    Hi, thanks for this simple and practic explanation. Last night I did this step by step and when I was asked to reboot, the message “grub rescue unknown files” appeared. Now, I’m not really sure what this means.

    As I said, I followed step by step this tutorial and installed grub on /boot. Can you help me out?

    Thanks!

    So.. following the tutorial, at the “Install the base system” stage, I get the following error:

    Debootstrap Error
    Invalid Release file: no entry for contrib/binary-amd64/Packages.

    I hit continue and see “Failed to install the base system The base system installation into /target/ failed.

    Pretty much dead in the water. Any ideas?

      You installation media might be corrupted.

      Btw, why are you still installing Debian 6? How about trying Debian 7.

    I’ve tried to install Debian 7 next to Windows 7 with this tutorial. It crashes when trying to install Grub on (hd0,5). (Doesn’t go further, simply stops.) Any help?

      What type of PC are you installing it on, and what is the error message generated after the crash?
