General :: Stuck On GRUB Command Line / What Happened?

Mar 26, 2011

I am running Natty Alpha 3. I used Update Manager to install something (not sure what it was), then I restarted, but instead of listing all the kernels, it gave me a command line. I don't know what happened and how to use it.

Ubuntu :: Computer Stuck In Command Line Mode

Oct 5, 2010

I just loaded up the Ubuntu 10.04 onto a newly scratch built computer. It went to the desktop after loading up and asking for my password. I then navigated to SYS>ADMIN>DRIVERS and preceded with download of recommended drivers for Nvadia G430 on-board display adapter. Restarted the computer to activate the new drivers and it's stuck in Command Line Mode. I tried Ctrl/Alt/F7 to escape, along with a bunch of other things but nothing will kick this puppy into the desktop.

General :: Boot Into The Command Line/console From Grub 2?

Jun 14, 2011

It used to be with (old) grub you could hit a function key and add a runlevel option to boot a console, but I don't know how to do this here, wanting not to edit the grub config file, as seems the only apparent option: I'm trying to boot into SimplyMepis where there is no rescue menu option, so need the prompt?

Fedora :: Stuck At Grub Command Prompt

Jun 7, 2011

I was deleting some space off my C Drive and I believe I may of accidentally deleted Fedora, or some of it! I have a dual boot with Fedora and Windows XP so when I started my desktop up it would load into fedora by default or I could press a key to load XP! (It rhymes!) Now, however, it instantly loads up into "Grub"

And that's it! Run, Or Exit, or anything really, doesn't work! Except Reboot! So I'm a little stuck. It's an old PC and the Windows XP disc is long gone, if I ever had one! I had this thought that perhaps if I reinstall Fedora from a CD it many bring back the old command prompt and let me get back into XP again? Or, is that crazy talk??

Fedora :: GRUB :: Menu.lst :: GRUB Starts In Command Line?

Dec 1, 2010

Code:

grub-install -v
grub-install (GNU GRUB 0.97)

I loaded GRUB, and now when I reboot it goes straight into the 'grub>' command line. Initially GRUB had the root as (hd0,2), whereas the boot is on (hd0,1)...(hd0,2) is my '/home' partition, and (hd0,1) is my '/' partition... So on a bootup I ran...

Code:

root (hd0,1)
setup (hd0)

Now when I boot I still get the 'grub>' command line, but now the root is correct.

From 'grub>' I can type...

Code:

grub> configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst

GRUB will then show the menu, and I can click the listings to load them. All's fine, but why doesn't GRUB just load the menu.lst without my prompting? How can I automate this process of typing 'configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst' each time I boot?

Ubuntu :: Boots To Grub Command-line No GUI

Jan 20, 2010

I used the Wubi installer to install the latest version (available from the website) on my second physical HDD. I rebooted my machine and used the Windows 7 bootloader to launch Ubuntu and it launched a GUI install. I wasn't sure how long it was going to take, so I left for about a half hour and when I returned I was back to my Windows 7 logon screen. Naturally, I assumed the install was a success and I rebooted my machine. When I boot again I get the Windows bootloader and I see my options for Windows 7 (which works properly) or Ubuntu. However, if I select Ubuntu I am brought to a command-line and there is an output at the top of the screen stating "Grub bootloader." At this point do I need to type anything to launch the GUI (I'm assuming Gnome) from this? How should I proceed from this point, reinstall?

Ubuntu :: System Boots Into Grub 2 Command Line?

Mar 4, 2011

After installing the 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, I decided to have a new partition and install Windows 7 on it for development purposes. So this is the method I worked with:

Partitioned the hard disk with gparted
Formatted the drive in NTFS
Installed Windows

Booted into Ubuntu 10.10 Live CD and re-installed grub on the MBR Now after restarting the system a grub command line boots up. I was able to boot into ubuntu with the following commands:

Code:

find /vmlinuz
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 (or its equivalent)
initrd /initrd
boot

Is there any way how to load up the grub GUI with the options to boot up Ubuntu or Windows 7 respectively?

Ubuntu Installation :: Get From 9.04 To 10.4 On Dell Mini 9?

May 1, 2010

How best to get from 9.04 to 10.04 on my Dell Mini 9?

I hadn't upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 because I read that the WiFi card no longer worked with 9.10 on the DM9. What I see now indicates that to get from 9.04 to 10.04 I MUST go thru 9.10. If that is the case, I won't be able to download 10.04 because I won't have a WiFi connection.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Broken In A Dell Mini 9?

Jun 11, 2010

it was working fine. Then when I tried to turn my Dell Mini 9 off it did not respond so I "forced" to turn it off with button. Now it does not find the OS! The only solution is to reinstall 10.04 netbook version again? (I'm downloading iso right now because I had already deleted it...) Will some kind of "repair broken version" option appear when I try to install it? And what about my docs? I lost some docs when I installed 10.04 and uninstalle the original version 8.04... I do not want to lost them again!

Ubuntu :: Dell Mini With 8.04 - Installing New 11.04

I have no clue what is taking up room now. I've went from like 2.gig to down to 1 gig. I have run the basic clean auto clean and such that I can find thru google. But I have been wanting to install the new 11.04. I have no ethernet cords around and how good is the chance I can upgrade and everything go smoothly and since I have no USB stick and only 1 gig of free space. Can I install with GMountiso <virtual drive>?

Fedora :: How To Access The Grub Or Command Line

Dec 18, 2009

with that said i burned fedora 8, 10, and 11 checked the sha1 verified everything was fine i had originally installed fedora 8 on an old pc i had from windows XP without any problems messed with it some, upgraded to 10 again no problems. tired to update 11 got a message about ext3 not found ext4 not found, re installed 10 the loader loads up now i have a blank screen with a cursor it the left hand corner

again i had 10 installed fine prior to all this can any one point me in the right direction to solve this issue or am i way over my head trying to figure this stuff out. i have spent 3 days searching these forums.

i'm just not quite sure what i need to do. oh, i tried to install 8 again and it wouldn't take either. i think the 10 problem has something to do with the graphic driver it's a geforce 7400 nvidia and something to do with the grub, but like i said i get a blinking cursor and not quite sure how to access the grub or command line.

Ubuntu :: GRUB Command Line Appears On Start Up. YIKES?

Feb 14, 2010

I just booted into Linux and the Update Manager prompted me to restart. After the restart the GRUB interface I expect to see is no longer there and now it is just a command line that says press tab for more options.I have not got a clue with shell language as I have had no time to learn it as of yet. Do I need to uninstall and reinstall Linux or is there a command that can be typed that boots up the operating system.Even better is there something I can do that can return me to seeing the interface like I was used to.

Ubuntu Installation :: After Update Boot To Grub Command Line

Sep 29, 2010

I recently updated, and now when I boot it only goes as far as grub command line. There is no grub menu. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop with only Ubuntu installed -- no dual boot, no weird partition schemes. Originally installed Ubuntu 09.04 on this computer, upgraded a couple times and it currently has (had) 10.04.1 LTS running. The update should have upgraded from kernel 2.6.32-23 to 2.6.32-24. I can boot with a live CD and mount the hard drive. The drive seems fine, so it appears to be simply a grub config issue. I have to boot with live cd to get online to check for potential solutions. So I'm taking some notes on how to use grub.

Ubuntu Security :: How To Prevent Grub Command-line Boots

May 18, 2011

The ability to manually boot using the Grub command-line constitutes a big security risk in Linux, IMO.Any OS can be booted in this manner from a PXE-LAN, USB, or CD/DVD drive, circumventing BIOS-imposed boot restrictions. (Once a foreign OS is booted, of course, it can be used to access any part of an unencrypted hard drive.) Placing passwords or locking menu items (in the Grub configuration files) does not prevent a user from booting manually using commands entered at the grub command-line.

As it stands now, when presented with the Grub menu (or after bringing up a hidden Grub menu with the "ESC" key), a user only needs to hit "c" to enter the Grub command-line mode to facilitate any type of bootup whatsoever. (They can then enter manually the Grub commands to boot an OS on any device.) This is extremely insecure and allows any passerby to boot the computer with a few keystrokes and a bootable USB drive. How do I configure Grub so that it will require a password in order to enter the command-line mode (and thereby restrict boot options to the menu, which can then be password protected/locked) ?
