I'm trying to install LAMP in an old laptop. When run as a live CD it works perfectly but, when I install it on disk, then it fails to start. Grub just freezes before even showing the menu.
I used SystemRescueCD to have a look into the filesystem and everything seems ok. However, when I test grub with this command:
grub --config-file \(hd0,0\)/boot/grub/menu.lst
I get this:
root (hd0,0) Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83 kernel blah, blah [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x2a00, size=0x1d3738] initrd blah, blah Error 16: Inconsistent filesystem structure
I'm suprised grub detected an ext2 filesystem. I'm sure it was formatted as ext3. When issuing a mount command on /dev/sda1 without specifying filesystem type, it gets mounted as ext3. So... do you think it has something to do with the "inconistent filesystem structure"?
Do you people know what the problem might be and how to fix it?
Thanks in advance
