Debian :: Hosting Server - Operating System Not Found Error

Feb 19, 2015

I will have a hosting server installed with debian 7.5 and has the following error: "operating system not found".

I've done everything I could. Reinstall grub and I let it install fine and no errors, but does not booting, among the iso "boot-repair-disk-32bit.iso" and repair, all good, but not booting.

The system has a Raid 5 disks with one volume and two partitions, including a livecd ubuntu, and I see perfectly partitions have no problems, checked. I go with the "Super Grub Disk" (iso) and let me enter the system out there, but they do not enter the iso, not start me. All isos the'm putting on a flash memory to boot.

Debian Installation :: "GRUB Read Error Operating System Not Found" In Old Hardware

Apr 1, 2011

I am trying to install debian 6.0.1a in an old COMPAQ 1255 (amd-k6, 160 MB ram, 4.3 Gbyte AT33.33 MB/s Cyl 6568 Heads 6 bytes per sector 512 HardDisk). I am using the netinstall CD_ROM , I just want the base system (the last option in the list you are presented) I got installed debian 5.0.8 , base package plus fluxbox plus a light browser plus a light pdfviewer, and I got really surprised what an useful system I got from such and old hardware.

With 6.0.1a everything goes well during the install process, the net is recognized, also the disk, formatting an partitions are created, apt-get configured, repositories contacted, etc. I only select base system (may be I am confused with the name, it is the last option in the list), and I select the install using the whole hard disk (i also tryed the install using a separated home partition but I had the same problem). I am installing the system in spanish, using latinamerican keyboard layout.

the installer then asks to take away the CD-ROM, I do, I reboot and then I got "GRUB Read Error Operating System not found". Just before the message, the machine search the floppy. If I press a key, I got the same behaviour, noise in the floppy, error message.

I can boot the CD_ROM in rescue mode, and I can select /dev/hda1 and get a console. i can do ls and cd and navigate the tree. It looks like everything is there, the /etc, the /home, all of the directories. if I do fdisk /dev/hda i got a warning because dos compatible mode is deprecated with option p of fdisk i got:

15 heads, 63 sectors/track 8944 cylinders. (different of the specifications?)
device boot Id system
/dev/hda1 * 83 Linux

[code].....

i can do less grub.cfg, and I got lot of information. I think this part could be relevant to the problem

insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install 10.04 32 Bit - An Error With Initfrm Saying That No Operating System Can Be Found?

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 (32 bit)on my laptop (where currently is installed the amd64 version of Ubuntu 10.04 that I've decided to remove because of some small issues).I've tried using the installation CD (the same I've used to install it on my desktop, so I know that is a working copy),but at boot, although I select to boot from CD, the Live version doesn't start and Ubuntu 64 is run as usual.I've tried to create a startup diskon a usb pen,there the live version seems to start but then Busybox 1.3 is loaded and there is an error with initfrm saying that no operating system can be found.I've been told to download the alternate edition, but I'm still downloading it,

Debian Installation :: USB Install 'Operating System Not Found'

Jun 7, 2011

I've decided to move to Debian because I have noticed Ubuntu releases getting progressively more unstable.I am following the official Debian installation guide. Just did this with the Debian 6.0 Net install .iso: 4.3.1. Preparing a USB stick using a hybrid CD or DVD image. Debian CD and DVD images can now be written directly a USB stick, which is a very easy way to make a bootable USB stick. Simply choose a CD or DVD image that will fit on your USB stick. See Section 4.1,Official Debian GNU/Linux CD-ROM SetsŁ to get a CD or DVD image.

Alternatively, for very small USB sticks, only a few megabytes in size, you can download the mini.iso image from the netboot directory (at the location mentioned in Section 4.2.1,Where to Find Installation ImageŁ).The CD or DVD image you choose should be written directly to the USB stick, overwriting its current contents.

Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Aspire 5050 Operating System Not Found Error?

Jan 7, 2010

I just purchased an Acer Aspire 5050, and was trying to install Ubuntu on it for my mother. (No, I am not forcing it on her, she actually asked for it.) I burned a CD and put it in the drive, and it said Operating System not found. So I went into the BIOS and told it to boot nothing but the optical drive. Same error. I burned another disk with the same computer, and then another computer. Same error. (Hereafter referred to as "nothing")

So I went and purchased a 4GB flash drive from micro center. Converted my iso to img and DDed from my Mac, then set the BIOS to boot it. The BIOS recognizes the disk, but won't boot from it, giving the same error. So I thought: Fine, I guess I can't get _nix to boot, how about Windows 7? Put the disk in that I used to install on my laptop, genuine Windows 7 disk, nothing. I tried the Vista disk that came with the computer, also nothing.

Any ideas on how to install ANY operating system on this machine? I get absolutely no POST errors. I turned off Quiet Boot and looked, no errors there either. I would be fine installing any _nix based, it doesn't have to be an easy install. I can provide more information as needed, not a problem. I can't think of any more useful information at the moment.

Ubuntu :: No Operating System Found?

Sep 2, 2010

I got a new laptop today and the first thing I did was to install Ubuntu as a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything seemed to work the first time I loaded Ubuntu after installation, and Windows also seemed to work. Then, Windows Maintenance said there was possible disk corruption, so I restarted the computer and now I get this error when trying to load. After reading around about similar problems I think it might be a problem with the grub bootloader. It is 64-bit if that makes a difference.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 - Operating System Not Found

Apr 2, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on an old IBM T21 laptop. It starts very happily, and I am able to partition the disk & copy the files to the HDD. However, when it loads the desktop there is an icon for the CD drive (and install disk). Everything appears to be fine, but I don't see any confirmation of the installation being completed. The CD drive does not open when the button is pressed. When I restart the laptop, I get the message 'operating system not found'. Starting the machine using the CD works fine. The disk shows that the partitions have been created, and I am told that Ubuntu 9.10 is installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Operating System Not Found?

Jun 2, 2010

I formatted my 2nd hard drive(IDE) inside of windows. So I had a clean 80 GIG HDD. I downloaded the wubi installer and allowed it to have 30 GIGs of the newly formatted hard drive. I restarted it and it just used my 250GIG SATA drive. I then restarted and pressed esc. to make it use the 80 GIG and it said operating system not found. I then deleted it and tried again. Same result. I then reformatted it marked it as active and installed Ubuntu again and it did boot the 80 but it said the NTLDR is missing.

CentOS 5 :: New Installation - No Operating System Found?

Jan 12, 2010

I'm new at Centos, although I am familiar with Redhat.I have a laptop that has Windows XP installed on it, and I want this to run Centos 5.3 instead.I read some tutorials online, where I found the download "CentOS-5.3-i386-LiveCD". I burned this to a DVD-RW. When I put the disk in my drive and look my my D: Drive it reads: DVD RW Drive (D:) CentOS-5.3-i386-LiveCD.>I am burning with Nero 7 Essentials.I place this in the laptop disk drive, bring up the BIOS, set it to boot from CD, and when I boot it up I get the message "No Operating System Found".I also tried this from another computer, Windows Vista Home Premium, and it skipped the priority boot (which I set to CD) and went right to the hard disk, booting up to Vista like normal.I hope I'm just doing something wrong.. When I go into the DVD, I first of all see a folder labeled "LiveOS" - Then inside -> -osmin - IMG File - 12.0 KB-squashfs - IMG File - 677 MB

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Unable To Boot XP - Operating System Not Found

Aug 30, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix (10.04) on my brother's Acer Aspire One (751h) netbook, set up to dual boot with XP Professional. The initial install was successful, with both OS's booting correctly. However, after a series of updates and module builds (this machine has the Poulsbo chipset, still somewhat of a mess), Grub2 is now unable to boot XP, displaying the error "Operating system not found."

To be clear, grub works properly (aside from not booting XP), so the MBR is intact, although I've rerun grub-install to be safe. Restoring the windows MBR (using testdisk) boots XP happily, but of course ignores the ubuntu installation. I also had testdisk rebuild the NTFS boot sector, to no change - grub still doesn't work, the windows MBR does. Using the grub console, I can "root (hd0,1)" and see files on the XP partition, but "chainloader +1; boot" again fails with the same error. The ubuntu install can likewise mount the NTFS partition with no problems.

Given the fact that switching the MBR fixes the issue, I'm suspecting a Grub2 configuration problem. However, the simplicity of "root (hd0,1); chainloader +1; boot" leaves me stumped as to what that could be. Also, the error text "Operating system not found" is suspiciously identical to my BIOS's error message when attempting to boot from a non-bootable medium (as I found out while attempting to make a bootable usb stick with my mac).

OpenSUSE Install :: Error No Operating System?

Sep 8, 2010

Several months ago I installed Suse on my box...setup a dual boot with Windows XP. By default it booted into Suse. The problem is that the company I work for, not a science company, is VERY windows-centric, so nearly everything I do is in windows. The IT people here periodically reboot the computers which creates a problem for me since I often work remotely and this results in my computer booting into Linux.

So, to fix the problem I went into Suse, opened Yast, and changed the default boot to windows, and restarted.Now it won't boot into anything and not even the boot menu comes up.I get the following message:Error No operating systemIntel(R) Boot Agent GE v1.3.22Copyright (C) 1997-2008, Intel CorporationCLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 1C C0 E2 61 31 GUID: CAB279BC 5BF7 11DE 8A18 0007E9BECBF3PXE-E53: No boot filename receivedPXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.Boot FailurePress any key to continueIf I push any key, the same error repeats. Really, I truly couldn't care less about the stuff I have on the Linux partition; however, the Windows partition has TONS of data and programs I've written that would be an enormous loss.

OpenSUSE Install :: Error Loading Operating System?

Apr 24, 2010

I'm trying to install 11.2 Gnome from the live cd on an HP n410c laptop. The install seems to go smoothly until I'm told I must reboot without the cd. I've tried three or four variations of the process and each time I see, "Error Loading Operating System."I've reloaded the live cd and examined /boot/grub/menu.lst. It appears to be correct. It seems like the initial GRub loader isn't found in the MBR.If I run grub-install, the graphical interface comes up then complains, "Because of partitioning, the boot loader cannot be installed properly."

Fedora Installation :: F10 + RAID 1 / Error Loading Operating System?

Jan 13, 2009

I have a fancy new Quad Core Xeon machine here that I'm trying to install F10 x64 on. The installation went fine. When it reboots the first time, though, I get the dreaded Error Loading OS.

So I dug up my bookmark of the awesome Grub HOWTO here and followed the steps to install Grub manually. Alas, I get the same result after installing it. Even tried doing a makeactive (hd0) just in case, but no luck.

I did more searching and searched for "raid install" but didn't find anything helpful. So here I am... hoping somebody has some insight.

OpenSUSE Install :: Error Loading Operating System On First Reboot?

Jun 29, 2011

Installed 11.4 on a machine with two SATA drives which had previously been running Windows 2003. I deleted the Windows partitions and created a new partition scheme: Swap, root and one additional partition on the first disk, one large partition on the second disk. Install runs fine but upon reboot I get "Error loading operating system". Booting off a Windows floppy and running FDisk shows that the root partition is marked as active.

General :: Centralized Location For Operating System Error Messages?

Jul 20, 2010

the thing that tends to draw out their frustrations the most are the error messages.

Things like "x.x not found, such and such can't continue" or "Unable to locate x.x", etc.

Well, of those people as I described above, a lot of them are fiercely independent people and would fix their own problems had they any idea what they were.

So, I had a thought that adding google or LQ.o search terms to the error messages, along with a link to the search feature, would be somewhat beneficial.

Perhaps with messages regarding missing files, then provide a link and message "To correct this issue, copy filename and submit it here -> url and download the package"

So I was wondering where I could find lots and lots of error message code.
