I have just updated to ver 20 and Ubuntu does not boot in ver 20 from MBR. It works OK when I boot it from ver 19. How do I fix this problem?
Boot into ver 19, open a terminal and post the output to
Also, can you tell us more detail about what happens when you try to boot ver 20? Do you see a GRUB error?Code:sudo fdisk -l cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
I have followed the instruction but I still have the problem. When I start my computer and select either ver 20 or ver 19, I have the following message:-
[0.000000]ACPI:BIOS age (1999) fails cutoff (2000), acpi=force is required to enable ACPI
In ver 19, I will see "Loading please wait". But in ver 20, nothing happens to the computer.
ver .20 is messed up right now, just continue using .19 until a fix comes down in updates.
If it really bothers you uninstall ver .20 kernel grub will re-write itself.
You may want to disable the proposed repositories until this is fixed.
Castles Made of Sand,
Fall in the Sea,
Thanks. Can I delete ver 20 ref from the MBR?
I used supergrub which works so so but it keeps defaulting to discs 1 and 2 instead of 0 and 1. At least I can get into Ubuntu now.
tallpaul66, (hd0,1) means the first drive, second partition. The 0 in (hd0,1) means the first drive, and the 1 in (hd0,1) means the second partition. GRUB starts numbering at 0.
So (hd0,1) is GRUB-talk for /dev/sda2.
Similarly, (hd1,2) is /dev/sdb3, the second drive, third partition.
Perhaps try Catlett's instructions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...95&postcount=1
