This is not a question, it is a fix to an issue I ran into. I couldn't find anywhere else to post this. Seemed to belong here more than Code Project.

I had a Toshiba Tecra A6 that was sitting around doing nothing so I decided to install Fedora 18 on it. I initially put the ISO on an 8GB USB drive using the Fedora Live USB Creator[^] and found that installation would choke and die when checking the installation media location.

So I booted from a DVD and the installation went through with no issues, but after the initial reboot I was presented with a black screen with a flashing underscore cursor in the top left hand corner. This wasn't much use as I couldn't use Fedora.

So after a bit of searching I found this page about Reinstall Grub 2 in Fedora 17[^], following is command by command play on what I found doing this on Fedora 18.

Boot from the DVD

Select Troubleshooting <-'
Select Rescue a Fedora System <-'
Select Continue <-'
Select OK <-'
Select OK <-'

Select shell Start shell
Select OK <-'

chroot /mnt/sysimage <-'
grub-install /dev/sda <-'
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg <-'
exit <-'
exit <-'

Select reboot Reboot
Select OK <-'

After the reboot the GRUB 2 screen came up, I selected Fedora and it booted in fine.
