    Ringtail boot issue

    Ok so I ended up simplifying and wiped my hard drive and I just have 4 partitions now. I installed Ringtail fresh and when the grub screen comes up there is no Ubuntu option? There is a Mem test instead. Opensuse is there along with Windows 8 but no way to boot Ubuntu.
    Any Ideas????

    I have used boot repair< no help, probably just a tweak in the ISO I pulled down. No biggy, I have already installed 12.10 and maybe I will just change the repos. Thanks.

    Re: Ringtail boot issue

    It almost looks like grub didn't get installed to the right place. You can chroot the / partition on your Raring install, and re-install grub correctly. Use the following commands to chroot your root partition:

    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sdxX /mnt
    sudo mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys
    sudo mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev
    sudo mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc
    sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/etc/resolv.conf
    sudo chroot /mnt
    /dev/sdxX = / on your Raring install

    I've added a command to copy /etc/resolv.conf to your chroot, in case you need internet access to download the grub packages.

    Once you've chrooted / issue the following commands:

    Code:
    grub-install /dev/sdx
    and then:

    Code:
    update-grub
    After running update-grub, you should see a listing of all the different versions you have installed.

    Note: You don't need sudo for the last two commands, as you are running with elevated privileges.
