    Bug since yesterday: on UEFI systems, the "Recommended repair" installs grub-pc instead of grub-efi.

    So until this bug is solved: if you have a UEFI system, click "Advanced options --> GRUB location --> ticke the "Separate /boot/efi" option --> Apply.

    Dear all,

    in order to improve the compliance with Debian standards, i disabled the proposal to update the software at the startup of Boot-Repair.

    So from now, the update procedure becomes:

    1) if you had disabled the Boot-Repair PPA, enable it again
    2) connect internet, update your package list, remove boot-sav and install boot-repair:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get purge -y boot-sav; sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair
    Remark: the command is slightly different if you use Boot-Repair-Disk: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...9&postcount=46

    Hi, and thanks for this excellent wee program.

    So far, it has almost worked for my situation:
    I have Mint on one partition, Win Vista on another, and Win7 on another.
    I am presently only offered mint, win7 or 'recovery' where vista should be. The loader for win7 is on the partition holding Vista.

    The comprehensive boot-repair report is here:

    Can you please give me a few pointers, as I'm sure your program can provide a solution.

    Thanks in advance

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

    Your issue is with Windows.

    Windows only multi-boots thru the one primary NTFS partition with the boot flag or active partition in Windows.

    I believe Boot-Repair will copy bootmgr & the BCD to your other Windows install and then grub will have both as boot choices. But grub's os prober does not always identify version correctly and you may want to customize the entries.

    For details on Windows multi-Booting. Mostly Vista but Windows 7 (and 8) are really the same.

    Thousands indeed. Thanks. I'll try and work it out.
    Trying re-installing mint, now that win 7 and vista are already set up...
    If that doesn't work, I'll dig through the thousands...
