    If you see someone with this error, tell him/her to use Boot-Repair-Disk or Ubuntu-Secure-Remix, WITHOUT UPDATING the software from PPA.
    This should be fixed in the PPA now (package boot-sav >= 3.19-0ppa42).

    Thanks to Chris and all people who helped.

    For information, I updated yesterday the ISOs containing Boot-Repair:
    - Boot-Repair-Disk
    - and Ubuntu-Secure-Remix.

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

    @all helpers:

    I sometimes see people using grub-install twice, for example:

    Code:
    grub-install /dev/sda
    grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
    - Why not using "grub-install --recheck /dev/sda" only?
    - Are there cases where "--recheck" must NOT be used?

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

    Hi
    had a failed update of 11.04 to 11.1,
    have a win xp primary drive on sda and a separate drive for linux on sbd.

    after failure , did load to a grub screen with access to win xp but clicking on linux got the "black screen".

    ran boot repair after booting from live cd

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1069000/

    then still no ubuntu access, but windows worked.

    tried again last night with boot repair with "recommend" options.
    (the c drive has wubi on as well)

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1075580/

    now lost the ability to boot into windows or linux( except via live cd)

    getting into deeper water.

    Mark

    now loads to a grub screen, but has lost

    @helpers: None of us know about the --recheck question, so I will ask to GRUB devs. I'll keep you in touch.

    @markwestwood: a failed upgrade results in broken/missing system files. This can be difficult/long to repair via command lines (dpkg, distupgrade..), so I would simply burn a 12.04 CD and reset the system files this way. If any problem, please create a new thread here and tell us the link.

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

    I installed wubi on a win7 pc a few days ago and after installing samba it will no longer boot into ubuntu. At first I only got a purple screen with the dots on it. Then I ran chkdsk in windows and now when I try to boot ubuntu I get a grub prompt. Will your CD help me? I want get some files off this install.
    Thank you.

    In think so: Boot-Repair will try to mount the Wubi filesystem, and open it in a file browser so that you can recover and backup your files

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

    It appeared to do all of that, but it came up blank. In windows it says that rootdisc = 0KB. I'm afraid that means that I've lost it all.
    The boot repair disc worked well though.

    Any ideas of a program I could run to try to salvage any of the lost files?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    For standard Ubuntu install (=non-Wubi), I know that TestDisk is good to recover lost files. But for Wubi install I'm not sure if it can help.
