Ubuntu :: Usb Creator Broke Grub

Apr 24, 2010

This was a bizarre problem with my systems bios confusing my usb wireless adapter and hard drive with one another! The solution was to unplug the adapter and reboot. I have been running a dual boot system with xp pro on one hard drive and Ubuntu 9.10 on a second hard drive, both are sata drives. I have been using this system for a few months and have been happy with it. A few days ago I decided to try to put Ubuntu 9.10 on a bootable usb, I followed the directions from help, but when I restarted my computer I could not boot from the usb device or boot from grub2. I read the grub2 documentation and tried all 3 methods of reinstalling grub from the live cd with no success. I then decided to install Lucid beta1 to a small partition on the second hard drive, when I rebooted I had grub 1.98 which recognized all three operating systems. This worked for a couple of days then again I got the error saying that the disk does not exist. I tried reinstalling grub using different methods, I even tried to use the fixmbr command on the xp disk, still no luck, now all I can do is use the live cd.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Broke After Wubi Upgrade / Sort It?

Aug 18, 2010

I beleive I had version 9.x installed. I upgraded once and everything was fine. I went the upgrade manager again and it found some more upgrades. The upgrade messed with grub. It then told me there were no new upgrades. Then I rebooted and it says

Try (hd0,0): NTFS5

Then the screen clears and there is some text I can't read and then it says command not found. Then it reboots.

Is there a way to fix this?
If not is there a way to recover the files from the disk image file.

General :: Recent Ubuntu Update Broke The GRUB Loader?

Sep 21, 2010

install Ubuntu inside Windows in the first place, thinking that would be the easiest way to get him into Ubuntu. Now, I can't figure out how to repair his grub loader without killing his Windows XP installation.

I'm a Windows guy (have to be, I'm a gamer), so my knowledge of Ubuntu is limited to whatever I can do in the GUI. The command line is beyond me at the moment ('cause it ain't DOS). More so because I have an identical installation to his system (I built both), and I'm wondering if this is about to happen to me too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Upgrade To 2.6.32-23-generic Broke My LVM - RAID And GRUB

Jul 4, 2010

I recently updated the kernel to the newest version(2.6.32-23-generic) using the update manager and now I am unable to boot in to my Lucid installation.

My setup is LVM on top of a RAID 0 array. My computer had been running in this configuration since Lucid was released.

The Error Code I get on Boot is to the effect of: /dev/mapper/ubuntu-os is not available.. and then I get kicked in to Busy Box.

Once in Busy Box if I try to use mdadm to mount the RAID array I get this error:

If I boot in to the live CD I can mount all of the partitions and LVM volumes, so it does not appear to be a failed drive or volume.

I have looked in the mdadm.conf, lvm config and grub config files and searched the "Google" for an answer with no-avail...

Ultimately I would like to find a solution which doesn't involve a re-installation.

Ubuntu :: USB Startup Disk Creator?

Apr 28, 2010

This utility doesn't work it won't format and won't boot the one time I got it working. Now it has broken my usb flash drive as gparted won't format it to anything . I tried the alternate unetbootin program and now it won't see the flash drive because the startup program trashed it. I still think the external usb devices is the most frustrating part of ubuntu and needs serious fixing. My new netbook install won't see any of my external drives.

Ubuntu :: QT Creator Cannot Find C++ Library

Jul 28, 2010

I installed Qt SDK for Linux/X11 on my Lucid. But when I try to write a simple program, Qt Creator cannot recognize the c++ headers.

Exact message when I used #include <iostream> : "iostream:No such file or directory".

Seems it cannot find the C++ standard library headers. Also gives a similar error when I try to use the std namespace.

How can I resolve this? From where and how can I give the C++ headers to the Qt Creator.

Ubuntu :: Startup Disk Creator Disaster

Mar 14, 2010

I was attempting to create a bootable usb drive for a friend with Startup Disk Creator. I was certain I had selected the correct drive but apparently I had not, because when I clicked "format" it began to format sdb instead of sdc. Unfortunately, sdb was my external hard drive. In a panic i force quit the format window, as i couldn't see any other option.

Now, when i access my external hard drive all I see is 4 files with jibberish titles full of random symbols. When I right click the external drive it still says its ~70% full of data, so i guess everything is still there.. whether or not it is salvageable is the question. Is there anything to be done or is it beyond repair?

Ubuntu :: CD / DVD Creator Non-successful With Burning Discs

Jun 12, 2010

I know, as of 2008, no support, but I'm wanting LTS so I'm trying to get Ubuntu 10. I'm trying to use 7.04,s CD/DVD creator to burn the Iso to a CD. I've tried desktop, and alternate, both by bittorrent, and every time I attempt to burn to a disc, it takes 10 minutes with useless spinning, saying "Preparing to write disc" and then it stops, locking the CD drive and having me to restart the system to get it running again. I've run on 2.0x, 1.0x, and 8.0x, all failing. I could really use help. I'm running a Dell Dimension 4500S, Pentium 4, 512MB ram, with a Cyberdrive CW058D CD-R/RW, SCSI, and IS a burner.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: CD / DVD Creator - No Proper Playback

Aug 11, 2010

I have a DVD that I am trying to burn to a disc. What I have is a VIDEO_TS folder. First I burned just that to the disc and it plays fine in my standard DVD player, but when I try to play it back using Ubuntu's Movie Player, it acts like it is going to play for a split second and then goes into stop mode. So, I tried burning the disc again, but this time I added and empty AUDIO_TS folder to it. Still plays fine on the DVD player, but in Movie Player it plays the menu. Only it doesn't show any image, just a '>' symbol that you can move with the mouse.

Ubuntu :: Is The 'startup Disk Creator' Proprietary

Oct 22, 2010

I'm trying to make a live USB of openSUSE from the 'startup disk creator' in Ubuntu. I wanna try it and see what it's like. As well as Fedora and gOS. As soon as the downloads for Fedora and gOS finish I'll try making the startup disk with 'startup disk creator' for each of those. But my problem is that I tried openSUSE and I select the .iso and it doesn't do anything.... I would imagine it should work with any old .iso, right? Or no? Can I only make an ubuntu startup disk with it?EDIT: Fedora doesn't work eitherEDIT again: Yea, requirements state that I can only make a USB startup disk of Ubuntu desktop edition

Ubuntu :: Startup Disk Creator Not Always Loading Iso's?

Nov 8, 2010

I have this problem across all my computers running Ubuntu (Lucid and Maverick installations). It works sometimes but it's hit and miss. Sometimes it will load up an iso no problem and i have a start up flash stick in no length of time. Other time's it will not load up an iso. I have tried formatting my flash drive these times but it doesn't make a difference as the drive is always recognised by the program yet i sometimes can't load an iso. When this happens i find that i generally have the same problem at the same time on my other Ubuntu installations. I find it weird. Anyway it's very frustrating when i come across another distro that i really want to try out and i cannot load the iso in the program.

Ubuntu :: Create Live USB With Persistence Without Usb-creator?

Jun 16, 2011

I've tried using usb-creator to create a persistent live USB of Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit, but the program is useless. There's a bug in the program that greys out the options to enable persistence (see here for bug info). I tried workaround #4 listed in that link, but that didn't work either. When I selected another .iso which I moved to the /tmp directory as stated, the "Make Startup Disk" option then became greyed out as well. It'll make a bootable live USB but I need persistence. Is there a good way to do this without using that program And I tried Unetbootin twice, and it wouldn't boot the live system at all. After seeing the Ubuntu splash screen it just stalled at a black screen forever.

Ubuntu :: USB Startup Disk Creator Doesn't Respond?

Jan 19, 2010

I have been an Ubuntu user for a few years now, and in the previous versions I have made numerous bootable USB devices, I always thought it was so useful, and I never have had any problems.I just installed version 9.10 the other day, and it seems to be working well, but the USB bootable disk creator is messed up big time.When i try to select an .iso image to add to the source disk image area, it is just unresponsive. And when i try to do something else, like format a USB device, it says i cannot format because the device cannot mounted. But i know its mounted because i can access the contents of the drive.Anyways this was a huge disappointment as I was showing a friend how useful the UBUNTU tools are, and it does this. Does anyone know anything about this bug?

Ubuntu :: USB Disk Creator Only Produces 'Boot Failure'

Feb 19, 2010

I have 2 USB drives. I have had 9.04 running on one for some time. I used Disk Creator in 9.04 to 'create' the drive. I use it as a reference to verify how things went in 9.04 if I hit a problem with 9.10.

However, after some months, when I tried this USB drive it produced this 'Boot Failure'. I followed up by checking the other USB drive which had Lubuntu installed via USB Disk Creator and it produced the same result ie 'Boot Failure'.

The Machine bios is set in the correct order.

I have tried to 're-do' things via 'Disk Creator' in 9.10 and 9.04 with the same result. It is not likely that both USB drives have failed at the same time.

Is Grub2 at fault in some way?

Ubuntu :: Using Disc Creator To Make Debian Live USB?

Jun 12, 2010

If I use Ubuntu's (10.4) Startup Disc Creator app to create Debian (Lenny) start up USB I just get (when using it on a separate machine) a black screen with the text "boot:" If I press Enter I get a pale blue screen but nothing else, some text if I press the TAB key, but it will do nothing. Is this because I use Ubuntu for a Debian OS or is there some other problem? I've noticed that the disc creator in Ubuntu only really likes Ubuntu related OSs. But since it recognised it when I created it I would have thought it'd work!
