    Errors reinstalling 14.04, dual boot with XP

    An XP refugee and noob, I've just installed Trusty on 3 older Thinkpads (sole OS on an T60, and dual boot on two X60s). I did my research best I could, and have really enjoyed the process. Solving all the little problems that have come up - learning a lot. My data is well backed up, so I have the luxury of making mistakes ... and I'm makin' em.

    One of the X60s showed serious boot problems (excruciatingly long boot time) and persistent slowness / freezes. If I were more knowledgeable, I'd probably have known how to do diagnostics, etc... but I didn't have the time or patience to learn this right now. So I reinstalled Trusty from the disc, making no changes in partitions.

    I imagined that the NTFS partition would remain unchanged, that a reinstall "into" the original ubuntu partition would preserve my documents and most of my installed software, while reverting all settings to default.

    What I found (and this may not be news to non-noobs) was that the initial install was not overwritten; rather, all extant files were given a separate 28 GB partition. And *another* partition was created for the new install. So I now have two 'Computer' directories (bin, boot...var). This was not clear to me in the diagram presenting the partitions via the install disc.

    (a) is there any disadvantage to using GParted to delete the partitions containing the original install? There is nothing there that I need, and I'd prefer to have a 55 contiguous GB for Trusty. Clearly, I'd have to read up on partitions... (b) is the version of GParted available from the Software Center sufficient? (I have downloaded the ISO, but don't have a cd burner at the moment).

    Thanks!

    You usually cannot use a gparted on your working system as you have partitions mounted. I do install it but only work on another drive.
    You need to use a Live installer. It was on what ever installer you used if Ubuntu, not sure about all flavors.

    But if you still have your live installer that will work.
    You also may have to click on swap and right click swap off. Installer in live mode likes to mount swap if found to speed things up a bit. And swap is often in the extended partition which in effect mounts the entire extended partition.

    I generally do not like moving partitions left. It is slow as all data must be copied. And any interruption will totally corrupt data.

    Be glad you do not have a new UEFI system. Reinstall on those just shows Ubuntu and users think they are overwriting just Ubuntu when the entire drive is overwritten. Not sure if Ubuntu installer, or user, but may be related to Windows 8 always in hibernation mode, so installer does not see it correctly.

    Make sure you delete correct partition. Both installs probably used same swap.

    Grub probably also includes old install. Second install should be the one in grub, so you do not have to update grub in MBR first. But it does not hurt to boot into install you want to keep and run this:

    From inside your working install to have its grub boot loader in MBR of sda.
    sudo grub-install /dev/sda

    After deleting older install. Boot back into working install and run this to remove old installs grub entry.
    sudo update-grub

    Re: newbie's errors reinstalling 14.04, dual boot with XP

    Thanks so much, oldfred!

    Does it make sense to delete all entries in old install (usr....var) before proceeding? I'd do it via GUI.

    I'm not sure that the live cd gave the option of deleting a partition ... but I'll have a look. I had installed GParted via Software Center, and ... GParted made it look suspiciously easy to do...

    (Fortunately, as I said ... I can afford to mess up. Everything is backed up.)

    I'm going to read up on partitions ...but does deleting the Install #1 'partition wall' adjacent to new install automatically create the larger partition I'd wanted? Or are there no 'walls?' I guess I'm saying: how do I conceptualize a 'partition'? (I shouldn't be asking you to do my homework...)

    Yeah, I'm kind of clueless. Thanks so much for your help.

    I think the only auto partitioning change is the older auto install side by side. But any auto change has always scared me, so I use gparted in advance for all my installs and then use Something Else to choose partition mount and format. And I have managed to screw that up, by making several partitions, small for root and large for data and then forgetting which is which and installing to the large partition.
    Deleting a partition does not auto adjust other partitions. You have to manually move them around. And if one is primary and the other logical you may also have to resize the extended partition first. It become the old slide puzzle game. With gparted also do not queue events, but process each change, so you know that it completes before starting anther.

    Re: newbie's errors reinstalling 14.04, dual boot with XP

    So far in the Linuxsphere, I've never made a mistake so big I couldn't recover from it ... but I think I've now blown it.

    Using the Mini-Tool (Partition Wizard) on the installer cd, I went ahead and deleted what I ... am certain was the correct partition (before seeing oldfred's reply ... though I'm such an idiot, I don't think it would have helped me). But - clearly, I didn't do enough homework, and Grub Rescue is my reward. Can't boot. Now the 28GB apportioned to the original install is 'unallocated' (and, according to the ubuntu installer, 'unusable')

    The only good thing is that - my data's all backed up.

    I began to resize the partition on the 23GB allocated to the second install - I'd want to merge it with the 28GB of unallocated space - but I know I don't know what I'm doing. How to rescue myself?

    Thanks for your patience...!

    Re: newbie's errors reinstalling 14.04, dual boot with XP

    small update - repaired MBR so I could boot into XP, made a series of other mistakes using the Partition Wizard Mini-Tool (I wish my install CD had come with GParted ...not that great software can stop me from making a mess) again unable to boot into either XP or Ubuntu. Back to the installer disc.

    Extended NTFS partition to cover the unallocated space...booted with installer disc, and installed Boot Repair to boot back into Trusty.

    Whew! I hate learning the hard way, but it seems to be the only way I learn.

    Now I'm unable to boot into XP (and also would want to shrink the XP partition with GParted, once I have it).

    My question now: how to boot into XP without messing up boot into Ubuntu?

    Any resize of a Windows NTFS partition required a chkdsk before it will boot again. You only can run chkdsk from a Windows repair CD or the XP installer.
    Best to use Windows tools on Windows but only Linux tools with Linux.

    Gparted is on the Ubuntu installer. Not sure about other flavors you easy to install if booted in live mode as it is in repository. Also you can download a gparted liveCD or Parted Magic liveCD.

    Thanks so much, oldfred. The current status is: (not knowing I had to use chkdsk) I used Gparted to resize XP and Ubuntu partitions to where I want them; I can now boot into Ubuntu fine, but still can't boot into XP (no surprise). I did run bootinfo, and have a RESULTS.txt - is it ok to post this super-long thing? (I'm in the process of burning Boot-Repair iso to disc and running this.)

    Thanks for your ... patience. (!)

    yes it is allowed just wrap it in code tags (the # icon)


    by the way - you are needlesly complicating a very simple install.
