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

    @oldfred, thanks for the info. I was able to reproduce the same issue without RAID, using a single drive. I don't think this is a video problem since when I hit F7 in the BIOS I see the book device prompt, just no UEFI entry for "ubuntu" as I'd expect. I have a feeling I'm seeing this issue:

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/28646...ootmgr-entries

    Which has a link to the following bug:

    FYI, I was able to workaround the issue by avoiding UEFI altogether. I followed the directions here to boot in Legacy mode:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UE...to_Legacy_mode

    Since I only have Ubuntu on this system and I'm installing from scratch, this was the simplest things to do.

    Thank you, but unfortunately I don't have a Windows boot CD.

    Sometimes just using BIOS is better. BIOS has been debugged for 30 years so it has fewer issues but may not work as well with newer systems. But UEFI has more issues both the vendors UEFI implementation and all systems that use the UEFI.

    Some third party Windows repair tools include a chkdsk. Look at these:

    Third party chkdsk tools
    Also has chkdsk and some other Windows repairs in free version:
    http://www.partitionwizard.com/features.html
    May be able to run chkdsk from Hiren's boot CD. (mini xp.)
    Hiren's Boot CD, and do a chkdsk on the XP

    You can run this from Linux, but it only makes minor fixes and turns on the chkdsk flag so Windows has to run chkdsk.

    sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdXY # where X- drive Y - partition

    You have wubi which is a file inside Windows and uses the Windows boot loader. Better to have your own thread as only one or two know much about wubi. I think you need to use Windows and add the wubi entry back into the BCD with bcdEdit.

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

    Hi, i was directed here to fix my BOOTMGR missing problem while trying to install windows xp from a bootable usb. However the repair windows boot files option is greyed out. I also need to know if it is necessary to partition my hdd before installing xp or if the xp install will be able to do it without messing up my ubuntu install?

    Better to create a primary NTFS partition with the boot flag for XP to install into. Windows only boots from a primary partition with the boot flag.
    Windows also does not see Linux partitions and some installers rewrite partition table which may cause issues. You at the minimum would need an available primary partition and unallocated space for it to auto install.

    Windows normally expects to be the first partition, but will install to any primary sda1 thru sda4.

    You need to have good backups anytime you make system changes and should have backups anyway of any data you may think is important. Drives fail, systems crash and users make errors and then data may not be recoverable or difficult to recover.

    Use gparted from liveCD to make unallocated space, but what partitions have you already used? And how much space do you have. You need room for system to work well.

    Post this
    sudo parted -l
    df -h

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

    I have a SSD (sda) with w7 x64 installed first. Installed 13.04, / on SSD & /home, swap, /var, /tmp on secondary hdd. Initially, system would only boot into 13.04. Repaired nbr & then it would only boot windows. Booted into lilve cd, 13.04 x64, installed boot repair, ran, and recv'd an error saying to close update managers, etc. 5930726 was the file. I closed terminal, and ran again, 5930813 was that file. Each time tells me it errored out and rebooting only gets me to grub command line: grub>

    Here is my system.... I would like to get a grub screen showing both os's. Please help:
