Ubuntu Installation :: Edit /dev/hda In Grub 2.0?

May 28, 2010

I had windows 7 installed on my system prior to the installation of Lucid Lynx. The boot loader for windows is installed in /dev/sda1. The main windows installation is in /dev/sda3 Ubuntu is installed in /dev/sda5.

The grub update has added a loader for windows 7 for /dev/sda3 instead of /dev/sda1. How do i change that to /dev/sda1 in grub 2.0 as it says that it is not recommended to edit grub.cfg in grub 2.0. I know i can add something in custom section but I am not a pro in linux hence i'm not sure how to add that

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Edit GRUB ?

Jul 6, 2010

I had to followed this tutorial on how to Install ubuntu on my Toshiba Satellite M35X-S114. I am stuck on step 2 now. I used one of the options and was able to get Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 onto my laptop. But now on my first restart I have to edit the GRUB menu and change the boot option so I will no longer then the black screen when booting. Only problem is I can't get to the edit GRUB menu. I turn the computer on select Ubuntu to boot. A black screen shows up I hit e to edit then the Ubuntu loading screen comes up (The one that says Ubuntu and has the dots below it) That screen stays up for about a half a second and it goes back to black and hangs there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Edit Grub.cfg To Boot Win7 First?

Feb 20, 2010

I set up a dual boot system with Win7 and Ubuntu 9.10. Ubuntu is the first OS listed in the boot menu. I would like to change the boot order so Windows is first. Also after running a few updates I now have multiple boot items listed for Ubuntu that I'm sure are no longer needed. Having never edited Grub and searching through the forum, I'm asking help. I going to guess that I want to edit grub.cfg. If so, what do I need to change within the following information?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Edit Grub Default Boot?

May 2, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multi Booting On Two Drives - How To Edit Grub

Apr 7, 2010

I have two hard drives windows 7 is on one of them and Ubuntu 9.10 is on the other. Both drives are 320GB, but different models of drives by Seagate. Both drives are detected by the BIOS and both drives are detected by Windows, but only one drive is detected by Ubuntu during the installation process. I had to literally disconnect the Windows drive to get Ubuntu to recognize the drive I wanted it on. Now that Ubuntu is completely installed and a new Kernel has been downloaded and installed it finally recognizes both drives as existing.

There is some kind of problem with the Installer and the original Kernel that kept it from seeing the second drive. I will literally have to manually edit Grub to get it to boot the Windows drive. How do I edit Grub? and what kind of Grub command would do the trick? I searched for "multi-boot" and literally read them all, there was one thread about multi-boot on multi-drives, but it did not fit because the Installer recognized both drives with that thread. I have to change the boot order in the BIOS to get the drive to boot that I want currently.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Edit And Sound Card Not Detected

Aug 6, 2010

I'm a Linux noob, so please go easy on me! I've been desperate to get rid of my Windows install for a while now and have finally started to make the move over, but have a problem with my Ubuntu 10.04 install. I've scoured the help documentation and forum for days now without managing to resolve my problem, and have finally resorted to posting my problem. So I'm sorry if this has been covered elsewhere.

1 Installed Ubuntu on my laptop (Viglen Furtura S200) but the only way I have been able to get it to install and boot properly is edit the GRUB with the following acpi=off i915.modeset xforcevesa. I had to add these parameters even to boot the live CD as well. I think I'm right in assuming that this is forcing the use of a generic graphics driver, consequently leaving some visual features unavailable. I'm not really sure what turning acpi off is doing. Is it possible to resolve this? Is this the cause of problem number 2?

2 After install there is no sound. Sound preferences shows no hardware and ALSAmixer is empty when opened. I have followed the sound troubleshooting through and it looks like my sound card is actually being picked up on the board, but I fall at the point of checking the loaded ALSA Modules as my report shows that none are loaded?!

Ubuntu Installation :: Edit GRUB's Menu To Offer A Choice Between The 2 OSes?

Mar 30, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 (desktop version) and it performs flawlessly. Now I want to add a second hard drive to the same box, install Ubuntu 9.10 *server* on it, and use GRUB to control which one boots.

Problem is, I'm a Windows pro but a Linux n00b. Should I disconnect the first hard drive (the one with Ubuntu desktop) before I do the server installation on the second (new) drive? Also, how do I edit GRUB's menu to offer a choice between the 2 OSes?

Installation :: CentOS4.5 Edit Grub.conf - Says It Is A Read Only File ?

Nov 12, 2010

I am trying to edit my grub.conf file. I am logged in as root. It says it is a read only file. I have tried to set permission with chmod 777 and also tried through GUI. Using VI it says it's a read only file. Using nano it will not write either. I have two choices on boot up. I want to automatically go to second automatically. First at the moment is CentOS-4 i386 (2.6.9-55.ELsmp) and second is CentOS-4 i386 (2.6.9-55.EL).

Ubuntu Installation :: Edit Grub.cfg To Incorporate "noapic Nolapic"

Feb 8, 2010

how to edit the new grub.cfg file. For some reason when I start any version of linux none of my usb ports are powered unless I use these boot parameters (noapic nolapic). I have no idea why and I don't really care why, all I want to do is edit grub.cfg so it will incorporate these parameters automatically at startup.

P.S. Why change from the old menu.list?

Ubuntu :: Grub 2 - How To Edit Entries

Jul 13, 2010

I used Ubuntu a few years back. I simply was not able to make it my main OS since I couldn't get video calling to work reliably enough. Anyways I just installed and noticed my grub menu had many more entries then I have operating systems on my computer. Some reason they came up as duplicates. I have so far gathered they took away my menu.lst, they replaced it with something like etc/general/grub. It appears editing this file doesn't give me the ability to change entries. There are a few I would like to rename, and a few I want to get rid of. There is also some other file that is not supposed to be edited, will I need to edit this or is there another way around it? I found info like this, but it is only adding not removing.

Assuming that you already looked at the grub2 documentation and had trouble figuring out what to do, try this. Use sudo to edit /etc/grub.d/40_custom. It will look like this:
exec tail -n +3 $0 .....
After making the change, run 'sudo update-grub' to apply the change to your grub config.
TLDR: Grub 2 added extra entries, how do I remove and rename some?

Ubuntu :: How To Edit Kernels On GRUB

Apr 16, 2011

I have GRUB to allow me to boot windows and Ubuntu, i recently noticed that my list of kernels is getting clogged up with all the updates. So i went online to try and find out how to get rid of the unwanted partitions and also how to add new ones - i am going to attempt to hackintosh, and will need to know how to add kernels. What i found out was; the boot menu in GRUB had a file that is supposed to be called 'menu.lst' (Lst not ist), and that all i needed to do was edit this, that it wouldn't delete the kernels, but that i don't need to, i only need to add and remove links to kernels on the GRUB menu. The problem is that after looking, i don't have that menu.lst file, i have a file containing the image files for 'memtest', but not for my GRUB. I am using 10.04, i don't know what version of GRUB im using but i'm using whichever one comes with 10.04. Could someone please point me in the direction of the files i need to edit or what i need to do to add and remove kernels?

I have to do this after every reboot unless I edit the /etc/default/grub file (the second part of the tutorial). I'm not sure how to go about doing this since the article is very vague.

Ubuntu :: Edit Grub To Tell It What Disks It Should And Shouldnt Be Looking For?

Nov 15, 2010

I upgraded from Jaunty - Karmic - Lucid in very quick succession (and surprisingly succesfully too) but have encountered a slight issue with Grub on booting up since the upgrade.I had a removable HDD plugged in when the upgrade was going on. Now when I boot up Grub stalls and comes up with a message that its looking for SDD5 or something. I can tell it to skip this, but I'd rather it wasn't appearing at all.How can I edit Grub to tell it what disks it should and shouldnt be looking for?
