Grub Error 21 External

The controller writes to the boot drive in the area of the disk (first cylinder?) and grub also wants to write to the first 16 sectors. You can remove hiddenmenu option in grub.conf file to make it appear. You can change the default setting (default will be hd0) so that GRUB Stage 1 installs to the external, not the internal drive. This error is returned when my HDD in plugged on a "RAID" IDE. (By the way, I don't use RAID, it's a single disk). http://fileupster.com/grub-error/grub-error-24.html

I figured that wouldn't cause any problems. Have not reinstalled ubuntu to date, but did have to reinstall windows operating system as the mbr appeared to be destroyed by the intallation of ubuntu.

but i got a error 22??.. Then, when you run grub-install, you'd say Code: grub-install --root-directory=/dev/hd?/new_partition /dev/hda ...

Well, OK, I take that back. http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/red-hat-fedora-linux/162056-solved-grub-error-21-a.html If you have two drives inside the PC, then the external should be hd2 in GRUB-speak. My BIOS (Dell Inspiron 1525 ; Version A11)supports booting from USB and I think it also supports on-the-fly changing, since I can currently select which OS I wanna run.

I realized, though, that unless you specifically tell grub-install to put the grub images on the hard drive, they're still on the USB! then grub> setup (hd0) then "quit" grub and reboot. Apparently fedora and gentoo works for the user though.

I started this thread on three otherforums and no one really knew what I was talking about.

The issue appears to be conflicting notions of the hardware setup, in particular RAID devices, between BIOS and the Linux kernel, mosly likely because of a poor driver for Linux that Does anyone have experience installing a kernel with lilo or another bootloader?
