    Another grub dumba**, so please help me

    Hi all, I am a Linux newbie, but Windows pro, so I am not quite dumb, just a little

    So, like a lot of other people I am having problem booting Fedora 10 from Ubuntu's grub.

    Order of installation was: XP (MBR) -> Fedora (Self) -> Ubuntu (MBR)

    I guess I should post my fdisk and menu.lst (as seen on so many places )

    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x922d5f18
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1        3264    26218048+   7  HPFS/NTFS

    /dev/sda3            3290       19457   129869460    f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
    /dev/sda5            3290        5900    20972826    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda6            5901        8511    20972826    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda7            8512       11122    20972826    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda8           11123       11644     4192933+  82  Linux swap / Solaris

    /dev/sda10          14256       16866    20972826    6  FAT16
    /dev/sda11          16867       194
    *little explanation of partitions (skip if not interesed ):
    Code:
    sda1 = XP (x86)
    sda2 = /boot (ubuntu grub)
    sda3 = extended
    sda5 = XP (x64)
    sda6 = Vista (x86)
    sda7 = Vista (x64)
    sda8 = Linux Swap
    sda9 = / Fedora 10 (x64)
    sda10 = / Ubuntu 8.10 (x64)
    sda11 = fat16 partition... just for fun :D
    and

    Code:
    default		0
    timeout		10
    color cyan/blue white/blue
    
    title		Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-7-generic
    uuid		de076fd8-3336-491c-810b-548613cfa863
    kernel		/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic root=UUID=118c0fd2-1108-4992-bdde-c727443620e5 ro quiet splash 
    initrd		/initrd.img-2.6.27-7-generic
    quiet
    
    title Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64)
    root (hd0,8)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64 ro root=UUID=caa82743-ce2$
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64.img
    
    title		Microsoft Windows
    root		(hd0,0)
    savedefault
    chainloader	+1
    So, booting Ubuntu works like a charm, booting XP also, but when booting to Fedora it states:

    Code:
    Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition
    
    Press any key to continue...
    Thanks to everybody and again sorry for reposting this ancient question

    Re: Another grub dumba**, so please help me

    Thanks for your reply, no use from there

    All it said was to check partition number in menu.lst, and I did (before even posting) and to run ext3 check, which I did and nothing has changed...

    I can imagine why I am not geting a lot of replys, because it seems that everything is just fine... and still it doesn't work.

    So... please help.

    Tnx again

    Re: Another grub dumba**, so please help me

    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 the RESULTS.txt file to your next post, highlight the copied text, and click the pound/hash 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 the solution to your booting problem might be.

    Try the super grub live cd. It allows you to boot from the cd or rewrite grub to the mbr:

    Hmmm...

    I hope it can help clarify any errors.

    Regearding SuperGrub - my grub is working fine, I can boot to Ubuntu and XP, it just cannot boot to fedora, and I can't see the way I could use super grub to resolve my problem - please advise.

    Tnx again all for your effort

    edit: Boot on /dev/sdb is something you should ignore... it's just leftover from old windows (it's not included anywhere)

    I hope it can help clarify any errors.

    Regearding SuperGrub - my grub is working fine, I can boot to Ubuntu and XP, it just cannot boot to fedora, and I can't see the way I could use super grub to resolve my problem - please advise.

    Tnx again all for your effort
    Supergrub will/should rewrite grub to boot fedora also. You can add the fedora boot option manually if you like though.
    Hmmm...

    Re: Another grub dumba**, so please help me

    I did, I added it manualy (copy/paste from Fedora's menu.lst) and that didn't work, and I don't have any idea how to work with supergrub, so please be patient and precise in your explanation

    Tnx

    Re: Another grub dumba**, so please help me

    I am not sure what are you asking, but if you ask from which distro I installed grub to MBR and /boot partition then it's owned by Ubuntu

    In Fedora I said to install it to its partition /dev/sda8 so there would be files in /boot on /dev/sda8

    Correct me if I didn't understood what are you asking

    Tnx again!
