Ubuntu Installation :: No Booting - Restore Grub2 Preferably Without Having To Lose Any Files?

Sep 1, 2011

so i've just installed Burg loader in a PC which dual-booted Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04 with no problem using grub2 in the past. But after i installed burg it just boots up straight into the Windows OS and Ubuntu is nowhere to be found. Is there a way to restore grub2 preferably without having to lose any files?

Ubuntu :: Everytime GRUB2 Updates, Lose The Ability To Boot?

May 7, 2010

Basically, I cannot load 10.04 without 'nomodeset' being set in the boot line. Is there a way to make GRUB2 append this to every entry automatically?

Can I change the entry I have now somehow? Not a fan of GRUB2 so far here.

Ubuntu Installation :: Restore Grub2 Splash Graphics?

Apr 6, 2010

I installed Ubuntu on my system after first installing Kubuntu. Now when I boot into Kubuntu I have this garish mashup of Ubuntu and Kubuntu splash screens. They are mixed up in both the grub2 boot and the Kubuntu login.I tried running sudo update-grub within Kubuntu but that didn't change the screens. How do I restore the default (elegant) Kubuntu splash screens?

Debian Multimedia :: Restore Or Reinstall GRUB2 From Squeeze Installation?

Sep 21, 2010

How can I restore or reinstall GRUB2 from squeeze installation? I tried various suggestions from various online articles (most of them for ubuntu), but I couldn't find a solution. Is there any solution, specifically for Debian? GRUB reinstallation from install cd, didn't worked as well. Since I couldn't boot at all, I restored GRUB1 and I'm posting from Lenny, but I can't access Squeeze this way (probably because I have squeeze's partition, ext4 formatted).

Oct 16, 2010

I have Win 7 in my hard drive (sda) and I installed Ubuntu 10.04 in other hard disk (a usb disk), but when I try to boot my pc from the usb disk (sdb), the grub shell is displayed. No menu is displayed. When I boot Windows 7 from sda, it runs correctly. The problem it's when i wanna boot Ubuntu. I ran bootscript on the live CD and this is what I've obtained:

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Booting Windows Without Having To Use GRUB2?

The Problem, installing ubuntu over top of windows and vice versa causes the windows boot menu to forget about ubuntu.The Solution:1. Using bcdedit from within windows to edit the boot menuClick Start -> Type Cmd.exe run it in elevated mode (as an administrator) by right clicking it and selecting "Run As Administrator" Inside the console type bcdedit, notice that the ubuntu boot entry is still there, for example i use three o/s , windows 7 professional x64, windows 7 ultimate x64 and Kubuntu and it looks like this

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Not Booting From GRUB2 After Upgrade?

Jul 18, 2010

My girlfriend upgraded from Karmic 9.10 to Lucid 10.04 when the upgrade became available. She did it from Update Manager as opposed to a clean install.

I have no idea what she did, or how the process works (I installed from a Live CD on my own computer) and ever since she did it, she hasn't been able to boot into Windows XP from GRUB2.

GRUB2 loads up fine, with Ubuntu and Windows listed. It'll boot into Ubuntu with no problems. Selecting Windows will just re-load GRUB2.

I've tried re-installing GRUB2 but that hasn't worked. My lack of imagination means I have no idea what to type in to Google, or the forum search.

Ubuntu Installation :: GeeXboX With 9.10 - Dual Booting And Editing Grub2?

Feb 8, 2010

9.10 uses GRUB2, so the instructions below are obsolete. Is there anyone here who could provide instructions for adding Geexbox into the GRUB2 menu? If you already have a Linux OS installed on your system, you might just want to add a GeeXboX entry to your existing bootloader. This allow you to install GeeXboX very easily. From GeeXboX CD, simply copy the GEEXBOX folder into your Linux / partition (we suppose it to be /dev/sda1 here).

Modify the /boot/grub/menu.lst file to add:
title GeeXboX
root (hd0,1)
kernel /GEEXBOX/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 rw rdinit=linuxrc boot=UUID=$my_uuid lang=en keymap=qwerty splash ...
initrd /GEEXBOX/boot/initrd.gz

Just take are about two things:
- the field root (hd0,1) is to be adapted according to the rest of your GRUB's configuration.
- the $my_uuid value is the unique ID of your partition. Check within your GRUB config file, which value is set for other OS on the same partition or use ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/ to see which uuid matches your partition.

Fedora :: Dual Booting - Grub2 To See F15 Or Be Installed Using Grub2?

Jul 11, 2011

I installed Fedora 15, which was my first real departure from Debian based Linux OSs. I absolutely love the new Gnome 3, and was able to configure F15 to work as I wanted it to. On rebooting I realized that there was no boot loader screen, that F15 just booted and didn't give me a choice as to which OS I wanted to use. Eventually I was able to configure grub to let me see the boot loader and added my old boot loader as a choice. This worked well, maybe not a perfect solution, but it worked. This weekend I installed LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) to another HDD. LMDE uses grub2 and after the install F15 was not recognized.

Two questions: Is there a way for grub2 to see F15? or Can F15 be installed using grub2? I really don't mind re-installing from scratch.

Ubuntu Installation :: Error Booting 9.10 - Failed To Restore Crtc Config

Mar 3, 2010

I'm trying to boot Ubuntu from a LiveCD in a computer I recently bought that currently has Windows XP on it. The Ubuntu menu comes up when I boot but it always snags on an error "failed to restore CRTC configuration -22" or something like that, and just goes on ad infinitum.

I tried running Linux Mint too and had the same problem, which makes me think it's an issue with the computer itself - which is an Averatec, if that helps.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting From Grub2 LVM In A KVM Guest Fails When Using - Virtual Package

Jun 7, 2010

I switched a working Lucid KVM guest from linux-server to linux-virtual and it could not mount root at boot time and issued a panic instead. Switching back (booted from CD and used "rescue a broken system") revived the VM.

My first guess is that some DM driver module needed for LVM is missing from the linux-virtual package.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Play MIDI / Play Or Preferably Convert (MP3) Old SNG Files?

Aug 11, 2010

I need to play or preferably convert (i.e. to MP3) old SNG files, which contain voice records. From what I could find, it's basically a MIDI created by synthetiser. I think it was recorded by some ancient VLC player. I failed so far to play it on anything I could download.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 Missing Files After Upgrade?

Jan 28, 2011

Last night I attempted to upgrade my Ubuntu 10.10 (amd64) machine. After reboot (it installed a new kernel), the grub menu only had the memtest. Booted into a livecd and it seems that I was missing most of the files in /etc/grub.d/. Reinstalled grub-common and grub-pc didn't seem to restore the files. I ended up having to download the dpkg, expand it and copy the files manually so I could get the box generate grub.conf and boot up. I think grub may have been broken before the upgrade but exhibited the problem when it upgraded the kernel and reran upgrade-grub but I can't seem to figure out why reinstalling grub doesn't add the files back.

Fedora Installation :: How To Restore Audio Files To Original State

Jan 27, 2009

I installed F9 for a friend. She wasn't getting any sound. I ran aplay -l, but got no sound card listed. I ran lspci -v, but got no sound card listed. However,the output of lspci -v said the computer had a particular motherboard. I Googled for it and was told it had an onboard sound card. That led me to the package called realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06a, which I installed. It included an installation script, which I ran.

The script didn't work to compile various files it was supposed to, but it did work to delete various files from my friend's system. Here are the bits of the script that removed files:

echo "Remove old sound driver"
if [ -d /lib/modules/$KERNEL_VER/kernel/sound ]; then
rm -rf /lib/modules/$KERNEL_VER/kernel/sound/pci > /dev/null 2>&1


In the result, the failure of the compilation didn't matter, because lspci -v lied. She didn't have the motherboard shown, but a different one without an onboard sound card. Of the files deleted by the script.

I was able to reinstall libasound.so.2 and libasound.so.2.0.0, but I haven't yet tried to reinstall the other ones deleted by the script. Now, I want her to buy a sound card, but I'm afraid it won't work unless all the deleted files are reinstalled. I'm looking for guidance as to how I can reinstall the files deleted by the bits of the script I set out above, without completely reinstalling Fedora.

Ubuntu :: XP Not Booting After Grub2 Upgrade

May 2, 2010

I am dual-booting XP, and all has been fine for a while....until I upgraded Grub yesterday. This was due to the boot menu not updating properly, and I realised the system was still using the old grub. The update instructions I used advised putting grub2 on all partitions if you were not sure which one to go for.....I guess this has "upset" the chainloading process, as when I select XP from the menu, I just get a black screen with flashing white cursor, which doesn't seem to respond to anything except CNTRL+ALT+DELETE!

I can still access all Windows files from Linux, and can see that system files like boot.ini are sill there. Both systems have been backed up, but would prefer not reinstalling right now if possible.

Below I'll paste grub.cfg and fdisk -l; any suggestions gratefully received!

ps the computer is a Sony Viao laptop: Core Duo 1.6 GHz - 1 GB Ram - 80 GB HDD, running XP Media Centre and Ubuntu 10.04

# It is automatically generated by /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub
