So I've installed Android X86 on my wetab tablet, using the corvus mod files found here, but for some reason, my tablet now boots right into a grub 0.97 command line (I suspect it does this because there are no grub menu options configured). At this point, loading the kernel and initrd manually results in a frozen tablet, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get grub to boot android from the hard drive properly.

My only thought was to boot from a liveCD and take a look at the grub config files, but I cannot actually look at the hard drive in the tablet from the liveCD, since I don't have write permissions and thus cannot use the mount command.

If anyone has any idea as to what I could do to get grub to boot android from the hard drive, I'd appreciate it. Thanks beforehand!

EDIT: Also, I used the installation instructions from here, so I have sda1 and sda5 partitions, and I ran the installation with DATA=sda1 SDCARD=sda5 options.
