AltME: Syllable

In ATA terms, hdd is the slave drive on the second controller
What does the GrUB root() command in menu.lst say?
AdrianS
(hd3,0)
Kaj
At least that's consistent. I don't know why that boot menu option would not work
Can't you mount the image as primary master in VMware?
AdrianS
I don't think I had the choice
Kaj
You mount it somewhere when you create it, don't you?
Back later

Was watching Arnold's riots

I've re-installed yet again and gotten it to work by selecting the first controller - for some reason the installation defaults to putting the HD on controller 1 as the second device - the CD being the first on the same controller
I guess the logic in grub should be able to find it even on the second controller, no? In any case, it works now with the first menu option
riots?
btw, confirmed that the screen resolution isn't persisted
even with a clean shutdown
Kaj
Odd
More about the riots in Chit Chat
Do the virtual desktops work for switching resolution, as described in the Welcome?
AdrianS
yes
Kaj
GrUB should be adble to start from anywhere as long as it's consistent. Dunno why it didn't here, but in general, emulators are weird
AdrianS
easy to switch using alt key, so no big problem - it would be nice if there was a 1920x1200 one though, so that going full screen would use all space
