Hi Arch community !
First, please excuse my (very) (bad) english...
I'm installing the Arch on a new machine, but in the grub installation step, something is blocking me.
The output says
grub> root (hd0,2) Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x82 grub> setup (hd0,3) Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition
Huh... is really 0x82 an unknown type ? There might be a problem somewhere...
So i look my fdisk :
# fdisk -l /dev/sda1 * 946 25261 195318270 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda2 1 945 7590681 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda3 25262 25784 4200997+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda4 25785 48641 183598852+ 83 Linux Partition table entries are not in disk order
I agree with this... one redmond, one redmond/backup, one swap and my /.
And they are not in disk order, ok.
I check my menu.lst with thoses informations :
title Arch Linux root (hd0,2) kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sda3 ro initrd /boot/kernel26.img
It seems to me to be all right ! Where is the problem ?
Do you maybe have an idea ?

Type 82 is SWAP, and hd(0, 2) is your swap partition. Try changing hd(0,2) to hd(0,3), to make it point to /dev/sda4 instead. I think that'll fix it.
also change root=/dev/sda4

Thank you peart
You are right, (hd0,2) seems to be my swap partition, and (hd0,3) my ext2 one.
I did the change, bu grub is always trying
root (hd0,2) setup (hd0,3)
with the same errors... strange
SOLVED : That is allright after re-install...
thank you quand même !
