Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Partition Without Harming Window's Partition?

Apr 18, 2010

I currently have both Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows XP installed on my PC. I want to remove the Ubuntu partition and leave the Windows partition. The question that I have is that when I remove it, Grub will go with it. Will that mess up my Windows partition?

What I need to do is remove Ubuntu and add the hdd space back to the other partition. I just don't want Grub's absence to keep me from being able to load Windows.

Software :: Fedora 12 And 13 Packages Installed When Installing GNote And Inkscape On Fedora 14?

Dec 23, 2010

I recently upgraded from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14 and noticed something strange when I used Yum to install GNote and Inkscape. Yum installed the Fedora 14 version of the programs, but installed some dependencies that were actually from Fedora 12 and 13. The output below shows what packages were installed.

Yum output:

==================================================================================================== ===================================================================
Package Arch Version Repository Size


When I ran the yum command to list all of the packages for the dependencies in question, it only listed the version for Fedora 12 or 13. Is there something wrong with one of my repositories or do these Fedora 14 programs actually use packages from previous versions of Fedora?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Can't Properly Partition Both Hard Drives - Simple Way To Create Partition On Drive?

Jun 22, 2011

I installed Redhat Enterprise 3 on one of my servers. In my haste I didn't properly partition both Hard Drives and only properly partitioned one of them. Thus now I have

/dev/sdb1 478711768 137858256 316536328 31% /
/dev/sda1 101089 15346 80524 17% /boot

Where /dev/sda1 is actually a 80 GB hard drive. Is there anyway I can safely and easily repartition the unpartitioned space without causing a huge mess? I have a very important Oracle database on /dev/sdb1 and thus I want to be able to back it up on the second disk. I can create a partition on that drive?

General :: Windows 7 Installation Without Harming Current Linux/GRB2 Setup

Oct 4, 2010

Half of my hard drive is an unused partition, which is formatted ext2 which is just temporal and has no specific intention of mine. This unused partition has its own swap area, which is also a temporal and not important.

So my HD is:

Now, I'd like installing Windows 7 using these sda2 and sda4 partitions without corrupting current Linux installation and its GRUB2 setting(I'd likt to reconfigure the GRUB2 after successfully installing the Windows image, for the dual-boot).

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Overwrite Windows Vista With Windows XP / Without Harming Ubuntu?

Sep 10, 2010

I would like to replace Windows Vista with Windows XP without uninstalling my Ubuntu partition. I use ubuntu 90% of the time, but would like to have XP for games and for my printer. Is there a way to just overwrite Vista and not Ubuntu? I booted my XP disk and it came up with many different partitions, 4. I wasn't sure what my Vista one was named or which one I should overwrite.

Fedora :: Cannot Boot F15 Installed On New Drive

Jun 18, 2011

I added a new drive to an existing system and installed F15 on the new drive, and all was well. I copied what I needed from the old drive and removed it from the system. Now it won't boot. It drops to a shell with the message.

ACPI: Expecting a [Reference] package element, found type 0
I don't know if that's relevant, but dmesg reveals that it can't find the root device:

dracut: inactive '/dev/vg_server100/lv_swap' [9.81 GiB] inherit
dracut: inactive '/dev/vg_server100/lv_home' [1.76 TiB] inherit
dracut: inactive '/dev/vg_server100/lv_root' [50.00 GiB] inherit
dracut: inactive '/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00' [1.13 TiB] inherit
dracut: inactive '/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01' [1.94 GiB] inherit
dracut: Volume group "vg_server1" not found
dracut: Skipping volume group vg_server1
dracut: Warning: No root device "block:/dev/mapper/vg_server100-lv_root" found
dracut: Warning: LVM vg_server1/lv_swap not found

Server1 was the volume group on the drive that was removed. I thought I had removed that volume group in the disk manager. Server100 is the new volume group. In the shell, I can mount the root partition and look at its contents. It all seems to be there, but the /boot directory is empty. How I can get this system to boot up normally?

I discovered this entry in my /etc/fstab file:
UUID=... /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
I guess that's the part that's really missing? How I would go about recovering it? The boot partition is in tact, and so is the root partition. So I'm still wondering why dracut thinks there is no root device.

Fedora :: Can't Acess Partition After Installing F11?

Sep 20, 2009

I have my hard drive partitioned 40GB for boot and 540 for media. When installing fedora I chose the option to replace the existing linux installation. By not clicking the option "use whole drive" I thought I would easily still be able to acess my media drive (which has a LOT of media on it) I dont know if I chose the right options. Anyways, the partion table has been changed. I know the data is still their, the media partition was at the end of drive, and im guessing fedora installs on the beginning of the drive, so I am hoping none of my data was written over, but I have no idea. Every othe linux Install I have done, I have still been able to acess my media partition, but on those installatons I was sure I was doing it right, but on the fdora installation

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 In A Second Partition Of The Hard Drive - Windows XP And Windows 7

Oct 24, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP running each one in a partition of two different hard drives. I want to install Windows 7 in a second partition of the hard drive where Ubuntu is running. Windows 7 did not see the hard drive where Ubuntu is running. So I understand that I need to format the partition where Ubuntu is running, install Windows 7 and later on Ubuntu 10.04 which will create the boot for the three systems. But I want to backup Ubuntu's installation, and after installing Windows 7, install the backup. So I will need to add the file for the dual booting. How can I do it? Is it there any piece of software that could create the three booting option that I need?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Installed Over Windows Boot Loader ?

Jun 18, 2010

I have two hard drives, one (hard drive C) is 250GB and is the first hard disk. The second (hard drive Z) is 1000 GB and is the second hard disk in order. There used to be windows XP on C and Windows 7 on Z.

Because I installed 7 to Z from XP which is on C, it put the Windows Boot Loader on hard disk C. I didn't know this until now.

When I installed Fedora, I gave it all of C to install on. That messed up something because the Windows Boot Loader was on that drive, so grub didn't list it in the OS's to load. I had to add it manually, and got it working correctly so it had an entry for the partition that Windows 7 was on. This didn't work however, because Windows 7 on drive Z didn't have it's NTLDR on that drive, so now I have a 7 installation without an NTLDR on Z and a Fedora install on C. I am sure grub is working properly because when I change the load order of the hard drives to load Z first, it gives the same error:

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart

or something along those lines.

Is there a way to get Z to have an NTLDR again and be able too boot Windows 7? I really hope I didn't mess up my entire 7 installation because of this.

Fedora :: Drive Partition Not Recognized At Boot?

Jan 1, 2010

I have a weird problem with an sata partition. This drive is onle volume of an md raid set, and has one partition filling the whole drive. of type "fd" ( linux raid autodetect). When my machine boots, the drive containing this partition is present as /dev/sdc. However, the partition is not - there is no /dev/sdc1. If I look at the partition table in fdisk, all appears to be fine. If I do anything that causes the partition table to be rescanned (such as writing in fdisk, or running partprobe, ... ), the partition shows up fine at that point and all data is present and when I assemble the RAID using it, its in sync. This drive is attached to the same (motherboard) controller as my other drives which have their partitions recognized just fine.

Fedora :: Cloning A Partition To A Bigger Drive?

Jul 28, 2011

When I first switched from windoze to Fedora I trimed a bit of space off the end of the HDD, formatted it to ext3 and installed Fedora 14 there. I have now completely rebuilt the machine and put a 2TB drive in. My intention was to upgrade to Fedora 15, but after a few weeks trying to get the new gnome to anything resembling useful, I gave up and decided to go back to the reliable 14.

I tried the old drive, and everything worked great, so I though no problem, clone that over to the new drive, and job done, no need to mess about for weeks getting all my settings back. I booted from the old drive with both connected and ran gparted, It sees both drives but won't let me copy the old partition. It complains about 'LMV is not yet supported' I tried booting from a gparted ISO with the same result.

How can I get this sorted? I've got work needing done, I don't have time to start from scratch (*AGAIN*),

Fedora Installation :: Installing Second OS On USB Hard Drive

Nov 7, 2010

I have Fedora 14 installed on my usb drive, works perfectly. What I would like to do is:- install Open Suse on the same drive, sharing the same swap, boot section but splitting or resizing the home partition, can this be done? I installed Fedora by booting up from a disc, plugging in my usb hard drive and then installing to that. Would I follow the same procedure for my 2nd installation, I think so but am open to correction. My laptop bios supports booting from disc and I have some 204 gig of free home space.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Grub On Windows Partition?

Mar 8, 2011

I just installed ubuntu on a partition on my laptop that already had a windows7 partition. First I had Kubuntu installed, but I decided to just try Ubuntu instead. I did things the right way when I installed Kubuntu and I could switch between OSes on reboot. Then when I installed Ubuntu I accidentally put grub on /dev/sda1 instead of /dev/sda. I didn't even notice for a while because I never felt like I needed to go back to Windows until I felt like playing starcraft 2. That's when I noticed that when the boot options screen appears and I select Windows, the screen goes black, a cursor flashes in the upper left corner for about a second, then the boot options screen reappears.

If I boot using my windows 7 cd and go into recovery, get a command prompt and type Bootrec.exe /FixMbr and Bootrec.exe /FixBoot, the options appear to complete successfully, but then when I reboot, I get a permanent flashing cursor.

If I follow that by inserting my parted magic cd and running testdisk and overwriting the mbr, I get back to the first situation where the boot options screen will appear, but the windows boot loader just returns me to the boot options screen. I can get into ubuntu, at least. Whenever I run testdisk I can't replace the boot with the backup boot because I'm pretty sure it's identical to the flawed one.

Ubuntu :: GRUB Error: No Such Partition (No Windows OS Installed)

Jul 3, 2011

I've been serching the forum for hours and every thread related to "GRUB error: no such partition" that i've read relates to fixing the issue for users with windows OS also installed or trying to get windows to boot.

How it happened: I edited partitions and now I get GRUB error: no such partition. I ONLY have Linux installed.

I was able to boot the OS by typing:

set partition=(hd0,1)/boot/grub
set root=(hd0,1)
