I am using Windows 8 OS on my laptop and I had installed CentOS linux earlier. The BIOS is set for UEFI mode, thats why I had to switch it to legacy mode to support boot from CD.
Anyways, I managed to install CentOS clean the first time, but GRUB was not seeing Windows 8 as the second OS since, I wanted dual boot. So i tried messing around with the /etc/grub.conf file and now It wont even load windows.
I am tired of playing around, and i just want Linux to boot so I thought to re-install Linux again. So I deleted the Linux partition in my Windows 8 OS. Now its "Unallocated space". However when I put in the centOS 6 CD and try to boot from it, all i get is GRUB command line prompt.
I understand it is having trouble finding what to boot from CD, but then how did it do it the first time i installed it ? I am stuck with this :
There is no such thing as "ls" option. I am fairly new to Linux, so please pardon me if this question sounds dum. What do i do to have a fresh install of Linux ? Do i need to uninstall GRUB ?
