Ubuntu :: Shutdown During Loading And Fails To Load From Win7 Boot Loader
Feb 17, 2010
I have installed the ubuntu 9.10 and the pc already have 2 win 7 OS and 1 win xp I installed the ubuntu from win xp every thing go just fine but in win 7 boat loader it detects the 2 win 7 OS , previous windows ( the xp )and the ubuntu which fails to load from win7 boot loader ( the first problem ) but it is present also in win xp boat loader so when choosing older windows the win xp bootloader let me choose between windows xp and ubuntu which works fine when choosing it the ubuntu bootloader appears with ubuntuubuntu safe modewin7 bootloader
the second problems that choosing win 7 after restarting the pc from ubuntu fail to open it begin loading with the windows logo and then just shutdown the whole pc as if i have unplugged it! the only way to let it open is to choose older windows>>> ubuntu >>>> ubuntu bootloader >>> where there is win 7 bootloader option it returns me again to win 7 bootloader but this time the windows load complete ( mostly but may shut down also!)
I'm using the RAID1 setup, which is configured in the BIOS, as it is a HP Proliant server. i have 2 500GB hard drives configured in a mirror. when booting the install, it recognises this, and deals with it fine.
The problem is, when it gets to the section of installing the grub2 boot loader, it just stops and gives me the "ubuntu installer main menu" where if i select grub boot loader install it just loops back, and if i select LILO installer, it errors, saying an installation step failed.
It has the option to skip installing boot loader, but then, can i get it to boot a different way? can i boot manually into the server install and then install GRUB and hope it works? can i install grub1 rather than grub2?
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a separate partition, with Grub being in it own partition. When I start the PC only windows Xp is available. So how do I get grub or Ubuntu load with windows xp boot loader? I tried with Live cd, the sudo grub but then it says command not found. I think its because Ubuntu 11.04 uses grub 2.
I was stupidly compiling code on my netbook with 10% battery left. The CPU ate up my battery reeaally quickly and it did a hard shutdown while still compiling.When I boot up, the Ubuntu loading screen shows up for about two seconds and then it goes to a completely black unresponsive screen. I have a live install on my thumb drive, but I don't actually know what I need to do to fix whatever broke.Edit:Oo, something happened. When I pressed a key the screen filled up with a bunch of stuff I don't understand. But the last two messages are: [ 450.807328] Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!mountall: Disconnected from Plymouth
I experienced what i perceive as the craziest thing during 2 years of using ubuntu. About some months ago, I have two ubuntu installed on my HP-mini netbook: ubuntu 10.04 64 bit (CAElinux) and kubuntu 10.04, and run without problem.
One day, the netbook's battery run out of charge and I forgot to plug it in. The ubuntu, as usual, went to hibernate, but without harddisk noise, so I forced it to shutdown by pressing power button (as i think it is not normal). What happened later was the partition of 10.04 was broken, it could not boot, it even affected another partition as the netbook couldn't boot kubuntu 10.04.
I try to run liveUSB and CD of both distro and the liveCD/USB boot stopped on loading screen. So I try another linux distro: PCLinuxOS, which was able to boot but took very long time. The partition of ubuntu 10.04 could not be accessed.
After installing PClinuxOS in replace of kubuntu, I scanned the ubuntu 10.04 partition and the partition was fixed, I could access the partition and could load to ubuntu 10.04, but it took very long time. Here how it loaded: first: blank screen with blinking cursor, then ubuntu load screen, then back to blank screen with blinking cursor, then it showed numbers and sentences, like some scanning works. It took long time before login screen appeared (about 10-15 minute, while the prevously normal boot time in my netbook was less than 1 minute), but once its done, the ubuntu worked normally. This also the case in the PClinuxOS and the reason it load very slowly.
After this, I try to boot the liveUSB of various linux distro, and found some could boot while the others not:
Able to load with unusual slow boot time: PClinuxOS (latest) Ubuntu 8.04 Fedora (latest) Linuxmint 8 (based on ubuntu 9)
Can't load ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 kubuntu 10.04 latest linuxmint
The liveUSB boot could take 1 hour. I also try the latest Puppy, Gentoo and OpenSuse liveUSB but it couldn't boot, and it likely the liveUSB problem. I made the all the liveUSB with unetbootin. The ubuntu 10.04, 10.10, kubuntu and the latest linuxmint could not boot even after I scanned the ubuntu 10.04 partition. There was no problem with the liveUSB as it would load normally on another computer. I think it is just the variant of ubuntu 10 that is not being able to boot.
I was not content on this slow boot, so I try to format the two partition of ubuntu and PClinuxOS (there are another partitions though), and installed ubuntu 8. But it also happened to boot slowly as the previous ubuntu. Then I replaced it with linuxmint 8, and the same occurred. So I try to install windows on another partition, and it boot normally.
The question is, what is happening. Why do the forced-shutdown-of-ubuntu-10.04 affect another partition, to the boot of another distro? If my HD was broken, the Windows would load very slowly too right? Yes, in SMART Data (from disk utility) it showed "few bad sector", but i think this is not related to the slow boot. The ubuntu 10.04, 10.10, kubuntu and the latest linuxmint cannot boot until this moment. I am thinking there are some informations planted on my computer, that twist it to load some distro slowly, and prevent it to load some others. But where and what? (I almost arrived to the thought that this is supernatural!)
Because of my long story up there (as I think it must be reported), the conclusion is: 1. Ubuntu 10.04 on my netbook was forced shutdown (by me) 2. It caused the partition broken 3. After fixing the partition (by scan, but I forgot the command), it took very long time to boot, but the ubuntu itself run normally 4. It also affected the boot of another distro (slow down the boot time), but Ms.Windows boot time is normal 5. It also caused ubuntu 10 (and its variant) to not be able to boot from liveCD/USB 6. It also caused me going crazy
Now im gonna format the whole HD in hope of ubuntu 10.04 (and later) could boot again, but shall it fix the problem? (as formatting the previously ubuntu 10.04 partition did not solve the problem). Or should I buy another HD (or even computer) to install natty!
I have a Sony Vaio PCG-5A1N (built for Japan) which has a malfunctioning CD-ROM. The bios doesn't support USB external CD-Drives and it doesn't have any USB boot either.The only method, I am left to work with is the PXE boot. I have finally setup a PXEBOOT on another CentOS server and everything works fine all the way to choosing language etc....but after it grabs images/stage2.img this is what it gives me:
loader received SIGSEGV! Backtrace: [0x8048cf4] [0x300420][code]...
I am newbie in Linux and Ubuntu. Need qualified help I've installed Ubuntu on my first drive. And I have Windows 7 on second drive. At the begining the problem was that GRUB2 didn't see Win7 loader. I red GRUB2 manual and find solution which says to add some text to the file /etc/grub.d/40_custom. So I did this and here is my 40_custom content:
Code: #!/bin/sh exec tail -n +3 $0 # This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries. Simply type the
I've made a Live CD of version 10.04 on a machine running 10.04 (amd64). The disk boots fine on a 2nd machine but does not boot on the machine that created it. The CD/DVD is new and works for other things so I don't think it is this. The Live CD gets to the ISOLINUX screen but instead of "Loading" the screen goes blank and the system shuts down. I've tried everything I can think of (the disk works fine on another machine).
I have an older pc now dedicated to ubuntu and run 11.04 32-bit no problem, and previous versions as well. I just got new hardware and assembled it and wanted to make it dual boot with win7. Found the information and got it working so I thought. Everything was peaches and cream until the install finished. A long long message appeared with read errors from some drive (i think it was my swap partition but its just a guess), appearing and disappearing to fast to read, so it don't know what it was trying to tell me aside from "read error". After the the message it said remove media and restart now. Which I did, booted to windows, modified the BSD to boot to Ubuntu or windows, Get the grub2 loader and select ubuntu. This is when everything goes awry, I dont get any loading screen just a singular purple screen, if I press any key, it starts to flash, and every subsequent key I press cause it to flash faster.
I can run the livecd (64-bit 11.04) no problems, As well as win7-64 (currently to post this message). But i cant get Ubuntu to load. I deleted and reformatted the partitions I'm using and reinstalled with the same problem.(/boot,swap,/(root) and /home) under windows management they are listed as healthy(ext4 -- except for swap,primary -- except for swap as logical and all set to beginning). So I guess the question is what could be cause this problem? My settings for install, my bios, or something else? My system specs are Asus mobo, amd phenom2 hexcore, 4gigs ram, 2 ati radeon crossfired, a 2 tb hd and a 40 gig ssd.
i installed ubuntu after windows 7 but now i cant boot windows 7 i tried the start up repair and I've read through some questions answered on here and int figure out the problem i don't want to uninstall ubuntu unless it's my only option
i have ubuntu 10 and win 7 dual booting on one hdd, all of a sudden grub says error no such partition when i select windows at the boot menu. and i cant get to the win7 partition from ubuntu (to play music and stuff, this used to work, places, mount filesystem, 250 gigs whatever). i've tried the stuff in these links and nothing has worked so farpartition info

I just upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10 and when I choose to boot to my Win7 Pro it just loops back to the grub menu. I did choose the partition that Windows is on when I was upgrading and it shows up in the menu.
I updated Ubuntu and part of it was an update to grub. When it came up in the installation I told it to keep the old one and left everything as it was. Then when I tried to reboot into Windows it gave an error message. So I went back into Ubuntu and reinstalled grub and now when I select Windows it just loops back to grub.
I'm trying to install ubuntu on a laptop (Acer Aspire 6530), and duel boot with windows vista. However, when starting up the computer with the CD in the drive, the installer fails to load, showing only a picture at the bottom of the screen showing a square and a circle with a person in it... This persists for as long as I have cared to wait (hours) and pressing keys at first results in nothing, then after sufficient key presses just produces beeps...
I installed Vista on my Acer 64-bit laptop first, then installed Ubuntu 9.10 in a dual-boot configuration. And when I start up my computer, Windows Vista is an option in the Grub menu. But when I use the grub loader to load Vista all I see is a black screen, with a flashing underscore character (it looks a lot like a terminal screen, waiting for input). The screen just stays like this, too - I timed it once, and 13 minutes later it was the same.
[10.04]-Gobi Loader Fails on 10.04 RC, Worked on 9.10? I was using a program called "Gobi Loader" to manually setup my Qualcomm 9212 3g internal USB modem on my Verizon Wireless Gateway LT2016U NetBook. Gobi Loader program loads the modem's firmware so it is usable by Ubuntu OS. This worked fine on Ubuntu 9.10, but on Ubuntu 10.04 RC when I run Gobi Loader it just hangs. I've Googled for hours and have not found a solution to this issue. For me it is a big issue as in Ubuntu 10.04, my 3g access is not working. (I'm paying Verizon Wireless $60 dollars a month for 3g access my Ubuntu 10.04 can't use.)
The only option I see now is to install Windows(R) XP, then reinstall Ubuntu 10.04 and dual boot. I would have to boot into Windows(R) XP first, the soft reset and boot into Ubuntu 10.04. (but this is not something I wish to do) This Qualcomm 9212 3g internal USB modem is quite popular in NetBooks, and I can't be the only person in the universe who is using Ubuntu 10.04 on it so there must be some way to make this 3g modem work on Ubuntu 10.04?
I can be somewhat long-winded at times and I'd rather give a full account of the problem I've always used windows as an OS but have been curious about Linux for a while now, so after looking around online I decided to try ubuntu. I have an Asus EEE PC netbook that came with win7 already installed on it. Last night I downloaded the netbook edition of ubuntu via their website, burned the .iso to a disc via my external dvd drive and then ran the demo. I couldn't get it to boot off the disc when I rebooted, so I had to pick the third option which I think installed some files to the computer in order for me to be able, to run the demo. When it finished that and I rebooted, the dual boot menu came up with both win7 and ubuntu on it. I messed around with ubuntu for a few hours before deciding I wanted to keep it on my computer, so I ran the full installation and selected the side-by-side installation. I remember when the installer asked about the partitions. I wasn't sure what to do as I wanted to keep both windows and ubuntu. There were three options: 1. Install them side-by-side choosing at startup 2. Erase and use entire disk 3. Specify partions manually (advanced). I wasn't sure how much space to allocate ubuntu, so I chose the first option thinking that it would just give me a default amount and would probably be plenty to effectively use the OS. After installation, it asked if I wanted to continue testing ubuntu or reboot and start using the full version. I rebooted, and it gave me no option for windows 7. In addition to this, the update manager came up and told me there were some 200 or so updates available. This is always common with windows when you use it for the first time, so I tried to update, and an error came up telling me that I needed at least +500mb free space for the update and only had 400mb or so. I'm a bit confused, and I've since tried rebooting several times, but windows is still unavailable.
I guess what I'd like to know is why win7 isn't listed in the GNU Grub at startup, and how I can fix that. I would also like to know how I could go about getting more disk space allocated to ubuntu. I thought about just uninstalling it, and then reinstalling it and giving myself 10-20gb of space when asked about the partitions again, but I obviously can't do that right now. The only other thing that I could think of was doing a factory restore for my netbook to get windows back, and then reinstalling ubuntu once again. I wasn't sure that would work though and didn't want to take the chance without getting the advice of somebody much smarter than me.
I unable to connect to samba but after change the register (Windows7 - SambaWiki),I could login and map/access the share drive.but when I try to shudown/restart/logoff win7 , the screen just stop with windows logo without the shutdown/restart words coming out.
A few days ago I installed openSUSE 11.4 on a 1TB HP external hard drive. I have some very important files for school and personal work on my main hard drive, running windows 7, so I made sure the installation only affected my external hard drive. With the external hard drive plugged in it boots just fine but when it is un-plugged it says Grub loading stage 1.5. Error 21 and it won't do anything. This kind of pisses me off because there were no warnings and nothing was supposed to happen to my main hard drive. But this has already happened and now I want to know if there is any way I could fix it so I can boot windows 7 normally and still boot openSUSE with the external hard drive plugged in.
when my pc boots and shuts down my monitor goes into 'input out of range' mode for a bit between the gui and the text only phases of boot/shutdown.is there a way to fix this? or where to start troubleshooting?also, when it shuts down it hangs after coming back to the text only part
I just got a Tablet PC, and I installed Ubuntu on it. But, problem is, I tried to install 10.10, and it would install properly, but it wouldn't load, just brought up the GRUB loader with a terminal prompt. I ended up having to install 7.04, and it works great. but I'd like to upgrade it.
I just finished my Windows 7 reinstall, and I go to reboot into Linux, and there's not grub loader. I go into a live CD and get into the grub prompt. Here's what I got: sudo grub grub> root (hd0,0) grub> setup (hd0) Error 17: Cannot mound selected partition
As for additional information, my fstab is listed below: aufs / aufs rw 0 0 tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0 /dev/sda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
