Notice: This is not about dual booting, I can setup GRUB to dual boot with Windows 7 later. I just need to be able to get into Arch Linux.

Last night I installed Arch onto my computer via netinstall and it all went smoothly, but when I went to reboot... it loaded up the GRUB menu and it listed Arch Linux, but when I select it, I get "Error 15: File not found."

I've been googling and trying various way to fix this problem but I always get the same error.

Some info about my partitions:

/dev/sda:

  1. Windows 7 System Reserved
  2. Windows 7

/dev/sdb:

  1. Data (Movies, Music, etc..)

/dev/sdc:

  1. Seperate Boot Partition
  2. Swap
  3. Seperate Home Partition
  4. Root

/dev/sdd:

  1. PENDRIVE

Your /etc/fstab and blkids don't match:

/dev/sdc1: UUID="2a23abcf-b29f-4119-b406-0b1817e5c8e1" TYPE="ext2"
/dev/sdc1 /boot

/dev/sdc2: UUID="f3d9ce0d-5953-4f4e-885a-4cd2ebf6b6e9" TYPE="swap"
/dev/sdc2 swap

/dev/sdc3: UUID="2a53bdc8-7a9a-4dd2-9aef-5b7b4c3e74a4" TYPE="ext4"
home or root

/dev/sdc4: UUID="7b4faa93-98db-49e3-ad41-92e9dc60deda" TYPE="ext4"
home or root

if you correct your fstab it should boot –  hbdgaf Nov 26 '10 at 23:56
