    KegHead; Hi !

    Is grub installed to the hard drive ?
    Code:
    sudo debconf-show grub-pc
    sudo grub-probe -t device /boot/grub

    KegHead;

    Your debconf-show output is nothing like my working system output. I do not see this line as referenced from my system:
    * grub-pc/install_devices: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD5000ABYS-01TNA0_WD-WCAPW1463479
    Your grub-probe output also does not indicate grub installed anywhere (which begs the question, how in the world are you booting?).
    My output:
    sysop1@1204-a:~$ sudo grub-probe -t device /boot/grub
    /dev/sdc1
    Do you need guidance to install grub onto the hard drive ?

    That is one solution that is guaranteed to work !

    Please mark this thread as solved (thread tools) so other's time is not consumed with a solved situation.
