Debian Configuration :: Grub Config For Dual Boot (Identical But Independent)

Jan 3, 2016

I have a Jessie with grub2. I've bought ssd and copied root partition onto it. I've also installed grub on this disc. I would like to have dual boot:

- First option: old root booted from hdd
- second option: boot from copied ssd and use root from it.

So i would have two identical but independent configurations.

Both disc has different uids (changed after cloning).

I had a hope that i will change fstab to mount root partition from ssd, but it doesn't work. I need to change grub configuration, but how to add new position?

There is also problem that bios doesn't allow me to choose disc to boot from. So i would rather prefer to change grub configuration for dual boot from different disc.

Debian Configuration :: Removing Windows From Dual-boot Config?

Apr 7, 2011

I'm currently dual-booting Squeeze & Windows XP on a machine i use frequently.

In my experience on the desktop, i now see no reason to have Windows XP as a boot option, & wanted to try & avoid a full re-installation of Debian in order to remove XP (merging it's partition with / ).

I have a checklist that i put together, but wanted to be sure this was all correct before going forward.

1. Perform full back-up of all data.

2. Boot into Debian, through GUI -

System Tools > Disk Utility

- Select HDD (80GB Hard Disk)
- Select windows partition ( /dev/sda1 )
- Format /dev/sda1 to Ext4 Filsystem

3. Boot Live CD

- Use gParted to extend /dev/sda2 (was 38GB, will extend to 78GB)

4. Remove XP from the boot menu.

( Note: My ~ folder is on the same physical drive as / (same volume), but i actually store all Media on a separate physical drive which is formatted in NTFS. I plan on reinstalling XP using a virtual hard disk, & sharing that with the virtual machine.Here is a screenshot of my Disk Utility - [URL]

Fedora Installation :: 2 HDs And Dual Boot - How To Edit Grub Config File

Debian Multimedia :: Dual Monitor Setup - Two Identical Outputs

Sep 2, 2015

Just installed Debian 8, coming from Ubuntu12, it seems I cannot get my dual monitors to work as it should.

I want two monitors side by side, currently I have two identical outputs. I looked around a bit and register two possible problems.

root@bigcem101-debian:/home/bigcem101# xrandr
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 400, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected primary 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1024x768 0.00*
800x600 0.00
640x480 0.00
720x400 0.00

Hence, problem 1: it is as if there is only one monitor detected. Then I tried to look for Xorg.conf ..... and: problem 2 xorg.conf is not there. This seems to be normal but when I installed my Ubuntu years ago it was still there and one could manually set things. There must be something new I am missing.

Card:
VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV670 [Radeon HD 3690/3850]

It seems I have both ati and radeon installed.

root@bigcem101-debian:/home/bigcem101# X -configure
(EE)
Fatal server error:
(EE) Server is already active for display 0

I am clueless.

Debian Installation :: GRUB Multi-boot Config Does Not Work On Physical Machines

Mar 26, 2016

I wrote a GRUB multi-boot configuration so I can boot multiple distributions and have storage space on one 32GB flash drive.

set imgdevpath="/dev/disk/by-label/multiboot"

Code: Select allmenuentry 'Debian Jessie amd64' {
        set isofile='/iso/debian-8.0.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso'
        loopback loop $isofile
        linux (loop)/install.amd/vmlinuz
        initrd (loop)/install.amd/initrd.gz
}

This works in virt-manager when I boot the physical usb device a virtual disk with a usb bus and it works flawlessly, but when I plug it into a physical machine the cdrom detects fails to mount /dev/sdb1 as fstype=iso9660.

Debian :: Grub Boot Loader On A Dual Boot System?

Dec 16, 2010

This is the third time I try unsuccessfully to install Debian as a second OS on a hard drive. When it gets to the end of the installation process the installer asks whether I want to go ahead with the Grub Boot Loader, I choose yes. The end result is however that I can't boot that partition within the hard drive -- i.e., Debian. Can someone tell me what is going on? Should I not use the Grub Boot Loader when I have more than one operating system on a machine? Should I not install Grub on the Master Boot Record (MBR)?

Debian Configuration :: Dual Boot Ubuntu/Debian: Debian Has Disappeared?

Apr 5, 2011

I have just installed Ubuntu (/dev/sda7) and Debian (/dev/sda4), but since I have updated all informations on Ubuntu, then Debian did not appear anymore on the grub list. There is an wiki I have found, but I an not really sure about what to do.

Here are the boot informations:
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010

Boot Info Summary:

=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 488861020
of the same hard drive for core.img, core.img is at this location on
/dev/sda and looks on partition #3 for (,gpt3)/grub.

[Code]...

ps: on this file, it says that the /boot is installed on the MBR and /dev/sda3. I will remove the boot from MBR as I am now using /dev/sda3 instead. Sorry for my english

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot - Two Identical Windows Partitions - Sda2 Sda2?

Mar 26, 2011

I just successfully installed ubuntu 10.10 Meerkat Maverik parallel to manufacturer installed Windows 7 Professional on a newly bought ThinkPad t410. All works find just that on the boot screen instead of 1 Windows partition (usually something like "Windows 7 loader on sda1") I find two Windows partitions. Now, I know that Thinkpads have a recovery partition. Funny is though that both "Windows 7 loader on sda1/2" login to what seems the identical Windows (not one of them the "normal" and the other some form of a recovery).

Debian Configuration :: Virtualization Instead Of Dual Boot?

Sep 11, 2011

One of the things holding me back from building a new system with nothing but Linux is the vague possibility that that I might need to use some proprietary program that only works on Wind'ohs in the future. So far it has been easy to keep dual boot systems around, but a new system will be > 4 Gb of RAM of course, so I can't just install one of my copies of Win XP on it. But buying a new 64-bit version of Wind'ohs for ~$200 seems a waste.Is it now possible to run XP in a "virtual" machine under Debian? More importantly, is it possible to install XP completely from within the virtual machine so it never sees the > 4 Gb or RAM and freaks out? What sort of hardware is required to do something like this? I presume a CPU with certain special capabilities is essential, but wouldn't those special instructions (whatever they are) be pretty standard now? Would the virtual XP install need its own partition?

Debian :: Grub Corrupt After Dual Boot Install

Mar 22, 2015

Im currently not an linux expert so I turn to this forum after several attempts to fix my issue with grub.

I had a dualboot single HD with both win7 and win8.1 when I decided to install debian wheezy from usb.

I deleted the win7 partition and installed debian there. The partition scheme is separate /home

After reboot I automatically get into the "Grub rescue mode" and now I´m stuck.

I tried the commands:

set prefix=(hd0,msdosX)/boot/grub/
Insmod normal

I have msdos1, msdos3, msdos5 and msdos6 but nothing is listing anything from the grub rescue mode.

I get the "UNKNOWN FILE SYSTEM" error and cant get past that.

I also tried booting into rescue mode from usb iso install but nothing happens when choosing to repair GRUB.

The listed devices in rescue mode are:

/dev/sda1
/dev/sda2
/dev/sda3
/dev/sda5
/dev/sda6
debian uses sdb 1-2 and sdb1 is the only option to Reinstall GRUB on but it gives me "Unable to install GRUB in /dev/sdb1 This is a fatal error" message
/dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb2

Debian Installation :: UEFI GRUB Broken - Dual Boot 7.7 And Win 8.1

Dec 23, 2014

My Toshiba Satellite C870-198 has Debian 7.7 installed in UEFI mode alongside Windows 8.1. The GRUB menu no longer displays, but the machine boots straight into Windows.

I can boot into Debian or Windows from rEFInd installed on a USB stick. The rEFInd menu has the following entries:

The Debian entry actually launches the GRUB menu which was installed with Debian.

Code: Select allBoot Microsoft EFI boot (Boot Repair backup) from Basic data partition.
Boot supposed Microsoft EFI boot (probably GRUB) from Basic data partition.
Boot EFIubuntugrubx64.efi from Basic data partition.
Boot EFIdebiangrubx64.efi from Basic data partition.
Boot bootootx64.efi from Basic data partition.
Boot vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-amd64 from boot.

In an attempt to fix GRUB I executed the commands in the 'Reinstalling grub-efi on your hard drive' section of: [URL] ....

Code: Select allmount /dev/sda1 /boot/efi
... surprisingly returned:
Code: Select all$LogFile version 2.0 is not supported.  (This driver supports version 1.1 only.)
$LogFile version 2.0 is not supported.  (This driver supports version 1.1 only.)
Did not find any restart pages in $LogFile and it was not empty.
The file system wasn't safely closed on Windows. Fixing.
Code: Select all[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "EFI boot on HDD" || echo "Legacy boot on HDD"

... returned "EFI boot on HDD".

[Code] ....

... Where is Debian?

FULL HISTORY ....
=============================

The laptop came with Windows 8 preinstalled. I switched off Secure Boot and installed Ubuntu for UEFI dual boot. I recall having to use Boot Repair to get the GRUB boot manager working properly for both systems.

Recently I decided to replace Ubuntu with Debian 7.7 and first cloned the entire hard drive to a USB drive (The Clone Drive). This drive successfully boots into Ubuntu in UEFI mode.

Following this I took the opportunity to update Windows to 8.1, which broke GRUB as expected, so that the machine would only boot straight into Windows.

I installed Debian from a live USB stick in the mistaken belief that it would be bootable in UEFI mode. It did boot OK in legacy mode.

I then burned the full Debian 'DVD' image to a USB stick, booted it in UEFI mode and reinstalled Debian. In UEFI mode GRUB allowed me to boot into both Debian and Windows.

At this point I tested The Clone Drive. It was still able to boot into Ubuntu as previously, but after powering down, unplugging The Clone Drive and rebooting, the GRUB menu failed to appear and the machine booted straight into Windows. This is its current state.

Debian Installation :: Dual-boot Grub Rescue Says No Such Device

Feb 13, 2015

I'm inexperienced in Debian. I have a dual-boot machine (64-bit, Debian 7.3, Windows 7, legacy boot) and encouter a problem at boot ever since I completed the installation of Debian 7.3 alongside the exising Windows 7. This machine has six hard drives: two are intended for ntfs storage of general data (raided together by RAID1); two more are intended for ext4 storage of general data (also raided together by RAID1); the fifth contains the Windows OS files and the sixth contains the Debian OS files. The problem is that I arrive to the grub_rescue each time at boot, seeing the message:

GRUB loading.
Welcome to GRUB!

error: no such device: e081517b-3399-4067-9294-8f0686f753ca.

Debian Installation :: 8.3 And Windows 10 Dual Boot GRUB EFI Removed

Feb 3, 2016

I've been using Debian for a few years but always on dedicated boxes and/or VMs.

Finally decided to dual boot Debian and Windows on my main Desktop PC.

Installed as I normally would using, however this time using a seperate drive (one for the existing Windows 10 install and the other for Debian), Debian install detects that windows has an EFI partition and sticks an entry in there, which is fair enough, and everything working fine. Then I spent some time configuring all my software and set it all up just the way I like it. I've rebooted Debian a few times to check it's working correctly and it is.

The issue arrives when I reboot and load into Windows 10. It boots fine.

However after a further reboot GRUB no longer loads... and the machine just boots directly into Windows 10.

After doing some further digging into my EFI partition (and reinstalling various times) it would appear that after a reboot Windows 10 deletes the entry GRUB creates in my EFI partition after EVERY reboot.

Done some googling and most people advise turning off 'fast boot' in Windows as it locks certain partitions to facilitate the machine going into hibernation, only to find that it's always been turned off on my machine (I recall due to a driver issue with my graphics card this had to be turned off when I installed Windows 10).

I've found this article on the Ubuntu forums : [URL] .... however I've tried their steps and windows is still doing a hostile takeover of my EFI partion after a reboot!

Any way to stop Windows 10 from interfering with my EFI files after a reboot? (without doing the obvious thing and kill Windows off).

Debian Configuration :: Using Grub To Boot From An Iso Image?

May 30, 2010

I have a Knoppix DVD-ROM. I also have its image as k.iso at the second partition of HDD of my laptop. I use the DVD-ROM and write at the boot prompt the cheat code:

knoppix bootfrom=/dev/sda5/k.iso

I also have a folder Knoppix made during bootprompt by using the cheatcode knoppix tohd=/dev/sda5 and I can use the following cheatcode while booting from the DVD-ROM, like knoppix fromhd=/dev/sda5My laptop runs Debian Lenny 5.0.4, installed in the first partition of my HDD.
Can Grub be configured to boot from the Knoppix k.iso image, or the knoppix folder, which I use to use the Knoppix OS, so that I am freed from using the DVD, when I want to use the knoppix system?

Debian Installation :: Dual Boot UEFI - Grub Not Recognizing Drive

Mar 24, 2015

I've set up a dual boot system with Debian and Windows 8, both installed on their own drive, with their own boot partition. I installed eveything in UEFI-Mode with fast- and secure boot turned off. Both installations are working, as I can access them by changing the boot priority in the Bios. What I cannot achieve is to let grub boot my windows installation.

This is the output of parted -l:

Code: Select allModel: ATA Samsung SSD 840 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 128GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt

Number  Start   End    Size    File system     Name  Flags
 1      1049kB  512MB  511MB   fat32                 boot
 2      512MB   111GB  111GB   ext4
 3      111GB   128GB  17,0GB  linux-swap(v1)

[Code] .... 

As you can see, my linux install is on sda, my windows install on sdc (sdb beeing a data disk). This is the entry I made in the 40_custom file in etc/grub.d:

Code: Select allmenuentry "Windows 8.1" {
insmod part_gpt
insmod chain
set root='(hd2,gpt2)'
chainloader /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi
boot
}

I think this should be fine, but if I choose the windows entry wehen grub is booting, it says: error: no such partition. It's my first debian installation, and I am stuck here. Not too much of Linux experience in general.

Debian Installation :: Recover Grub On A Dual Boot Machine With Encrypted LVM

Oct 16, 2015

My laptop setup is:

sda1: W7
sda2: FAT16
sda3: /boot
sda4: encrypted LVM with debian (everything besides /boot)

now I've re-installed W7 so grub was overwritten. I've tried the procedure which worked for me previously:booting with the netinst usb in rescue mode, choosing a root partition to mount, using grub-install to reinstall the grub:

Code: Select allmount /dev/sda3 /boot
grub-install /dev/sda

Now I'm on Jessie (stable), and this time this fails, and I am able to mount only sda3.grub-install doesn't exit so I'm assuming it has been replaced by `grub-installer'. also '/boot' doesnt exist so I created it manually.

Code: Select allmount /dev/sda3 /boot
grub-installer /dev/sda

The latter fails with
Code: Select all/dev/sda/proc not a directory

Debian Installation :: Squeeze- Grub Can't Dual Boot -ntoskrnl.exe Error

Jun 7, 2010

I cannot count how many times I have re-installed squeeze, and do all kinds of fixes to grub, but no joy. Every time, there is this ntoskrnl.exe error, and to re-install it. I thought my WIN XP may be corrupted, so I reinstalled it, and updated it with sp3 and all updates. Then I re-installed squeeze (reformatting all partitions). At the end, the installer ask if I want to install grub to mbr. I replied yes. After reboot, only the 2.6.32.3-amd64 and the recovery kernels show up on the grub screen, no winxp.OK, I booted into squeeze kernel and looked at the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file, and there winxp is not included in /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober section. In terminal, I typed

#os-propber and it found winxp in /dev/sda1
then I typed
#update-grub

and now /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober now show winxp.I rebooted, and winxp shows on the grub screen, and I chose winxp.It came back with "ntoskrnl.exe ...error... re-install ntoskrnl..."Here are the details:

Debian Configuration :: LILO As A Boot Loader From Grub

Aug 26, 2015

I am thinking about maybe trying "LILO" [URL] ....

For my boot loader, from what I have read it sounds even more tempting.

I am totally sick of GRUB, even though it is what seems to be the most popular,and is what normally is used as the "default" when any linux system is installed, that is what the install ISO's use, but anyway, that is another topic, over the years, "grub failing", has been a problem for me , many times.

Debian Configuration :: After Installing GRUB Win 7 Fails To Boot

Nov 26, 2015

I have a ~ 2008 notebook (Compaq CQ60-137EL) on which I had Windows 7 only (it was sold with Windows Vista installed).

Later I installed Debian Jessie 8.2.0 Stable ("Graphical expert install" from DVD), along with GRUB as a boot manager (I chose not to install it on the EFI removable media path).

Since then, if I select Windows 7 on the GRUB boot screen, I see "Starting Windows...", and after few seconds the screen flashes for a moment, and then the PC reboots: I see the bios screen, followed by the GRUB screen again.
What's even more weird about this is the fact it just happens only in like ~50% of the cases. In the other 50%, Win7 starts flawlessy.

I even tried to install Debian first, then Windows 7, then re-install GRUB, but I got the same issue, even with both system freshly installed.

On 6 attempts, 3 times it worked and 3 times it didn't.

On my desktop PC I'm in the same setting, but I don't have this issue. I think it may be related with the fact I have Win7 on a SSD and I installed Debian on a separate HDD, while on my notebook, as you can imagine, there's just one single HDD.

Debian :: Grub Screen At Startup With Dual Boot Lenny And Karmic Koala

Feb 1, 2010

I have a laptop with Karmic Koala in dual boot with Lenny. I need to reinstall Lenny however if I do that I will loose Karmic Koala in the grub screen because of the new version of grub that comes with Karmic Koala. Which means that I will need to reinstall Karmic Koala after Lenny so that they both appear in the grub screen at startup. If I reinstall only Lenny is it possible to use Gparted to change the boot back to Karmic Koala and have them both in the grub screen again? Or is there another way around it?

Debian Configuration :: Restoring Boot Record After GRUB Installation?

Mar 11, 2011

I have recently installed Debian alongside Vista on the same boot menu using the GRUB booting device. Only problem is, I couldn't boot Vista at all any more, so I removed my Debian installation from that drive. But the GRUB boot record persists, I don't have the Recovery disk to restore my old system, so I have to find a way to manually remove the GRUB track and put the old record in its place. I assume there was a copy made of it by the installation program, now my only problem is to find that file and copy the content back in place (at the address at the very beginning of the drive) all that by using Linux code, since that is all I have left. Being new to this game, I have no idea how to begin writing the right command for a job like this

Debian Configuration :: Decrypt Luks Volume With A Keyfile On Boot From Grub

Jul 6, 2015

I have install a debian jessie in my laptop, i create a lvm volume with /, /home, etc and a /boot partition outside. the i move this partition to the lvm volume and boot from it, everything it´s okay and it works.

The problem is that wen boot it ask me the passphrase to load grub, and then, when grub loads the kernel, it ask me again the passphrase.

I read that i can pass a key file to the initramfs to solve this, but where i see it, he uses mkinitcpio, and i can´´t find this package in the debian repos, it an arch package, also i tried this option [URL] ...

But it asking me the passphrase 3 times, and the third fails, the sistem starts, but i read the fail in the log.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot With Debian - Write /dev/sda1 To The Bootloader Rather Than /dev/hda1 Using Grub-mkconfig?

Aug 19, 2010

I installed Debian on my PC and then installed Ubuntu. This worked fine and I could dual boot between the two. The PATA disk was /dev/hda on debian and (I think) /dev/sda on Ubuntu. I copied the entire disk to a sata disk using dd from knoppix and put the PATA one to one side. Now the Ubuntu comes up fine but when I boot debian, it complains about references to /dev/hda1, which is present in grub - root=/dev/hda1. Debian now expects sda references rather than hda references. How do I persuade Ubuntu to write /dev/sda1 to the bootloader rather than /dev/hda1 using grub-mkconfig?

Now Im thinking maybe I should reserve the 1TB drive for data and install two smaller drives, one to hold XP and one to hold Ubuntu and their respective programs. In this latter config, the OS and programs would not be mirrored. Im new to dual booting and linux.
