Hi guys, I'm new here, so please forgive me for any errors.
I have been using Ubuntu 32-bit on my PC since 12.04 LTS, so I have a reasonable understanding of the system.
I have set up a multi boot system on my laptop, here's the details;
3 flavors of windows (xp 32 bit, 7 64 bit, and 8 64 bit) all being loaded by windows' default loader.
fedora 18 64 bit
ubuntu 12-10 64 bit.
Grub2 sees the windows loader (one grub entry), so windows versions loads via chain loading.
After installing fedora 18 fedora and the windows loader showed up in GRUB
After installing ubuntu 12-10, fedora disappeared from grub, however windows boot loader is still fine.
My problem is getting fedora 18 back into grub so I can boot into fedora.
I have tried
also, I have tried Boot-Repair;
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && (sudo boot-repair &)
and used the advanced repair.
Last, I tried linux-secure-12.10-64bit.iso
I have come to the conclusion that I need to manually edit grub and insert the fedora boot into the grub file.
My problem is now which file to edit and what to edit in it. Any examples would be most helpful, so it can help me edit my file.
Can you start by point out which file I need to edit?
I found these files:
/boot/grub/grub.cfg but it said DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
and this folder:
which has the file README; which says;
The number namespace in-between is configurable by system installer and/or
administrator. For example, you can add an entry to boot another OS as
01_otheros, 11_otheros, etc, depending on the position you want it to occupy in
the menu; and then adjust the default setting via /etc/default/grub.
This is exactly what I want to do, but I have no idea what to do.
Please help me.
