    Re: 12.04 Install Issue

    Ok, on /dev/sda, the 1TB disk, you seem to have:
    12.04 LTS on sda1
    10.04.2 LTS on sda6

    On /dev/sdc, the 20GB disk, you seem to have:
    10.04.2 LTS on sdc1
    12.04 LTS on sdc6

    Which one of these you want to use as a main OS?

    Even before you answer, here is what I would do:
    Boot into live mode and in terminal:
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
    sudo umount /mnt
    sudo mount /dev/sdc6 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sdc
    That will install grub2 on the MBR of the 1TB disk which is connected to your 12.04 install on the same disk, and grub2 on the MBR of the 20GB disk which is connected to the 12.04 install on that disk.

    With the setting in BIOS which hdd to be the first option to boot, you control which grub2 shows up. In any case, any grub2 will be able to boot all your OSs. It depends if you want all of them to be in the boot menu because with four OSs present, the boot menu will be rather large.

    Due to hardware limitations; I have to go with the 1TB drive (the 20GB is a relic of days gone by) as for which I want to be my main OS ... I'm going with 12.04 on that disk.

    And I have already put in the code up there, no errors reported.

    OK, so if you reboot and have the 1TB disk as first option to boot, from what happens? And make sure it's the correct 1TB disk because you have two of them and the other has a broken grub1 on it.
