View Full Version : [ubuntu] unrecognised filesystem or no such partition

February 13th, 2010, 08:26 PM
I have installed 9.10 on an external drive and got the message 'no such partition' when I tried to boot. After unsuccessfully trying various 'grub rescue' and 'terminal' solutions I reformatted the partition and made a clean installation from a Live CD. Now i am getting 'unrecognised filesystem' when I try to boot.

I am attaching the RESULTS.txt generated by boot info script.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

check bios and make sure your computer is attempting to boot from the correct device. I had a similar problem when my bios was accidentally set to boot from usb device.

I choose my external usb drive from bios each time I try to boot into ubuntu. Otherwise the PC boots Windows from the internal drive.
