Ubuntu :: Mount Deleted Partition At Boot?

May 15, 2010

I deleted a Windows 7 release candidate partition from my computer. Now when I boot into ubuntu, it still tries to mount the deleted partition and I have to hit the letter 's' to skip mounting the partition each time my system boots. Where is ubuntu getting this partition information from and what can I do to remove it?

Ubuntu :: Tries To Mount Deleted Partition?

Feb 6, 2011

On startup my computer tries to mount a partition which I deleted (called Misc) and combined with the space of another. I get this message:Quote:The disk drive for /media/Misc is not ready yet or not supported. Continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery.I also notice that the folder for the drive is still listed in nautilus. How do I get rid of it once and for all?

Ubuntu :: Deleted Partition, Can't Boot Windows?

May 20, 2011

Don't have the Windows install disk. Tried to reinstall Ubuntu from the disk but it hangs at a black screen with aIf there's no disk it boots into grub rescue>.Edit: Also tried Super Grub Disk.Like the Ubuntu disk, computer doesn't seem to even acknowledge its existence and still boots into the "no such partition grub rescue>" command prompt screen.Edit2: Going to try Rescatux, I guess.Edit 3: I'm able to boot from the Ubuntu disk now, but it won't let me create a partition to install Ubuntu like it did before, offering only to replace Windows or to "try ubuntu".Edit 4: The following how-to does not work in my terminal. I get the result "Unable to locate package ms-sys" even after enabling community-maintained open source software (universe) and updating.

Ubuntu :: Dumbo Out ... Deleted Partition And Now Can't Boot Into Windows

Feb 8, 2011

So I'm a total non-geek, and am totally stuck. A long time ago, I installed ubuntu to dual-boot with windows 7, and everything was peachy. I recently decided to get rid of the ubuntu partition since I've got another laptop that I'm using exclusively for ubuntu (probably a bad decision, but I'm sticking with it.) I backed up the files I care about, and then I deleted all partitions (from windows) except the C:, leaving me with the C: and unallocated space.

Of course, when I go to boot up my computer, it gets stuck on the "loading...please wait" screen that it used to show before showing me my various boot options (several ubuntu ones, and then the windows loader at the bottom). It may say something else before loading, I can't tell since my screen is intact. I suspect my windows 7 installation is still there, but I can't boot into it. I have an HP Pavilion DV2911. I have a live disk, but my optical drive no longer works. I *can* boot from USB (and load stuff onto a flash dive) but I don't know what to do. I have no recovery disk or partition, since I installed windows 7 myself, probably badly. Where do I go from here? Is it a simple boot.exe or MSR error that I can fix? Did I do something worse than that?

Ubuntu :: Won't Boot After Installed Gparted And Deleted My Windows Partition

Jan 25, 2010

10 yr old Dell laptop with NO WORKING DRIVES. i was dual booting xp and xubuntu when i decided it was time to cut the cord. so i installed gparted and deleted my windows partition. now it won't boot. my assumption is that i never installed grub. i got a usb to ide cable so i can access the hard drive from my desktop (xp home edition). i read that grub should be in a folder called "boot". i see on my hard drive that i have: "disks", "winboot" "install", "uninstall-wubi.exe", and "xubuntu.ico". if i expand the "disks" folder, there is a "boot" folder containing another folder called "grub", but the folder is empty. is this where i install it? am i an idiot and missing something stupid? where do i download grub if i need it?

Ubuntu :: Deleted Partition In Boot - Goes To A Black Screen With A Flashing Underscore

Dec 24, 2010

I deleted both the partition with archlinux and the swap in order expand the windows xp partition. I am now unable to boot, just as gparted warned me. When I turn my computer on, it just goes to a black screen with a flashing underscore.

I cannot type anything, but cntrl-alt-dlt does restart. I have been attempting to restore grub and/or windows's boot method for the last 24hrs. The main things I've tried were the instructions here and using super grub disk. However, I have not been successful. I am running an Ubuntu live disk. At the moment, I just want to be able to run windows, but do not have an xp disk because this laptop was issued from my old college.

General :: GRUB Boot Menu Disapeared After NTFS Partition Deleted?

Feb 28, 2010

I have a dual boot system with Windows XP and Fedora12. Following is the partition structure of my harddisk.

Disk /dev/sda: 80.1 GB, 80060424192 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9733 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x5e5e5e5e
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 1912 15358108+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

[Code]...

I deleted the "/dev/sda8" through Windows Disk Management, and when i restarted the system. GRUB boot menu vanished and a GRUB console appeared. Then I booted my system using Fedora12 live USB and created a new partition at same place from where i deleted it, and then after restart my started working normally as it was before partition deletion.

But, I don't understand what actually happened. Can anyone tell me in detail what happened and why and what to do to avoid such things in future?

SUSE :: Deleted Grub Loader And Partition - Recover Boot To Load Windows 7?

Oct 25, 2010

I let a 'friend' use my laptop over the weekend. Now when I turn it on, it loads the BIOS details, then says no active partition, then no OS cannot be found.

It looks like they have deleted the partition with SuSE with the Grub Loader.

I cannot load up SuSE or Windows 7!

Any ideas on how to recover the boot to load Windows 7?

I have tried using the Windows 7 install disc to repair - but it does not recognise that Windows is installed and wants to do a clean install only.

Is it worth trying to reinstall SuSE and hope it detects Windows on the other partition? (I assume it is still there!)

I cannot get to a command prompt.

Ubuntu :: Set Up Boot Partition To Not Mount

Jun 19, 2010

I was reading this about setting up boot partition to not mount automatically. [URL]

Quote:

Some users don't want their /boot partition to be mounted automatically to improve their system's security. Those people should substitute defaults with noauto. This does mean that you need to manually mount this partition every time you want to use it. Add the rules that match your partitioning scheme and append rules for your CD-ROM drive(s), and of course, if you have other partitions or drives, for those too. Now use the example below to create your /etc/fstab: how to set up a boot partition.

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot - Need To Mount Encrypted Partition?

May 2, 2010

Times like this Ubuntu makes me want to pull my hair out. When I enter my pass on the login screen, it brings up a "Could not update ICEauthority file" error and then goes to a black screen. I've tried to fix this problem for the past 2-3 hours (searching google, these forums, etc) and at this point, I just want the data off my drive so I can restart with a fresh install of Ubuntu. I used the "gsku nautilus" command to mount the disk from a Ubuntu Drive boot, but it's not letting me have access to the encrypted drive. Does anyone know of a work around for this?

Ubuntu :: Can See Partition But Can't Mount - Boot Or Repair It

Jul 29, 2010

I just now re-installed 10.04 on my box, but now I can't get back into Windows. I'm getting the BOOTMGR not found error, that I'm familiar with, but the circumstances surrounding it are completely new to me. In the past I've encountered errors from hard-shutdowns where I couldn't mount the partition, until I checked it with windows first, but I can't boot into windows at all any more. I'm pretty sure my grub is pointing to the right location:

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount/boot Windows Partition?

Mar 19, 2010

Upon trying to boot Windows I got through the GRUB startup selections and then i get stuck at a black screen displaying "Starting Up. . ." That would be no problem, I just boot ubuntu instead and mount the partition to access the programs I'm looking for. Now I get an interesting error message:

"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00150000 size: 4096 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 1040: Invalid argument Actual VCN (0x15000011d92501) of index buffer is different from expected VCN (0x1). Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details."

I would run chkdsk in windows if I could, but that's my problem in the first place.

Fedora :: Mount The Ext4 Partition At Boot?

Jun 17, 2011

I'm trying to set up my Fedora 15 installation to automatically mount (with all privileges needed for read/write access w/o a password prompt) an ext4 partition on the same HDD. Below is the output of sudo fdisk -l.

Code:

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

[code]....

Partition table entries are not in disk order I'm trying to automount /dev/sda8, I believe. I'll check that when I've rebooted to by Ubuntu partition, 'cause that's where I know how to do it. I tried to use pysdm, since that's what I used to do the same thing in Ubuntu, but it wasn't found by the Fedora package manager.
