Ubuntu :: Clean Up Grub List At Boot?

Jan 12, 2010

I installed The latest and greatest Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) and everything is clicking along just fine except one annoying feature that I am unable to get my finger on.I have quite a list of choices at bootup. I updated a couple version of the kernel and there is this memtest thing...twice... Then my family also uses windows 7 so that is the default at the bottom of the list set to boot after 3 seconds to keep the nagging to a minimum.

I would like to know the cleanest and safest way to have the list only show the current kernel option and the windows 7 option if this is even advised. Would it be best to have a backup (Previous kernel) in the list? *just in case* Is it safe to seek out the old kernel by version number and uninstall? Will this remove the entries in the list? Is editing the list and leaving other options installed wise? Is there a gui grub2 configuration tool with these advanced options? I have StartUp-Manager, but there is no options to change the list.

Im looking for the best/safest option to get this done because I now see another kernel update image in the update manager and it is going to increase the size of my list once I find the time to update. Im a bit green and scared I will ruin a good thing here. Everything is working perfectly so far and I realize one click and it could all be over.

General :: GRUB Legacy - Unable To Determine The File System Type?

Dec 8, 2010

I had only Arch on an HDD.sda2 was "/".Now it's with Windows XP and sda2 is not a root any more but a container partition wich has sda{5,6,7} in it. I configured the dual boot and it works. It finds Arch and boots it, but not completely. Stops after some time and says: unable to determine the file system type of /dev/sda2. FSTAB is configured, sda{5,6,7} are on their places. So I can't boot Arch. XP boots correctly. What do I do with this error?Also it says: try adding rootfstype=your_filesystem_type to kernel command line.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Won't Boot New Clean Install

Feb 24, 2010

A friend of mine asked me to install ubuntu on his system as he finally got enough of all the flaws and problems in his vista. I said no problems ill have ubuntu up and running in no time! Well this is 2 days later and still nothing, he's computer refuses to boot from cd, i been changing the boot sequence allot but no indications of it wanting to boot the cd at all, whatever i try. So i made a bootable ubuntu usb-stick, doesnt work everytime i boot but sometimes... i get the load-up-screen, select install ubuntu, go ahead with the install, everything goes like clockwork. "restart is needed" sure, i restart it. grub says something like cant boot, or nothing to boot on hdd.. and thats that. ive reinstalled it several times (10+), trying ext2,ext3,ext4, partitioning it diffrently, ive tried it all. i even took out the scsi hdd, and tried an old ide-drive i had, gave me the exact same error..

i dont have all the specs but ill write what i know:

GA-ma78gm-s2h gigabyte motherboard
AMD Quad 3ghz
4 gb ddr
500 gb scsi

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Clean Install Causes Grub Unknown FileSystem

May 7, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and during the upgrade it asked to install a new version of grub or keep the current one. Thinking that I should just upgrade the grub just to make sure that I had the latest version I decided to do it. So I told it the partitions to use the ubuntu, ubuntu swap, vista, and vista recovery.Finished the upgrade and restarted.I tried to boot into both the vista, and vista recovery but I noticed something weird. Grub switched the names, the actual vista install is called recovery, and when you tried to load it, a blinking cursor would appear for a split second and then loop back to grub. If you tried to select the vista recovery now called vista it would just sit at the blinking cursor for infinity. But booting into ubuntu worked.

So I decided to wipe ubuntu and do a fresh install of 10.04. Went through and set up the swap and ext4 partitions at the end of the hard drive(because I would like to expand the windows directory should I ever be able to boot into it). Now when I start up and select vista recovery now called vista it sits at the blinking cursor just as before.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Error 15 On Clean Install / Fix It?

Dec 11, 2010

I reformatted my root partition and boot partitions and installed ,averick but zhen I boot I get a grub 15 error. I might have made a mistake on the partitioning screen zhen I selected /dev/dsa6 for the GRUB bootloader - this is my dedicated /boot partition - and don't know how to fix it now

my current fstab is code...

By mounting all partitions one by one I can see now that everything has moved around so that

sda is the bigbastard drive - 500GB - that was sdb previously
sdb is supersize/basckup and was sdc before
the paritions on sda have moved to sdc

I have no idea hot to put everything back

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade :: Work Around "dirty File Systems" On Clean Disk?

Jul 2, 2011

After preupgrade downloads install media and reboots to start install, I get a dirty file systems error on /dev/sda2, my / partition.I fsck'd sda1,2,3,4,5,6 (all clean) and rebooted, ran preupgrade again and got same error. No other disks are mounted other than internal SSD.wtf is going on here? ;-)More importantly how does one get around this error? Only half-solution I have found on the net for this problem is to set allowDirty=1 in upgrade.py and recreate install.img. Have no preupgraded before so don't want to take any more risks than necessary.Thanks for any workarounds....---------- Post added at 03:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:31 AM ----------Anyone have ideas here? I'd like to avoid yum upgrading as that looks to entail more pain.Why on earth does Anaconda see my /dev/sda2 on "/" as dirty when fsck reports it as clean

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Freezes On A Clean Install With A Laptop?

Feb 6, 2010

Scenario new-clean laptop computer "Hundyx W765TUN" with this test results:

- Intel Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10GHz: well managed with Live-CD
- VGA NVIDIA G98M/GeForce-G105M: well managed with Live-CD
- CD/DVD Matshita UJ890AS: well managed with Live-CD
- Audio Intel ICH9/82801I: well managed with Live-CD


On every installation I've cleaned the MBR and made new partitioning at all for a single system. Tried to partition the disk manually and tried the "use entire disk" option with the automatic wizard. Same results on all cases, when the installation process goes well at all.

I've tried also to leave the computer some hours with the "GRUB Loading." message, but it doesn't move and remains with the same screen/text. Cursor remains blinking all the time under the GRUB message. In all cases Control+Alt+Del works to reboot. With hundreds of installations made, I've never found the same situation. It would be so strange to be a hardware issue.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Boot Loader Failure On Clean Install

Feb 14, 2010

I'm having a problem installing Ubuntu Studio 9.10-alternate-amd64 onto my machine. This is the third attempt and I keep running into the same problem. Grub Boot Loader will only install to 16% when a screen pops up:

Ubuntu Installer Main Menu

Choose the next step in the install process:

choose language
configure the keyboard
detect and mount CD-rom

choosing the option "Install Grub boot loader on a hard disk" sends me back to the Grub install and once again at 16% the Ubuntu Installer Main Menu pops up. Choosing the option "Install the Lilo Boot Loader on a hard disk" resolves in an Lilo-install failure and i'm directed back to the Installer Main Menu. The option "Finish the installation" sends me back to the same menu..I'm stumped as to what to do... a disk check ensured me that the instal-dvd is valid though I can't get past this silly install menu.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Not Showing After Dual Boot Clean Install?

Mar 21, 2011

I installed Windows 7 and then Ubuntu 10.10 64 bits. The Ubuntu installation went fine but when rebooting a "check disk" appeared and since then my PC keeps booting directly on Windows. I tried all the GRUB reinstallation methods of the GRUB2 Community Documentation with the live CD but none worked.

Below is the output of the Boot Info script found on several threads.

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Re-install - Live Disk Not Recognized In GRUB?

Apr 18, 2011

I have an old HP PC with 2 drives: Primary (C = 20GB) and a slave (E = 60GB). I have Windows XP Pro OS (which I want to completely replace with Ubuntu). Ubuntu 10.10 is installed on E as a side-by-side (with XP on C). I am done testing Ubuntu and now want to completely replace the XP OS.Ubuntu is installed on E-drive as a partition. ISSUE: When I log on the PC goes directly to the GRUB menu but I get no option to boot from the Live Disk 10.10 during the boot-up.

HISTORY: I have tried (unsuccessfully) to remove Ubuntu from my E-drive by use of the uninstall function from Windows control panel. I have also tried to remove it using the manage/Disk Management process but the "Format" and "Delete" options are unavailable (grayed out) so cannot use that. I would like to do a complete clean up and fresh install of Ubuntu as my only OS.I have read and tried a number of internet articles / recommendations about opening BIOS and redirecting the start-up to the disk, but I do not get any option or any time during the boot to do that.

1) How can I get my HP PC to boot from (recognize) the Ubuntu Live Disk (CD)?

2) Would a complete removal and clean reinstallation be a better approach?

3) And how can I remove Ubuntu from the partition on E (as I want to dedicate the C-drive exclusively for Ubuntu)?

This is my first post so please be patient. I am unfamiliar with this part of the installation process.

Fedora :: Unable To Boot - Grub Error

Sep 2, 2009

I installed windows and haven't been able to boot to fedora since. Without a boot disk my machine complains 'BOOTMGR is missing'. If I use a boot disk to access grub on another linux partition (/dev/sda5) I can try to boot my fedora install using its old grub.conf settings. However this gives me the grub error:

root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=63608748-e626-4a3f-9232-c836524f606f rhgb quiet

Error 2: Bad file or directory type
Darn grub thinks the file system type is ext2fs - this makes me think windows might have written something (perhaps its bootloader) to the first partition rather than the MBR.

Ubuntu :: File System Is Not Clean?

Dec 14, 2010

I have a 500 GB external USB hard drive that I use for putting images and backup data into.I had some problems with it not automounting today, and in trying to access the drive I got errors indicating that an operation was already in progress. Eventually it mounted on it's own, but I unmounted it and ran "Check Filesystem" from the Disk Utility program on the drive, just to be sure. After a while, it finished and told me that the file system was "NOT clean".So, what does that mean, and how do I fix it? Before I unmounted it, I was able to navigate the mounted filesystem, so it doesn't appear totally hosed.
