Eagle Server Installation Guide Linux Grub Information
Some PCs encounter problems seeing a boot menu after installing Eagle-Server. The following will help you restore your grub boot menu.

1. Open a Terminal Shell session 2. At the prompt, type “su –“ and press <Enter>. (There is a space between “su” and “-“) When prompted for a password, type “cisco” and press <Enter>. Your prompt should change to “[root@Eagle-Server ~]#”. You are now the root superuser. 3. Type “grub” (without parentheses) and press <Enter>. This will change the prompt to “grub>”.

4.

Type “find /boot/grub/stage1” and press <Enter>. This will return the boot locations of your grub files. If multiple lines are returned it is a good bet that the first one is your original boot grub location. It will look something like: (hd0,1), where the “0” is the disk, and the “1” is the partition. Note: This “find” command can mislead you on the next step. The partition numbers given here are relative, where the “root” command wants the absolute partition number. You will need to subtract 1 from the partition numbers shown on this screen when you enter your disk and partition information in on the root command.

Eagle Server Installation Guide

5. Type “root (hd#,#)” Enter the information that was returned from the find command in the previous step, remember to subtract 1 from the partition number (second number). For example if (hd0,1) was the first line returned, then type “root (hd0,0)”. 6. Type “setup (hd#)” and press <Enter>. Replace the “#” with the disk number returned in step 4. 7. Type “quit” and press <Enter>. This will return you to the “[root@Eagle-Server ~]#” prompt. 8. Reboot the Server. 9. If the system boots to a “grub>” prompt, don’t despair…you are almost there! Re-enter steps 5 and 6 again. Then type “reboot” and Press <Enter>. Your system should boot normally now. If you don't see the boot menu, read the prompt as it may be asking you to press “ESC” for the boot menu. If you don't press anything the system should automatically boot to your original Linux configuration. Top
