    Question Can't boot Ubuntu from Hard Drive, new to Linux systems.

    I am very new to using any kind of Linux based system. The HP Pavilion dv2000 I had bought from someone else (Big mistake, I know) had an unofficial version of Windows 7. It stopped booting up that ISO completely one day so I needed a temporary fix to my problem until I can finish getting the parts needed for a custom built desktop that won't be finished for a while. I found that a new ISO would be better and I remember trying out Ubuntu a few years ago and enjoyed it. Here's where the problem starts:

    I have tried installing with a CD to the main 150GB hard drive in order to delete everything on there and start fresh, I tried to search for grub in terminal using grub> find/boot/grub/state1, but was told that program 'grub' is not installed. It says to type sudo apt-get install grub. I did that and restarted the computer, but it still won't boot without the CD. The screen just displays an error:

    Error: no such device: 84de2031-fbf6-435a-b14b-b024638f4ed5
    grub rescue>

    Putting the CD in just lets me start in live mode, or install again. Switching back to live mode and opening terminal to try and locate grub, I am told again that it does not exist and tells me i can install it again. I don't think grub is being put on my 150G HDD, but instead the CD for some reason.

    I do not know much about commands and code, if someone could just give me a basic step by step walk through on how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome,

    Please note for future reference; a desciptive thread title will get you far! You can edit this one to something more descriptive by editing the first post then click 'Go Advanced'.

    The CD is not writable so that rules that out. From the LiveCD you can install Boot Repair, though, from Software Centre (I think) or if not, all details here:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair

    That would be quickest and easiest if it works. If not, then we dig on ...

    BTW, you want grub on sda. Just that, not sda1, 2 etc. If you do a manual partition (Something Else) I think that is where you check where grub is going. It is sometime during install.

    Thanks for replying so quickly, I did not know where to post this in so thanks for moving it also.

    So what you're saying is that I need to write another CD for boot repair, it's not on the CD where the installation files are? Just wanted to make sure I don't mind doing that.

    I'll give that a try and see what happens.

    I tried to use Boot Repair, it finished and said it was successful, but I still get the error: no such device thing when trying to boot.

    From Boot-Repair run the BootInfo report and post the link it creates for the report in pastebin.

    Boot Repair -Also handles LVM, GPT, separate /boot and UEFI dual boot.:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
    You can repair many boot issues with this or 'Create BootInfo' report (Other Options) & post the link it creates, so we can see your exact configuration and diagnose advanced problems.
    For info on UEFI boot install & repair:

    I can't connect to wireless on that laptop when the boot repair program is running, is that needed? It asked me to when I tried to run the repair part the first time.

    Hi
    You can run Boot-Repair without internet, but then it will display the BootInfo summary in a text viewer, so you will have to copy its content and paste it in this thread between [ CODE ] tags.

    Alright then, here's what shows up in the text opened by Bootinfo:

    Re: Need some help here, new to using Linux.

    FWIW agree HP has the worst reliability when it comes to laptops.

    Can you boot up into W7 at all?

    Had a friend with an HP laptop that wouldn't boot into Vista anymore. Just got a black screen saying to run HP diagnostics & repair but wouldn't even run either correctly. However it ran Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD perfectly but would not install 12.04. Turned out that HP laptop had a bad HDD. Put a new HDD in and it runs great.
    Ubuntu 12.04 64bit Ext4 on a Dell Studio XPS Desktop Intel® Core™ i7-860 2.8GHz, 8GB DDR3 ram and Dual booting: Ubuntu 11.04 64bit Ext4 & 32bit Vista Home Premium, on a Toshiba laptop dual core AMD Turion 64, 2.0 GHz, 4GB ram.

    Re: Need some help here, new to using Linux.

    Hi

    When pasting terminal output, please use code tags. The easiest way to do this is highlight the pasted text then click the # in the formatting option at the top of the posting box.

    Thanks.
