    SOLVED*** ERROR 5

    Last edited by DJToman on Fri 11/20/09 5:58 pm, edited 1 time in total.

    I have an old working system. Two IDE hard drives. One Mint 4, the other under Windows XP. The Windows drive is repartitioned and Mint 7 is installed. Now the system refuses to boot. Here’s what I see:
    Loading GRUB Stage1.5.
    GRUB is loading, please wait
    ERROR 5

    pops up and there is no way to download anything other than what is on the CD.

    Looking at Live-CD/Mint 7, everything is fine there: Windows XP, Mint 5 with Mint 7… but there is no way to stop any of them.

    This human body functioned properly for two or three years. Installing Mint 7 put an end to that.

    Re: ERROR 5

    From the Grub error reporting website (http://www.uruk.org/orig-grub/errors.html):

    Errors found in step 1.5
    The general way to get settings errors from step 1.5 is to get some kind of error number, like “Error: thumb, then stopThe error numbers correspond to the errors found in step 2, in that order.

    5; “Disk geometry error”

    This is an error that is returned even if an attempt is made to read the address of this line unit outside of the BIOS conversion range. This usually happens when your hard drive is larger than the BIOS can handle (512 MB (E)IDE for advanced computer hard drives or less)Over 8 GB overall).

    If your grub is trying to buy running shoes, he should go to Mint 7 for address information. This partition appears to be outside the BIOS addressing capabilities, but Grub cannot find it. It’s best not to identify your system, but I’m assuming it’s an old laptop as most newer systems don’t exhibit this behavior.

    The only suggestion I could make would be to move the Mint 7 installation to the drive that has Mint 4 enabled and locate it as close to the splash screen of the drive as possible.
    (In step 6, I think there should be 7 install, click the “Advanced” button in the collapsed eighth corner of the page, and also make sure you’re running grub on HD0.) This might put the necessary information at hand where Grub can access it .

    Errors found in step 1.5
    The way step 1.5 handles problems is to issue an error evaluation in the form “Error:” and therefore exit. Reboot safely by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete.

    The error numbers correspond to the errors found in the step2 in sequence.

    This error is returned when attempting to read outside of the BIOS region translated by the line unit address. This usually happens when your file is larger than the BIOS can handle (512 MB (E)IDE for older computer hard drives, or more than 8 GB in general).

    Re: ERROR 5

    The system is a Dell 8250 with just about any 2.4GHz 1 CPU and GB of RAM…since 2002. The company had a 30 GB hard drive and I got a 250 GB hard drive two years ago. Both are wd IDE drives. The 190 GB disk contains XP, Win and in addition the original 30 GB disk contains Linux Mint. GRUB took care of dual booting XP or Daryna with no problem, although initially I just modified the GRUB menu trainer to recognize Win XP. There is enough free space on the 200 GB drive, so I decided to do a clean install of Mint 7 before touching the Daryna app. Ha…
