    Strange. The grub2 on the MBR is pointed to a totally different location. Boot into live mode and in terminal try:

    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
    Restart and see if that helped.
    Darko.

    Re: I can't make partitions.

    I have the same problem.
    I'm currently running Windows 7 64bit.
    I want to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu, but I cannot install Ubuntu.

    Here's the details:

    1. Ubuntu installation cannot detect any partitions.
    2. GParted cannot detect any partitions.
    ---- GParted has an error "Can't have overlapping partitions."
    3. fdisk -l <-- It shows my partitions

    My guess is either:
    there's some problem with my HDD
    or Ubuntu (11.10) cannot detect HDD with many partitions (partitions with different sorts of filesystem).
    I'm suspecting the latter.

    And please take a look at the screenshot.
    It shows what I'm saying very clearly.

    @genyue
    Please do not hijack someone else's thread. It sounds like if you have overlapping partitions you have a partition table error. Almost any systems that read partition table will not work until it is fixed.
    Better to post terminal output than screen shot as I cannot make out details in fdisk. Use sudo fdisk -lu and post in new thread.

    No, it works in live mode without installing anything. The command is included on the cd.

    Re: I can't make partitions.

    Shrink those Windows partitions to free up space on your HD.

    • Then use your Ubuntu CD as a "live OS", and use the disk partitioner that is on the CD.
    • Alternative is to download SystemRescueDisk, and run as "live OS", use the application GParted on SysResDK.
