  1. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I'm glad for sure as well, after almost a week. I may be back soon because before I've never been able to figure out to share files over a network and how to set up a FTP-server. But these are of...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Oldfred, our posts crossed. It already worked by simply installing again, as I've described in my previous post.

    Thanks for your help man!

    Bart.

    Edit:

    No, I didn't get any error during...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Yippeeayay, a Major Update!!

    I installed Xubuntu again, right over the previous Xubuntu-installation, as the installer opted me to choose. And guess what?

    IT ALL WORKED!! I got a Grub-menu,...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Okay, everything went fine, even Windows was recognized this time, until the last moment: After installing Xubuntu Xubuntu I rebooted and I still do not get the Grub-menu.
    I took note of every step...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    OK. I'll be onto int in an hour. I must do some other things now. Life goes on...

    But one more thing: I think I should run this utility tyo remove those backup/stray boot-tables (fixparts, you...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I don't think not using UEFI will have such negative effects that it will limit my use or run into problems in the foreseeable future. (Do you agree?), so BIOS it will be as far I can see the...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I think what I want is not really the issue at hand, even though of course I want to have an up-to-date system which will have no update/upgrade issues in the foreseeable future. In that case I think...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Yay! I think I fonud them. Earlier I said no such setting are not in the boot-menu, but now I think I found them. They're in the Windows 8 Features., out of which I can choose between two Win8...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    How do I do that?
    But I thought everything was already MBR after deleting all partitions with that msdos-flag before I installed Windows again.
    I've got the feeling we're somehow running around in...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I accidently made "repairs". I thought the Reccomended repair button would show me what was about to be repaired, but it started doing things right away. I rebooted (Windows as well), no bad things...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    For what it's worth, here is a screenshot of the Testdisk deep scan result. Lots of Linux-entries that can't be recovered.

    I hope I don't have to run it again...

    And you're right...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Can happen. I already thought that your posts had not much to do with the problem at hand here. Were you posting your replies meant for this thread somewhere else? ;-)

    I thought testdisk was meant...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I've been searching and came across a tool called testdisk. I remember to have used it before for some other problem. I'm running it from within Windows. I chose "create" (a log), "intel/PC" or...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Was this last post meant for me? There are no partition"S", there is supposed to be only one. And I think that partition is somehow recognized, at least by this program oldfred recommended:


    Disk...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I w-ed and that seemed to have gone without errors, booted Windows (was OK), booted from Xubuntu-Live again and checked fixedparts again. This is what is says:



    xubuntu@xubuntu:~/Desktop$ sudo...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I'm sorry. That's what the website says I should do as well, but it gave me only little information, but then I didn't try the "print" command. This is what it says with the print-command:

  17. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Okay, I finally got to the gpt-backup removal part. I booted the Xubuntu LiveCD, installed fixparts (ignoring the warning that this is badly coded software, or something like that).
    But, at least to...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I know I have to reboot Windows after resizing partitions not to confuse Windows too much. Me being confused is already bad enough. And when I use the partitioning and resizing-method slooksterpsv...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I don't understand anything of it anymore and I think I'm one of the utterly confused. I used the "msdos" option when dis-allocating all the partitions on the drive before installing Windows. Why...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I'm still updating Windows... sigh... I didn't want to do it,yet, but it's something I can do at least partially while sleeping ;-)
    The drivers are ready to download from the motherboard website....
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    My question was more about the technicalities of the formatting, just to make sure I do the right thing. I'm not going to do that now anyway. I've finished installing Windows (not updated yet, I want...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Thats a bit overly optimistic. It is installing, but it's going to take a long time before it there in its entirety :-((



    Yes, it should be a breeze, if I don;t make stupid mistakes when I...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Thanks. Windows is currently steaming! I already got the first "wait a moment". Many more to go...
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    Okay, I just edited my previous post and added some extra info. We crossed each other. So this msdos reference is okay, this means a MBR is created and I can now continue to install Windows?
  25. [SOLVED] Re: Installation of dual-boot messed up BIOS boot-sequence

    I wish I had the same knowledge and understanding of these things as you do, slooksterpsv... What you sum up is pretty much what I did in the first place, but it ended up to be gpt. The thing is I...
