i installed ubuntu inside windows but someone instead of uninstalling it directly deleted the ubuntu folder inside windows ,thinking that the partition will be deleted. but when i restarted the system and command prompt came and said unable to find boot record and i couldn't boot windows as well and a grub prompt came like grub>, then i inserted the windows boot cd and repair the boot record error but my problem is , instead of doing this way, can i do so by grub prompt directly without using winidows cd.
I think my Natty 64 bit install is missing a dependency for gk, even though it shows up install in Synaptic. I have also tried using Start up Manager and the changes I make there don't show up after restarting either. I just want to change the default boot to number 4, Windows. Any suggestions are welcome, but I have tried all the ones I've found on this forum so far and none have worked, including editing etc/grub/default and saving with sudo update-grub. That's when I get a "gk not found" error.
I have been trying to edit grub to make windows vista the default but whne i got to the menu.lst it is blank. I use this from the official guide gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst and it still comes up blank as well as sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
I have Ubuntu 9.10 64 Bit, and I also have Windows 7, and I want to make Win7 boot first and without having to manually choose it every time I restart, for my non-linux using family. I have tried the guides where it says you have to edit the "menu.lfg(or whatever it is)" and I don't have that file. I have looked, it's not there, the closest I found was "grub.cfg" and I can't make any sense out of it. I'm not unfamiliar with computers, I'm just relatively new to Ubuntu, and want to make the best out of it I can, I love it. I've tried going into GRUB, and and editing the Win7 Loader, but it doesn't work.
At the moment I have a list that has: Debian 6.0 + kernel information etc Debian 6.0 same again (Recovery Mode) Windows XP Home Edition etc when all I really want is: Debian 6.0 Recovery Mode Windows XP you used to be able to just edit menu.lst but it seems not now.
my Setup is Fedora 14 x64 + radeon hd 4830 i've downloaded .run package from ati site with latest driver for x64 systems. installed it, but didn't edited grub.conf becouse i didn't understood anything there (probably didn't spent enough time to get things understand) Now i've lost possibility to enter my Fedora system. during boot it lost it's modern blue boot screen (with filling drop), it was replaced by standard old boot screen with triple-color stripe. after this boot screen monitor start blinking going on and off. and on last step i'm getting "Fedora 14 boot bla bla bla something" on screen. nothing works except Ctrl+Alt+Delete. system reboots showing successful daemons shutting sequence. How can i edit grub menu from initial grub screen is it possible to it's own 'e' option or 'c' from grub command line?
I recently installed Fedora 12 on my system. I also have a Windows 7 running, which existed before the Fedora 12 installation.
When I start my computer, I get a screen that says 'Fedora is starting in 3 seconds' and I can either press a key to stop the boot or let it boot Fedora. If I stop the boot, I am taken to a 'choice screen' where I can choose between 'Fedora' and 'Other' with 'Other' being my Windows 7 OS.
Now, here's what I want to do. I want it to be so that, when I start my computer, I am directly taken to that 'choice screen' without the time limit or anything. And then I can choose which OS to boot. Also, is it possible to rename 'Other' to 'Windows 7' ?
How I can edit Grub in order to bring on these changes?
I dual booted Fedora 12 and Windows 7 and I have to hit the space bar in order to bring up the boot menu asking which OS to use. Then I see "Other" which is Windows 7, so how do I edit this to make it say Windows 7? This is what I see...
I just installed Fedora15 on my Netbook, I find it simply the best OS for this kind of PC. Anyway I have a little problem, Before install Fedora, I installed Windows 7. Now when I start my Netbook, Grub starts countdown, so far so good, then I press any key to enter OS selector where Windows is shown under "other" I would like to know if I can change the label "other" in "Windows7". Also, can I remove the Countdown and make grub starts by let me select which OS I want to start?
I have just installed F11 and want to change Nautilus to default Ubuntu and not open each folder in separate window. But I can't go to Edit/Preferences.Nautilus keeps crashing and I get this report:Quote:
I'm using Fedora 15 on my Dell Inspiron 17R (dual booting with Win7) I'm trying to edit the GRUB menu after an update, but when I try to gedit the menu.lst file, I'm getting an error.

So I need to become the root user in order to edit a grub file in a seperate partition, so I can get back into this partition. How can I become and stay as root user in the desktop environment? (I know you shouldn't do this, but I need it.)
I'm trying to set up some shares on this pc and every time I try to edit the /etc/exports file I get this error. I get the same error when I try to edit /boot/grub.conf file or any other files. Does not matter what editor I use. I'm running f14.
I have 2 harddisks 1 tb and 160 gb. In 1 tb fedora is installed. In 160 gb windows is installed. 1 tb is the master. 160 gb is not being detected. How to edit grub.conf file to edit the menu?
The content of grub.conf is # grub.conf generated by anaconda # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file # NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, e.g. # root (hd0,1) # kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2 # initrd /boot/initrd-[generic-]version.img #boot=/dev/sda default=1 timeout=5 splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz hiddenmenu title Fedora (220.127.116.11-45.fc14.i686) root (hd0,1) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-45.fc14.i686 ro root=UUID=bfc7d406-5ae3-4335-a2d8-37472dcfa7dc rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_LVM rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet initrd /boot/initramfs-22.214.171.124-45.fc14.i686.img title Other rootnoverify (hd1,0) chainloader +1
Debian if my first OS and i want to dual boot Fedora12.Ok i installed Fedora12 and choose not to install the bootloader(gonna use the one Debian installed)What i'm tring to do in Debain is edit my /boot/grub/menu.lst Here is what i have
after yesterday's update to kernel 126.96.36.199-72 my grub.conf didn't get updated and ll /boot shows that neither vmlinuz or initramfs exist for that kernel. uname -r though tells me I'm running 188.8.131.52-72.
How can I do that? and on another more reallystic matter how can I generate the missing files so I can manually update grub.conf?
I'm somewhat of a n00b. I have a dual boot machine running XP and Fedora Core 14. I like my default boot always to be XP. Right now, XP is default BUT every time there is an update to Fedora, it will change the default to Fedora. I now have to edit grub.conf to boot from xp again. Is there a way to make xp always as the default even after an update?
I have already had Vista installed on another drive and from what i've read on the webs you get to dualboot if you install ubuntu after vista. when i did install it (i installed on a blank hdd with no partitions, choosing the "erase entire disk" option since for some reason default option was attempting to eat a part of my windows 1 gb drive instead of using disk i specially made for it) and the grub 2 loaded for the first time, there was NO option to run vista. only 2 linux (normal and recovery) and 2 memtests. I've ran linux and went to google this. I found that i should add something to some config files in /etc/grub.d/From reading the readme file i understood i could add my own files that are named like NUMBER_SOMENAME and insert code into them. Because it said:Quote: For example, you can add an entry to boot another OS as01_otheros, 11_otheros, etc, depending on the position you want it to occupy inthe menu; and then adjust the default setting via /etc/default/grub. But then i found a file 40_custom that said:
The grub splash were you choose which os you want to load. Is there a way to change it and make it look like iuno.... lm5/6 or opensuse? Obviously I'd change the image. I just don't want to just change the image. How can I change it to boot windows by default instead?
I would like to be able to edit which OS is set as default on the first selection menu. I installed Ubuntu via windows xp. and have Grub 2 installed. When I start my computer, first I see is the BIOS, then I have a menu which allows me to select either windows xp or Ubuntu (windows xp is the default which I'd like to change to Ubuntu). Once I select Ubuntu, then I get the menu allowing me to select between the different upgrade versions.
From all the pages I read through on editing grub2 defaults, they only refer to the second menu that I get to pick between the upgrade versions or kernels (I think they are referred to). What I'd like to do is set Ubuntu as the defualt on the first menu screen, as Ubuntu is my preferred OS and it can load automatically, then I don't care what the default upgrade version is loaded (this i have understood how to edit).
I just had a quick question. I would like to burn a DVD to disc. The VOBs in the Video_TS folder have 3 Audio tracks: Stereo, Surround, Mono. By default it plays the Stereo track. Is there any way to change this? ffmpeg -i [insert_video_location] in the terminal gives me:
Will 0x80 always be the default? Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but I'm going to be playing these discs on a DVD Player without a remote (can't help it), so I won't be able to switch the audio on the fly, and they have no menus. You put it in, and it goes straight to the movie.
