I could not change the order for it to boot of the SATA at all, and I had to install a boot partition on the IDE. The boot partition is not large, and basically only contains the kernel for booting. Gremlins indeed

I eventually was able to boot from the SATA disk by changing the line 'root (hd1,0)' to 'root (hd0,0)' in the grub menu. more info here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=644773 (look at post #5)

I had this recently: http://64studio.com/node/464 I considered it a strange situation, because I was adding/removing some SATA drives for data (the OS boots to IDE) using a Knoppix CD. Nothing on the installed OS had changed, but it turned out that my BIOS boot order had changed. Gremlins, or something.
