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

    Hi,

    I have a Toshiba Satellite that came with Windows Vista A200-2B7 and I installed Ubuntu almost a year. Last night I was fussing a mp3 through gparted and suddenly the screen freezes and I decided to use REISUB. When restarting it asked for the "rescue grub". Since then I've followed these steps - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair - but it didn't work so here is the link they gave me - paste.ubuntu.com/5846122/.

    I'm a noob so be gentle. And will this process erase my files? Because I don't want to lose my files.

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

    I can't seem to get Ubuntu 13.04 to boot on my system for the life of me. My current setup is Ubuntu 13.04 Server, UEFI, software RAID 1, installed from scratch. I've successfully installed and booted the following from scratch:

    - 12.04.2 server 64-bit, UEFI, RAID 1
    - 12.04.2 desktop 64-bit, UEFI, RAID 1

    These setups fail to boot even though installation is successful:

    - 13.04 server 64-bit, UEFI, RAID 1
    - 13.04 desktop 64-bit, UEFI, RAID 1
    - 13.04 desktop 64-bit, UEFI, non-RAID

    CDs and USB install media for Ubuntu 13.04 boot properly in UEFI mode. Running boot-repair doesn't seem to fix the problem, even though there are no errors:

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/5848522/

    In the BIOS startup disk selector, I don't see "ubuntu" UEFI in the list for 13.04, even though it appears fine when I installed 12.04. Something with the 13.04 UEFI installation is not compatible on my system.

    Thanks for your help!

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

    I connected my hard drive to a seperate laptop running Windows in an attempt to transfer over data, no when I reboot it goes goes straight to Grub and when I try Boot-Repair is says no changes have been made to my system. I don't have a windows partition installed, so I'm completely lost as to what the issue is. If anyone has time to look it over, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. http://paste.ubuntu.com/5851070/

    HELP!? Kubuntu alongside Windows, changed partitions, lost access to Window

    Hi

    I've recently installed Kubuntu alongside Windows 7 on my laptop. I have tried (ameteurishly) to change my system after I had the help of my LUG administrator (went pretty smoothly); consequently I am experiencing problems booting Windows 7. If anybody can help it would be much appreciated. I have tried to detail the sequence of events below:

    01-07-13 - KDE partition manager 1/0/3 (KDE.PM); resized and moved sda2 by aprox (-220GB and 2.9MB to the right)
    02-07-13 - Booted machine, selected Windows 7(sda2) through GRUB;
    'Windows Boot Manager' message appeared: 'Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
    1-insert windows installation disc & restart computer
    2-choose etc. etc.
    3-click "repair your computer"
    If you do not have this disc. Contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

    Status:0xc0000225
    Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.'

    Attempted to boot Windows 7(sda1) and failed(hasn't worked before either)
    02-07-13 (cont) - Used ubuntu live disc to boot up and access boot-repair; carried out 'boot info summary' URL= http://paste.ubuntu.com/5835884/
    attemted 'recommended repair' URL= http://paste.ubuntu.com/5835884/
    02-07-13 (cont) - Rebooted computer and tried to boot through Windows 7 (as above), but the same message appeared.

    07-07-13 - Booted using ubuntu live cd and carried out boot repair process again; 'boot info summary' URL= http://paste.ubuntu.com/5853660/
    recommended repair URL= http://paste.ubuntu.com/5853667/


    I don't have a windows installation disc and as of yet I've not contacted the company from whom my father bought the laptop.

    Does anybody have any suggestions as to what could have happened to the Windows boot process and can anybody offer a suggestion as to how I could fix this please?

    Thank you for looking.

    Vasco

    @vascofmbull: Managing WINDOWS partition from Linux is a very bad idea. If you used KDE partition manager to tweak Windows partition then you may have possibly messed up the Windows filesystem. Also it is possible you may have damaged the Windows boot files.

    You are using EasyBCD to dual boot. Boot-Repair will not offer much help. But since you applied 'Recommended Repair' Grub was installed can seems fine. There is nothing wrong with with Grub as fas as I can tell.
    You must fix the windows MBR first: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/20864-mbr-restore-windows-7-master-boot-record.html
    After fixing Windows you will have to rerun Boot-Repair.
    Good Luck...

    @vascofmbull:
    1) try the 'Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda2' entry of your GRUB menu
    2) fix the bootsector of your sda1 partition this way: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootSectorFix , then reboot and try the 'Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda1' entry of your GRUB menu

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

    Is this the right forum to ask questions on boot-repair? I ask because there's no support forum/link shown on the sourceforge page support tab.

    I have a UEFI laptop (HP Pavilion g7) that won't boot the boot-repair disk (64bit) in UEFI mode - I have to set legacy boot. It will boot the HP UEFI recovery disks. I noticed that the HP DVDs have two files at the root - bootmgr & bootmgr.efi, while boot-repair has neither. I've read that those files are needed for 64bit EFI. I suspect that may be why the boot-repair DVD isn't being recognised as an EFI boot medium. Is there a reason that these files are not on the boot-repair DVD? Should I try to remaster the DVD with them in - or try something else? Thanks.

    @ ALL
    Better to start your own thread with a good title. Few look a mega-thread like this, but many may help if your title has an issue similar to something they know.

    @ecardoso
    Script is not showing sda1. Did you encrypt your boot partition or does it have corruption. I might try fsck if not encrypted.
    #From liveCD so everything is unmounted,swap off if necessary, change example shown with partition sdb1 to your partition(s)
    #e2fsck is used to check the ext2/ext3/ext4 family of file systems. -p trys fixes where response not required
    sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sdb1
    #if errors: -y auto answers yes for fixes needing response, also see man e2fsck
    sudo e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sdb1

    @bobics
    I do not know RAID, but you have your efi partition outside of the RAID and it looks correct? If you boot in UEFI mode not BIOS/CSM what happens? If you can hold shift key or hit escape during booting then it may really not be a boot issue but a video issue?

    @joeystclair
    I think you ran Boot-Repair from the Windows computer on your hard drive. It now has a Windows boot loader in the MBR. And your grub does not look complete. Best to run the full uninstall/reinstall of grub from Boot-Repair.


    @mstahl
    You have two efi partitions. UEFI standard requires one and only one efi partition per hard drive. It also looks like you overwrote Windows but do not have a full install of Ubuntu.

    @vjones777
    bootmgr and related .efi files are Windows files. Not related to Linux nor Boot-Repair. If booting in Legacy mode you are not using and .efi files nor the efi partition to boot. CSM/Legacy/BIOS uses the old BIOS mode to boot from MBR not efi partition like all old systems do. Some computers will not boot anything but the Windows efi file which is against the UEFI standard. You should be able to boot Ubuntu or Boot-Repair with secure boot on or off. If not then you may have to install in BIOS mode, use Boot-Repair to convert to UEFI mode, install the signed kernels and use the rename function that Boot-Repair does as a work around for those systems that do not follow UEFI standards and only boot Windows.
