When you did your interactive restore did you restore to a different
style of disk SCSI vs IDE?
No. The systems are identical.
I didn't. I don't recall these from TFM (The "F" applies greatly
right now, btw), but maybe I missed it. Can someone help me along
with this whole grub thing? I also got some advice to use fdisk to
make sure my partition is bootable. I'm not sure how I use either of
these utilities from a box that doesn't detect an OS... do they have
some type of mini-OS that allows them to do their work without a
Linux kernel on the machine?
Did you update your grub.conf before you
rebooted and did you install grub?
Thanks for the help.
