    Boot Info Script: How to

    One useful tool for finding and fixing boot problems is the Boot Info Script. I often ask for the output when helping find and fix boot problems. So I put this little how to together to keep from typing the same thing over and over. (lazy).

    Special thanks to meiefra for authoring the script and making it available.

    How to get it - Download it from here. Boot Info Script - SourceForge.net

    How to run it:
    From your Ubuntu hard drive install:

    Open a terminal window - Applications>Accessories>Terminal

    Type or cut n paste the following.
    Code:
    sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh
    Update Karmic users - the default download directory is now ~/Downloads
    Code:
    sudo bash ~/Downloads/boot_info_script*.sh
    If you have changed the Firefox default download location. Then change the ~/Downloads/ part of the command to your download directory.

    You will be asked for a password - your user password. You will not see the cursor move or see any stars as you type - thats the way of the Linux terminal. Type it in and press enter.

    Where to find its output:
    The script creates file RESULTS.TXT in same directory it is stored in. ( default ~/Downloads)
    Add it to your post:
    Open RESULTS.TXT in your favorite text editor - cut and paste - it can be long please use code tags (the # on the tool bar) or add the file as an attachment.

    If you can't boot into the Ubuntu install:

    From a live Ubuntu CD:
    Same as above - except you will not be asked for a password.

    Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    A working example of RESULTS.TXT

    Here is the RESULTS.TXT file for a Desktop that Boots XP, Win 7 and Ubuntu Jaunty. It has a 200GB and a 320GB HDD. Both are SATA hard drives.

    Whats in the MBR? This PC boot straight to XP if sda is 1st in the boot order.
    If sdb is 1st it boots to Grub legacy. The menu has 3 entries for Jaunty, XP and Win7.
    Code:
    ============================= Boot Info Summary: 
    
     => Windows is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda
     => Grub0.97 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb and looks on the same drive 
        in partition #1 for /grub/stage2 and /grub/menu.lst.

    Re: Boot Info Script: How to

    Charly555, I think you hijacked louie's thread which is a howto and already posted as solved. You should post your own thread.

    You also do not say what your problem booting is. It looks like you have two drives one boots windows and the other used to but now has grub2 which the script does not correctly identify. Try switching drive boot order in BIOS.

    You also have two grubs? /grub/grub and the more common /boot/grub. You may have your grub2 pointing to the wrong grub.cfg?

    Re: Boot Info Script: How to

    Hi Louie,
    thanks for a great "how to". I have posted links to it heaps of times.

    One thing though, there is a typo that jumps out at me every time I look at it
    If you can't boot into the Ubuntu install:
    From a live Ubuntu CD:
    Same as above - except you will no be asked for a password.
    "no" should be "not"

    What problem? You must have posted to the wrong thread. This thread is about getting information.

    What you should do is start a thread - describe the problem - If your having problems booting - follow the steps in post #1 and put the results.txt file in the 1st post.
