Debian Installation :: Grub Installation To NVMe Device

Nov 4, 2015

I'm attempting to install Debian to an NVMe SSD (Samsung 950 Pro), however both Jessie and Stretch images fail to install grub.

Checking the syslog reveals the following error:
grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of /dev/nvme0n1p5

Further Information:
Fast-boot is disabled in the UEFI, and boot mode is set to UEFI only, no CSM. I do not see any option for 'Secure Boot' if it's relevant to the issue.Windows 10 has already been installed, which created several partitions. The ESP/EFI partition appears to be on nvme0n1p2I only created one partition for Debian - / on nvme0n1p5, no separate partitions for /boot, /home etc.

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:

GRUB loading.
Welcome to GRUB!

error: no such device: e081517b-3399-4067-9294-8f0686f753ca.
Entering rescue mode...

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Rescue Mode - Error: Cannot Find A Device For /boot/grub (is /dev Mounted?)

I updated yesterday and now when I start my laptop it goes in to grub rescue mode. I have booted from a 'live cd' and thought I could repair grub from there. In gparted however the partition with ubuntu (sda1) is seen as unknown file system, in terminal when I list the partition table it shows up as FAT16 type. When I try a grub-install it gives this error message:

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub:Error:No Such Device?

Jan 29, 2010

I'm using Kubuntu 9.10 with Ubuntu-desktop installed.I've been using kubuntu for sometime now but i dont know much technical things about it. I have two hard discs (160GB SATA and 80GB PATA).I have just installed Windows XP Professional and then reinstalled grub2 from a live CD. Both OS are on 80GB PATA drive.The Grub menu at boot time has "Windows XP Professional" entry in it. The problem is thatwhen i select that entry, i get an error saying:Quote:Grub:Error:No such device - "a string of letters and numbers"Press any key to continue...When i press any key, it goes back to the grub menu. Kubuntu and Ubuntu work fine.When i go to bios and change my hard disc boot order, grub is bypassed and Windows boots and works good. I dont know much technical things but i think maybe its the problem with Windows entry in grub. (something to do with lines map(hd0,hd1) and map(hd1,hd0) (But i'm nt sure. I just said wat i thought it might be)

Ubuntu Installation :: Updated From 9.10 - Grub Rescue (No Such Device)

Sep 23, 2010

Here is a brief history of my problem:

-Ran Windows XP Media Center for most of the life of this HP Pavilion notebook with 2 hard drives, C: and D:, no partitions except the default HP recovery partition

-Yesterday, installed Ubuntu 9.10 through Wubi on D: from an ISO (because the CD drive doesn't work). I assigned it 30gb on D:, which I assume created a 30gb FAT32 partition on this secondary drive.

-Dual booted successfully from Grub between XP and Ubuntu, so I thought, "Mission accomplished" and started making friends with GNOME. Got a pretty good score in Tetris.

-Was asked if I would like to update to the latest Ubuntu (10.04 I think?) which struck me as a good idea. Everything went smoothly until it asked me to reboot.

-Reboot brought me to a command-line that says "grub rescue>" and above it says "error: no such device: e76e00f3-........" (there's more, I can write it out if that helps)

-Rebooted several more times (cause that usually fixes things) but just got back to "error: no such device: ..." and "grub rescue>"

And that's where I am now. I have almost no experience with how Linux (UNIX?) works differently than Windows or how to use the command line. I know that the hard drives are (hd0), (hd1) instead of C: and D: and that everything important seems to start with "sudo" and that's about it. I was going to ease myself into the whole thing gradually, picking up little bits as I go along. But now I'm just stuck in command line limbo and none of my usual troubleshooting strategies apply here, not even yelling rude things about the computer's manufacturer.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Error After Upgrade To 10.10 - No Such Device

Nov 17, 2010

yesterday i upgraded Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10. During installation i also upgraded grub to version 2. It said that there were two options that i could choose to boot and i choose both. Installation finished with out a hitch. When i attempted restart my laptop i got this message:

error: no such device: 12631218-8ac6-4505-b4cb-a66a1de1814f
grub rescue>

I tried the command help and received a message saying that the help command was not recognized. So i then gave Google a bit of a work out and have tried reinstalling grub and manually coping the grub files all to no avail. The problem i believe stems from how i have Ubuntu installed. I have Ubuntu installed like an application on windows 7 on a separate partition on my hard drive. Looking back on it i'm not to sure why i choose that route, but that is how it is installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Error: No Such Device, Grub Rescue

Mar 29, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu on a separate hard drive alongside Vista, and after restarting, my computer booted to a screen that said, "error: no such device: xxxxx-xxxx-xxxxx-xxxx (I don't remember exact number, if I need them I'll go back and write em down) grub rescue>"

After a bit of searching I found this thread: [URL].. I tried the first part twice which didn't change anything, so I tried the last part which was too fix the vista bootloader, which worked perfectly, and now I can get into at least one operating system. Would anyone please help me get a bootloader working so I can choose between Ubuntu and Vista? Also, is it worth mentioning that right before the computer shut down after installation, I had a huge list of I/O errors?

EDIT: After further searching I read that the I/O errors were commonly because of a faulty cd or it was spinning too fast. I think my problem with that was that it was spinning too fast, it was incredible loud and there was a huge amount of wind coming out of my computer XD. iirc I have to go to the BIOS to change disc speed?

EDIT2: I think all my problems stem from a faulty CD. I remember setting the burning speed too the highest setting when I burnt the live CD, I guess I thought faster was better.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing With Raid 0 - Grub: No Such Device

Jun 29, 2011

I have a raid 0 setup with 2 x 1TB drives. I have an ASUS P8P67 LE motherboard and am using Interl RST for the Raid setup. I'm utterly ignorant of raid and therefore forgive any mistakes... I already had windows 7 installed and was attempting to dual boot ubuntu.

I installed Ubuntu from CD. The raid was picked up properly as only one drive by ubuntu. So it picked up the windows MBR and the main windows partition. I resized the main partition and used the "install ubuntu and windows 7 side by side" option. Installation went fine but once I restarted the PC I was welcomed by a grub rescue screen with the message: "error: no such device e196.....". Edit: I used the Windows 7 disc to repair the windows bootloader so I can now boot into Windows 7.

Before doing so I used gparted on the live cd to check the partitions on the drives. The only ones present were the MBR and windows one. So ubuntu seemingly didn't install... Although GRUB did... I was advised by someone on the ubuntu IRC chat to avoid trying to reinstall ubuntu at that point just in case there was an error in the partitioning process. I've since checked the state of the partitions from within windows and there's the MBR partiton, the windows partiton AND the partition that I created for ubuntu... 965MB of the partition that I created is listed as used space as well...

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Error 'no Such Device' When Trying To Start Windows

I am having trouble getting a dual boot setup on Ubuntu remix on a netbook. The install went fine, but then windows would not book. I had a windows error. So I reinstalled windows, and rebuilt grub. Now when I try to launch windows from the grub menu it says "error: no such device: 0a82ff1982ff0849". How do I go about fixing that? I can boot to Ubuntu fine now.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub And Root Device Missing - 64bit System

Sep 1, 2011

The problem after couple installations (10.10 --> 10.04 --> 10.10 --> 10.04-3) is that system goes to "busybox" after complaining about missing root device. I already have come to conclusion that this problem could be solved by telling the system that the root device is at sda1. However, I'm not able to start grub (by pressing "ESC") at boot before problems start. I'm able to start live-cd and I tried to install "over" the old one (same partitions without format, same username). No luck.

And in the busybox /proc/modules is empty for example. And the grub has worked with previous installations.

Ubuntu Installation :: Locked Out Of Windows Partition With Grub - Error: No Such Device: 2e3857fb3857c08f

Apr 5, 2011

I have two partitions on my HDD. A Windows XP (hd0,2) and an Ubuntu 9.10 (hd0,1).I have been using the Windows mainly and ran a program that changes the HDD's serial number. Now when I boot up and Grub loads, I try to access the Windows partition and get the following error:

Error: No Such Device: 2e3857fb3857c08f

I am still able to boot the Ubuntu partition but can not seem to get grub to point to the Windows partition any more. This is very frustrating as I really need to get back into that partition soon.

Debian Installation :: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 - Make Sure During Installation That GRUB Gets Configured To Stay In Character Mode Only?

Mar 2, 2011

I am trying to get Debian 6 to work on an hp Z400 - the problem is that it came with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 graphics card; there may be a driver for Linux, but it doesn't matter, because GRUB insists on switching to some sort of graphics mode and the screen just blanks and switches itself off. Is there any way to make sure during installation that GRUB gets configured to stay in character mode only?

Debian Installation :: GRUB Installation On MBR Fails To Complete

May 10, 2013

I have downloaded the Wheezy DVD 1 and started the istallation process. The installation time is strangely very short in respect to the Squeeze release, anyway

The GRUB installation step fails. I terminated the installation without a bootloader and rebooted from DVD with the rescue boot option.

Now I asked for a console to try to manually install the bootloader but the following command:

# grub-install /dev/sda1
[where sda1 is my root partition]

gets the following message:

/bin/sh: grub-install: not found

What can I do?

Ubuntu :: Installation - Error: No Such Device: F8b79a59-3c13-408a-b332-dd5e9dc37729 Grub Rescue

Jul 6, 2010

I already had windows 7 installed on my raid. So I figured that I would install Ubuntu on my 250gb external. I burn it, boot to CD, and tell it to wipe and install the external hdd. After installation it prompts me to take out the CD, then press enter for it to restart. It restarts, gets all the way through and then says:

Error: no such device: f8b79a59-3c13-408a-b332-dd5e9dc37729. Grub rescue>

I am unfamiliar with this issue, and would have looked for a fix on my windows side, but now I am unable to boot into my windows side at all.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Windows 7 Boot Option In Grub - Error 12: Invalid Device Request

Jan 12, 2011

I had a working dual boot Ubuntu 10 and Windows 7. Anyways long story short, I got it working again but have lost the boot option for windows 7. If i run fdisk -l, I get the following.

root@support-Latitude-E6400:/home/support# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes

I installed gparted and can see that windows 7 is installed in dev/sda6. In another forum, i read that someone had to edit their menu.lst so i did with the following.

title=Windows 7
rootnoverify (hd0,6)
chainloader +1

When i try to boot from windows 7, i get the following error. Error 12: invalid device request. How can i get my laptop to boot from windows again?

Debian Installation :: Wireless Device Is Not Recognized

Debian Installation :: GRUB2 Can't Find Encrypted Device?

Nov 14, 2010

I've installed a Squeeze-based distro - Crunchbang - with an encrypted root partition (no LVM), and it won't boot.

Here's what I get: Loading initial ramdisk. Loading, Gave up waiting for root device ALERT! /dev/mapper/hda5_crypt does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

Here's my partition table:
hda1 - Windows (Truecrypted)
hda2 - GRUB2
hda5 - /
hda6 - unused swap


What should I look for? Where do I go from the initramfs shell? Do I chroot? What then? This might be a Crunchbang issue (although others blame LVM which I didn't use, and it's the original Debian installer after all), but there's gotta be a reason it doesn't boot

I installed off a thumb drive and left the thumb drive in after install, took it out after install.

Debian Installation :: No Bootable Device Jessie Fresh Install

Mar 5, 2016

I am having a problem with my new Toshiba Satellite Laptop... I had installed debian for some time but last week suddenly stopped working.

- the computer stopped working at all... nor bios access.
- I did a new bootable installation in USB drive and downloaded the latest debian iso from official website and created the bootable device via dd as usual.
- I installed the new debian but after I removed the usb drive in order to boot into my new system. I was taken to a screen saying "Start PXE over IPv6 -- Start PXE over IPv4 ..." I followed several links looking for a fix, and all of them lead me to disable network boot option in BIOS setup...
- I disabled but after that it appears a new message "No Bootable device -- Press restart system" and nothing happens from there.
- I have found info in Internet regarding this issue, but all I find is "windows related"
- Someone recommended me this: "The BIOS can no longer recognize the hard drive as a bootable device. This could be for a number of reasons. Your best bet, if it is still under warranty, is going to be to bring it back to where you purchased it"
- But instead, what I did was to create a new bootable device, this time containing XUBUNTU and installed it to the machine, I had the good news that the installation proceed without any problem, so I could figured out that my machine it is still alive...
- Back to my issue and hoping that something unexpected happened that fixed the machine, I got back and did a new Debian bootable device, also hoping that the latest was corrupted or something, but after reboot to my new system... the problem persisted again.
- I chose to have 1 partition in full disk.

Now I don't know what else to do... I don't like ubuntu, I have used debian for some years and I want to keep using it and I would not like to be forced to move to ubuntu or xubuntu for this.

The only thing I can think of, is that the EFI boot is not set up properly by Debian installer, but I don't know how to fix it.

I would like to be able to boot my Server even if one of the disks fail or the filesystem containing the OS becomes corrupt, so I configured only the data partitions to be a RAID 1 device, so on the second disk should be a copy of the last stable installation, similar to this guide:[URL]...
