    as an alternative, you can use a disk with Boot-Repair preinstalled, like eg http://sourceforge.net/p/boot-repair-cd

    @MashUseLinux: what was the problem before using Boot-Repair?

    i was trying to upgrade 12.04 to 13.04 in a dual boot system with windows 7 (in my sony vaio E series) but before going to install, i quit thinking i can do it some other time, but when i restarted, the ubuntu seems to be crashed...
    Now Ubuntu 12.04 won't load - hangs at Busybox v1.18.5 / initramfs

    @MashUseLinux: the failed upgrade crashed your Ubuntu.
    1) backup the data you can
    2) try to fix your Ubuntu partition by using a 13.04 disk to reinstall Ubuntu above your crashed system (sda7) this way: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuReinstallation

    @Nico: you should not have created a new EFI partition. Delete it (sda8) via Gparted, put a 'boot' flag back on sda2, then run Boot-Repair again.

    Thanks for your reply, I reverted the situation as you indicated, and now Boot-Repair tells me that the ESP is locked (http://paste.ubuntu.com/5724628).

    The system behaves as before: it only boots Windows, not Ubuntu.

    What's next?

    I have solved the UEFI problem partially: it turned out the partition was corrupted. I fixed it with fdisk -r, and reran boot-repair.

    I now get the boot menu and can boot Ubuntu. Unfortunately, I now get an error message booting Windows. (Still looking into this).

    I've been installing Linux for almost 20 years, and this is the most frustrating, but it's also my first encounter with UEFI.. I've spent the past few weeks learning more about UEFI ..

    Hardware is a Lenovo RD-330 with 2 disks set up as 2 stripes so I can use software mdadm mirroring later. The system will boot DVD's or USB flash and I've installed Ubuntu 12.10 and 12.04 in both UEFI mode as well as legacy mode, from both DVD and USB, multiple times. I've even tried installing OpenSuSE 12.3. I can't get the system to boot from the hard disk however which is my problem.

    The bios on this system is particularly unhelpful, as it's hard to tell from the names it gives in the boot ordering menu what devices that it's actually talking about.

    Anyway, frustrating. New system and it won't be sharing with any windoze OS..

    This was after the last UEFI install and running the boot-repair. Going through the "Recommended Repair" didn't work. I've since tried another legacy MBR install of 12.04 to no avail.

    Any hints would be gratefully accepted! Thanks in advance!

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

    I've been fighting with this all weekend and have attempted numerous troubleshooting steps. I have a dual boot of Windows 7 and new install of Linux Mint 15 (used to have Linux Mint 14 install with no issues). I have intermittent boot issues. Most of the time I get these errors:

    error: unknown filesystem
    error: attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd0'.


    My pastebin URL is:

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/5727629/

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
