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

    back from holidays.

    @Smokin Whale: you're lucky

    @annnomius: thanks for your feedback.
    - i can't mark you as affected by bug#1024383, you need to login to Launchpad, then mark yourself affected.
    - 1. Boot-Repair scans for a long time on some (few) system, I don't know why. Some users even reported it lasted several hours. No idea why. Best thing is to wait until the man window appears.
    - 2. you are the 1st user to report this. No idea at the moment.
    - 3. Boot-Repair doesn't remove the old Windows entries. You can do it by hand if you want.

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

    Hello,

    I have a dual boot system with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 - both 64 bit. Windows is in the beginning of the disk and Ubuntu comes after it.

    Code:
    "blkid" output: ________________________________________________________________
    
    Device           UUID                                   TYPE       LABEL
    
    /dev/loop0                                              squashfs   
    /dev/sda1        01CBEA95730D28A0                       ntfs       PQSERVICE
    /dev/sda2        01CBEA95760F9330                       ntfs       SYSTEM RESERVED
    /dev/sda3        01CBEA9D4476C2F0                       ntfs       Acer #Windows
    /dev/sda5        98E8B14DE8B12A80                       ntfs       
    /dev/sda6        e3729117-b936-4c1d-9883-aee73dab6729   swap       
    /dev/sda7        1384cee0-6a71-4b83-b0d3-1338db925168   ext4       #Ubuntu
    The rest of the info on my disk is in the logs below.

    Yesterday I have moved and resized my partitions on my laptop and today I had a problem with booting to Ubuntu (12.04) so I decided to give Live USB (Ubuntu 12.04) a go. I checked and the disk is working fine. Then I have tried to repair the boot with boot-repair. First it allegedly fixed it but I was still unable to boot then I have decided to "repair the MBR" and I am now able to boot into Windows but I do not get the grub menu.

    What options should I choose to make my machine bootable to Ubuntu again ?

    Here are 2 of my boot - repair logs.

    The boot files of [Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS] are far from the start of the disk. Your BIOS may not detect them. You may want to retry after creating a /boot partition (EXT4, >200MB, start of the disk). This can be performed via tools such as gParted. Then select this partition via the [Separate /boot partition:] option of [Boot Repair]. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootPartition)
    Your partitioning is currently:

    Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
    1 9728B 14.0GB 14.0GB primary ntfs diag
    2 14.0GB 14.1GB 105MB primary ntfs boot
    3 14.1GB 119GB 105GB primary ntfs
    4 119GB 500GB 381GB extended lba
    5 119GB 470GB 352GB logical ntfs
    7 470GB 496GB 25.2GB logical ext4
    6 496GB 500GB 4467MB logical linux-swap(v1)
    I recommend you:
    1) Backup your documents
    2) via Gparted, format the sda1 partition into EXT4
    3) run Boot-Repair, click "Advanced options", go to the "GRUB location" tab, tick the "Separate /boot partition: sda1" option, apply.

    Thank you very much for the utility. I just used it to repair my in-laws computer. Very well done. Thanks again.

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

    thanks yannbuntu for your previous help .

    i have another question about another system of mine:
    i have a desktop system with 3 drives in it. the first (sda) has linux. the 2nd (sdb) used to have windows but now is just a vfat-based drive for shared storage. the 3rd (sdc) now has win7 (ntfs) on it.

    i used boot-repair to get the win7 disk recognized and in the grub menu. however, in the process i now have an entry for "windows 7" on sdb. if i choose this option, the system just stops at a blinking cursor. since i don't really have any windows on sdb, why is boot-repair (and also update-grub) saying windows is there?

    how do i fix the sdb disk so that it does not appear to have windows on it?

    thanks in advance

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

    But I can't even start Ubuntu.
    And if I use this install method in a LIVE CD it says ppa is not installed or something.
    How do I use this on a PC that CAN'T boot the OS?

    @Wer Bn: you can either add the PPA in a live-session , or directly use a CD (or liveUSB) with pre-installed Boot-Repair.
    See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bo...ng_Boot-Repair
