    This problem can be caused by a faulty install to the HDD

    What method did you use.

    I would follow this video, it is for dual boot but you can easily adapt it if you only need it for BT2
    http://www.offensive-security.com/mo.../dualboot.html

    If you follow this transcript along with it you will find it easier (especially as it points out the error at around the 9min mark

    If you try this I am sure your problem will be solved.

    You were not told of by me.. I was merely reminding you of them.

    If you keep the basics in order then everything else usually follows

    All working now that i used the manual method of install, thanks balding_parrot. although there are some discrepancies in the movie somewhere in there he types cp /boot/boot/vmlinuz but all good now.

    That's why I say to follow the transcript where they are pointed out.

    Great to hear It works, well done.

    MY ADVICE ROCKS !!!!
