Specs: Back Track 5, 1-2ghz CPU, 1-4gbs of RAM
The tag is wrong up top.... The product is a Seagate GoFlex 500 GB portable external hard drive.

hello, I was wondering why I keep getting a Grub error when I try to boot Back Track (Installed) on either of my laptops, it works fine on my desktop. But I am not able to boot the OS on either of my laptops.

First thing I do is hit the key to get into the BIOS settings and then look for the external hard drive, then I move the bar over the external hard drive and hit enter, the screen then goes black and acts as if it is booting, but then I get,

error: can't find file
grub rescue


This happens on boot laptops, but when I boot on my desktop it works find.... I am not sure why it doesn't work for the laptops....

If you can't get grub working, then you don't need to be using backtrack. it will just get you into trouble. Consider a more user friendly distro from distrowatch.com

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
