I have a problem with grub during the boot. I have the follow message :

GRUB Loading stage2
graphic file "/boot/grub/message.elive" missing, press a key to continue ...

After pressing a key, i have GRUB in text mode.

Thanks for your help

cybermarcel I believe that our iso or disk is damaged in someway. You are having too many problems that are related to an incomplete distribution. I suggest you redownload the iso and the md5sum and check that the md5sum is correct.

Burn the iso at 8x and verify it...when you install...make sure you use th check Disc feature before proceeding futher.

A healthy diet includes, Linux, Linux and more Linux.
