    Re: need some phone help

    During installation of Mint HD partitions were set as follows:
    /dev/hda THIS IS WDC1000
    /dev/hda1 ext3
    /dev/hda2 swap
    /dev/hda3 fat32

    /dev/sda THIS IS WDC2500
    /dev/sda1 ext3
    /dev/sda3 swap
    /dev/sda5 fat32

    /dev/sdb THIS IS WDC1600
    /dev/sdb1 ntfs
    /dev/sdb5 fat32

    Re: need some phone help

    The first thing you have to do is decide which grub you are going to use - the one installed by Mint or the one installed by Ubuntu. You have posted the menu.lst from the Unbuntu installation which from your earlier description of your boot menu is not the one you are using.

    If you want to find out why your Mint is not loading then posting your menu.lst from your Mint installation would be a good idea.

    To get a menu entry for Windows you will have to add something like the following to the bottom of your menu.lst file:
    Code:
    title Microsoft Windows
    root (hd2,0)
    savedefault
    makeactive
    map (hd0) (hd2)
    map (hd2) (hd0)
    chainloader +1
    This assumes that Windows is on disk 3. Make sure you edit the correct menu.lst file. There is a file called /boot/grub/device.map where you can check your device mappings.

    1. Re runing /boot/grub/menu.lst how do I do this I can't get Mint started?
    2. Would it be a good idea to delete grub from one of the OS?
    3. Can I do something with MBR?
    4. Would reinstalling Mint do anything to help my problem?

    1. Re runing /boot/grub/menu.lst how do I do this I can't get Mint started?
    You will need to mount the Mint partition in Ubuntu. The fdisk command will show you the partitions. Then mount it with something like:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /mnt/Mint
    sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/Mint
    2. Would it be a good idea to delete grub from one of the OS?
    You can very easily re-install grub - link. In your case the find /boot/grub/stage1 command should list two partitions (Mint and Ubuntu).

    3. Can I do something with MBR?
    You will want grub installed in the MBR of the first drive. setup (hd0) in the link does this.

    4. Would reinstalling Mint do anything to help my problem?
    Yes, it might even fix everything. It should install its copy of grub in the MBR of the first drive. Hopefully it will then detect the other two OS and add entries for them.

    fdisk: invalid option -- 1
    You need a lowercase "L" rather than the number "1".

    I think the situation is clear now.

    If you boot to your PATA drive you get the Mint grub (which you haven't posted yet) which lists Mint and Ubuntu but the Mint option fails.

    If you boot to your Windows partition I assume it boots to Windows OK.

    What happens if you put your ubuntu drive first in the boot sequence? The ubuntu grub entry looks good for booting to ubuntu with ubuntu being on the first drive. If the ubuntu grub was installed to the MBR of its disk you should see 3 ubuntu options + 1 windows option (which won't work).

    Re: need some phone help

    WinXP works ok if i make the boot drive. Ubuntu works ok if i make it the boot drive.

    Below are a Ubuntu and Mint grub lst. Last nite I reinstalled Mint and everything worked great except no WinXP. This morning Ubuntu said I needed a proprietary viedo
    driver I said do it that was the end of Ubuntu screen goes BLACK when trying to reboot.
    This is the same thing that Mint was doing before I reinstalled it . Maybe I should start all over
    ie reinstall both Ubuntu and Mint and have the 3 drives working plus have the boot sequence
    setup properly !! ??. And don't install any proprietary drivers? When i reinstalled Mint i made it root ie /, and i made the ntfs /Windows all the rest i left as/media/!!. What do thoes # signs mean in the grub lst?

    Re: need some phone help

    To fix your new problem with the video drivers, boot to recovery mode and run the following:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
    It should give you a working video configuration.

    When you have a working video configuration it is a good idea to make a backup of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
    When you make Ubuntu the boot drive you should see the 3 Ubuntu kernels plus a non-working Windows option. The grub entry for Windows on this partition is pointing to a Windows on an extended logical drive on the same disk as Ubuntu, which from what you have said is not where it is installed.

    When you make Mint the boot drive you see the Mint options plus the Ubuntu ones (which work?) and 2 Windows options: Windows NT/2000/XP and Microsoft Windows XP Professional. The Windows NT/2000/XP is pointing to the extended logical drive on the same disk as Ubuntu and so will not work. The Microsoft Windows XP Professional option is pointing to a Windows installation on disk 3, which is where it should be. I'm not sure why this doesn't work.

    Is your objective to get to the stage where you don't have to change the drive boot sequence and have all 3 OS on a grub menu?

    Re: need some phone help

    I would like to have all 3OS on agrub menu.I could reinstall Ubuntu/Mint if that is the best solution. I do have a couple of prog. on Ubuntu that i would like to save but because of the viedo prob. I may have to reinstall any way.

    This is what I did this morning, booted to Ubuntu recovery mode and got a screen called “Recovery Mode Menu” I selected “drop to root shell prompt”
    root@bill-desktop:~#. I then typed “sudo dpkg-reconfigure phigh xserver-xorg. The results were “Package `phigh' is not installed and no information is avaible.
    Use sudo dpkg –-info (=dpkg-deb –info) to examine archive files, use sudo dpkg –contents (=dpkg-deb –contents) to list thier contents, use sudo /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: phigh is not installed. The response I got from these commands were syntax error near unexpected token `('.
    Since I know very little about Linux and it's commands I qiut while I was ahead. Wat do thoes # signs mean in the grub lst?

    Re: need some phone help

    Yesterday 6/17 I reinstalled Mint and had the drive sequence set properly ie dvd,2500,1600. After inst. I ran
    the grub lst as showen below. Next I added the # sign in the 2 entries for WinXP that I think are wrong?
    This did nothing to help my problem, both Mint and Ubuntu run just fine but no mention of Win?


    # menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
    # grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
    # grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
    # and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.

    ## default num
    # Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
    # the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
    default 0

    gfxmenu=/etc/grub/message.mint

    ## timeout sec
    # Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
    # (normally the first entry defined).
    timeout 10
