[Solved] Grub error when booting...

Today I decided to try out Archlinux everything worked fine until the reboot.. Grub doesn't seem to work as intended, grub just kept posting:

[...] 
GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB
[...]

nothing but "GRUB" came up.


My menu.lst:

default  0
timeout 3
color light-blue/black light-cyan/blue

title Arch Linux
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sda3 ro vga=773
initrd /kernel26.img

Title Arch Linux Fallback
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda3 ro vga=773
initrd /kernel26-fallback.img

version: 0.8beta2

I haven't found any threads about it, if there's any i'm sorry for bringing up a new one.

any suggests?

Re: [Solved] Grub error when booting...

Try this (unless you moved the kernel image for some reason)

root   (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sda3 ro vga=773
initrd /boot/kernel26.img


boot with the install CD, do a mount /dev/sda3 /mnt , nano /mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst , make the change and reboot

Thanks for your answer, I tried to change to "/boot/" altho GRUB just keep spamming "grub" all over the screen. :(

Do you know anything else that could cause this problem?

True, not that good error message ^^

This is how I did it:
boot: arch root=/dev/sda3
grub
root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0)
quit
reboot

I think of Monty Python when I see it and look around for the Vikings
