    How to Post a Question
    1. Supply as much information as possible, including OS version, program version, if applicable, etc;
    2. If there was an error message, include the exact text (cut and paste if possible);
    3. If it "doesn't work" or "crashes", give details on what happened vs what you expected to happen;
    4. Ask the question, and make it as specific as possible;


    How Not to Post a Question
    1. Assume we know everything you've done in the past;
    2. Be as vague as possible; use terms like "tried all the steps" or "didn't work";
    3. Don't ask any questions, we can read your mind;
    4. Be brief - don't clutter your post with information about versions, etc

    Do not use as above instead
    Code:
    grub> find /boot/grub/stage1

    But it found grub.cfg - it was stage1 that it didn't find; this most likely means he has the newer "grub2", not the original grub. The newer one does not use stage 1 or stage2, but it does have grub.cfg.

    I don't know what the original poster was trying to do, so I can't offer any suggestions as to what should be done, except to point him to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Gr...ue%20to%20boot)

    i am sick of this reinstallation process.
    One thing, I had an iPod plugged in when I started my laptop and this caused error 22. Unplugged it and it
    worked fine.

    Re: How to install Grub from a live Ubuntu cd.

    Heyy!
    I'm new here!
    Ive just noticed this problem and ive been trying to fix it for the past few hours!

    First, i was trying to install drivers for my wireless card on my desktop pc, and it wasnt working, so i hooked it up via ethernet and i got connected.

    I then upgraged from 9.10 to 10.04LST, went through everything and rebooted.

    So post comes up and then it goes through boot process.

    Then i get;
    error: no such device: 2811e56f-c54a-4f61-8dd4-87b92691f594.
    grub rescue>

    This is a dual boot setup of Windows Vista and Ubuntu.
    I cant boot to vista, ive tried vista startup repair but nothing!
    I installed inside Windows using Wubi.

    If my system specs are needed ill post.

    Please help me!
    Thanks in advanced!
    Daniel =)

    EDIT; FIXED!
    Used this; http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...wto+bootloader

    I just linked this thread to another guy with a grub-legacy problem. Haven't used these commands for a long while.

    This Thread was linked for me back when I was just starting out and was a life saver then too.
