Ubuntu Installation :: Boot/grub/win7 - Testdisk/update-grub Method, But It Didn't Work?

Mar 4, 2011

I have 2 hard disks. sda,sdb

In sda, I have 4 partitions, and I have windows 7 in one of the extended partitions [not in the primary partition].

In sdb, I have 3 partitions. 2 for storage, and 1 10GB drive for Ubuntu. Again, Ubuntu is not of a primary partition.

I had ubuntu 10.04 running on that for a long time. However, I wanted to reinstall ubuntu and use 10.10.This is what I did EXACTLY:Booted from Ubuntu install CD

Chose advanced istall

Selected sdb3 for Ubuntu

I installed GRUB2 on the SAME partition as Ubuntu aka sdb3 Installed then rebooted

I can boot into Ubuntu fine, but whenever I select Windows 7 bootloader from the GRUB menu, the screen goes black, and my PC reboots.

Boot Info:

Code:
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010 [code]....

ls: reading directory sda6/: Input/output error

I have tried the testdisk/update-grub method, but it didn't work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multiboot Win7 Winxp 10.10 Beta?

Sep 17, 2010

I have used Ubuntu 8.x before side by side with win XP with absolutely no problems, today I have a windows 7 working great, but it was not enough for me so I've installed winXP on another NTFS partition, and then installed the Ubuntu 8, but the problem is that grub didn't detect windows 7 only detected Ubuntu and win xp ( and win XP under the name "windows Vista" !!). I did rename the win XP thing, not big thing, but there still the main problem of windows seven, it's not detected yet. So what I have done is downloading Ubuntu 10.10 beta and repeated the same thing after deleting the previous partition that Ubuntu 8 was on and created new one and used it. But the problem stays the same.

I have 80 GB - all one partition - windows 7
and 1 TB - 359 GB -storage
-26 GB - windows XP
-26 GB - Ubuntu 10.10
- ~4 or 5 GB - swap
-443 GB - storage

I know it's not organized enough but I couldn't do better using win7 storage management tool So what should I do to make windows 7 detected by grab and bootable, and I really don't want to format any drive,specially win7.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Alongside Win7 But GRUB Doesn't Appear; Just Boots Win7

Dec 31, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.10 onto my new netbook from a USB stick. The laptop came with Win7 Starter, which I kept on a small partition. Installation was apparently successful, but when I start up the computer, it will go straight to Win7 and GRUB doesn't appear.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Winxp Alongside Win7 And Then 10.10, Can't Load Win 7?

Apr 13, 2011

When I load into winXP I can see the files for winXP and win7. When I load into ubuntu I can only see winXP. i did a sudo update-grub and got the windows loader, which then shows me winXP and ubuntu. what i would love is one boot page that has listed winXP, win7, and ubuntu. FWIW this is an acer netbook, winXP is on D:/ and win7 is on F:/, i used the windows installer wubi for ubuntu 10.10.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Beta - Grub Error On Natty Upgrade

Apr 11, 2011

My current setup was:
4 x 500 gb hard drives in (software / onboard controller) Raid 10 (1 +0) with Windows 7 x64 as the primary OS
1 500 gb hard drive with Ubuntu 10.10 installed

After upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 Beta, I hit the Grub Error. I have removed the 5th HDD but still getting it on boot into Windows 7. I am currently in the process of copying all files from my raid via a 10.10 flash drive boot (fortunately was able to mount my raid's partitions).

Fedora Installation :: GRUB Doesn't Load - Make Load Again Upon Booting?

Feb 9, 2009

I had Fedora 7 and Windows Vista dual booting on my computer. I just installed Fedora 10. When the live CD asked me where to install it, I chose "Remove all Linux Partitions and create default layout" The installation went perfectly, but now when reboot my computer, it boots directly into Fedora; GRUB does not load to ask me which OS I want to load. I know I did not overwrite Vista because I can still view my Vista files through Fedora. Here is my grub.conf file:

Fedora Installation :: Adding A Ɖ' To End Of Grub Line + Beta --> Production?

Nov 5, 2009

- Off a vanilla F11 livecd install, I stuck a 3 at the end of my grub line to boot into runlevel 3. I have been doing this for as long as I can remember (since Fedora 3). However now it seems to break and gives me a GRUB error. I press e to edit, and delete the 3. BUt it still throws and error?!?!?!?! Has this facility (ie sticking a number at the end of the grub line) been changed and why is my grub line now broken even though I've gone back and deleted the 3?

- If I install Fedora 12 beta now, will yum take me all the way into production when it goes live (assuming no killer bugs encountered), I'm guessing thats a yes?

Ubuntu Installation :: Load GRUB From Grub Rescue Prompts?

Apr 11, 2010

First the hard data:

Upgraded from Ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 via upgrade manager
System is AMD 64
Have dual boot with XP on seperate hard drive

[code]....

Then the wheelspin:

Seem to have knocked out GRUB as normal loading screen does not appear anymore.
Worse, I think I accidently installed grub to something labelled SDC5.

Cannot get anything except the "grub rescue" prompt. I'm not sure if using the LiveCD (9.10) can help. Have tried a few prompts from other threads but just ended up with mud splattered all over the place. I'm gathering I need to load grub, but can I do it using any grub rescue commands?

Ubuntu Installation :: Edit Grub.cfg To Boot Win7 First?

Feb 20, 2010

I set up a dual boot system with Win7 and Ubuntu 9.10. Ubuntu is the first OS listed in the boot menu. I would like to change the boot order so Windows is first. Also after running a few updates I now have multiple boot items listed for Ubuntu that I'm sure are no longer needed. Having never edited Grub and searching through the forum, I'm asking help. I going to guess that I want to edit grub.cfg. If so, what do I need to change within the following information?

Ubuntu Installation :: Replaced XP With Win7 - Need To Change Grub?

Aug 28, 2010

I had XP Home on my dual boot Ubuntu 10.04 LTS amd64 PC & now installed Window 7 Home Premium 64-bit over old XP. Before installing Win7, as a precaution, I disconnected the hard drive where Ubuntu is installed. Now, naturally, the startup screen (grub?) still offers XP. Is there an easy way to re-detect & rewrite the startup menu with the Ubuntu install CD without re-installing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS amd64 again, like a GRUB repair or rewrite?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Access Grub Menu After Win7 Upgrade

Feb 6, 2010

My machine is an hp 2133 mininote. It came factory installed with Windows vista, which repeadtedly crashed on me. To compenstate for this i installed gOS to dual boot with Vista. This was working fine but I was recently given a Windows 7 install disk, so I decided to upgrade. Windows seven installed without a problem but now I can't access the GRUB bootloader, windows 7 just loads automatically. I tried to restore it using the Super GRUB Disk usb utility but it didn't work, windows 7 still boots regardless.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB 2.0 Eats Win7 Line After Compilation

Mar 26, 2010

My ubuntu 32-bit 9.10 compiles kernel a few times, and now I realized my Win7 lines disappeared. First time when I made the dual boot system, I remember there is a line for Win7, and able to boot up Win7. And then I ran compilations 2 ~ 3 times, and now I see the lines gone. I know 'editing GRUB' is risky, and want to hear advice how to fix. - Actually I don't think I can edit grub.cfg file manually. In my Ubuntu Desktop menu, I still see and mount the Windows disk (physically different partition)

Ubuntu Installation :: 'graphical' Grub Breaks On Win7/winxp/10.04

Jan 6, 2011

early tl;dr: The fancy grub breaks on my wubi 10.04 install, can I force it to use the old grub?

When I rebuild grub.cfg (last time was yesterday for kernel update to .37), and shut down / reboot, grub breaks because it can't 'loadfont' and a few other errors which are related to the 'graphical' grub boot menu.

To fix this I have to boot into a live CD (also Ubuntu 10.04) and run the following:
Taken from [URL]

Code:
sudo fdisk -l
sudo mkdir /win
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /win
sudo mkdir /vdisk
sudo mount -o loop /win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /vdisk

[Code]....

I know how to fix it but is there a way to skip having to do this on upgrades
(If I edit the grub.cfg before shutting down then this doesn't happen, obviously, but sometimes I forget and this is the result. I'd rather stop the problem at it's source than fight against the updater).

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot (Win7 And 11.04) - Configuring Grub?

Jul 9, 2011

I wanted to install ubuntu 11.04 alongside win7 on my notebook (with no optical drive). I created 2 primary partitions (one for win7 [ntfs] one for ubuntu [ext4]) and 2 logical partitions (one for swap one for general use for storage[ntfs]) by running ubuntu from my USB Flash disk and using gparted. First, I installed win7 without having any problem, then ubuntu also without having any (apparent) problem (I installed boot loader on MBR: the default setting). After the ubuntu installation is over, I was instructed to restart my computer as usual and win7 started without asking me which OS to boot. When I run ubuntu from my Flash disk and run gparted and selected the boot drive as the partition on which ubuntu was installed, I got the error saying "missing operating system". I suppose GRUB is misconfigured and that is causing the problem because nothing went wrong during the installation processes. How to configure GRUB by running ubuntu from my Flash disk. BTW win7 is working just fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: RAID 0 And Win7 Dual Boot - Grub Cannot Install

Sep 13, 2010

I'm having serious troubles to install ubuntu-10.04.1. My raid is an hardware raid with intel chipset. Note that win7 is already installed and working with my raid. I made some space from windows, to install Ubuntu (40gb). First, I run the installer, everything seems to be fine. I choose to install Ubuntu were there is the most space free (sorry, I'm not sure about the real terms used there).

Then my partition with the vista loader appears. So the installer can see my raid, and should work fine (everything is detected correctly). But once I'm in the end of the installation (around 95%), a pop-up appears, and tells me that Grub can't install in /dev/sda and it's a fatal error. I can choose an another destination, but it doesn't seems to work.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Delete Kernel By Accident - Win7 Disappear In The Grub

Feb 16, 2011

1. Install kernel: see #2 (I make it with kernel file in /var/cache/apt/archive)

After installation of kernel, there may be some problems:

2. Win7 disappear in the grub: see the content below "Not see Windows 7: ", #6
3. Cannot connect to the network: see #8.

Quote: While trying to remove old kernels, I delete all of them by accident!!! There're now only two "Memory test" and a "win7" in the grub. Since there's lots of data on the disk, and I have no idea how to keep them safe if reinstalling the system, so I really hope not to do that.

Then I enter Ubuntu 10.10 cd, and sudo apt-get install a kernel (three 2.6.35 or so, of which two with "generic" and not, and one with "image"), everything seems OK. And I guess what I did really changed the system, since the source_list file in the /etc/apt/ did be changed. But the grub still has only 3 options. What else should I do to add the newly installed kernel to the grub? Or What should I do while I delete all kernels by accident?
