  3. BIOS Preferences

    If I set the BIOS to how you have asked above, then Vista boots okay. 1 ch0 M. :WDC WD1002FAEX-00Y9A0 Vista Will boot to Vista 2 ch1 M. ST332062ONS (Formatted) 3 Bootable Add-in Cards (None) ch0 is the drive with Vista installed. This is what is so confusing. ch1 is the drive that has been formatted that once had Linux mint installed to. I am under the impression that GRUB has been deleted from the formatted drive that Linux initially put there. So, if it was never installed to the Vista drive, I am wondering how, during a failed boot, GRUB gets a mention? I am only a novice so perhaps there is much more to this that I am unaware of. Thank you for your response.
  4. BIOS Preferences

    I am hoping someone can explain this to me. I have a HDD which has Vista on it. I have another HDD which has been formatted. It recently had Linux mint installed but I formatted the drive. In the BIOS, Vista will not load if the settings are 1.Bootable Add-in cards 2.Vista Drive 3. Formatted drive. Now, here is the oddity. Vista will load if I set the preferences to 1.Bootable Add-in cards. 2. Formatted drive. 3. Vista Drive. The error I get when I use the first arrangement is, "error: unknown file system grub rescue." This is a bit odd because I thought Grub would have been deleted when I formatted the drive. I unplugged the formatted drive and set the BIOS preferences to 1.Vista drive 2. Bootable Add-in cards and Vista booted okay. This all makes no logical sense to me. Regards EJWAGADORN
