GRUB preventing booting from external usb cd rom drive on fedora core 5.
Posted on 2006-06-24
I have Fedora Core 5 running on my laptop.
Normally, this laptop can boot from usb cd or dvd drives as it doesn't have an internal drive
I installed the FC on the laptop through an external drive.
Through the BIOS screen, it's set up so that it would try booting up the CD drive first.
However, whenever I try to boot up from the CD drive now, the grub loader kicks in and boots the laptop off the hdd and loads fedora core.
This is a BackTrack CD used for security audits etc.
I know the CD is indeed bootable because I can boot my windows xp system with this cd so I know that it works.
how can I make my laptop boot off the external cd drive?
