Software :: GRUB When Cloning Machine - Error: "An Error Occurred During Boot Loader Installation"

Feb 13, 2010

I used proprietary software (acronis trueimage) to clone an Opensuse 11.1 machine, onto another machine with somewhat distinct hardware (different motherboard, less memory). I expected to have to change entries in /boot/grub/menu.lst, /etc/fstab, etc. I was told a good way to do this was to use the Opensuse DVD's "repair installed system" feature.

When I ran the repair, I was informed that "bootloader configuration file contains errors". I attempted to re-install the bootloader, but received this unhelpful error: "An error occurred during boot loader installation. Retry boot loader configuration?". When I boot the system, I just see the text "GRUB ", followed by a flashing underscore character.

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Change Installation Location For Boot Loader

Dec 2, 2009

I am unable to change the installation location for the boot loader when installing Fedora 12 in the graphical installation mode. The 'Change device' button does nothing when I click on it during installation. I'd like to install the boot loader on my /boot partition. Is there some kind of bug that is preventing me from doing this?I am trying to install from the Fedora 12 386 DVD.

OpenSUSE Install :: Using GRUB And The Boot Loader Location Has Both "Boot From MBR" And "Boot From Root Partition"?

May 19, 2011

I just did a fresh install of 11.4 and I LOVE IT!!! One of the little issues I am having though, is that there is no login screen. No matter what settings I change it still auto-logs me in.

I am using GRUB and the Boot Loader Location has both "Boot from MBR" and "Boot from Root Partition". Is this right? I would think that I should just boot from the MBR.

Ubuntu Installation :: MBR With Vista - 'segment Offset Error' With The Boot Loader

Jan 10, 2011

I have had a strange experience in upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron 1545 also running Vista. I was upgrading from a Ubuntu 8.04 that I thought would be worth reporting/sharing in case others have had a similar experience. last week I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 using the live cd. Everything seems have gone smoothly. I could log in and out of ubuntu. After logging into Vista and logging out, the next time I tried to start the machine, there was a 'segment offset error' with the boot loader and there was no way of rebooting into anything except to use the Ubuntu live CD and go to a terminal and reinstall the bootloader. The same thing happened after logging in to Vista- this seemed to mess with the boot loader. Logging in first time was not a problem.

Yesterday I started again, wiped out 10.10 and re-installed ubuntu but version 10.04. Logging in and out of Vista is so far ok and I have not had any problems. I do not have an obvious logical explanation to the sequence of events unless there is a problem with the boot loader in version 10.10.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Un-install Boot Loader

Aug 27, 2010

I had to un-install Ubuntu as there were too many things that didn't work. Bummer, I wanted to like it and use it.Anyway it has left me with a screen at boot-up that I must choose between Windows and Ubuntu, that counts down automatically about30 seconds and then finally boots into Windows as the default. How can I get rid of this screen and go back to booting up into Windows normally?

Ubuntu Installation :: No Boot Loader Change After Install On XP

Aug 29, 2010

I have been installing 10.4 on machines with much success from USB. This is really the first Linux distro I have been excited about. I'm having problems on one machine though. It is a Dell Precision T5400 with a RAID 0 on Dell 6/iR Adapter controller. I booted to USB no problem, just like I did on my netbook, and laptop and did a pretty standard install. I'm dual booting to XP on this workstation. After the installer completed, I didn't see a grub menu. It's like nothing happened. Of course in Windows I see less drive space now since I had allocated that for Ubuntu in the Ubuntu setup. To clarify, I am not using Wubi.

Debian Installation :: Cannot Write Grub To Boot Location - Fatal Error

Jun 10, 2011

I have been following this tutorial [URL]. When I get to the end of the installation and try to install GRUB to the /boot partition I have set up it throws a fatal error at me. No explanation other than it can't write to the specified location. I double checked all the partition settings which were the same as the tutorial then skipped the GRUB installation and finished. The only thing I can think of that might be wrong is that the 250MB partition size specified for /boot in the tutorial is too small.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Boot Loader Failure On Clean Install

Feb 14, 2010

I'm having a problem installing Ubuntu Studio 9.10-alternate-amd64 onto my machine. This is the third attempt and I keep running into the same problem. Grub Boot Loader will only install to 16% when a screen pops up:

Ubuntu Installer Main Menu

Choose the next step in the install process:

choose language
configure the keyboard
detect and mount CD-rom
etc...

choosing the option "Install Grub boot loader on a hard disk" sends me back to the Grub install and once again at 16% the Ubuntu Installer Main Menu pops up. Choosing the option "Install the Lilo Boot Loader on a hard disk" resolves in an Lilo-install failure and i'm directed back to the Installer Main Menu. The option "Finish the installation" sends me back to the same menu..I'm stumped as to what to do... a disk check ensured me that the instal-dvd is valid though I can't get past this silly install menu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Loader Get Wiped If Did A Fresh Install Of Window 7 To The Drive?

May 23, 2010

I want to properly install Unbuntu on my multi boot pc. I would like to install to E partition which is currently ntfs. I have never installed Linux. What drive should the boot loader go? I can format E partition during install? Does it still need a swap file partition? If so, can that be made from E partition? How big? I'd like to have a boot menu to choose Ubuntu or a choice that takes me to the windows boot loader. Would that boot loader get wiped if I did a fresh install of 7 to the I drive? Also, what would be the proper way to upgrade Ubuntu? I see a lot of post where people are doing it wrong.

Here is my drives layout. Should install Ubuntu to my SSD J drive instead? I tried the live CD. Seems to work well. I have a Asus Max Formula MB, Phenom II 6core, ATI 4870. MB has a built in Via sound card. Not sure if that was working.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Missing Boot Loader - Manual Install Brings To GRUB CLI?

Dec 22, 2010

I am a brand new Ubuntu user that just tried to install on an old PC using the 10.10 desktop edition.During installation, I hit an error that the bootloader could not install, and after reading about it on the forums, opted to attempt to install it manually after. I have followed the tutorial located here,[URL].. on reinstalling GRUB2 from the liveCD, which I assume means to boot with the installation CD and select try Ubuntu (given the only other option is install, which I have tried twice) everything up to step 5 in that tutorial seems to run successfully, and I am given a message it is installed, but then when I reboot the system it does not open the GRUB2 menu, rather the CLI interface, which suggests there is no grub.cfg

So I am unable to refresh at the GRUB menu because that command is not recognized by the CLI (and it may not help if I am missing files, so I might have screwed up reinstalling them in step 5, or maybe the "Try Ubuntu" terminal doesn't alter the computer like I thought?)

Is there a guide somewhere to install Ubuntu without it asking for location/username/etc until first boot, and also have a reinstall? Kind of like what Dell does.I ask because I'm considering refurbishing some old PCs for one of those headstart places, where I'm not going to know who ends up with it.

Ubuntu :: Installation On Xp Error Message That Says:" Unbuntu Installer : And Error Occurred: Coercing To Unicode?

Nov 24, 2010

I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on xp,but, after waiting around 2 hours per instalation I received a error message that says:" unbuntu installer : and error occurred: coercing to unicode: need string or buffer, none Type found. for more information see log file C:1customerlocals-1 empwubi-10.10-rev197.109. I tried on one particion make just for it then I even tried on xp on C: I even put it on a pendrive but my bios is old and do not provide for usb booting. The other thing I have to try is making a boot cd but for one reason or the other , my recorder do not want to recornized my cds- rw and right now I do not have any regular blank cds . That will be my next step. Note: Ubuntu appears installed on the the control panel "add or removed programs" but not in "all programs" list. I'm a novice on this so maybe the answer was posted but I couldn't find it. Looking ahead to try it and be part of the linux team.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Pauses During Boot - Error Occurred During Network Process

Jun 6, 2011

While booting my fedora15, it gets stuck for about 5-6 minutes. Previously there was no problem. I don't know what made this problem. After going through the boot process, error occurred during network process. Using following command I got the result.

Code: # systemctl status network.service
network.service - LSB: Bring up/down networking

Also right after the long pause following messages are printed
Code: 261.742053 usb4-1: device not accepting address 4 error -7

I noted it down as soon as I saw the message after that long pause.
