Hi,This isn't really relevant anymore,now I have another problem,I installed the new linux mint and this is my new master grub.When I trie to boot CentOS it gives an error telling to give a valid root option...Here are my entries:

[code]
menuentry "CentOS release 5.5 (Final) (on /dev/sda7)" {
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos7)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 7d3e7bc2-2563-4090-b3e5-eecc92ca8dbd
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5 root=/dev/sda7
}
menuentry "CentOS release 5.5 (Final) (on /dev/sda7)" {
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos7)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 7d3e7bc2-2563-4090-b3e5-eecc92ca8dbd
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.17.1.el5 root=/dev/sda7
}
menuentry "CentOS release 5.5 (Final) (on /dev/sda7)" {
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos7)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 7d3e7bc2-2563-4090-b3e5-eecc92ca8dbd
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.17.4.el5 root=/dev/sda7
[/code]
Someone who can tell me how to change it so I can boot CentOS again?

1. You have hijacked your own thread by changing the question.

2. This no longer seems to be a CentOS question. That looks nothing like a CentOS /boot/grub/grub.conf fragment.

3. I'd still suggest a chainload to CentOS GRUB, but you probably need to ask how to do that on a [url=http://forums.linuxmint.com/]Mint forum[/url]. In order to do that you first need to follow [url=http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/ReinstallGRUB]How to reinstall GRUB[/url] and write the CentOS GRUB to the CentOS boot partition rather than the MBR.

4. If you need additional help with CentOS issues please start a new topic, with reference to this one if required for context.

It's OK now:I downgraded my Mint grub,restarted Centos,suddenly an error was found: cluster 1023 should be cluster 1024 or something like that...The error got fixed and now I have access to my Centos system (problem solved I would say....)
