Re: Using VMWare 2.0.2

When installing I did not enable GRUB, so I'm thinking that would not be an issue. I'm going to install with VMWare 1 tonight and see if that fixes the problem.

I've had issues with grub not picking up the right boot partition.. if you can boot with your the install media and see it, then check your /boot/grub/grub.conf file and verify its looking at the partition you specified to be the boot partition when you did the install.
Not sure how familiar with grub but here is a clip. You want to be looking at the root(hd0,0) line. The below says to boot from the first partition of the first drive.
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-78.0.1.ELhugemem)
root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-78.0.1.ELhugemem ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet initrd /initrd-2.6.9-78.0.1.ELhugemem.img
