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

    Hi Yannbuntu, thank you for replying. I've tried it like you said (first with the SecureBoot option ticked in boot-repair and then enabled in bios)

    When I click Windows 8 in the menu i get this screen:



    When I try again i get this one:

    Sorry for the lateness. Boot-repair did the job just fine. The only problem is that downloading around 335mb on 256kb connection might take for ever. May be it should be installed in every release.
    Thanks

    @Shipoopi: please check if you can boot from the WIndows entry in your BIOS.

    @Jean Noel: if you have an Ubuntu disk, you can simply boot on it, choose "Try Ubuntu", then install and run Boot-Repair from the live-session, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bo...pair_in_Ubuntu

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

    Hello, I was trying to install Lubuntu 12.04 I believe was the version, and when it was close to finished it came up with a message that said that it had failed to install grub! I installed and ran boot repair with the default settings and it gave me this URL to post in a help thread. http://paste.ubuntu.com/5656804/

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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

    You seem to have some partitioning issues on sda, your 3TB drive. For future info, what partition tool did you use. I have seen issues with Windows & Disk Utility, but not gdisk or gparted.

    /dev/sda2 overlaps with /dev/sda3
    /dev/sda2 overlaps with /dev/sda5
    sda4: _____________________

    File system: ntfs
    Boot sector type: Windows 7/2008: NTFS
    Boot sector info: The info in boot sector on the starting sector of the
    MFT is wrong. The info in the boot sector on the
    starting sector of the MFT Mirror is wrong. According
    to the info in the boot sector, sda4 has 1457035144
    sectors, but according to the info from fdisk, it has
    -1764190316 sectors.
    Operating System:
    Boot files
    Since partitions overlap it is hard to know how to fix things. Which sectors really belong to which partition or is data really belong in the other partition. If you have data you really need to backup as any fixes may not work.

    After partitions are fixed, you need to run chkdsk on the NTFS partition. Its PBR - partition boot sector even if not booting has to have correct partition size info in it. chkdsk should fix that.

    Install gdisk and see what it says about your sda.
    sudo apt-get install gdisk
    repair gpt:

    You may want to consider totally repartitioning as you do not have drive correctly aligned.

    First, understand that most partitioning tools have moved to a policy of aligning partitions on 1 MiB (2048-sector) boundaries as a way of improving performance with some types of arrays and some types of new hard disks (those with 4096-byte physical sectors). See article by srs5694:

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

    I believe the original partioning was done with the windows partition tool.

    I believe I'm going to repartition over the weekend. I wasn't expecting it to be this serious of a problem and since there is a sold benefit to be gained through completely redoing the partitioning,it should be worth it. Thank you for helping to identify my problem! I appreciate the help!

    EDIT:
    Well in case I still have a chance here are my results from gdisk

    The gdisk output looks ok? Did it restore data from gpt backup? One of the advantages of gpt is that it has a backup partition table.

    It didn't say it had done anything of the sort. I took that data after I ran the b command but before I ran v. I was a little thrown by the fact that it appeared to have no overlaps.

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

    Hello everyone!
    I was playing arround with grub customizer on my dual boot laptop (win7/ubuntu 12.10) and i was firstly wanted to change the time that grub gives you in order to choose the OS , i changed that from 30s to 250s and all was fine.Then i wanted to change the backrgroung image of grub , after placing one of my own i noticed that the grub didn't have the image then .Then i went again to grub customizer to change the resolution(i thought that it was resolution problem). After i changed the resolution to something 1024x768x24 and reboot then the grub stucked, the only thing now after starting my pc is a black lighted screen.I tried boot repair but nothing happend.

    Here is the the paste that boot repair gave to me:
