errors-but Ubuntu uses grub Can't get either bootloader to install, only run into a series of errors. For starters, under the old version of mandrake LILO was functional. I run the basic Ubuntu install, no special options and now it won't boot. I only get the L from lilo and a screen full of 99 99 99 which I found out means it's trying to use the first stage of LILO. Supposedly the standard for Ubuntu is Grub though, so lilo should be gone. I am able to boot with the Ububtu Live disc. Is it possible I am trying to load to bootloaders onto a RAM disc created by the live CD to run the Graphical Desktop? I have gotten as far as establishing settings but everytime I try to /sbin/grub or grub> setup (hd0)(or whatever does the mbr) or even the step in LILO where it writes to the MBR I seem to run into errors. I cannot perform lilo -u (from clean install). I have tried to run the Super-GrubCD mbr-fix, again errors. If i try the grub prompt where it looks for stage 1 it can't find it.
