Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot To XP Of Maverick On Dual-boot System

Nov 10, 2010

When I first installed Ubuntu as a dual-boot (about 18 months ago), I had problems booting to XP, which were eventually solved for me in this thread, which set Windows to boot Ubuntu, rather than the other way round.

I've just had to do a fresh install of Maverick, following a major problem, and I'm back to being unable to boot XP. The error is different from before and I don't want to start guessing at what to do about it and screwing things up still further.

The GRUB menu lists Ubuntu first, then Windows XP. If I choose XP, it takes me to my previous boot menu, with Windows as the first option. However, selecting this gives me

Code:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
<Windows root>system32
toskml.exe

Please re-install a copy of the above file. Windows and Ubuntu are on separate hard drives. XP was fine until I re-installed Ubuntu.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Dual Boot Maverick?

Jan 26, 2011

I have one machine in my house which doesn't run Linux, and that is a new iMac (a few months old). It has 4GB DDR3 Ram, an intel core i3 chip @ 3.06GHz, and a ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics card.I want to dual boot Ubuntu (I have a disk with Maverick on it).But I have read the wiki and I dont really understand alot of it. Right at the beginning, it says:"This information will not work for iMac (11,1) users and recent versions of Ubuntu (e.g., Maverick). The presence of the bios-grub partition that the Ubuntu installer creates by default (e.g., sda3) causes a conflict that prevents syncing the GPT and MBR partition tables."Does this mean that I can't dual boot Maverick? What does it mean by 'iMac(11,1)'?

Ubuntu Installation :: Replacing Fedora On A Current Dual Boot?

Jun 30, 2011

Currently I have a dual boot Win 7 / Fedora 14 on my Dell Inspiron 1546. After being unable to upgrade to F15 I think it's time to try something different like Ubuntu 11.04. I'd like to format all the Linux partitions, install Ubuntu there and being able to boot to Win 7 from Grub (just like I currently do with Fedora). Can I just go ahead and install like usual, or is there anything else I should consider? Do you think Ubuntu will have a problem finding Win7?

Debian Configuration :: Dual Boot Ubuntu/Debian: Debian Has Disappeared?

Apr 5, 2011

I have just installed Ubuntu (/dev/sda7) and Debian (/dev/sda4), but since I have updated all informations on Ubuntu, then Debian did not appear anymore on the grub list. There is an wiki I have found, but I an not really sure about what to do.

Here are the boot informations:
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010

Boot Info Summary:

=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 488861020
of the same hard drive for core.img, core.img is at this location on
/dev/sda and looks on partition #3 for (,gpt3)/grub.

[Code]...

ps: on this file, it says that the /boot is installed on the MBR and /dev/sda3. I will remove the boot from MBR as I am now using /dev/sda3 instead. Sorry for my english

Debian :: Grub Boot Loader On A Dual Boot System?

Dec 16, 2010

This is the third time I try unsuccessfully to install Debian as a second OS on a hard drive. When it gets to the end of the installation process the installer asks whether I want to go ahead with the Grub Boot Loader, I choose yes. The end result is however that I can't boot that partition within the hard drive -- i.e., Debian. Can someone tell me what is going on? Should I not use the Grub Boot Loader when I have more than one operating system on a machine? Should I not install Grub on the Master Boot Record (MBR)?

Debian Installation :: Installed Dual Boot 6 RC2 / No Boot At All

Apr 17, 2011

Before the installation, I had triple boot of WinXP, Win 7, Ubuntu 10.10. As you can guess, the main boot-loader was grub. The second is Win 7 boot loader, and there it gives the option what to choose, load XP or Win 7.I made a decision to remove Ubuntu and install Debian(you know better than me why I did). So first, I searched a guide how to un-dual-boot. It told me to delete the two partition that Ubuntu use(swap and ext4) and write to MBR the win 7 boot-loader(using EasyBCD), so I delete them and use EeasyBCD. At this stage, I had 2 partitions: NTFS for XP and NTFS for Win 7, and the Win 7 boot-loader(and XP) worked pretty well.I install the latest testing of Debian(6 RC2) from DVD1 using this guide, except I choose to use the graphical installer, ext4(not ext3 as there), install the desktop environment, and choose to install grub(even know it didn't asked me). The swap partition I set is 3 GB because my RAM is 2 GB, even know that ubuntu set it in the past to 2 GB.The installation went pretty well, just when come to grub package, it says that there was an error with installing grub package(it didn't told me what), I had no choice, so I choose to skip over grub/lilo and finish with no boot manager. I was thinking to myself: "So I couldn't install grub, at least I have the Win 7 boot-loader(which contain XP loader), and maybe Win 7 boot-loader will recognize Debian too.". But I end up with no boot at all.It told me than when choose not to install boot-manager that I need to load /vmlinuz and give it the parameter root=/dev/sda4(my deb partition).I think that if I could install grub, I could load all my boots("sudo grub update" right?).How can I fix it?

Slackware :: Take Current Windows7 (x64) Setup And Make It Into A Dual-boot Setup With Slackware 13.0?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm trying to take my current windows7 (x64) setup and make it into a dual-boot setup with slackware 13.0 (x32) and am hitting a brickwall. I guess I would like to know if I can salvage the situation without formating my windows drive. I fully intend to, but I had hoped to not do it this month. I'd like to get dual boot going so I can master it and acquire all the files/drivers I'll want and then format and do it 100% right next time.

Currently I have windows setup on a 3x 500gb Raid0 onboard array which itself has been flawless. After I shrunk my current partition size to give me about 25gb of free space I proceeded to setup Linux, and I was unable to perform the cfdisk portion for partitioning the array for Linux.

I tried using cfdisk:
/dev/hdx (a1-a3,b1-b3)
/dev/sdx (a1-a3,b1-b3)

I even attempted to locate with: cat proc/partition and tried using cfdisk on every device it located. It always said it was either an unknown partition table and should I start at zero, or bad partition. I was of course too concerned over my windows setup (which has almost 1tb of stuff I have not backed up) to go any further into the unknown.

PS: I have used Slackware before, back at 8.1, 10, and even a very brief interlude at 12.0, this is my first attempt on this computer however with 13.0, it is currently running fine on my laptop and my PS3 (Laptop is even dual booting 7/Slack13. Albeit without raid)

Ubuntu :: Maverick (10.10) Dual Monitor- Desktop Bigger Than Screen?

Jan 20, 2011

Im running a wee Aspire One, 1024*600 with an external monitor 1024*768 (maverick desktop edition- 10.10) I have them set up independently, the external is to the right, and above my aspire. I have set this up in the monitors options. But it seems the desktop environment (although not the backgrounds) extend off to the right of my aspire (under the external) and to the left of my external- (above my aspire).

I know that it may be nit-picking, but it is a right pain when I 'loose' stuff on this phantom desktop space. For example- when i move my cursor into one of these spaces- and have to wiggle it about till it pops onto one of the screens. Also- i'd like my screensaver to pop up on both screens, and span them both- not just be repeated on both...

Debian :: How To Dual Boot With XP

Oct 25, 2010

I was thinking of buying Debian with the five DVDs of software from their co. Is this possible with Mint or Ubuntu or Fedora...? Does Debian have good security from data theft...? Password protection and encryption, I never needed it before now so much.

Can Debian dual boot with XP? Is WINE effective in Debian? I heard Debian has a lot of software, compared with say Slackware which it's users love however saying the software is upgraded better. Any comments? And Mint has all Debian and Ubuntu software available, sadly for me, I found it had a fault built in in Mint 9. I use a Pentium 4 dual core with 3Gb RAM and a NVIDIA graphics card built in with 512 Mb RAM of it's own.

Debian Installation :: Install XP Dual Boot On 7.8 Box

Mar 6, 2015

Is it possible to install Windows XP on a machine that already has Debian 7.8? I find lots of articles on installing Debian after but not before XP.

I would like to get a prompt at startup to select Windows XP or Debian 7.8 and then choose which one I want. The reason I want to do that is because I have Guitar Pro on XP and cant find anything as good and also I want to watch Netflix and cant seem to be able to find a way to do that on Debian 7.8 except windows emulator which defeats the point of Debian anyway. Also my Epson V500 will not work on Debian 7.1 and I have tried everything, been to Epson, installed drivers etc..

Debian :: Dual Boot - Parallel Computing

Oct 11, 2015

I was asked to research if it is possible to install a Debian distribution of Linux to HP Z420 Workstations as second OS (dual boot) in our lab. The lab is normally used for Computer Aided Design (Windows 7). The plan is to have parallel computing possible with these workstations on Linux side.

The link for HP Z420 Specs suggests amd64 distrubition should be supported. Tell me If I'm wrong as I have always been interested in software side of things.

Looking for info regarding installation of Debian to HP Z420 workstations as well as using these computers for parallel computing with Debian.

Debian Configuration :: Virtualization Instead Of Dual Boot?

Sep 11, 2011

One of the things holding me back from building a new system with nothing but Linux is the vague possibility that that I might need to use some proprietary program that only works on Wind'ohs in the future. So far it has been easy to keep dual boot systems around, but a new system will be > 4 Gb of RAM of course, so I can't just install one of my copies of Win XP on it. But buying a new 64-bit version of Wind'ohs for ~$200 seems a waste.Is it now possible to run XP in a "virtual" machine under Debian? More importantly, is it possible to install XP completely from within the virtual machine so it never sees the > 4 Gb or RAM and freaks out? What sort of hardware is required to do something like this? I presume a CPU with certain special capabilities is essential, but wouldn't those special instructions (whatever they are) be pretty standard now? Would the virtual XP install need its own partition?

Debian Installation :: UEFI Dual Boot With Two Distributions?

May 27, 2015

I have Debian installed but I need to dual boot with distribution based on Ubuntu 14.04. This is my first UEFI dual boot install attempt. And I must do it right. I must not lose my Debian !

Code: Select allDisk /dev/sdb: 232,9 GiB, 250059350016 bytes, 488397168 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: gpt

[Code] ....

Ubuntu will go to /dev/sdb5 but I don`t no for sure what to do when installing Ubuntu. How to select during install existing UEFI partition(/dev/sdb1) so Debian and Ubuntu can use it. Can I select existing UEFI partition like I would do for /home or /swap ? Will this work ?

And what will happen with Grub if I select install grub ? I want to manage grub from Debian, it is my main OS. Can I skip Grub install and just update grub on my debian after ubuntu install ? Or I just install grub, then after completed Ubuntu install I install it again from Debian. Will this work ?

Is procedure of installing dual boot trivial like before or UEFI hide`s some unpleasant surprise.

Debian Installation :: Dual Boot GPT UEFI - 8.2 And Windows 10

Dec 15, 2015

I'll start off with stating my problem and summarize how I got to it.

I installed Windows 10 on an SSD. I installed Debian 8.2 after it. The SSD was/is a GPT disk. I installed both installations from a UEFI booted device (DVD for Windows, and USB drive with Live CD for Debian).

I tested it after each installation making sure I could boot via UEFI into Windows, then Debian, then Windows, to make sure nothing broke.

I rebooted the machine. Suddenly, no more UEFI. Nothing. I didn't change any BIOS/UEFI setup menu settings. Not even my USB drive with Live CD will boot through UEFI anymore. Even when nothing else is plugged into the system.

My situation is actually a bit more complicated than that, but I think that will suffice for now. I can still boot into the Live CD on the USB drive, just in Legacy mode only. I mounted the EFI partition on /mnt/boot after I mounted the file system for Debian on /mnt. It is identical, as far as I can tell, to as it was before when it was working.

My motherboard has CSM and Secure Boot, both have been set up how they need to be to boot UEFI into Debian. Tinkering with them further after things broke did not fix it. I tried all variations of options/settings.

The GRUB Reinstall guide says to be in EFI mode before starting it, so I can't do that.

My motherboard is an ASUS X99 Deluxe, and I've heard ASUS has special "features" (read: bugs) that come with their boards. Searching hasn't brought up any other people with this issue. I believe the firmware is updated to it's most current one.

I've tried dd-ing my backup of my old system, from before trying to migrate to a Dual Boot system, to the SSD (after backing up the dual boot setup with dd -> <name>.img via the Live CD USB). However, that won't boot either as it is a UEFI install as well.

The layout of my EFI partition is as such:
/boot/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi
/boot/EFI/Microsoft/<Microsoft-naming>.efi
/boot/EFI/debian/grubx64.efi

I've heard that the standards on how that's supposed to be set up isn't a standard. However, since it worked booting into the OS' the first time, I don't see how that could be the issue (a bad hierarchy layout leading to the UEFI not being able to see the OS installs).

I've seen that I can boot to an EFI shell (called Shell.efi, apparently) via an option in my UEFI BIOS setup menu on my motherboard. Is that an option here to somehow bypass this strange issue?

All I can think to try is burn it all and start over. But not knowing what caused it means I could just make it happen again. Plus, I can't boot into UEFI install media, so I can't install UEFI boot OS'. :/

Debian Installation :: Dual Boot Option Not Appearing?

Nov 26, 2010

Initially had windows xp in my system. Picked up on free partition (*it was not a primary partition*) and installed Debian from CD. The installation went fine. Towards end of installation the grub install ran detected windows xp presence and I continued with the install. End of install, prompted that the system would reboot.

However on reboot, I wasnt presented when boot option ( windows xp vs debian) but my windows xp directly got booted. How to get this boot option.

Debian Installation :: Installing Next To Windows (dual Boot)?

Dec 13, 2010

I've recently bought a new computer and installed Windows 7 on it, but left 100GB of space on a separate partition so I could put Debian next to it in dual boot. I have the new Intel i7 950 processor and I run Windows 7 Proffesional 64 bit, so I assumed I had to pick the ia64 debian image. However the CD I burned from the ia64 image didn't boot. (a black screen started and an underscore kept flashing, but nothing else happened)[URL]

I've managed to install i386 Debian on a older intel pentium 4 computer before and that worked fine. I believe I used another application to burn the CD then. This time I've burned the CD with the default Windows CD burn application. I can try burn more CD's but I don't have much left so I want to make sure this is the problem before attempting again. (the burned files on the ia64 CD look exactly the same as the files on the i386 CD, when browsing through the cd files in windows) "If your PC has a 64-bit AMD or Intel processor, you will most likely need the "amd64" images (though "i386" is also fine), the "ia64" images will not work."This seems a bit strange, they recommend me to use the amd64 image if you have a "64-bit AMD or intel processor". I dunno if this is a typo, but it seems weird to me that the AMD-64 Debian version would also work on my Intel machine

Debian :: Grub Corrupt After Dual Boot Install

Mar 22, 2015

Im currently not an linux expert so I turn to this forum after several attempts to fix my issue with grub.

I had a dualboot single HD with both win7 and win8.1 when I decided to install debian wheezy from usb.

I deleted the win7 partition and installed debian there. The partition scheme is separate /home

After reboot I automatically get into the "Grub rescue mode" and now I´m stuck.

I tried the commands:

set prefix=(hd0,msdosX)/boot/grub/
Insmod normal

I have msdos1, msdos3, msdos5 and msdos6 but nothing is listing anything from the grub rescue mode.

I get the "UNKNOWN FILE SYSTEM" error and cant get past that.

I also tried booting into rescue mode from usb iso install but nothing happens when choosing to repair GRUB.

The listed devices in rescue mode are:

/dev/sda1
/dev/sda2
/dev/sda3
/dev/sda5
/dev/sda6
debian uses sdb 1-2 and sdb1 is the only option to Reinstall GRUB on but it gives me "Unable to install GRUB in /dev/sdb1 This is a fatal error" message
/dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb2

Debian :: Dual Boot Lenny With XP - XP Stops Booting ?

Oct 5, 2010

Have a little experience with backtrack 4, which is a Ubuntu distro. I'm changing to Lenny due to hardware limitations on my laptop, an older Dell inspiron 7000.

Here's the specs :
400 MHZ,
120 G HDD parted as C: = 20G (has bad sectors, left blank) and D: = 20G Windows part
128 Mb low density RAM
ATI Rage Mobility ( not sure of video RAM, I think 8 Mb)

Now I liked running BT and liked the linux work, so when the BT install went south I started to look for another linux distro I can run, the BT tools I use are linux after all. Here's where I hit my stump. I decided to go with the Lenny distro, it already has some of the tools I need, but the first time I installed I had the HDD like this 20G, 20G, 20G,20G, 17.??G. I had windows installed on C: (of course, no problems, yet)

After I installed lenny to D: via an iso I downloaded, the Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.6 "Lenny" - Official i386 xfce+lxde-CD Binary-1, BTW first install was from booting from the disk. After reparting, format, etc. of the install, GRUB boot loader detects my D: Windows, great. Reboot to GRUB boot menu, select ddebian, and it loads...cool, until I realize I don't have synaptic, the tools, and apt isn't going to work unless I can load the linux driver from the cdrom...which I can't find.

Reboot...windows, internet for answers I'm thinkin. GRUB loads fine, select windows and get the following error message "Windows can't start because of hardware configuration problems. Could not read from selected boot disk, check boot path and hardware. Check configuration manual for disk configuration."

It took three days to get Windows reinstalled, and a LL format (zerowrite the drive) but during the process I discovered a possible hdw issue...bad sectors on the C: hdd. Solution: C: 20G = unused, D: = Windows xp. Worked great. No more windows issues, so try it again. This time I used the disks installer from windows. Everything started great, boot menuselected debian, install-graphic, but this time I let the part manager create a drive, 20G from the free space an it appropriately made it's swapfile...when lenny booted it was good, but still no synaptic, cd/rom, couldn't browse the computer.

Reboot to windows to get instructions from someone that really knows what's going on...no windows. exactly same message as before. I was able to boot into debian okay, but couldn't find any drives, utilities, wasn't very much, but I needed my windows and the internet to get lessons. I am familiar with the terminal console and KDE. Can use apt for updating, but prefer using the synaptic. Why does my windows keep disappearing? If I can solve the dual boot issue I can learn the system casually. Right now my config is: C: = 20G, nothing here, still haven't run a scandisk either...next on todo list. D: = 20G Windows install...what I'm using now. I'm not going to attempt to reinstall debian until I receive a efinate answer to the dissappearing config, or boot capacity. Oh, yeah, Did try a fdisk/mbr and fix. this didn't bring it back either.

Debian Hardware :: Surface Pro 3 - Running Dual Boot

Feb 16, 2015

This is a recollection of my experience using Microsoft Surface Pro 3. I am running Debian Jessie RC1, using the latest linux kernel (as of now, 3.19).

Assume that everything works, except:

- grub2 does not allow to select menu entries without TypeCover/USB Keyboard (Ubuntu had a popup software keyboard in the live CD)
- there is no "right button click" on the touchscreen. Most interfaces use a long press as a right click.
- the touchscreen is sometimes unresponsive, especially when plugging/unplugging the TypeCover;
- cameras don't work (although there is a fix)
- wireless card works 80% of the time only (but the newest marvell firmware from github solves the problem)
- secure boot does not work (need to disable that from the boot menu)
- touchpad gestures don't work (e.g. two fingers scrolling - this is particularly puzzling, as Ubuntu 14.10 live had the touchpad working (including two fingers scrolling) but not the TypeCover)
- touchpad and touchscreen scrolling do not work in certain applications (e.g. in Iceweasel one needs to install an add-on)
- pen works (even when the touchscreen is unresponsive), but only one of three buttons work (with xournal)

Debian :: Clock/Time Mismatch With Windows Dual-boot?

Jul 30, 2010

I had to boot into my Windows 7 install on my laptop for the first time in a few months and I noticed that the Windows clock was 4 hours ahead. Windows sync'd its time with the internet, then I booted back into Debian (Lenny) and my clock was now 4 hours behind. Both OS's are set to the same time zone (EDT). The minutes were correct in both systems. Could the fact that EDT is UTC-0400 be relevant?

Debian Installation :: Upgrading Windows On A Computer With Dual Boot

Aug 30, 2014

I recently installed Debian 7 on a dual boot with Windows Vista. Thus, when I boot the computer, I am prompted by a GRUB screen to select Windows Vista loader, Debian, and Debian (recovery mode). I would like to upgrade Windows Vista to Windows 7. Will this cause an issue with GRUB? Will a Windows 7 loader be added to the list or will a Windows 7 loader replace the Windows Vista loader? Will there have to be a setting change within Debian? Within Windows?

Debian Installation :: UEFI GRUB Broken - Dual Boot 7.7 And Win 8.1

Dec 23, 2014

My Toshiba Satellite C870-198 has Debian 7.7 installed in UEFI mode alongside Windows 8.1. The GRUB menu no longer displays, but the machine boots straight into Windows.

I can boot into Debian or Windows from rEFInd installed on a USB stick. The rEFInd menu has the following entries:

The Debian entry actually launches the GRUB menu which was installed with Debian.

Code: Select allBoot Microsoft EFI boot (Boot Repair backup) from Basic data partition.
Boot supposed Microsoft EFI boot (probably GRUB) from Basic data partition.
Boot EFIubuntugrubx64.efi from Basic data partition.
Boot EFIdebiangrubx64.efi from Basic data partition.
Boot bootootx64.efi from Basic data partition.
Boot vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-amd64 from boot.

In an attempt to fix GRUB I executed the commands in the 'Reinstalling grub-efi on your hard drive' section of: [URL] ....

Code: Select allmount /dev/sda1 /boot/efi
... surprisingly returned:
Code: Select all$LogFile version 2.0 is not supported.  (This driver supports version 1.1 only.)
$LogFile version 2.0 is not supported.  (This driver supports version 1.1 only.)
Did not find any restart pages in $LogFile and it was not empty.
The file system wasn't safely closed on Windows. Fixing.
Code: Select all[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "EFI boot on HDD" || echo "Legacy boot on HDD"

... returned "EFI boot on HDD".

[Code] ....

... Where is Debian?

FULL HISTORY ....
=============================

The laptop came with Windows 8 preinstalled. I switched off Secure Boot and installed Ubuntu for UEFI dual boot. I recall having to use Boot Repair to get the GRUB boot manager working properly for both systems.

Recently I decided to replace Ubuntu with Debian 7.7 and first cloned the entire hard drive to a USB drive (The Clone Drive). This drive successfully boots into Ubuntu in UEFI mode.

Following this I took the opportunity to update Windows to 8.1, which broke GRUB as expected, so that the machine would only boot straight into Windows.

I installed Debian from a live USB stick in the mistaken belief that it would be bootable in UEFI mode. It did boot OK in legacy mode.

I then burned the full Debian 'DVD' image to a USB stick, booted it in UEFI mode and reinstalled Debian. In UEFI mode GRUB allowed me to boot into both Debian and Windows.

At this point I tested The Clone Drive. It was still able to boot into Ubuntu as previously, but after powering down, unplugging The Clone Drive and rebooting, the GRUB menu failed to appear and the machine booted straight into Windows. This is its current state.

Debian Installation :: Dual-boot Grub Rescue Says No Such Device

Feb 13, 2015

I'm inexperienced in Debian. I have a dual-boot machine (64-bit, Debian 7.3, Windows 7, legacy boot) and encouter a problem at boot ever since I completed the installation of Debian 7.3 alongside the exising Windows 7. This machine has six hard drives: two are intended for ntfs storage of general data (raided together by RAID1); two more are intended for ext4 storage of general data (also raided together by RAID1); the fifth contains the Windows OS files and the sixth contains the Debian OS files. The problem is that I arrive to the grub_rescue each time at boot, seeing the message:
