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

    I tried to install Boot Repair with the command on the start of this thread and during installation a popup appeared that said something like ( ) Yes No. I clicked Yes and now when I open Boot repair it just displays a couple of brackets as options and virtually no text. How do I fix/uninstall this?

    @SuperFreak: please see #529.
    The PPA is KO during ~6h.
    Meanwhile, you can use Boot-Repair (without updating it at startup) from Ubuntu-Secure or Boot-Repair-Disk.

    Do I need to uninstall it?

    Users need to have the current liveCD or repairCD/USB of every operating system they have installed. Whether Windows or Linux.

    Boot-Repair makes it easy to add a gui tool to their Ubuntu liveCD or USB and make repairs which many users prefer. And it can be downloaded as a full repair CD of its own.

    But that does not mean that knowledgeable users cannot have many repair tools in their toolbox. Puppy, Knoppix, gparted, Parted Magic, Supergrub all have a place and sometimes may work well for users who understand what they can do.

    I couldn't disagree more! This script gives a complete overview of exactly how the system is setup by stringing together and nicely outputting all of the most relevant and important information, and can diagnose a problem in just a few short minutes. I have yet to see a case where there was a problem with the configuration that was not clearly shown by the script. And, as an added bonus, the script will most of these problems without hassle. There is no better tool for diagnosing boot problems than this, hands down!

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

    Well I have to add my upgrade failure to the hat. I went from 9.10 to 12.04 (incrementally), and after the last reboot I get kicked out to the grub rescue prompt. I have tried everything posted on the subject (and learned a lot), but I am not getting anywhere. My OS drives are 2 disks in a RAID1 (mdadm) with a LV for root. What I have figured out is that I have a 250 mg partition on sda and sdb that's set as boot, set as RAID, but doesn't seem to have anything on it. The root partition comes up as an LV just fine (with the Live CD after loading the right modules).

    So the thing still doesn't boot... What's my next move? From my research I am thinking boot needs to be on the physical MBR, with GRUB pointing to that (sda and then sdb). Do I just blow away those 2 partitions and create new, bootable partitions, and then reinstall GRUB?

    Any help is greatly appriciated....

    AFAIK, upgrades often fail, breaking not only the bootloader but other system files too. In your case, the risk was multiplicated as you did several consecutive upgrades.
    If i were you, i would now burn a 12.04.1 liveCD and fix your broken system this way: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuReinstallation
