Ubuntu :: Dualboot Grub Not Working After HD Firmware Upgrade?

Mar 22, 2010

I have a dualboot system with Ubuntu and Windows 7 (grub bootloader). I updated the firmware in my HD, and now grub doesn't work. After POST, instead of getting the menu of OS options, I get "Non-system disk: press any key."After pressing a key, I get the Windows 7 loader, with only a Windows 7 OS option. Windows 7 boots fine, but I have no way to boot into Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dualboot: Freeze After Grub

Feb 8, 2010

I just tried a dual installation. Win7 sits on my internal HDD, Ubuntu has a partition on my external HDD. The external Hdd is set up to have ~900GB of NTFS file storage and ~100GB for / (ext4) and a seperate swap partition. I partitioned it that way from the livecd installer. I have to say that I'm basically fresh out of ideas. I can boot Ubuntu 9.10 64bit just fine from a Usb stick. Installation also worked fine, I had the installer install Grub on the external Hdd. I am quite sure that it actually *is* on the external hdd, since unplugging it as well as changing the boot order to internal hdd first results in a straight boot to Win7.

Anyways, booting from the external device, I get as far as the grub OS selection prompt. Windows 7s loader can be started without any problem from here. However, choosing Ubuntu (recovery or not) results in... nothing. The system plain simply freezes up (I gave it some time) and can only be reactivated by resetting it. So far, I tried manually editing the boot entry by pressing "e". I changed the root entry from 2,2 to 2,0 to 2,1 to 2,3 and 2,5. Afterwards I tried booting by pressing ctrl+x. The result always stays the same. No boot, frozen system. Pc: C2D E6750, Gf8800GT,4GB Ram. Pastebin of grub.cfg: [URL]

OpenSUSE Install :: Dualboot SUSE / XP - Unable To Loaded When Chosen In GRUB

Jun 7, 2010

I've setup a dualboot-system. SUSE 11.2 starts automatically and works well all the time.

But when I want to use XP (yeah, sometimes I do that...), in about 40% of all cases it won't be loaded when chosen in GRUB. Just a black screen without anything else.Then I need to restart and in the 2nd trial it works!

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Timeout Not Working After Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10?

Oct 17, 2010

Yesterday I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 (x86_64). The upgrade itself succeeded, but now after booting I have to press enter in the grub OS list. grub.cfg looks like this:

Code:

# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

[code]...

Why do I have to press enter to have grub boot the default entry? How can I get grub to start the default entry automatically, without showing the menu? BTW: entries in the list are default:

Code:

Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic (recovery mode)
Memory test (memtest86+)
Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB_DEFAULT=saved Not Working After 9.10 -> 10.04 Upgrade (grub 1.98)?

May 21, 2010

Is the "saved" option for grub2 not available after the new upgrade?I had grub2 setup to let me load either windows or ubuntu, whichever I last used, and it worked.After the last update to Ubuntu I cannot get this to work anymore. I can successfully change the default boot entry by entering a number, e.g. "GRUB_DEFAULT=3" but when I put in"GRUB_DEFAULT=saved" it always defaults to the first entry, the latest Ubuntu. I can also change the screenresolution for the grub menu on this computer, but on another computer I cannot change the screen resolution for grub or restore the 'saved' option (I have not tried to change the boot default by numbers on this other computer though). I am only editing /etc/default/grub and running update-grub, is there another script or file I should be changing as well since the update?

Slackware :: DSL Modem Firmware Is Not Loaded After Kernel Upgrade

May 24, 2010

I have a zyxel dsl (usb) moden, which needs a firmware portion to work, called cxacru-fw.bin.

I have been using this modem using with at least two different slackware distributions, even when the atm drivers were not included in the kernel.

Presently I am using slackware 13.0, with the vmlinuz-huge-smp-2.6.29.6-smp kernel.

I downlowded the 2.6.34 kernel, because I need it for a new webcam, compiled and installed it, and oops! the modem does not work anymore.

I am pretty sure I have configured the kernel correctly; dmesg tells me the modem is recognized by the kernel, as it is with the previous one, but the firmware is not loaded, because the DSL led remains off.

I attach the kernel configuration lines:

I have tried forcing the kernel to load the firmware, using but it didn't work either.

Ubuntu Networking :: Tata Photo Card No Longer Detected After Firmware Upgrade

May 14, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04. The Tata Photon+ card Huwai EC1260 was working flawlessly. However, I recently did a firmware upgrade on the card that was provided by Tata Indicom for it to work on Windows 7.

After that, the card is no longer detected as a mobile modem in Ubuntu. If I try to add a new connection, all options are disabled (whereas earlier Tata Photon card would appear automatically).

The product ID has changed. What change can I make to Ubuntu to enable it to detect the card again.

Software :: Unable To Upgrade Firmware Send Over Serial Port

Oct 5, 2010

I have a Linux based board which has one serial port (so, stdin == stdout == stderr == /dev/ttyS0). I want to send Firmware over a serial port using Y-Modem protocol. But, when I poll on given fd (after sending ASCII 'C') its got time out. I am using HyperTerminal which is connected to my board's serial port. So, neither the HyperTerminal (only when it has launched dialogue box to send firmware to the board using Y-Modem) able to read data send by the board nor board able to read data send by the HyperTerminal. But when I type on HyperTeminal then the board got the key-strokes (thats why I can atleast browse through the GUI).

The same serial port is being used to render (VT100 based) GUI. I have managed to disable printk(s) after user-mode is up & running.

Ubuntu :: Boot Options Whilst Working With Open Firmware

May 4, 2010

I am going to attempt to install Ubuntu Linux onto an 500GB USB external hard drive. I was wondering what my boot options where as i am installing on to a powermac G5 that uses open firmware. From the boot menu, i dont have the option to boot to USB(like i can from firewire, CD or Internal HD) though i have found this page;URl...this enables me to boot from usb and works fine with Mac Os X (as i had to do this to boot from a usb stick i installed the os on when doing a spot of data recovery) but i'm not sure if it would boot into linux cleanly. I'm also unsure as to wether in instalation i'd need to install yaboot or not, and if not wether this is actualy an option o n the install cd.

Any info on whether anybody had installed a similar system, had any experience installing onto open firmware for an external Usb hard drive booting system or just any general knowledge about linux on open firmware.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gotten EMU 0404 PCI W/ 1.0 Firmware Or 0004 Device ID Working?

May 26, 2010

This is a problem that has been stabbing at me for years now. I have a nice pro-m soundcard - the EMU 0404 - with the cursed "1102:0004" device ID. I am wondering if anyone has gotten the early version of the 0404 (0004 / firmware 1.0 version) of the card working with Linux? All the information I can find is a couple years out of date. Maybe everyone just gave up when the later versions of the cards started to work with ALSA, but I really can't afford to replace this thing.

Regardless, if anyone has gotten this to work please let me know. If I really just need to resign myself to throwing the card away / taking a $150 loss on a new one, I'd also like to know,

Ubuntu :: Windows Driver Firmware - Error "Wireless Connection (Firmware Missing)"

Jun 4, 2011

after installing Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04, I'm experiencing tons and tons of complications with the wireless Internet connection. I have solved most of them. Now I have only one thing left. When I hit the drop-down menu for wireless connections, it says "Wireless connection (Firmware missing)"

I have installed the driver for my wireless card but what is the firmware? I honestly don't know what it is although it's very basic. I have a Broadcom 43xx as my wireless card (specifically 4306). How do I get the firmware for it? Do I find it in Windows? Also I cannot get b43-fwcutter because I have absolutely to Internet connection on Ubuntu. To post this, I'm using Windows.

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Grub With Dm-crypt - Warning: "Attempting To Install GRUB To A Partition Instead Of The MBR"

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Update With Vista Dualboot?

May 3, 2010

Ubuntu and Vista dual boot with grub being the primary bootloader. So, I just updated 10.04 today and when a window appeared asking things something along the lines of where to install grub, I didn't know what to do. So after reading the help box say that if you're not sure (which I was not) to click all of them, I did just that. Now when I go to the vista option in grub all that appears is a blinking cursor followed by bleak disheartening nothing until restarting. I can boot into ubuntu just fine and can still mount the windows partition from inside of ubuntu, but cannot boot Vista.

I had read other threads that usually asked for the user to run "sudo fdisk -l", to which the results are:

Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

[Code].....

Also someone directed another user to /mnt to look for windows related files, which in my case are there.

Ubuntu :: Win 7 Unable To Hibernate Under Dualboot

May 8, 2010

I have recently installed OpenSuse with GRUB boot-loader on my Vaio FW series laptop. I had to uninstall it because it caused Windows 7 to be unable to hibernate. I installed other distros (Fedora 11 and others) and the same problem recurred. This lead me to the conclusion that the problem is with the boot-loader (as my research suggested)..It has been months now, and I have not found any proper solutions to this yet. Linking this to Ubuntu, I recently downloaded and burned Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, however, I am still reluctant to install it until I know a solution is available. Has anyone had Linux-Windows 7 dualboot and also faced problems with hibernation/stand-by?

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 :: Partitioning For Dualboot With Windows7?

Mar 4, 2011

I've got a new box (i.e. I can blow away everything on it) with

CPU=Atom 330
nVidia GeForce 9400M
4 GB RAM
single drive, single partition=250 GB
Ubuntu 10.10 installed

The box will primarily be used for ubuntu, but my GF also wants to stream Netflix on it. (I have not been able to sell her on the Amazon Instant Video--yet, anyway.) Since Netflix doesn't run on Linux, I need to install a Windows or OSX. I have media for w7 and wXP. I'm planning to install w7 on it, just because that's newer. Is there a reason to install wXP instead for this usecase?

Given w7, I can choose to dualboot or virtualize. I'm told the Atom doesn't virtualize well, so I'm planning to dualboot. I'm told that, when dualbooting linux and windows, one wants to partition first, then install windows, then install linux, so I'm planning to do that.

how to partition for this? My plan is currently to make 5 partitions: 2 primary partitions (one for each OS) and 1 extended partition (to hold linux swap and the homes for w7 and ubuntu)

Code:

primary partitions:
system (c:) for w7 = 20 GB
root for ubuntu = 20 GB
extended partition:
