I've seen that happen, but I don't know what causes it. It hasn't happened in a long time. Tell me more about your setup. Is there another OS installed? Did you start with a new hard drive with nothing on it? How did you partition it?

And are you the same person who was telling me about this in irc a couple days ago?

/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod (lots of files in the folder)

If you don't have the i386-pc folder you won't have the .mod file. I looked this up a while back to see if I could delete that folder since I run 64 bit, turns out you can't for several reasons, you can google it to see. But you will need the file.

Amiga sound tracker audio...weird that it still needs this stuff.
Vuu-do GNU/Linux, minimal 64 and 32 bit Devuan-based openbox and mate systems to build on, maximal versions if you prefer your linux fully-loaded.
