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

Dec 16, 2010

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 :: 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.

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.

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 :: Error - No Such Device (Grub Rescue)

Nov 29, 2010

I have recently decided to try out Ubuntu(Lucid Lynx) using wubi. Everything was absolutely superb and realizing that I have a lot to learn and looking forward to it. Everything was fine until I updated and ticked 2 boxes for updating grub and restarted and couldn't boot into anything. I have xp on 80gb 2.6 celeron, and Ubuntu loaded through wubi on 320 gb external hard drive.

error: no such device??????????????????
grub rescue>

It may seem a little slow for me to put to the test your responses, because I will have to disconnect the PC that I am using and use those connections on the 2.6. This one I am using at the moment is 400hz p3.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Rescue Error During 10.04LTS To 10.10 Upgrade + USB Won't Boot

Apr 9, 2011

I attempted to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10. Upon restarting, I was presented this message:


error: the symbol 'grub_xputs' not found.

I poked around the forums and found several posts that would probably be helpful but... I am unable to boot from a USB nor can I burn a Live CD as my other computer is a netbook. I made USB first boot in BIOS, but no luck.

Ubuntu Installation :: Initial Boot On System - GRUB Rescue - Error: No Such Disk

Feb 11, 2010

I am fresh to Ubuntu and am having trouble getting it to boot on my system. I normally run XP, but recently added a second internal hard drive and installed Ubuntu on it. The installation went fine and upon initial reboot I received -

GRUB loading. error: no such disk grub rescue>

I am wondering if there is an issue between two different operating systems upon boot. I am not familiar with GRUB commands.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04.1 Install Fails To Boot -> Error: Out Of Disk, Grub Rescue

Jul 13, 2011

Downloaded Ubuntu 10.04.1 Desktop AMD64, tried to install it to a cleand HDD using the whole HDD, i.e. gave it permission to use the whole HDD. Installation process appeared to run OK but when it came to the restart it just fired up the message

error: out of disk
grub rescue>

I've searched this forum and found numerous references to these error messages but cannot make head nor tail of the diagnostic suggestions. Apart from anything else they suggest strings of command lines which I don't understand and can't enter anyway since they don't correspond to my keyboard layout (if I hit > or ) something completely different appears on the screen). Is there someone here who can provide a step-by-step solution in lay language ? Or is there such a thing as a bootable file which can be downloaded and inserted into my CD drive to correct this problem ?

I downloaded wubi to install it on my old desktop which runs windows xp pro. The installation went through and it asked for some updates. After the updates, it rebooted but got stuck to the msg in the topic sentence. I don't have no live cd's for ubuntu and tried to read some earlier threads but they don't make any sense to me as I have no previous knowledge of linux. how to deal with this in a simpler language?

I was dual-booting Ubuntu 11.04 just fine for about the last week but then ran into some issues and decided to reinstall Ubuntu. Now after the install I get this error: error: nu such device: d38af2a9-740e-4d3c-b267-2a3848e5d319 and it goes into the grub rescue command prompt screen. I have tried to reinstall Ubuntu about 6 times now, complete installs. I have tried changing boot priority multiple times. I installed off a thumb drive and left the thumb drive in after install, took it out after install.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Not Go Further Than Rescue Mode

Jun 30, 2011

I installed Fedora on my pc over Ubuntu and now Grub wont go any further than rescue mode. (Apparently grubs boot folder was on the Ubuntu partition. Now I see why a dedicated boot partition is handy.) I used VMware to install Fedora as im currently out of CDs. VMware is setup to use the Physical HDD for the primary HDD in the VM. (I made sure VMware disabled access to the windows partitions so the guest couldn't access them.)

I am in Windows 7 at the moment and am avoiding rebooting as that will basically lock me out of the only computer I have access to. I tried running the Ubuntu LiveCD to restore grub but dont know how to mount Fedoras LVM partitions. What can I do to repair grub or at least install an MBR that is capable of booting windows? I can boot floppies and cds using VMware but am not sure what to use to fix this.

Fedora LiveCD wont mount any of the partitions to install Grub
Ubuntu LiveCD may work if I can mount the LVM partitions.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx After Restart Error: No Such Device - Grub Rescue

Aug 27, 2010

when it comes to linux, but like the idea and hope one day to get away from microsoft all together. This is the second time I have tried to install ubuntu on my eeepc 1000HG in addition to windows 7. The first version was karmic koala netbook remix, and yesterday it was lucid lynx netbook remix. Its annoying because before the update packages are downloaded and installed it runs smoothly, even additional applications run with no problem, but after restart to complete installation the following error message appears.

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.

Debian Installation :: GRUB Unhelpful Rescue Mode After Updates

Jul 18, 2010

Today it happened again: After an apparently trivial update Grub (Grub2) enters rescue mode the next time booting, not displaying any useful help whatsoever at that point. (Remember that at boot time no manual or help pages are available.) I don't know what went wrong, but ... The harddisk or partition in question is now no longer a bootable partition.

I don't want to use much time trying to sort out things, so unless someone may direct me to at better procedure, I am going to save whatever can be saved from the hd and then reinstall debian (in this case: Sqeeze) from scratch. Nothing else has in my experience ever worked before.

Ubuntu :: Grub Rescue Error: No Such Partition And Can't Boot To Live CD/USB!

Dec 2, 2010

I have a netbook that dual-boots Win XP and Ubuntu 10.04 and accidentally hit the Win recovery mode in GRUB today, but quickly restarted without formatting or proceeding with any recovery. But upon reboot I just see: error: no such partition. grub rescue>

What I have tried so far: Boot to USB Live Disk... It won't, just goes straight to grub rescue.I do ls and it gives me (hd0) (hd0,4) (hd0,3) (hd0,2) (hd0,1) (fd0) error: fd0 cannot get C/H/S values.

set gives me

but if I try to boot it says unknown command so I figured I needed to find the right partition to boot from but I went through all of them with ls (hd0,4)/boot, ls (hd0,3)/boot etc. and every partition comes back "unknown filesystem".

General :: Broken Dual Boot - Xp / Ub - Error: Error File Not Found - Grub Rescue

May 21, 2011

Ubuntu 9.10 was set up to handle the booting selection - previously I thought it was xp but Ubuntu 9.10 "did" it. The system started out as a xp / ubuntu 9.10 dual boot on a 400gb drive. xp has 210gb, ub has 80 and their is a 100gb shared storage. Xp was installed first and then I followed a guide over at linuxconfig.org to get ub installed so that I could select which OS was wanted at boot. Ubuntu manages the boot up menu (Went back to look at my notes from the original setup) The owner tried to update to ub 11.04 and afterall was said and done the machine now boots to the message

error file not found grub rescue I can't say if 11.04 was properly installed or not. Ask whatever you like and I'll give the best answer I can. I think the xp install is okay but I can't say for certain as I don't know how to boot it outside the bootmanager at startup. Data has been saved so if I have to blow it all away and start over I can but I'm hoping I won't have to.
