partition #1 for (,msdos1)/boot/grub.

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Does Not Detect Windows XP On U9.10 / Make It Possible?

Apr 2, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 yesterday on my computer. I had Windows XP and Windows 7 (I deleted the Windows 7 partition and installed Ubuntu 9.10). However, after installing Ubuntu, I couldn't access the grub boot menu. So I googled, and I found out how to make the menu show up again. That was okay. But Windows XP didn't show up. So I googled a bit more, searched the forums, and I added the following entry to my 40_custom file code...

As far as I know, that should work. The uuid I entered there is the one that gparted told me was the uuid of the partition. However, this isn't working. I get a disk read error when I try to boot my Windows XP.

According to my gparted, my Windows XP drive is inside an extended partition? I wonder if that has any influence on why I'm getting the disk read error, or anything. It's either that, or my 40_custom entry is wrong. I've been trying to sort this out for a while now, and I'm afraid I'm not getting anywhere with it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 Cannot Detect XP Unlike Win 7

Jun 12, 2010

I have a laptop Acer Aspire 5538 (AMD Turion 64x2). I just installed Ubuntu 10.04. I like it but I still need windowsXP to run some ''old'' software. So Installed WindowsXP Media Center and Windows7 Home Premium (from my recovery DVDs). But Grub2 only detect Ubuntu and Windows7, and not WindowsXP! I undated Grub2, reinstalled it, manually modified it but no success. I finally reinstalled WindowsXP M.C. and reboot on Ubuntu by reinstalling Grub2 with the liveCD : no solution! (even before installing Ubuntu, Windows7 wasn't able to detect WindowsXP).

Fedora Hardware :: Unable To Detect Monitor

Sep 10, 2010

I run Fedora 13 in Oracle VM VirtualBox. Version 3.2.8 r64453

I did not realize that you had to install Guest Additions but after much reading I finally got it done. After I was done the max size I could go to was 1024x768. Using detect monitors I still get "Unknown" as a result.

I really don't know what else to try as I am not to proficient with the OS. I would like to run it at my monitors native resolution so I can have it on my other monitor. IE: Monitor 1-Vista. Monitor 2- F13

Monitor: Dell 1907FP native resolution. 1280x1024
Video Card: Dual Radeon 4800HD

I thought it might be something with the video card but I can not get the ati drivers to load at all. I have been unsuccessful finding drivers for the monitor.

Ok, so I got really bored and started trying it with other OS's. I installed Ubuntu and after I added the User Additions I was unable to get anything over 1024x768. Fedora is still stuck 1024x768. I also installed XP and it works like a champ.

Dec 5, 2010

I have a rocketraid 2640x4 with 2 500gb HDDs configured in my system. I also have a 3.5" usb floppy disk plugged in with the SCSI drivers When I boot the RHEL 5.5 x86 32 bit installer, i type in "linux dd" at the first screen. Then it asks me to load my drivers via the floppy disk which i do. When i get to the installation page of Linux after entering my serial key, it is not able to detect my HDD so i am unable to proceed. I have tried using drivers for RHEL 5, 5.1 and 5.2. There are no drivers for 5.5.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 Doesn't Detect WindowsXp After Karmic Install

Feb 15, 2010

I installed Ubuntu9.10 on a USB hard drive attached to my laptop. Laptop has pre-installed XP in the in-built hard-drive. Point to be noted is that my hard-drive is protected via encryption software called Pointsec.

The installation of Ubuntu on the USB hard drive went through fine and I'm able to boot Ubuntu from it.

But now the problem is, GRUB2 fails to detect the Windows XP installation.

Can someone tell me how I can force GRUB2 to boot Windows XP from hd0,0?

The GRUB1 way of configuring /etc/grub/menu.lst does NOT seem to work with GRUB2.

Fedora :: Dual Booting - Grub2 To See F15 Or Be Installed Using Grub2?

Jul 11, 2011

I installed Fedora 15, which was my first real departure from Debian based Linux OSs. I absolutely love the new Gnome 3, and was able to configure F15 to work as I wanted it to. On rebooting I realized that there was no boot loader screen, that F15 just booted and didn't give me a choice as to which OS I wanted to use. Eventually I was able to configure grub to let me see the boot loader and added my old boot loader as a choice. This worked well, maybe not a perfect solution, but it worked. This weekend I installed LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) to another HDD. LMDE uses grub2 and after the install F15 was not recognized.

Two questions: Is there a way for grub2 to see F15? or Can F15 be installed using grub2? I really don't mind re-installing from scratch.

Fedora :: GDM Unable To Detect Any Users After Today's Update: "No Seat-id Found."?

Dec 8, 2009

This was weird. I just updated my software, through a "setenforce 0" and root shell access since the last update before this left me with a bugged GUI updater, restarted and then logged back in to . . . no users visible in GDM at all. There was nothing but a huge "Other" box staring me in the face. I got the idea to check /var/log/messages and then the GDM greeter logs from there, and here is what I came up with.

gdm-simple-slave[2259]: WARNING: Unable to close session: no session open#012

Fedora :: Load Grub2 From Grub4dos / Load Directly Grub2 Core Without Passing By Bootstriping Code?

Jan 24, 2011

I want to load grub2 from grub4dos.I want to load directly the grub2 core. I know how to load first 512 bytes from some patition by chainloader and load grub2, but what I need is to load directly grub2 core without passing by bootstriping code (first 512 bytes).So, my first boot manager is grub4dos, then I can load grub2 and later I load Ubuntu. But I think I have to edit --set-root
What I dont know is how.

In hdd 0,7 (sda8) I have Ubuntu 10.10 and /boot/grub/core.img is in sda8 (hd0.7)

I tried this way:

title grub2
find --set-root /boot/grub/core.img
kernel /boot/grub/core.img

Ubuntu :: Virtualbox Unable To Detect USB Ports

Aug 13, 2011

I am running 11.04 with a dual boot of vista. I am also running virtualbox (downloaded from oracles site) I installed the extension pack from their website, I have added a new filter and I am in the user group but still virtualbox will not see the usb ports or the device plugged in. The reason for running virtualbox is if I can get the usb to work, I will then remove vista completely from my system and just virtualbox for the only two programmes that do not work in Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Detect WMID Device

Apr 22, 2011

So I bought an eMachine e250 from a friend of mine, and installed Backtrack on it. That worked fine, until I realised that I didn't like KDE, and decided to get the gnome-based Gnacktrack (based on Ubuntu 10.10, so I'm fairly sure they work the same). I also have a harddrive from an old laptop that I've scrapped with Ubuntu 10.4 that I run in the laptop, and fpr some bizzare reason, neither operating system is able to detect the wireless card. It worked fine with Backtrack (based on Noppix I believe), and I'm curious as to why the wireless card hates Ubuntu so much. I know that it's unable to detect the wireless card because on start-up it says "Unable to detect WMID device". I even added the wireless card from my scrapped laptop to the laptop, and that NIC was detected just fine. (though I can't use it because the antenna won't reach the slot for the secondary NIC)

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Unable To Halt (shut Down)?

May 31, 2010

I am trying to add an entry to grub2 to turn the computer off using the 'halt' command, but grub2 freezes and I have to manually reboot. I have tried both 'halt' and 'halt --no-apm', both with and without 'insmod halt' first. The 'reboot' command however works fine (even without 'insmod reboot') so it doesnt seem to be an acpi/apm issue. This was all tested at grub2's command line, so there isnt any problems with syntax in the config file. The laptop I am trying this on is an Acer Aspire One, I am using Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 (Lucid), and a more or less default config for grub2 (GNU GRUB 1.98-1ubuntu6) as far as modules are concerned.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Detect The Wireless Network

Apr 6, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell M6400, using Wubi for Windows 7 x64. My ISP sets my router password at source, meaning I'm unable to disable wireless encryption (which is WPA 2 Personal). That being said, I don't seem to be able to detect *any* wireless networks (I can still connect via ethernet, which does not require the password).

I'm not certain where the problem is, so I'll outline my steps and what the results were:
Under "System > Administration > Hardware Drivers" I have the "Broadcom STA proprietary wireless driver" installed (for BCM4311-, BCM4312-, BCM4321-, and BCM4322- based hardware)
The driver is activated and currently in use. When I type

"nm-tool", I get NetworkManager disconnected
- Device: eth2 -----------------------------------------------------------------
Type: 802.11 WiFi

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 Unable To Detect Maximum Resolution

Jun 20, 2010

Ubuntu 8.04 used to detect my display resolutions fine, but this version is unable to detect my max. resolution and I get lock-ups when I use the live disk without the "nomodeset" option.
My display config is:
lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)

Detected resolutions (with nomodeset option):
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 2048 x 2048
VGA connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 267mm x 200mm
800x600 85.1 + 85.1 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
1024x768 60.0*
832x624 74.6
640x480 85.0 75.0 72.8 75.0 59.9
720x400 85.0 70.1
640x400 85.1
640x350 85.1

The resolution 1152x864 is missed. This was a bug I had earlier reported on Intrepid (9.04).
My OS:
Linux ubuntu 2.6.32-21-generic #32-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 16 08:10:02 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
I downloaded this 2 days ago. Also I was stumped at no kernel messages on any virtual terminal! How can I enable the printks?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Detect Hard Drive

Aug 3, 2010

my last hard drive had bad sectors so we got a new hard drive from newegg. this is a brand. new. hard drive. never been formatted before. so i started with the windows setup disc to get it to partition the drive and give kubuntu (working off 10.04 its ordered from canonical) something to work off. it still didn't work. so i got gparted on here to see if it could - im running off the live cd - do anything with it and i find that kubuntu doesn't even recognize there is a hard drive there. i got into the terminal to check the sudo lshw -C disk thing and it swears 'C' is my cd drive.

My bios is also as high as it can go, they stopped making my board. so. any ideas? i cannot install windows as i have lost the key so getting this installed and fixed has to be done through ubuntu on a live cd.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Detect Private Key File?

Sep 17, 2010

I'm running Karmic Koala on my laptop and I'm attempting to connect to my university's secure wireless network. I was directed here by the university's computer help websiteI've followed all the steps, but when I open the wireless network authentication applet and try to browse to my private key, I can't find it. The "chose your private key" window claims to be looking for "DER, PEM, or PKCS#12 private keys (*.der, *.pem, *.p12)," and while my private key file shows up as a .p12 file when I open that location with my file browser, the file doesn't show up when I try and browse to it from the authentication applet. I've attached an image which shows the file in one window, but not in the other f clarification.
