So I've installed KK, more than once, and grub still only gives me options for 8.10. Frankly I don't know what else to say. I have no idea what to do.

Well, I have no idea what you are talking about here so I don't know what to say either.

8.10?

Are you trying to upgrade 8.10 to 9.10? (this will not work)

Is this a clean install?

Are you trying to clean install over 8.10?

I have tried to install from 8.10 and that didn't work.

So I chose the option to erase and install 9.10 and that didn't work.

Both times the install didn't say anything that led me to believe that there was a problem.

However, grub still has only 8.10 boot options.

I really have no idea how could get rid of the distro that I now without wiping out everything on that drive. Ideally that is what I'd do at this point.

What else is on this drive?

When you boot with a Live CD what can you see on the drive?

Did you check the md5sum on your ISO?

There's any number of things on that drive; my concern is that 9.10 isn't doing what I would expect it to and erasing the previous OS.

Booting from the live CD lets me see, as far as I can tell, everything on that drive.

No I haven't done that. What would I do if I did that?

The best way to start troubleshooting this is to run the Boot Info Script as explained here:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1291280

It runs equally well from either an installed version of Ubuntu or the Live CD.

Post the results here and I'll try my best to parse thru the info. Be aware though that I'm somewhat backed up!

It could take me a while to get to yours! I'm just now reviewing yesterdays stuff!

Thank you, it'll be a few hours as I'm away from my box.

### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST
## lines between the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST markers will be modified
## by the debian update-grub script except for the default options below

## DO NOT UNCOMMENT THEM, Just edit them to your needs

## ## Start Default Options ##
## default kernel options
## default kernel options for automagic boot options
## If you want special options for specific kernels use kopt_x_y_z
## where x.y.z is kernel version. Minor versions can be omitted.
## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
## kopt_2_6_8=root=/dev/hdc1 ro
## kopt_2_6_8_2_686=root=/dev/hdc2 ro
# kopt=root=UUID=e4fadf58-8d56-41a9-a82e-26f54e787997 ro

## default grub root device
## e.g. groot=(hd0,0)
# groot=(hd3,0)

## should update-grub create alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. alternative=true
## alternative=false
# alternative=true

## should update-grub lock alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. lockalternative=true
## lockalternative=false
# lockalternative=false

## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the
## alternatives
## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5
# defoptions=quiet splash

## should update-grub lock old automagic boot options
## e.g. lockold=false
## lockold=true
# lockold=false

## Xen hypervisor options to use with the default Xen boot option
# xenhopt=

## Xen Linux kernel options to use with the default Xen boot option
# xenkopt=console=tty0

## altoption boot targets option
## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
## altoptions=(recovery) single
# altoptions=(recovery mode) single

## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the
## alternative kernel options
## e.g. howmany=all
## howmany=7
# howmany=all

## should update-grub create memtest86 boot option
## e.g. memtest86=true
## memtest86=false
# memtest86=true

## should update-grub adjust the value of the default booted system
## can be true or false
# updatedefaultentry=false

## should update-grub add savedefault to the default options
## can be true or false
# savedefault=false

## ## End Default Options ##

Is your BIOS set to boot the 250GB drive first. If you are just getting old linux your 61.5GB drive must be booting first. You configuration looks correct to me if the 250GB drive is booting first. Perhaps someone else will see an issue.

Is this a mixed Sata & Pata configuration. I have had problems with my old setup where the pata almost always booted first and that motherboard would not let me change that order. My new motherboard allows all drives to be set in order regardless of whether they are Sata or Pata.

I believe that I can change the boot order. I will try that. I got the impression that the install went to the 250 but it's worth a try.

Actually you appear to have 2 perfectly good installations of 9.10. One on sda1 and the other on sdb6.

Menus look right, fstabs look right.

The big question is were do you think you installed grub2? MBR?

Grub1.97 is installed on the MBR of sda.

No bootloader is installed on the MBR of sdb.

Heck I just followed the install. I could give a damn what drive it boots from.

So I should try and manually install grub2 somewhere?

Thanks BTW I really appreciate this.

There may be reason for you to give a damn if you want things to work.

An attitude like this and then ask others to bail you out is a little arrogant and certainly shows no respect what so ever for other peoples time.

Yes I realize that if you have a problem with Win JerryLewis Pro you just keep reinstalling until you get tired or it works. With Linux, thinking is actually a plus.

Sorry, I had no intention of coming across like that.

But if Ubuntu is going to have a GUI install then 'dummies' like myself are to be expected.

When the GUI install of a stable release of software tells me that it's installing something my expectation is that it isn't lying; that it will install all things needed to run the OS. Now after following the directions I'm hearing that I actually need to install something else manually and that the OS installed to 2 different drives!

If you wish you can also find my posts showing that the startup USB creator let me down, twice. Once when it said it would format my stick and actually made it inviable to Ubuntu itself instead (windows found it no problem), necessitating my formatting the stick with windows, the second when it failed to make that stick bootable!

So now I've got a bootable CD after borrowing a friend's burner, because I didn't have one myself. And following the install instructions resulted in this.

I've been using Ubuntu since Dapper, sold computers for 6 years and am currently a student at a prestigious law school; I think that I can follow install instructions.

So what I meant to say was, "I would like to have Ubuntu boot up my machine from an HD, any HD is fine, and what is the simple way to accomplish that?"

You are not the only one with this type of issue. It seems to be worse with grub2 but I had issues with old grub or maybe we are only seeing all the people with problems because a lot of users are upgrading.

There seems to be an issue with drive order. BIOS will always boot from the first drive. The issue seems to be that grub, ubuntu, BIOS do not always agree on first drive, if grub is not installed to the BIOS first drive you will have problems.

Did you check drive order in BIOS. Also print out /boot/grub/device.map to see what it says.

That really is a royal mess!

You have one Karmic in sda1 and another in sdb6.

Had you just installed a new hard drive?

I can see from the older 8.10's menu.lst on sdb1 that when it was originally installed grub recognized it as being on sdd1 as indicated by the root (hd3,0).

Where one XP is now recognized as being on sdc1 and another on sdd1, that old 8.10 menu.lst saw only one being on sda1 as indicated by the (hd0,0).

Unless you just installed a new hard drive I'd be very, very worried that you might be facing major data loss!

Just don't blame Ubuntu's installer. On multi-boot and/or multi-drive sytems it's fairly imperative to choose Manually select partitions (advanced) and have a previous plan laid out.

If you can get the Karmic on sda1 to boot you might be able to do some investigating and see if all your data is intact and then begin fixing things, but honestly I'm not comfortable advising on this.

I'd seek out a truly techie friend, not one that just thinks he knows what he's doing, but someone that really knows his stuff!

My thanks to the previous 2 posts!

I have a very competent friend but it's a matter of our schedules meshing.

Is there a fairly straightforward way to just get rid of both Ubuntus and reinstall from my Koala, or even a different distro, startup CD?

Did you at least try changing the 250GB drive to first in the BIOS?
