Ubuntu :: Automatically Boots Up Into Windows 7 - Can't Load / Boot Back

Jul 5, 2011

First, let me start off by saying that for the past 5-6 months I've been using Linux stand-alone without Windows at all. Recently though, I got netflix and found that there is no support for Linux distros. So, begrudgingly, I installed a small Windows Partition on my computer. So here's the problem: I can't boot back into Ubuntu. Whenever I turn on my computer, it automatically boots up into Windows 7. I know my Ubuntu partition is still there, because when I boot from my live disc I can see it. Is there a way I can fix this using Windows and/or a live disc?

General :: Unable To Use Boot Menu And Ubuntu Automatically Boots?

Jun 21, 2011

I dual-booted Ubuntu three weeks ago with windows vista. Now I want to get rid of everything windows vista and its partition.As I restart my computer the esc, f1,f2,f8,del, and f12 keys don't do anything on the screen that says Dell BIOS revision 1.0.3 the next screen is blank. and my monitor, on auto detect(analog input), says cannot display this video mode 1680x1050. I've tried using the live cd (I just put it in the drive, and don't know what else to do besides that)I've tried using sudo xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768 --rate 60 in the terminal but all I get is this -> xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default (I did this because I thought it might be a monitor problem)
I've tried going to disk utility...buts that all mumbo jumbo to meex: can anyone explain partitions me? I have: dell utility 49MB FAT,recovery 11 GB NTFS, OS 184 BG NTFS, Extended 56 GB, 53 GB ext4, and finally 2.1 GB Swap 2.1 GB which is the last partition known as sda6.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: WLAN Module Doesn't Load Automatically At Boot - 11.4 KDE X86_64?

Mar 21, 2011

Using tips provided in the "Sticky" posts, I have identified my wireless device -- BCM4322 -- and installed the necessary firmware and drivers. The device appears in Network Manager until system reboot, at which time the "ssd" driver module is loaded instead. After each boot I must execute the following commands to remove ssd and load the Broadcom driver:

rmmod ssb
modprobe lib80211
modprobe wl

The Broadcom README file provides directions to load the correct module automatically, but the commands appear to be incompatible with openSUSE 11.4. I'm happy to provide additional detail if needed

Ubuntu :: Windows 7 Won't Boot - Displays Windows Logo And Then Drops Back To The Grub Menu

Jan 9, 2010

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 with Nvidia GeForce 8200M graphics card. When I first installed Windows 7 followed by Karmic in dual boot I could boot into both OS. Now when I try to boot into Windows, it displays the Windows logo and then drops back to the grub menu. It may have started happening after Windows 7 installed updates. I tried reinstalling both Windows and Karmic again and it again worked initially but now Windows no longer boots. Does anyone have any suggestions about what may be causing this or how I can fix the problem without reinstalling?

OpenSUSE Install :: WPN111 Wireless Adapter And NETGEAR - Make The Module Load Automatically On Boot ?

Feb 14, 2011

Above adapter can be installed on v10.2 and 11.3 using ndiswrapper:-

1. Copy the 3 driver files from Windows:- like netwpn111.inf, WPN111.sys & ar5523.bin.
(Be carfeul about the exact names, because they have changed over time).

2. sudo ndiswrapper -i netwpn111.inf

3. sudo ndiswrapper -m

4. sudo modprobe ndiswrapper (the adapter should light up at this point and networks will be detected shortly after - see network manager). (Be careful of paths here - e.g. I had to use /sbin/modprobe - so 'whereis' may be necessary to find these commands).

2nd When I reboot, I need to run the modprobe command again. How do I make the module load automatically on boot? Also (and this is minor), can I bypass the KWallet, keyring thing? it seems silly to enter a password for the keyring and then click another password dialog, when I can just as easily enter the password for the network itself.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cant Boot Windows 7 / Getting A Black Screen And Windows Does Not Load?

Mar 21, 2011

i have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a pre installed windows 7 system. Ubuntu is working really well but the only problem is that when I try to boot into windows,

I get the windows sign and then I get a black screen and windows does not load. It seems to be an easy problem to solve because I can actually boot windows 7 in

safe mode with no problems at all! The problem is there when I try to boot windows 7 normally. To be honest I only need windows for a project that uses MSQL server.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Won't Let Boot Back Into Windows

May 10, 2010

I had a fresh Windows 7 install on for a few days before taking the plunge with Ubuntu 10.04. It's great except I want to go back to Windows 7 to reformat by iPod with the Windows HD structure. The problem I have is that when I restart and I am presented with the options of whether I want Ubuntu or the safe mode for Ubuntu or Windows 7 to boot I can't use the arrow keys on my keyboard to scroll down to select Windows. The arrow keys don't work.

The keyboard works fine with the computer. And the Esc, F12 keys etc work to access the bios but not to scroll down and select my boot choice. The keyboard is a silver mac one with the keypad [URL] I've tried searching for the right drivers for the keyboard in case that's it and I've searched these forums and google to no joy.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot Back Into Windows 7

May 9, 2010

I wanted to go back to try Ubuntu again. I used to use it and I wanted to try it again. So I make a partition on my external hard drive to put Ubuntu in. I tried WUBI but that wouldn't work, so I downloaded it and burned it to a disc. I boot into the disc and install Ubuntu NOT on the partition I made. (It wouldn't install there). So it made it's own partition on my External Hard Drive. It installs, my computer restarts and the disc comes out.

My computer is booting up when a command line type screen comes up saying GRUB recovery or something along the lines. I can't do anything or get past it. So I restart my computer with the Ubuntu disc in, and it brings me back to the install menu like it never did anything. I looked in the Disc Utility and saw everything is still in it's place, so nothing happened. I really don't want to be stuck in this Try Ubuntu thing. I can give you all the information I can.

Ubuntu :: Boot Up Automatically Into Windows Without Any OS Choosing Screen Appearing

Oct 11, 2010

Could i install ubuntu and whenever i boot my pc up, is it possible to boot up automatically into windows without any OS choosing screen appearing; and instead only boot into ubuntu when i have the livecd in my drive and boot from it?Im the only one who knows about Ubuntu in my family and most would be quite confused if they didnt find thereselves booting into windows as they normally would. So to get around this and to have Ubuntu at the same time, i want to only be able to access ubuntu by putting in the live cd and booting it from that. Or is it possible for information that i download etc. to be stored onto the livecd itself?

Ubuntu :: Windows Won't Boot / Goes Back To Grub - Resolve This?

Mar 15, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 5810T which came with Windows Vista. I prefer Ubuntu but I need some windows applications so I dual-booted Vista and 9.10.

There was a few minor problems with the Vista side but I didn't use it enough to care. A few weeks ago Vista would not open some programs and others would shut down automaticly and some would open but not connect to the internet like they should. This happened on my previous laptop and when I used the system recovery discs to restore the computer all those issues were gone.

I used the recover discs to restore everything to its original factory settings, it said everything was successful so I restarted. My computer got to the grub menu but when I chose Windows Vista as my operating system it goes black for half a second then returns to the grub menu.

I can get into Ubuntu fine, and I can see the Vista files when I mount the drive to Ubuntu. When I look at the files everything is the way it should be if I had restored it but I can't boot it..

Ubuntu Installation :: Setup To Allow To Boot Back Into Windows 7?

Jun 17, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 via USB drive. I have 3 disks on my system. Two are 1TB drives and are actual real drives, labeled sda and sdb. sda is where I installed Ubuntu (on its own drive). I also made sure that GRUB was assigned to sda during setup.The 3rd drive isn't really a physical drive, it's a stripped RAID. My BIOS has Intel raid support, and I have 2 500GB drives that form one 1TB drive, and that's the one that Windows 7 is installed on. How do I setup GRUB to allow me to boot back into Windows 7?

Ubuntu Installation :: Missing Windows 7 Boot Option - Get Back?

Jun 5, 2011

just recently, while attempting to boot to windows 7, i happened to select the wrong boot option by mistake, that is the windows 7 recovery (something like that, cant remember it specifically, but the word 'recovery' is there). the option has been there eversince i installed ubuntu 11.04 on my system, of which i cant find the answer as to why it existed there. so once i selected it (which was by mistake), it took me into some recovery process which i abandoned as quickly. it restarted and the windows 7 option was no longer there. the windows 7 recovery option, however, is still there. How to get my windows 7 boot option back?

Debian Installation :: Can't Boot Back To Windows

Nov 20, 2015

I installed Debian 5 hours ago, and I am fighting with it since then. I'll pass on the tons of issues I am encountering (wrong desktop environment (I asked for debian's, I got Gnome), shitload of various errors when doing basic things, resolution of a minitel).

The biggest issue I am having is that Grub is not listing Windows and I can't boot into it. I've tried os-prober and update-grub, the boot info script detects Windows 7 (it's windows 10 but, whatever), I've tried to boot into a windows repair USB stick and fix the mbr and boot through the cmd (which both returned success). I am currently trying to create boot-repair USB stick, but I keep getting errors about file systems not handling symbolic links...

How can I repair Windows boot (which seems to have been messed up by Debian's setup)..

Also, I am quite used to linux and unix systems, as I am dev and use Mac OS at work and used Ubuntu/Fedora for years, and I never had such a bad and messy experience with any of those OS...

Here is the boot-info generated with Boot-Repair-Disk [URL] .....

OpenSUSE Install :: Can Remove Grub So Automatically Boot To Windows

Jun 29, 2010

I installed opensuse 11.2 today on my external hard drive and everything is running great, but I want to see if I can make a modification to the way my computer boots. I share this computer with others and they are not going to be happy to have to wait for the boot menu to start when they turn on the computer in order to choose which OS to run (Especially since if they do not make a choice it auto runs opensuse after a few seconds).

What I would like is if opensuse can be "out of sight, out of mind" and only load when I put in the live cd and then choose to boot from my external...... is it possible to do this?I am not a computer wizard and do not work in the industry.
