    Hello
    Which Linux distribution (and version) are you trying to repair? (do you confirm it is Fedora/RedHat-based?)
    Please could you run Boot-Repair --> "Create Boot-Info summary", and indicate the URL (or text) that will appear?

    That is correct, I am trying to repair Fedora 18. After installation, my computer does not boot into either Windows or Fedora. Goes straight to the BIOS settings. I can only boot CDs.

    Boot-Repair wants to make sure your system is up to date and then un-install all of grub and then reinstall it.
    Perhaps in your version the options are different for dpkg?
    I am not sure of what the first command does, but if it is just checking if my system is up to date, can I just skip it?

    Thanks.

    @all: I am surprised "dpkg --configure -a" doesn't work on Fedora... any idea?

    Yes, you can skip it.

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    Hi. I've tried to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my old laptop via live usb. Unfortunately it just hangs up after the grub screen. After a long time troubleshooting I used Boot Repair. Sadly, it didn't work and I've been directed here to seek further advice. Thanks in advance and here is the URL I was told to post here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5699736/

    It's probably something glaringly obvious but I don't have a lot of experience with this sort of thing.

    How old is system?, What video card? If you have booted grub and get menu, it just may be video issues.
    Have you tried recovery mode which is in submenu or manually added nomodeset?

    Thanks for your quick response. I've tried recovery mode to no avail and and added nomodeset as you suggested but it didn't fix it.

    Here's some additional info:
    -My laptop is an Acer Aspire 7730 with Mobile Intel Graphics
    -Also, when I disable the quiet splash screen I get an bunch of error messages that say "AE_ALREADY_EXISTS". I can send a picture of the screen if you think it would help.

    I have seen threads on different models of Intel graphic chips. There is only one open source Intel driver and Intel supports it well.

    Some other settings & some just use generic setting to at least boot:
    http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2010/05/...up-workaround/


    • Older Intel video card: i915.modeset=1 or i915.modeset=0 newer: i915.i915_enable_rc6=1
    • nVidia: nomodeset
    • Generic: xforcevesa or nouveau.modeset=0
    • Radeon: radeon.modeset=0

    Thanks for your help. I tried your suggestions but I wasn't getting anywhere so I tried a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 and it all seems to be working now.

    Your link did not work but this did?
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/5700913/

    You seem to only have one large NTFS partition with Windows 7. Boot-Repair updated the MBR, but with Windows that is about all it can do. You have to have a Windows repair CD for your version of Windows. Often chkdsk is all that is needed. You show both old XP boot files & Windows 7 files but script shows you have them but cannot tell if damaged.

    If you have access of another Windows 7 system that is either 64bit or 32 bit to match yours:
