RE: [K12OSN] Dual Boot with LILO



Thanks again for the assistance. I eventually tried the Fedora Rescue CD and was able to reload Grub with that. Of course now no one can log in because
kinit(v5): Clock skew too great while getting initial credentials
but I'll get it fixed I'm sure.

Here is a copy of the lilo.conf file. I also still have the /boot partion which is not inside of the LVM originally created. I'm pretty sure it's not even being used anymore. I was thinking if there was a way to make that partition bootable again, and remove lilo that might work too. Thanks for any help.

Eeewww. LILO is the reason grub was created.

If you can access one distro then you have a chance. By editing
the /etc/lilo.conf file and reruning /sbin/lilo it will update the MBR
boot code.

Now the updates are going to be the biggie and it's been a LONG time
since I've tweaked anything. If you can send over what you have, we'll
take a peek and see if there is something obvious.
