Ubuntu Installation :: Installing Windows XP Dualboot - Error Along The Lines Of A Missing/corrupt Hal.dll

Jun 30, 2010

So I have a single hard drive with two partitions, and I am trying to install a dual boot of Windows XP and Ubuntu. However, I am having an issue installing the Windows XP component.

I keep getting an error along the lines of a missing/corrupt hal.dll after the first restart in the install. This has happened every time I tried to install windows XP, from several different discs, all of which I have confirmed to work on another computer.

I have tried several things for fixing this, from repairing the MBR and boot.ini to replacing hal.dll from hal.dl_, and nothing works. However, Ubuntu 10.04 installs and boots properly.

What I can do to get Windows to install properly?

Ubuntu Installation :: Could Not Start Windows - File Missing Or Corrupt

Mar 27, 2010

I used to have Windows XP Professional on my computer, then I decided to install Ubuntu but it didn't work for me it gave me really weird errors, I thought I uninstalled it, and then I installed Debian on my computer, Debian ran smoothly but when I tried to start Windows the GRUB from ubuntu appeared and when I tried to start windows again it showed and that the hal.dll was missing, I reinstalled Windows but still the same error appeared, this also affected my Debian GRUB so I had to install it again, I don't know what I should do in this case. How can I delete ubuntu's GRUB for good? I've already formatted my windows partition but it keeps using Ubuntu's GRUB.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Booting With Windows 7 - A WBM Screen Says The File: Ubuntuwinbootwubildr.mbr Is Missing Or Corrupt?

May 8, 2011

First off I must state that I am basically completely foreign to linux. I have 2 hard drives, one with windows 7 and storage partitions, and the other with my linux partition, linux swap, and unpartitioned space.I initially partitioned my drives with Disk Management in Windows 7. I created an NTFS partition on sda and installed Ubuntu from within Windows (a Wubi install I suppose). I originally intended to install by booting from the iso I burned onto a CD,but the installer was failing to load (fonts would change and it would error message). LiveCD was failing to load too in the same fashion. After hitting alt and tweaking the F6 settings, LiveCD successfully loaded (my very first taste of Ubuntu, albeit somewhat bland). I then decided to reinstall Ubuntu with proper linux partitions from within LiveCD. Now when I select Ubuntu in the Windows Boot Manager, a WBM screen says the file:

ubuntuwinbootwubildr.mbr is missing or corrupt. I do not know if this file is the problem or merely a symptom of it Below I have copied my Boot Summary (my apologies for the length and extra partitions):

I installed lilo and it boots. How do I installed grub again. Do I just use synaptic manager to uninstall lilo and install grub?

[code]....

I know grub2 does not work, giving me error: ntoskrnl.exe missing or corrupt. I did install grub-legacy and it worked, but I had to re-install squeeze due to other problems. So, now I want to replace lilo with grub legacy.

Ubuntu Installation :: Precautions To Take When Upgrading Windows On Windows/kubuntu Dualboot PC?

May 31, 2010

I have a Vista/Kubuntu dualboot, with grub2 as my loader. Because i have read that Windows likes to ignore something else present on the system and overwrite everything with itself. So i installed Vista, then Kubuntu.Now i want to upgrade my Vista to Win7. My question is - what should i do in order to keep my current dualboot intact (Grub2 as a loader, and kubuntu fully functional). I fear Win7 might even never ask me about keeping my kubuntu dualboot, just overwrite everything. PS: My bootinfoscript output

Ubuntu Installation :: Trying To Dualboot Windows 7 - Doesn't Recognise That Windows Is There

Jan 3, 2011

So I shrunk my Windows 7 partition. Now I have a 450GB partition with Windows 7 on it and a 50GB partition for Ubuntu that is unallocated space currently. So when I go to the setup for Ubuntu, booted into using my USB flash drive, it doesn't recognise that Windows is there. It thinks that the hard drive, all 500GB of it, is free space. Going into GParted, it also seems to think that the entire hard drive is a blob of unallocated space. According to tutorials online, this shouldn't be happening. It should recognise the two different partitions. So I went into Computer in Ubuntu (Live) just to double-check and indeed all my Windows files are there and I can still boot into Windows just fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 With Dualboot To Windows 7 ?

Oct 21, 2010

I have a problem installing ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) with dualboot together with windows 7.

The situation is a follows: on the pc is windows 7 (home premium) installed, the windows bootloader is in the MBR and THIS CANNOT BE CHANGED (it's not a private pc).

I wanted to do this the way I have done with the previous ubuntu realeaes I used (8.04 and 9.04): install everything normaly and only tell the installer to install GRUB into /dev/sda5 (root-partition of the ubuntu-System). Then I used

Code:

To copy the bootsector in a file and integrate this file into the Windows Bootloader. The problem is: this file has only zeros inside (00hex), so it seems, that there is no GRUB written into the bootsector of the linux-partition.

The whole procudure works without any problems using Windows 7 and ubuntu 9.04, but I want to have the new release of ubuntu!

Ubuntu Installation :: Dualboot Does Not Boot - Getting Std Error - Drive Too Slow

Nov 3, 2010

I have a Samsung N130 with XP and Ubuntu 10.04. One day I entered the Vista Loader in the GRUB 1.98 and it took me into the Samsung Recovery Partition!

Fedora Installation :: 12 - Error Bootmgr Is Missing When Try To Boot To Windows 7

Feb 12, 2010

My previous setup was Windows Vista on partition 1, Windows 7 on partition 2, and my recovery partition on partition 3. I'm trying to switch from vista to fedora (cuz I hate vista), so I removed partition 1 and 3, expanded partition 2 a bit (from 80 gig to 150), and moved it all the way to the left with gparted. This gave me a 150g partition labled sda2 as my first partition. I then installed fedora on the (about) 150g of free space. After going into fedora, I used fdisk /dev/sda with menu option f to fix my partition labels. Now I have Windows 7 on partition sda1, fedora's boot on sda2, and fedora on a logical volume in sda3.

My issue is that I have that same old error bootmgr is missing when I try to boot to windows 7. I checked my grub menu, my fdisk, it all looks good to me, so hopefully someone can help me out. If I'm unable to do this without reformatting, could someone please advise me on a program to clone my windows 7? I have a lot of expensive programs on there that I could, in theory, go back to the manufacturer and request a new copy, but I doubt if I even have any license keys written down and I don't know where they would be, so hopefully I can pull them all off and have them work on a new install. Contents of fdisk -l and cat /boot/grub/menu.lst to follow:

Fedora Installation :: DualBoot Windows Vista And 14 - Play All Media Formats ?

Dec 13, 2010

I am planning to buy a new system. I am planning to use fedora and windows vista (I have a legal copy with me and I dont want to buy a new one. That's why no windows 7 here).

How shoudl I proceed? Which OS to install first? I believe (from reading the threads) that I should install windows vista first and Fedora second.

The main question I have is this. I heard that HDD makers will no longer ship the current HDD's in Jan. Heard that 512 byte hard drive format is to be replaced by 4KB. I read somewhere that this can cause issues when we go for dual boot. Is this true? In that case, what steps can I take to ensure no problems occur?

I really want to use Vista only for running certain applications which do not run on linux. I have heard WINE can simulate a WIN environment. But is this really true? I mean, can it simulate WIN environments perfectly?

My next question is regarding dual HDD. I am planning to go for 2*500GB HDD instead of 1*1TB HDD... So will it be better if I dedicate one HDD to Vista and 1 HDD to Fedora? (I know it will be a waste of space since I will be using Fedora mainly and hardly aropund 10-20 GB for Vista. But I can access the Vista partitions)

Does fedora play all media formats? I know out of the box it might not.. But does having VLC help?

I dont see any firewall protection in Linux. I have heard of using IPTables, but then how efefctive are those? I will be doing many online transactions and I want my system to be secure. I know Linux is pretty secure. So should I harden the security with a hardware firewall?

I will be watching a lot of DVD movies, AVI movies and some HD movies as well. Does linux have issues rendering HD movies properly? I have read somewhere that fedora has issues while Win is good and Debian/CentOS (Not sure which one was mentioned) is even better. I had a pretty powerful config in teh past and yet I have seen that my Vista machine had trouble rendering a HD movie properly.

I will be buying AMD configuration along with an ATI graphic card (sometimes). Does Fedora have any driver issues?

Ubuntu :: Hal.dll Corrupt Or Missing?

Sep 21, 2010

So, onto my question. I kind of messed up my desktop computer trying to remove Ubuntu 8.10. I had installed 8.10 as a dual boot with Windows XP a few years back and now wanted to remove it mainly because of my mother, who can BARELY even turn a computer on. Plus, I can't connect to the internet anyway with Ubuntu (I need the Netzero dial up application in windows, since all I have right now is dial up).

Here's what I did. I downloaded the program "MBRFIX" so I could directly fix the mbr inside of Windows XP, since I don't have an XP recovery disc. I downloaded MBRFIX because I needed to get rid of GRUB. I fixed the mbr, and Windows XP directly booted. All was said and good, except Ubuntu still existed. I poked around on the internet and found something that said for me to use the Ubuntu Live CD and go to gpartition. It said to delete the Ubuntu partitions. So, I tried that, but it said something about unmounting something (I honestly don't remember what it said).

So, I continued following instructions. It said if you couldn't delete the partitions, to go to the terminal and type in "sudo swapoff" and then "sudo umount -a". So I did that. A bunch of stuff popped up in the terminal, mainly stuff that said "cannot unmount". I tried to delete the partitions once again, but that still failed. Finally, I just went back to Windows XP. I went to my computer, manage, and deleted the Ubuntu partitions from there. Finally, Ubuntu was gone! Of course, I wanted my 50GB space back on my XP, but I still had no clue how to go about putting that back. ........

Ubuntu :: Installing Windows XP - NTSRP Missing

Mar 26, 2010

I have run into another situation where I need windows to run a program, The software that I am trying to use is Taxact. I have used this software for many years "BUT" I guess it just doesn't like my ubuntu 9.04. I have a 500gb hard drive installed that is empty and I thought I could just load the windows program onto that drive but I am getting a message NTSRP missing? I think thats what it said. What do I need to do to load this program onto this hard drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: WinXP Dualboot, "A Disk Read Error Has Occurred"

Aug 24, 2010

Here's some drive info:

partition labels & uuid

Code:
Windows /dev/sdb3 (hd0,3) 5450F91950F90312
/ /dev/sdb1 (hd0,1) 72c730c7-1aa5-46cb-8957-d309de430502
/boot /dev/sdc1 (hd1,1) 3fe937cb-aa77-4516-a911-3da514d21aae

There's other partitions, but I don't think they're referenced in any of the boot files and my grub.cfg menu entries:

Code:
Ubuntu:
menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-24-generic' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
recordfail

[Code].....

This problem originated when I moved XP from sdc to sdb using clonezilla. I installed Ubuntu after that, however, and I have since run update-grub, so the menu entries should reflect that move. Also, all drives are set to IDE in BIOS.

However, I can mount the windows partition in Ubuntu and read all the files fine.

Ubuntu :: Installing Windows - BSOD Error (0x0000007B) And Error With Setupdd.sys (error Code 4)

Jun 27, 2011

If I have a hard-disk with Ubuntu fully installed on it and I want to - all of a sudden - use Windows XP, is it mandatory that I firstly format the hard-disk first? So far, I have used two versions of Windows XP; one of them is from a few years before the other. Both copies of Windows XP when in start-up from booting from CD are causing errors. One of them is a BSOD error (0x0000007B) and the next Windows CD is stopping and giving me an error with setupdd.sys (error code 4). Is it required that the hard-disk is formatted before you even put a Windows boot CD in?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Corrupt /share - All Files Missing And Can't Lstat?

Discovered today that my /share directory is missing or corrupt. All fields (permissions, ownership, inode, etc) read '?'. Will a fsck from single user mode fix this? Tried rebooting several times, etc. All other system functions see to be ok, except all the files in /usr/share are missing, the directory 'share' blinks red and obviously dovecot will not run - which is keeping our IMAP from running.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 / Vista Dual Boot - Missing Or Corrupt Info On Restart

Jun 19, 2010

This morning I attempted to 'clean' up some old files/programs from my dual mounted (Vista/10.04) laptop. All seemed ok until I tried to run Vista and I got the following:
/windows/system32/winload.exe
status Oxc000000F
missing or corrupt

I then tried to reboot into Ubuntu but it keeps trying to load windows. It looks like I have somehow lost my grub, so now I have lost Ubuntu and Vista. I tried my Vista Start Up disk and at the command prompt I entered:
Bootrec.ext /fixboot
Bootrec.exe /fixmbr
on restart it went back to the 'missing or corrupt' information. Is there some way I get get back to normal?

Fedora Installation :: Upgraded To FC10 - Video - Fatal Server Error: No Screens Found Gotta Go, X Session Getting Corrupt

Jun 13, 2009

I must say, the RPMfusion version of the Nvdia driver package work better with FC10 than they did under FC9 for me, which is to say: they work at all. Still get corrupted output after a few hours of work, but I imagine that's just the underlying weakness of the Nvidia driver bubbling up. Either way, now I have other problems:

First off, the Intel driver for my onboard video setup has stopped working entirely. The attempt to bring up X on the Intel setup gets me to the KDE login screen and locks the machine up hard (poweroff required). A look at the xorg.0.log shows that the server seems to be stuck in a loop trying to determine the valid video properties for the session.

Here's my xorg.conf, BTW. I have it setup to perform different configurations depending on which DefaultServerLayout line gets uncommented (lines 4 - 6). If anybody has a better way of doing this, I'm all ears. While we're on my xorg.conf, pleas view lines 64-67 and/or 75-77. This is my quickie way of changing drivers (again, all ears) which brings us to the next problem, neither the nv or nouveau drivers work with my system. Interestingly enough, both drivers tend to fail in the same relative spot in the process, I think. Please refer to line 207 of this xorg.0.log with the nv driver or line 140 of this xorg.0.log from the nouveau setup. Either way, both sessions die with the same message: (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration. Fatal server error: no screens found Gotta go, x session getting corrupt,,,

Ubuntu :: Dualboot With Windows 7 - No Errors - Just Blank Screen

Jan 4, 2010

I tried using Wubi to install Ubuntu 9.10. It worked fine in the Windows part of it. After the restart, I got the ubuntu option. Selected it. Something about pressing ESC for more booting option came. Then two lines of something, and then a BLANK screen for the next hour. I hard rebooted then. Selected Ubuntu again, and pressed ESC and booted into Verbose mode. Still the blank screen ALWAYS comes. No errors. Just the blank screen. What am I supposed to do? I tried reinstalling through Wubi, but the BLANK SCREEN ALWAYS COMES. I am trying an online tutorial for dual booting Windows 7 along with Ubuntu, but the guy in the tutorial says just boot live. What is that? Like just setup your BIOS and put the cd in? I am gonna try it in sometime, after my cd is burned, but still, better if I get a reply before that.

Okay, I tried with the cd, selected the option of trying Ubuntu without installing, but again the BLANK SCREEN loves me, so it won't leave. Do you think I've got a corrupt copy of Ubuntu. It is the torrent, that is linked on their official website. Should I like redownload it and try? I really want to try out Ubuntu.

With the cd I also tried checking the cd for errors option on the screen, and that too showed no errors. I want my windows installation to stay but I want to try Ubuntu along too. Still I tried installing Ubuntu, without trying to let Windows stay or something, but still, obviously the BLANK SCREEN.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 No More Internet After Dualboot Windows Install
