Fixing the boot issue

In Redhat Linux, during grub display, just type c for command-line

option of GRUB: To boot Linux do this:
grub> help

grub> root
(hd1,1): Filesystem is type ext2fs, partition type 0x83
grub> root (hd1,0)

grub> kernel /boot/vmlinuz

grub> boot

To boot MS Windows 95/2000 etc do this: If you want to boot an
unsupported operating system (e.g. Windows 95), chain-load a boot
loader for the operating system. Normally, the boot loader is embedded
in the boot sector of the partition on which the operating system is

grub> help
grub> help rootnoverify
grub> rootnoverify (hd0,0)
grub> makeactive
grub> chainloader +1
grub> boot
