We are getting close to it! Mikkel is right. Inside the grub prompt, I
run, as suggested, the command 'find /grub/grub.conf' and I get
(h0,1). Then I run
and I get the correct dialog panel to choose the kernel to boot, and
it goes though until a kernel panic emerges. My grub.conf file is now:
# more /mnt/sdc2/grub/grub.conf
title Fedora (18.104.22.168-91.fc7)
kernel /vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-91.fc7 ro root=/dev/sdc2 rhgb
title Fedora (126.96.36.199-85.fc7)
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-85.fc7 ro root=/dev/sdc2 rhgb
where should I insert
map (hd0) (hd2)
map (hd2) (hd0)
and what should I do to avoid the kernel panic? I suspect that
something is wrong with 'root=/dev/sdc2'.
