re multiplr disk Dual/Triple Boot
oldfred, Question One please, would only have the target drive for each of the OS connected. I plan to add 11.04 & Linux Mint to my experimental PC (currently has 10.10 installed) both OS on different Drives?
Question Two Or use /home & /swap from my 10.10 installation has seperate /home partition should I install a seperate /home & /swap partition for 11.04 or fiddly around and use both with 11.04? Your suggestion please and Thanks, TopEnder
Due to Microsoft limitation, the MBR (Main Boot Record) partition table is the default option for initializing hard disks. However, the MBR partition table can only manage up to a 2TB partition. For creating or using a partition bigger than 2TB, you must initialize the HDD as GPT (GUID Partition table) partition table format in the Disk management option of Administrative tools in the Windows control panel. This type of partition table can manage HDD size up to 18EB (1EB = 1024PB = 1048576TB), and allow up to 128 partitions.
GPT partition is implemented under Windows XP 64-bit, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows7, Windows Server 2008 R2 or later. For detailed information on GPT partition table, please refer to the following Microsoft FAQ: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device...e/GPT_FAQ.mspx
oldfred, thank you for looking in on http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1705253.
Can you tell me, does update-grub command rebuild the /etc/fstab file?
I hope you'll join us
Just wanted to say that your continuous and obvious efforts to help the community is far than just appreciated. You've helped so many people (including me a couple of times!) that I'd like to congratulate you.
All the Best,

Alright, that is probably better and thank you.
Could you take a look at this thread when you have time please?
The OP has Win7 installed which shows up in Palimpset, BUT fdisk only shows the Linux partitions.
Fstab looks normal to me, but he/she cannot boot into Windows. I thought the solution might be to reinstall the Windows bootloader and then GRUB if Windows booted normally again, but fdisk has me concerned.
Thanks in advance.
If I run into problems helping people with boot and/or GRUB issues can I PM you or leave a message here directing you to the thread?
Sir, I do not know how many people have thanked you in this forum for providing solutions to users. I personally have seen several of your solutions and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the contribution you provide to this community and for making all our experience with Ubuntu a pleasurable one.

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to boot problem (no active partition)
"this is an old solved thread. You probalby should have started a new thread of your own."
I had started a thread on this a week ago, but hadn't gotten a useful answer. Found this one that seemed soooo close.
Will try your suggestions, and post results.
