kernel26.img not found at /boot.

I;m using the /arch/setup for installation.  At the step of "Install Kernel"  , the screen says that it's successful , showing that the kernel26.img is at /boot.

However i check on the /boot only "grub" folder is present ,no kernel26.img .

I couldn't complete the "bootloader" configuration stage, i think due to this problem.

Any idea or suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: kernel26.img not found at /boot.

Have you set up a separate boot partition or not?

Re: kernel26.img not found at /boot.

Thanks for the reply..

I did the fdisk -l

Screen output shown below:
----------------------

Disk /dev/sda: 20.4GB 20416757760 bytes.
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2482 cyclinders
Units: Cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

-------------------

There's an "*" under the Boot column, so it's a boot partition. (Just did it using fdisk) :-)

I just did again the "Install Kernel" , and there 's a screen shows 3 lines something like "no mount point../proc" it flashes very fast.. does the message stored in a file which i can refer it?

I checked the /boot  and still no kernel26.img.

Re: kernel26.img not found at /boot.

Are you using 0.8 ISO?

Start the installation from the beginning and make sure you set up mount points properly (/boot, / and /home, I presume). Perhaps you misconfigured something at this stage.

Re: kernel26.img not found at /boot.

Yes, I;m using the 0.8 ISO.

I think something is not right with my CD-RW drive. 

I tried to bootup the Ubuntu Edge LiveCD and got message about the "CDROM drive - confused.." and hangs there.

I strongly believe the issue lies with the CD-RW drive, because i had burnt  number of times of ArchLinux iso file to CD-R.  Did the MD5sum check, it's ok.

But i kept  having errors in retrieving some  files out from the base package.

I have make up my mind , tomorrow i will buy a brand-new CD-RW drive, and will see the outcome. wink
