Fedora Installation :: Default Boot Loader On F14?

Dec 12, 2010

Brand new to Fedora. I installed F14, the 64 bit version today. Just wondering, during the install, there really wasn't a lot of options regarding which bootloader to use nor options (use a graphical or text mode).So... what bootloader did Fedora install on my system? Can I modify it? I'd like to get rid of that ugly blue-ish back ground among other things.

Ubuntu Installation :: Editing GRUB Settings - Set Windows 7 64 Bit As Default OS In The Boot Loader Instead Of 10.10

Jan 18, 2011

I am a new Ubuntu user, and I am attempting to set Windows 7 64 bit as my default OS in the boot loader instead of Ubuntu 10.10. I have entered the command gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst into terminal, and the menu.lst file does open. However, this file appears to be completely blank, which does not seem to make sense and is preventing me from changing the boot order.

Fedora Installation :: Repair To The Grub Boot Loader To Boot Into Win 7 ?

Oct 23, 2009

I have XP, Win7 Pro and F 11 installed. Before I installed F 11, Win 7 boot mgr was working fine. I then installed F 11 and I went to System/Admin/bootloader to edit it and it wouldn't bring up the boot loader. In the attachment was the error msg. Now my only option when I boot up is F 11.

I do not have access to the Win 7 DVD only the F 11 install disk since I am on a fishing trip and need to use Win 7. How can I repair to the grub boot loader to boot into Win 7?

Fedora Installation :: Multi Boot System - Set Up The Boot Loader ?

Mar 18, 2010

I'm trying to install Fedora onto a computer that has Windows XP on the first of two SATA drives. Windows 7 is on the second drive.

I installed Fedora no problems on a 14 gig free space I created on the first drive and told it where and what my other OS's were. Fine so far. I didn't tell it to overwrite the MBR on the XP (first) drive. I took the second option which I "think" put the boot loader on the fedora partition.

All good - till I rebooted and I just saw my Windows 7 loader with my options for XP and Windows 7 but no Fedora.

So, if I overwrite the MBR on the first drive, will that mean I can't access my Windows 7 installation?

How SHOULD I set up the boot loader?

Fedora Installation :: Can't Find A F11 Entry In Grub Boot Loader?

Jun 10, 2009

I successfully installed Fedora 11 from the DVD iso. At the end, the installation program prompts me to reboot the system. But when the boot loader appears after rebooting, there are only the old entries.

I have 2 IDE disks and one sata disk. The first IDE disk is hd0, the second IDE is hd1. The SATA disk is hd2. In the setup, I selected hd0 to install grub. Fedora 11 was installed on the SATA disk (hd2).[edit] I forgot to say, that Fedora 10 is on /dev/sda and Fedora 9 on /dev/sdb

Fedora Installation :: Keeping The Fedora Boot Loader?

Jun 5, 2010

I really hope this is revelant here, and that someone can help. I have been using fedora for a while now, and I love it. However my brother has started using ubuntu, and wants me to at least try it, which I agreed to. I have created a partition for ubuntu, using Gparted, in fedora 13. My question is, how do i install ubuntu onto this existing partition, whilst keeping the Fedora boot loader, which I think is absolutely fantastic, and would love to keep. In summary; how to install ubuntu on an existing partition, and add it to the fedora boot loader options?

Fedora Installation :: Grub Boot Loader Doesn't Work For Core 12 And WinXP?

Jun 7, 2010

I have an HP Pavilion m7480n PC with Windows XP installed on the C-drive. I successfully installed FC 12 onto the spare USB drive. When I rebooted the PC all I got was a blinking underscore at the extreme upper left position of a totally black screen. After a bit of experimenting I found that if I hit the F1 key during the boot process, go into the BIOS setup, do nothing within the setup, and press ESC to get out of the setup then the PC will go back into the boot cycle a second time. During the second time however a small text message appears with words to the effect "Press any key to enter GRUB..." after which the GRUB splash screen comes up with the choice for FC 12 or "Other" (referring to Win XP). At that point I can boot into either one.

General :: Grub Boot Loader Installation In Dual Boot Machine After Windows 7 Installation?

Mar 23, 2010

I had a dual boot machine with fedora 12 and windows vista and I could use grub boot-loader to switch between two. Few days ago windows got corrupt and I have to reinstall it. I put windows 7 now and as usual it erased grub. So to reinstall I put the fedora 12 installation CD on and followed some usual setup steps. When I got the command line I issued the command "grub-install /dev/sda" (sda not hda because It showed bunch of sda, sda1..) but surprisingly it said grub command not found. I remember doing it before while it worked fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Boot 10.04 Via Windows XP Boot Loader

Jul 28, 2010

I have 2 HDDs:

HDD 1 (sda) with Windows XP installed on sda1 and four more partions.

HDD 2 (sdb) with three NTFS-Partitions (sdb1, 5 and 6) and Ubuntu 10.04 (sdb7) + Swap-Partition (sdb8).

I would like to boot Ubuntu using the Windows XP boot loader, i.e., having an entry there to choose Ubuntu and start my installation of Ubuntu 10.04. I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 on sdb7 and told the installer to install the grub2 boot loader to /dev/sdb (should it have been /dev/sdb7?). When using the boot selection option of my bios and choosing the second HDD Ubuntu starts without problems.

I used dd if=/dev/sdb of=bootsect.lnx bs=512 count=1 to copy the mbr of my second HDD and copied the file bootsect.lnx to my c: drive. Then added C:ootsect.lnk = "Ubuntu Linux" to my Windows boot.ini. When rebooting my computer I get the option "Ubuntu Linux" in the XP boot loader. Choosing it I come to a black screen with a blinking white cursor. All I want to do is not use Grub 2 as my primary boot loader but instead leave my WinXP installation untouched and start Ubuntu from within WinXP boot loader. This has been working just fine with my old Ubuntu installation.

Ubuntu Installation :: Vista Boot Loader Missing After 10.10 Installation?

Nov 12, 2010

I have just installed ubuntu with a USB key, I have Vista installed in drive C: and I created a partition (L: ) and installed Linux root (/ ) in that one.When there was the screen where I could choose the boot loader i left the default option instead of choosing Windows Vista Loaderand now I can't boot Vista anymore.

In grub i see a windows vista option, but that option brings me to a recovery partition and not to the real operative system. I know that vista is not broken because when I used wubi I was able to boot from the vista bootloader without any problems, but I never could boot vista from grub because it brought me to that recovery partition.I can access all my files on the disk from ubuntu, but I would like to be able to restore the vista boot loader and use again windows when I need it.Is there a way to restore vista's boot loader? I tried to do automatic startup repair from the vista recovery cd but it says that no problem could be found.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Boot Loader Is Missing?

Jun 20, 2010

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 and everything was working fine. Last week I was away from home and when I returned, my wife told me that she cannot boot in Ubuntu. We have used dual boot for Windows Vista and Ubuntu. Now only Windows was working. So I created a LiveCD from Ubuntu website and tried to boot.

I can boot using LiveCD. Then I tried to install grub. I forgot exact commands I found online, but something to do with /dev/hda1) and now everything is messed up. It does not show boot menu (to select OS) at all. It only shows grub> window. I believe that the OS on the computer is alright, just the boot option is gone. I do not know how to get back the grub.

When booting from LiveCD,df /boot shows filesystem as aufs (no idea what it is). If I go through File browser, I can see the windows files and my Ubuntu installation. So I believe OS is okay, just not the boot loader.

Ubuntu Installation :: Restoring W7 Boot Loader

Nov 17, 2010

I've spent the better part of two days googling and trying out fixes. I've done quite a bit but still have the same issue.I want Ubuntu to be my secondary operating system. As such I'd like Ubuntu to be on the W7 bootloader, not W7 on Grub. This is, mainly, so that I can press power and not sit at the computer to manually select W7.I've tried EasyBCD, many times, but when I select both Grub (legacy) and Grub 2, add it, overwrite the MBR, and reboot, it wipes out the bootloader entirely, and Windows 7 boots up.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Loader Getting Clogged?

Jan 19, 2011

I don't know if this is something that happens by default, or there is a problem somewhere.Here is the problem.A couple of days ago, I set-up my new system with a dual-boot set-up; Win7 and Ubuntu 10.10 64bit.Once I got everything up and running on both OS's (minus updates), everything was going smoothly. Well, most things were running smoothly on both OS's before and after updates.Ubuntu happily installed a boot-loader which provided a slightly confusing list of options.Here is the initial list and in this order;

Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic (recover mode)
memory test (memtest86+)
