I recently formatted an entire drive so I could install Linux on it. The partitions:
15 GB, Primary, sda1, mount point: / 232.9 GB Logical, sda5, mount point: /home 3 GB Logical, sda6, swap
However, upon install completion (with the GRUB bootloader) and reboot, the BIOS reports that it cannot find a bootable device.
I am thinking that I did not set sda1's
bootable flag. If this is the case - is there some way I can do this from the Debian CD's "rescue mode"?
The exact error message from the BIOS is
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key.
- Removed all other boot options (CD, USB) from the boot list
- Swapped cabled
- Tried other SATA ports
- Swapped hard drives (with new SSD)
