    Good work. This stuff should be added to the standard release.I used boot-repair to make a partition bootable (using "force" option). Worked fine.If it could convert a logical partition to a primary partition (I did this manually ), that would be magic.

    Hi Luke,
    Sorry I don't have such "super-powers" but next Boot-repair release (which is in alpha stage now) will get new options.. keep in touch ...

    (just for my information) you mean you installed GRUB in the partition of your Ubuntu, in order to chainload it from another bootloader ?

    Boot-Repair is already included in several derivatives of Ubuntu : Linux Hybryde, Voyager OS ... if you need a Ubuntu CD with Boot-Repair, I recommand you use Ubuntu Secured (which is simply Ubuntu + 3 little tools including Boot-Repair)

    Yes. The ubuntu install did not give me grub, even though I used the proper option. It was a logical partition, could that be why it didn't install? Logical partitions are not normally bootable (with standard MBR code), but they could be bootable using some other tools.

    Normally GRUB should have detected your OS even on a logical partition. If not, this is a bug that you should report to GRUB developpers.
    For my information, which other bootloader did you use to chainload GRUB ?

    Plop boot manager. Alternatively, with the partition as primary I can boot direct with standard MBR. I prefer to have everything inside the partition.

    Just installed it and ran it to check it out but I got this

    There is no boot backup on this computer.
    This will reinstall GRUB bootloader.
    Do you want to continue?


    and I chose not to continue, because I am not sure what the next screen would be or what would take place, if it would create an environment that no longer worked, that has been working.


    What would have happened had I chose to continue???

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

    Does boot-repair create a directory named clean? Assuming the answer is yes, I don't like the fact that it wrote to a non-installation partition, and also used a filename which is illegal in Windows (contains a colon) - so it can't be viewed or deleted. Is this intentional or a bug?
