    Can't boot Vista from Grub

    Hi all.
    I am new to Ubuntu and can't seem to get Vista to boot from Grub, despite many hours of research. Any help would be much appreciated.

    This is my output from fdisk -l...
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 320.0 GB, 320072933376 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x1549f232

    Just looking at yours and mine, it seems that the only significant difference is that I have "makeactive" in the entries for my Vista OS, while you don't. You could try adding that one line of code and that might help. I know that I can boot Vista from Grub on my machine without a hitch.

    Re: Can't boot Vista from Grub

    Thanks, seagullplayer77, but I've tried that... It just loops back to Grub. :/ I appreciate the suggestion though.

    Re: Can't boot Vista from Grub

    It seems that Vista causes nothing but problems.

    I installed Ubuntu for a friend with Vista and Vista was able to load... after it did like tons of esoteric crap, like checking drives and scanning things and... I tell you what, it's black magic man.

    We use just Ubuntu in my office, no dual booting. So that's what I recommend to everybody.
    It's all about people

    Re: Can't boot Vista from Grub

    What error do you get when selecting the first Vista entry from GRUB?

    If Vista is installed on sda1 (as it both appears to be and should),

    the above should work.
    One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, speak a few reasonable words...

    Re: Can't boot Vista from Grub

    It sounds like you may of accidentally installed Grub to the boot sector of your Vista partition at some point if booting Vista loops you back to Grub. In order to get a clearer picture of your setup, how about downloading the Boot Info Script to your Ubuntu desktop, open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and do:
    Code:
    sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh
    That will create a "RESULTS.txt" file in the same directory from where the script is run, namely your desktop; please copy/paste the contents of that file to your next post, highlight the copied text, and click the pound sign # graphic in the Ubuntu forum message box so that the text will get "code" tags put around it. The results of that script will help clarify your setup and hopefully what your booting problem might be.

    Re: Can't boot Vista from Grub

    Northern lights, that is exactly what the entry is, and it loops back... It displays something first, but it doesn't stay up long enough for me to read it.

    Caljohnsmith, I tried to do that and got the result "bash: /home/kim/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh: No such file or directory" in the terminal.

    I know. I was simply mentioning that it should work. Which leads me to believe that this is not a GRUB issue, but rather one of the Vista loader.

    You need to download the script first (see link above). If you downloaded it, but not to your desktop, alter the location in the execution command or move it there.

    Re: Can't boot Vista from Grub

    OK, I'm guessing the problem is that Grub is installed to your Vista boot sector, so how about instead booting your Vista Install CD, go to the command line and do:
    Code:
    bootrec /fixboot
    If you don't have a Vista Install CD, you can instead download a Vista Recovery CD from here. Then reboot, try to boot Vista from Grub again using the (hd0,0) entry you have been using, and let me know exactly what happens. If it doesn't work, we'll need to see the output of the Boot Info Script in order to help you further.

    Ah, okay, thank you for clarifying that, northern lights.

    Caljohnsmith, I had actually tried doing that at an earlier time and nothing happened.
    Here's the output of the Boot Info Script...
