I have an old PC/server that was running Ubuntu 8.04 server on it. When I turned it on after it was shut down last time, it said something about the BIOS being corrupted and had to be reset to factory defaults. After doing so, I started getting the "Grub error 18" error message and spent last 2 days trying to figure out how to fix it. I found the link to the boot repair tool and tried using it, but I keep getting the message "Please close all your package managers (Software Center, Update Manager, Synaptic, ...). Then try again.", and I have no idea why and/or how to get past it. Here is the link to the Bootinfo Summary generated by the tool:
I'm completely lost at this point and have no idea what else to try. This server was running our search engine/database, so I would really hate losing all of it and having to reinstall the OS and everything else. Does anyone have any ideas on what else I could try to get this box up and running again?
