OpenSUSE Install :: Disk Read Error - Can't Boot Windows ?

Apr 8, 2011

I have multi-version Kernels on a Dual Boot WinXP / openSUSE 11,3 box. It's been a LONG time since I needed to boot to Win XP and now that I find that I can't get to it, I can not say for sure what I did to break it. Looking back, I suspect that the method I used for the recent removal of one of the Kernel versions may have been innappropiate. Rather than unchecking in versions/package groups I may have just removed the unwanted kernel in the package list. Not sure. I've tried dinking around with menu.lst and Yast Boot Loader to no success. I get errors depending on what I messed with. Didn't try to reinstall grub until I checked here for help with a fix.

Here's some info:

Hardware :: SMARTD Reported Disk Sector Read Error

Oct 27, 2010

2 months ago, I built a dedicated backup server using 4 2TB SATA drives for software RAID5 (6TB total). A few days ago, smartd sent out mail saying it found an unreadable sector on one of the drives. I ran selftest using smartctl and the error persisted. So far, neither software RAID nor ext4fs running on top of the RAID volume have reported errors.

MOST OPTIMISTIC: It is normal to have a few bad sectors among billions. Software RAID takes care of alternatives. Keep using the system until RAID spits a more serious warning in the future.

MOST PESSIMISTIC: It is a really bad sign to lead a disaster. No good disk drive should have bad sectors especially when it is only 2 months old. The error is simply not detected by software RAID and ext4. Replace the drive immediately and return the bad drive to the supplier.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Read In The 1/4 Second The Error Lasts On Screen Before The Grub Prompt

Jul 14, 2011

This morning I ran an upgrade which upgraded the kernel from 2.6.35-28 to 2.6.35-30 on my Maverick system. I then departed for a meeting and came back to discover that my system had rebooted itself and only booted into an initramfs prompt.

Rebooting again shows a very brief flashing message of "error: unknown filesystem" alongside a few other errors I cannot read in the 1/4 second the error lasts on screen before the grub prompt. Neither kernel boot nor recovery mode options take me anywhere except to the initramfs prompt. I have searched and found a few threads on similar issues, but they all involve different fixes and suggest causes (such as dual booting on an ntfs drive, which I do not do) such that I am unsure where to go from here.

Fedora Installation :: GRUB Error - Error - No Such Disk

Dec 22, 2009

I'm trying to install Fedora for the first time on my Desktop. Unfortunately, upon restart once the installation is complete I get the following error:


This is from Fedora 12 x86_64 DVD. I presume that this obviously has to do with my disk selection during partitioning, during which I deselcted the two drives that I didn't want to be part of the install and left the one that I did selected. I also selected "use entire disk". The drive had copies of both Ubuntu and Windows 7 on it, which I expect were wiped out during install.

I know that the details are sparse...but that's all I did. I'm happy to go back into the installer to retreive any necessary information that may be needed/to reinstall.

Software :: GRUB Read Error After Upgrade To Grub2?

Mar 19, 2010

I have a Debian Lenny box with two hard drives in it (no dual boot; /home and /var are on the second drive). This machine was working fine until earlier this week when I ran an upgrade and restarted it. I think during this upgrade Grub got upgraded to Grub2, and now when I try to reboot I just get this:


GRUB Read Error

Hitting Enter yields Operating System Not found. This is it, I can't get into the grub screen to enter the boot command or anything. I booted the machine into the rescue environment on the Install CD, and was able to mount all the file systems and chroot in. I tried reinstalling grub2, but this did not help. I ran fsck on my /boot file system, but it appears fine. The boot partition is also marked with a bootable flag in fdisk. I did try to downgrade back to grub1.5 which, while it didn't given an error did hang shortly after it loaded.

Fedora :: GRUB Error 18 - Couldn't Read Configuration File

Apr 5, 2010

I'm playing with Fedora 12 and can't get GRUB to work. To boot, I've been using GRUB4DOS. While that works fine, I'd like to figure out what's wrong with regular GRUB 0.97. After the initial installation, GRUB came up on reboot, but it was broken -- it couldn't read the config file apparently, and no commands would work correctly. So I attempted to reinstall grub via the grub prompt. No matter what I do, or which hard disk I install GRUB on, I get "Error 18". I tried using the "grub-install" command as well as the prompt, and that did the same thing.

My system here is an ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO mo/bo. I've got four hard drives. Two 1TB SATA drives and a couple of PATA drives (300 and 500GB) on a Si608 controller card. Using the BIOS "BBS" boot menu, I can boot NTLDR and BOOTMGR off active partitions on any of the drives (with proper Boot.ini modifications to handle the change in drive order). GRUB4DOS works as well, and will boot Fedora 12 correctly off any of them (with proper menu.lst ministrations). But GRUB 0.97 that comes with Fedora just refuses to do anything other than say "Error 18".

Server :: GRUB Read Error After Adding SATA Drives?

Apr 2, 2010

I installed debian 5.0.4 server on a PC that has both IDE and SATA controllers. I used an IDE HD to install the OS. The input device was a USB DVD unit. The IDE drive showed as /dev/hda and the 4 SATA HDs showed as /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, /dev/sda3 and /dev/sda4. After the OS was installed the reboot started which brought up an error: GRUB GRUB Read Error

I then disconnected the SATA HDs and rebooted successfully. So no PROBLEMS with just the IDE drive connected, grub works fine. If I reconnect the SATA HDs though grub fails with:

GRUB GRUB Read Error

The problem originated when the installation got to the GRUB implementation. Here the installer engine asked me If I wanted GRUB to be installed on the MBR, to which I said YES. The installer had listed the IDE drive (/dev/hda) before the SATA drives (/dev/sda, /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc, /dev/sdd). After the installation finished and the machine was restarted, BIOS looked at the SATA drives first could not find the grub stages and it displayed an "Read Error".

After realising what was happening I looked at the BIOS settings to see if the HD booting sequence could be altered. The BIOS did indeed list the 4 SATA drives first and the IDE HD last. BUT it would not let me alter the booting sequence. So I was stuck with what the BIOS doing. So I decided I take the IDE drive out and create a 20G partition on the first SATA to accommodate the OS. So now everything works OK.

Firstly, I'm ubuntu-naive so things may need to be explained painfully slowly. Secondly, I tried doing a search for similar problems but I had a hard time following the solutions so rather than just jump on another thread I figure i'd start a new one.I am trying to move on from XP and tried setting up 9.10. I did the LiveCD; followed the installtion prompts and installed, and restarted. Following restart I get the following;GRUB loading.error: no such diskgrub rescue>I've tried doing the boot info script lines but I keep getting "unknown command sudo" msgs.I can't get beyond this point.

Ubuntu :: Sporadic GRUB Error : Out Of Disk

Jun 21, 2010

I just replaced the HD in my computer with a larger one (1tb) and installed Ubuntu Lucid 64bit onto two partitions (100gb for / and the rest for /home). I rebooted and it loaded up fine. Did some stuff, had to restart (NVidia drivers) and it stopped at a GRUB rescue prompt, reporting the error "Error : Out of Disk". So I rebooted again and it worked no problem. But since then, every second bootup or so delivers this error, while other times it loads Ubuntu fine. I've tried running update-grub a few times and this always seems to work. But ultimately, the problem never goes away. I also had a look at this [URL] But it seems the advice given to change the 10_linux file must be only for an earlier version of GRUB2 as the file on my machine is very different.

EDIT: I've attached the output of a Boot Info Script that I got here: [URL]

Ubuntu :: Grub Out Of Disk Error On Boot

Sep 4, 2010

Edit: This is somewhat inaccurate, please see post #16 on page 2 for my actual situation

I'm more than a little confused by this. A little while back I had to reinstall my machine because I had a hard disk failure and I replaced my primary drive.Everything went perfectly smoothly, but then a couple of weeks after that when I rebooted, it dumped my into the grub rescue console


error: out of disk.
grub rescue>

So, I found a solution to the problem on these forums, rebooted perfectly fine, and thought everything was fine. Until the next time I rebooted, when it happened again. And now, every single time I reboot, I get the same issue.I have to do the following, each and every time I want to reboot - and i'm at a loss to explain why grub is borking itself every time.Boot off a live cd.Open a konsole window


sudo su -
mount /dev/sda6 /mnt
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev

Ubuntu :: Error: Out Of Disk - Grub Can't Be Found

Sep 5, 2010

what I think will be a long post, but I want to include as much information as possible to get some help. I post my question here because it is mostly a boot issue and not strictly a server issue, although that is what I am trying to install. I bought a used server, motherboard has all IDE connectors for HD and cd/dvd. The board is am Asus cuv4x-d. It is a rather old board, introduced to market around Sept. 2000. The two IDE hard drives that came with the mobo have presented the problem as what I will describe for the SATA problem. I wanted to use my SATA-Hard Drive as my storage. I bought an SATA-to-IDE adapter. I installed the hardware and booted from the Ubuntu Server cd. Everything went fine and the installation smooth. When the initial reboot started, this is where the error comes. I get an error that says, Error: out of disk. The next line shows a grub rescue prompt. It appears that Grub can't be found. The motherboard has a Primary and Secondary IDE connection. I have tried connecting the adapter to both.

Ubuntu Installation :: (initramfs) Prompt After Alternate CD 9.10 With RAID - Grub Loading: Biosdisk Read Error

Jan 13, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu on a nvidia board which, based on the forums I have perused, is a FAKERaid chipset. Originally I tried to install according to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto to no avail. I gave up and am resorting to breaking down my raid setup (thus losing my Windows XP installation) and using Linux's software raid (which seems to be the recommended method) with the Alternate CD install.

I went in to the bios and completely disabled my board's RAID function. I then followed the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/SoftwareRAID , except it popped up with a window advising me "one or more serial ATA RAID configurations have been found. Do you wish to activate these RAID devices?" which that page didn't mention. I believe I selected "Yes". Setting up the partitions I made (from beginning of disk to end of disk) a RAID1 200MB /boot partition, a RAID0 / partition (90GB?), free space not set up in RAID (approx 20GB for each SATA drive to later install Windows on [if that's even possible]) & then the SWAP partition 2GB at the end of one of the disks (is it OK that this one wasn't in RAID?).

The installation completed, as far as I can tell, without a hitch. Except also of note: my network card doesn't work in the installer (gives an error message about unable to configure dhcp) so i'm not connected to the internet. Then I restart and the following appears: grub loading: error: biosdisk read error. Followed by what appears to be the Ubuntu loading splash (just a small white shape in the middle of the screen), and then:

Debian :: Grub Error - No Such Disk ?

May 9, 2010

I installed Debian squeeze amd64 (using LVM with ext4 for /, /home, and ext2 for /boot). This is on a whole hdd on its own. Before I installed it, I have win7 on it. There is also another hdd with winxp. The dual boot loader is in the hdd. After I installed Debian, grub 1.98 was installed. After reboot, grub says "welcome", and after 10 seconds, it says "error: no such disk". It went on to display the menu with a choice of my debian and MS windows.

There does not seem to be any effect of this "error:no such disk". However, after I chose Debian to boot, gnome comes on, and I typed in the username and password. The screen goes blank for about 30 seconds before my desk top comes on.

I have 2 questions:

1. How do I fix my grub "error:no such disk" message?
2. Is there something wrong with a 30 seconds delay for the desktop to show after typing username and password, and if so, what can be done?

Ubuntu Installation :: Error: Out Of Disk. Grub Rescue>

Dec 11, 2010

Trying to do a new install of ubuntu 10.10 to my laptop. Installation and all works fine, but upon rebooting, after the bios screen i get:

error: out of disk.
grub rescue>
I tried using following some instructions i found after googling for the problem:
ls (displays the partitions and devices Grub can see)
set prefix=(hdX,Y)/boot/grub


but after the 5th step, i get another "error: out of disk" message. The odd thing is that I had an install of 10.10 on this laptop a month ago, and it worked fine. As a side note, I installed fedora 14 after this happened, which worked fine. Reinstalled ubuntu, and it was back to the same problem. I also tried installing with a kubuntu cd I had, to make sure it wasnt the install media, and had the same problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install Of 8.10 Over 9.10 Causes Grub 'no Such Disk' Error

Jan 27, 2010

I have a dual boot machine (Win XP + Ubuntu 9.10 on separate physical drives) which was working fine. I now want to replace the Ubuntu 9.10 with LinuxMCE which is based on Ubuntu 8.10. Using the LinuxMCE install disk, I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.10 over the top of Ubuntu 9.10 (repartitioning the whole drive). On reboot, I now get a Grub "no such disk" error. I have run the boot info script which produced the following RESULT.txt:

Boot Info Summary:

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

Aug 24, 2010

Here's some drive info:

partition labels & uuid

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:

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


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 Installation :: Dual-boot `GRUB Hard Disk Error'

May 9, 2011

My system has Windows XP Pro SP2 installed on /sda1 and originally a 10.04 on /sdb1-3, now upgraded to 11.04. The Ubuntu system works fine (teething troubles with nvidia drivers on upgrade but fixed now), and the Windows system shows up in the grub menu, but when it's selected, I just get `GRUB Hard Disk Error' and nothing else. Windows installed properly, and booted successfully until I installed Ubuntu in the first place. I can still access the files on that drive from within Ubuntu.

I've tried fixboot in the Win Recovery Console, which sounded like it did something, but didn't fix the problem. This problem isn't new to grub2, by the way - I just haven't needed Windows in a year.

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot - Windows - Grub Hard Disk Error ?

Oct 1, 2010

I have a dual boot System with Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix and Windows XP SP3 on an Asus eeePC 1000HE. I had some troubles with updating kernels etc. and I ended up with following problem:

After grub reinstall, I am able to boot Ubuntu, also I can mount the windows partition properly. Trying to boot into Windows, I get the error:


It's all on one hard drive which doesn't show any errors:


Partition table entries are not in disk order


Some partitions don't show a file system because they are luks-encrypted.

As I mentioned earlier, I am able to mount sda1. I think the problem is that the Partition Boot Sector is corrupted, even though I am not sure if the ntfs partition is damaged at all or if GRUB is the problem.

As I said I had problems with a kernel update and therefore had to reinstall GRUB. I think, but I am not sure, that I accidentally installed GRUB on sda1 (the windows partition) instead of on sda. After I installed GRUB on sda again, I was able to boot linux and fixed sda1 with testdisk. Before, sda1 showed as four partitions (sda1p1, ... , sda1p4). I was not able to mount sda1 till I fixed it with testdisk. testdisk says the Boot Sector of sda1 is OK, so does ntfsfix.

Finally, an extract from my /boot/grub/menu.lst:

Code: ...

The Windows XP entry is added by myself. I don't know much about grub, so there might be the error.

I tried to keep it as short as possible (this is only the end of the story), I hope I didn't forget anything important. Please ask if there is something not clear.

I am in Tanzania with this netbook, so it is not possible to boot Windows CD and fix the windows partition with it, also I don't have a very fast Internet connection.

Is there a way to fix this without a Windows CD? Maybe it is just a dumb mistake in the menu.lst?
