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

    There are some that you placed ie.. grub.cfg that are blank yet they exist and are in the appropriate boot folders and some that you placed that are not blank, would this information be helpful to you and would the resulting grub.cfg's original and yours as comparisons be useful to you?

    I know my setup is rather complex, but that always helps in catching things that you would not otherwise encounter in basic scenario's.

    Please let me know.


    I am going to reboot now, just to check things out.

    I am back

    Reboot went fine, everything is AOK!

    Please explain, what will happen if I remove these?

    Every MBR backups folder is empty, should this be the case??


    Now this may or may not make a difference to why the output is as it is

    I just compiled the Linux 3.0 kernel yesterday

    jason@UbuntuStudio64bit:~$ uname -a
    Linux UbuntuStudio64bit 3.0.0 #2 SMP Fri Jul 22 20:02:30 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    see screenshot also


    But I never ran update-grub, which I don't need to because of the GRUBBOOT partition, does this have an effect on system variables that your software has access to and by my not having ran update-grub as was required have an impact on the software??

    Thanks for the feedback. Please send me again a TAR.GZ of your /var/log/clean folder, so that I can see the logs.

    Does Boot-Repair v3 work when you reinstall GRUB in an OS without separate /boot ?
    Does Boot-Repair v3 work when you reinstall GRUB in the MBR (e.g. not sda6, but sda) ?

    Screenshot #5 of post #49 shows that error and Which var/log/clean folder do you want, the one that I ran it on or all of them, it placed it in all the installed os's some were blank as I stated in a previous post.

    I will try sda after I am done with the Gparted resize I doing right now.

    Boot-Repair should create no blank file. If it happens that is a bug that we need to solve, please indicate me the localization of the files that are blanked.

    You are right, your config is perfect to debug

    Perfect !

    In your particular case, nothing. The (/var/log)/clean contains logs and all necessary backups (MBR, grub files..) in case we need to debug, or in case Boot-Repair bugs for example.
    And for users who installed a distro containing Clean-Ubiquity, there can be also, in the /clean/mbr_backups folder, a special MBR backup (linked to the UUID of the installed distro) that can be restored via Boot-Repair and/or OS-Uninstaller.

    Quote Originally Posted by JASONFUSARO View Post

    Yes it is normal, because you did not use Clean-Ubiquity, so your Vista MBR is definitely lost (erased the first time you installed GRUB).

    This won't have any impact on Boot-Repair.

    Boot-Repair automatically runs update-grub after reinstalling GRUB.

    Can you detail what is your "GRUBBOOT partition", and how you use it ? which distro use it ?
    I understood it was just a separate /boot partition for your UbuntuStudio (only, not for any other OS), but I am not sure...

    Did you receive the clean.tar.gz files I emailed

    I set it up as per instructions in this link

    http://members.iinet.net/~herman546/p20/GRUB2%20Bash%20Commands.html


    it is not tied to any Distro in particular so it can be modified and changed at will, and no update-grub executed in any other distro has an effect on it, I simply transfer the menu entry into it.

    here is my copy which is on parition #2 and is formated as fat the partition Label is GRUBBOOT

    #insmod part_gpt

    Does Boot-Repair v3 work when you reinstall GRUB in the MBR (e.g. not sda6, but sda) ?
    I ran it again and selected the windows MBR view attached screenshot


    and the result of that was the following, I am posting all my steps in the hopes of maybe helping others, hopefully it does not make it more confusing?

    Well if you look at the screenshot I selected MBR but that only booted me straight into windows no boot menu at all. Now I had some work to do! Luckily I had made a Grub2 USB some time back but the menu did not coincide with my current setup all the partitions were wrong, because I have been changing things around alot to get a feel fro the system. Luckily it was set with UUID's so Ubuntu booted and I decided to fix the USB to coincide with my current setup, but that ran me into another problem becuase I missed a step and since I was running UbuntuStudio wich I upgraded to Grub2 did not get added to the grub.cfg. so when I rebooted I had a kernel panic! Now I could not get into anything that had Grub2 upgrade and could not fix it, CtkArch has a problem with pacman etc...etc.. Finally ran a Live CD and got back a menu, but it was not current, and your software renamed boot to oldboot so I had to rename it after deleting the one your software created. Now once I was able to boot back into my menu I decided to update the GrubBoot USB to make it current:
    Code:
    After I could not get back into grub menu
    
    I put a Grub2 USB I had made

    I then put grub on the USB's MBR
    
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/GrubBoot /dev/sdb
    Installation finished. No error reported.
    
    
    wrote grub.cfg to the USB

    Now I am back where I started, I tested the USB boot and that is ok now.


    Boot-Repair should create no blank file. If it happens that is a bug that we need to solve, please indicate me the localization of the files that are blanked.
    You should have them in the tars that I sent. But again I am doing things in a non standard way I believe and this may be the culprit??

    I hope this is not to confusing?

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

    Thanks a lot for your feedback!
    In the last screenshot, you chose to restore a generic MBR that boots Vista directly. Looks like it worked

    I just uploaded a new version (v3 Beta3) on ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair-dev

    - corrects separate /boot detection
    - takes into account FAT restrictions (no case sensitive)
    - takes into account mounting points with spaces
    - corrects /cdrom detection which led to bug when reinstalling into current os

    Please can you check that this new version :
    - does not rename your /boot folder into /oldbooot
    - reinstalls GRUB correctly whatever the place you choose and the "OS to boot by default " you choose

    --> and like usual, please send me a TAR of your /clean folder

    If you notice a difference of partitions in the interim I have gotten rid of woof and shared and added Zenwalk and FusionLinux I have not installed anything to them yet but plan to for the software design capabilities, but I have not changed nor deleted any of the var/log/clean/log or var/log/clean/mbr_backups folders your software has created. And all var/log/clean/log folders contain 3 folders for the three seperate runs I performed.
    you don't need this if you received the last tar I emailed you, which I don't know?

    I just uploaded a new version (v3 Beta3) on ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair-dev

    - corrects separate /boot detection
    - takes into account FAT restrictions (no case sensitive)
    - takes into account mounting points with spaces
    - corrects /cdrom detection which led to bug when reinstalling into current os

    Please can you check that this new version :
    - does not rename your /boot folder into /oldbooot
    - reinstalls GRUB correctly whatever the place you choose and the "OS to boot by default " you choose

    --> and like usual, please send me a TAR of your /clean folder

    I just dowloaded it but nowhere does it specify version info which would be helpful.
