    New feature:

    Boot-Repair will show a warning when the boot partition (/ or /boot depending on the system) is far (currently >100GB) from the start of the disk.



    See this tread for more information.

    As usual, any feedback is welcome.

    Thanks for all your feedback!

    Some users told me this question could be confusing, so I removed the question, and changed it to an informative message added in the final zenity text.

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

    So. I have had a hell of a time trying to get ubuntu on this damn computer.

    I have a Gateway Mfatxpnt Ykt 500x P04 with no internal hard drive. Bios is set to boot from USB and usb configuration is set to read usb as hard disk. I have a seagate 120gb external drive that I am trying to use as my main hd. I have installed ubuntu several times. I have tried the boot repair to fix the out of disk error (worked) but new error: no such device <UUID> shows up. I have tried mounting and reinstalling grub with no success... I tried the repartitioning the boot to the front of the drive in a 1gb partition, but it failed half way through... I formated the drive, and am starting over. I am about to install Ubuntu on the drive, clean install on the 2nd partition (~119gb) leaving the 1st partition empty (to move the /boot to after install). Any ideas are greatly welcome.

    sincerely,
    one frustrated mother f*&$er

    Damn. So I saw this post after seeing the other post where you recommended the new /boot partition... hmmm so. Here is an update:

    I formatted my drive. clean. then did a fresh install from a live cd... then I got the out of disk error: as expected. So, I started up in the boot repair disk. I wanted to do one thing at a time... to narrow the problem down. so I did the repair with the ATA option checked.
    paste.ubuntu.com/1079157

    then, as expected, I got the error: no such device <UUID>
    But, I had read your response and ran boot repair disc again. this time I created a seperate partition for /boot (it is ~1gb and at the beginning of the drive.)

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1079183/

    It just finished, so I am going to reboot.... hopefully it works.

    Although I did not do this and rather clicked the advanced options and created a seperate partition for /boot... as per your suggestion... IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!! HUZZAH! praise the Ubuntu... things... Yannubuntu, you have saved ma life.

    for future reference:
    after the out of disk error:
    paste.ubuntu.com/1079157
    then the no such device <UUID> error
    paste.ubuntu.com/1079183
    Then viola!!! it works!

    Thanks Yannubuntu. is there a way to vote you into staff or something!?!? you're the best.

    @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.
    did not work ia ma afriad, now have machine, minus windows on its hard drive c + all lost files and D drive with installed 12.04 , does not work, dont even get the grub screen, just the little flashing cursor ;(
