Ubuntu Installation :: Missing - How To Repair Grub File

Mar 2, 2011

I have installed windows 7 back to its former state in after foolishly messing around with some installation options in an Ubuntu install (this caused windows to disappear, and me to repair it). In *repairing* windows, I overwrote my grub file and the boot options for Ubuntu, so that it looks something like this:

Disk 1: Primary Partition - Windows 7
Disk 1: Secondary Partition - Windows 7
Disk 1: Secondary Partition - Free Space ( this is where I have Ubuntu installed)

How can I repair my grub file so that I can boot into my Ubuntu installation?

Fedora Installation :: Repair Grub Through Grub-ubstall - /dev/dsa Doesn't Exist

Jan 17, 2009

I am trying to install my laptop in a triple-boot configuration with Fedora 10, Windows XP and Windows 7 beta. I did already installed them in that order. This is how it is layed out on the harddisk:

Now i want to use grub to present a menu at boot so i can select an OS. Because I installed XP last it boots straight into XP. I've understood i should be able to do the following:

All goes well until the last step (grub-install). It gives an error stating that /dev/sda doesn't exist, which is correct; It doesn't. I do have the "device" listed outside of the chrooted environment.

My question is: How do I get /dev/sda available in my chrooted environment?

General :: GRUB Misconfigured -- Can't Boot, Can't Repair File?

Oct 28, 2009

The new GRUB2 was supposed to configure itself from the old grub, but got the kernel image partition wrong.I have booted from Knoppix live cd, but need to write to system files. I have searched, and found several suggestions that apparently work on Win machines, but RO permission for root on Linux is a harder nut to crack.

Ubuntu Installation :: Repair Kernel - File Not Found?

Mar 22, 2010

When I attempt to boot into Ubuntu 9.10, I get the error: "Error 15: File not found" I know the reason for this - I deleted it - Doh. A latest upgrade told me I didn't have enough room in the boot partition to install the latest files, so I thought it would be a marvellous idea to remove the old stuff, to give it some room. I obviously deleted something that I needed by mistake. I was using synaptic to do the remove & thought I would be safe. A good learning experience.

In grub menu I have options: Kernel: 2.6.31-15 - generic and also its recovery option, both of which get the same error. (It's a dual boot with XP as the original os). Ideally I'd just like to get the latest working kernel and put it somewhere appropriate, rather than do a full install. Is this possible and if so how? I have a separate boot partition (in dev/sda5), swap (sda7) and Linux (sda6).

Fedora :: After Rebooting - Screwed Up Grub - Can't Remember Terminal Command To Repair Grub

Nov 24, 2010

I created a new partition in Windows Vista which, after rebooting, screwed up Grub. I believe that I need to reinstall Grub and everything should be fine, and I remember reading the command to do this on this forum, but I can't find it. When I boot, I now get a black screen with white letters instead of the Grub boot menu. It says something about "Minimal Grub" at the top and gives me a prompt that looks like this.


I can boot the live CD and I have internet access with it, but I can not remember the terminal command to repair Grub. Can someone tell me this command?

Installation :: During A Reboot File System Crashed And Fsck Couldn't Repair

Nov 12, 2010

16GB RAI've been running the Debian-based Proxmox VE on it for six months or so with no problems.Today I loaded Centos 5.5 x64. During a reboot, the file system crashed and fsck couldn't repair.I loaded it again, did all the updates, and loaded my applications. On about the third reboot, it crashed again and fsck couldn't fix it.I don't really know where to begin. I doubt seriously that any hardware has went bad since yesterday.

Fedora Installation :: Repair To The Grub Boot Loader To Boot Into Win 7 ?

Oct 23, 2009

I have XP, Win7 Pro and F 11 installed. Before I installed F 11, Win 7 boot mgr was working fine. I then installed F 11 and I went to System/Admin/bootloader to edit it and it wouldn't bring up the boot loader. In the attachment was the error msg. Now my only option when I boot up is F 11.

I do not have access to the Win 7 DVD only the F 11 install disk since I am on a fishing trip and need to use Win 7. How can I repair to the grub boot loader to boot into Win 7?

Software :: Repair Missing Partition Table And Recover Data From Xfs?

Jun 15, 2009

I used to have a 1TB external drive with lots of stuff on it. But after a reported drive failure during a F11 install the partition table seems to have been lost. (I think F11 toasted it)

Disk /dev/sdc: 1000.2 GB, 1000215724032 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121602 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes


The drive used to have xfs and a partition. Is there any way to rebuild the partition? Or is my 1TB of data gone forever? The drives seem to be fine now... I just want to get it up enough to either pull any data or just to get a file list. Most of the stuff on the drive was from somewhere else.(ie 300GB of NRN data for all of North America.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 : DVD Menu Missing Repair Tools For The Installed System

Jul 17, 2010

It used to be that the dvd menu offered an option to "repair the installed system". THis was really very convenient. The openSUSE 11.3 dvd for x86 now only gives a "system rescue" option which leads to command line directl. Where have been "the repair the installed system" tools? How can we access them now? What is a reasonable set of tips that's supposed to be used after logging into "system rescue"?

Ubuntu :: Repair GRUB 2 Using Live CD?

Sep 24, 2010

I have been trying to repair the GRUB 2 Bootloader by using the LIVE Ubuntu Ultimate 2.7 DVD.

Basically I've been unable to boot Linux Ubuntu Ultimate 2.7 ( due to a multi boot set up) & read that it is possible to repair the boot loader by re installing it from the live dvd.

I've already tried to load up the DVD & run the Terminal program - on the command line I type '# grub-restore' & the reply is GRUB not loaded??

I've tried other command lines that are on various other posts but non of them work.

Or are there certain Linux operating system discs that have the function to repair the boot loader from the live dvd.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub 2 Missing In Action ?

Feb 13, 2011

After a hard drive failure I installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS in the secondary drive. The intention was to have keep the machine functional until I could reinstall XP and have a dual boot. I replaced the failing drive and reinstalled XP.

The main reason for keeping windows is for using Itunes and a ton of music on the Ipod. I can get into the Ubuntu using Super Grub2 and did try repairing Grub 2 with rescutux. I can of course use the super grub2 disk to boot into Ubuntu but would like to repair Grub2 so I have the choice at boot without the disk.

Here is the readout from the boot info script.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Is Missing The Latest Kernel?

Feb 20, 2010

I'm running Hardy 8.04 LTS 64bit. The Update Manager updated the kernel and then asked if I wanted to use the local version of the grub menu. The boot menu was getting so long I edited it to shorten it. Other options were also offered, like the builder's version, but I chose the local version and since then the new kernel doesn't show up in the boot menu. Sudo update-grub doesn't restore it to the menu.

How do I undo the local version of the boot menu so I can see the newest kernel?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Missing - Able To Boot Into Partition

Apr 10, 2010

I had a dual boot system(WinXP and Ubuntu). But something happened and I was not able to boot into my Ubuntu partition. It gave GRUB missing error. I tried reformatting the dedicated 40 GB ubuntu partition to NTFS and again try to reinstall ubuntu. But now, when I install ubuntu through boot time install, it shows that my whole hard disk is empty( but I have windows XP on whole hdd at the moment) and do not give any other option but to use whole hdd.

Alternatively when I try to install it inside windows, then after rebooting it shows, no root file system defined error and neither gives any option to do so also ( this method worked earlier o my PC). At the moment, It still shows ubuntu and windowsXP at OS choice menu at boot time but when booting in ubuntu, it shows GRUB missing. (I don't have any ubuntu installation on my hard disk at the moment).

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded-Missing Grub-not Booting

Jun 8, 2010

Had v9.x installed alongside Windows XP SP3 install. Have not used it that much since install.
Got the bug to upgrade to v10.

Went through the upgrade process, everything seemed fine.

At the end of the install process asked which dev to install GRUB onto - I selected only one drive, the wrong one of course, and the reboot failed.

Boots up with:

Have LiveCD running now to post. Ran Info_boot Script.sh - results below.

Will reinstalling v10 from Live CD fix this? Will this use Wubi or just go through normal install process? Or is there an easier fix to install GRUB on the correct drive to get the dual boot choice of Windows XP and Ubuntu back.

Naturally I need to get back to Windows ASAP - it's the net gateway and print server for my home/office setup.

Software :: Repair The GRUB From Fedora 11?

Jan 22, 2011

I'm going to be installing Windoze (because 3D graphics are still not there in Linux), but that will of course override the MBR. So how do I rewrite it? I just tried starting from the Fedora 11 DVD until it got into the 1st graphical screen, and then I tried to mount *any* of my Fedora partitions - I think it's made 5 of them (God knows why!!), but anyway,none of them would mount except /boot - kept saying "wrong fs type or superblock" etc. My plan was of course, to chroot my current Fedora partition, and then run grub-install, but of course I can't if the partition itself doesn't mount.

Ubuntu Installation :: After Update - Grub Won't Boot Says Kernel Missing

Jan 9, 2010

I used the update manager to update the kernel and whatever the other recommended updates were yesterday. I shut the computer down overnight and now when i try to boot into Ubuntu 9.10 i get a basic grub shell and when i try commands like "boot" it tells me there is no kernel loaded. I installed Ubuntu with Wubi so it is a dual boot system.

I've tried to access the Linux volume with a live OpenSuse 11 CD but there is no device to mount. It sees the entire hard-drive as if it hasn't been partitioned. I don't necessarily need to fix the installation. I just need to get my files back.

Ubuntu Installation :: Files In GRUB Folder Missing After Update?

Mar 4, 2010

The update package popped up with some security updates. I downloaded all of them and then hit the restart button. Now all I see after the winboot load is the grub 'dos' screen. I can get to grub rescue but thats it. I was wondering if there is a way to download the missing files from somewhere and place them in the grub folder as I am dual booting with XP.

I have installed Ubuntu onto a seperate partition as well.

Fedora Installation :: GRUB Win 7 And 13 - BOOTMGR Is Missing

Jun 13, 2010

Windows 7 wont start from the GRUB menu. After selecting the windows 7 entry I added to my '/boot/grub/menu.lst' i get an error saying BOOTMGR is missing. Both windows 7 and fedora 13 were freshly installed just yesterday. Win 7 first on one HD, fedora on another.

Heres some info:


Ger�t boot. Anfang Ende Bl�cke Id System
/dev/sda1 * 2 26762 15360000 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 26762 35682 5120000 82 Linux Swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3 35682 126504 52131840 83 Linux


Windows is installed on my 200 GByte HD, sdc1 - and since Fedora is booting from sda1 and the menu.lst says root (hd0, 0) the windows entry should look like root(hd2,0), no? I tried a couple of different variations of my menu.lst, but i always got this BOOTMGR error. I read that mapping is not needed since vista, is this true? i can only enter the GRUB menu after hitting escape on start up, is there any way how i can have it starting the menu automatically?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub And Root Device Missing - 64bit System

Sep 1, 2011

The problem after couple installations (10.10 --> 10.04 --> 10.10 --> 10.04-3) is that system goes to "busybox" after complaining about missing root device. I already have come to conclusion that this problem could be solved by telling the system that the root device is at sda1. However, I'm not able to start grub (by pressing "ESC") at boot before problems start. I'm able to start live-cd and I tried to install "over" the old one (same partitions without format, same username). No luck.

And in the busybox /proc/modules is empty for example. And the grub has worked with previous installations.
