View Full Version : [ubuntu] No boot entry after install on Windows systems

I've tried intalling ubuntu on two different drives on the same computer, and on my laptop. I chose an Ext3 partation and told it to format it. While I created the partition first in Parition Magic once, then with Paragon, but each time I let the installer repartition and format the drives. The last time, in desperation, I told it to format the whole drive using the guided mode.

While the install says it has completed, when I reboot all I see are the Windows installations. The drive that has the first installation of ubuntu also has the swap and Ext3 partitions on it as well as an NTFS partition.

Do I need to run some sort of linux specific boot manager separately to modify the MBR of my drive before I can use Ubuntu?

The Ubuntu installer should install GRUB (the bootloader) at the end of the installation procedure.

Thanks for the reply. So as there seems to be a problem, what should I do to see what happened to interfere with the proper functioning of GRUB each time I try to install on this computer?

Try installing grub from the live cd...
Insert the Live Cd and fire up a terminal
type sudo grub...
and then type "find /boot/grub/stage1"

You get sumthin like (hd0,x)
then type root (hd0,x)
followed by setup (hd0)
U should be done with

TSellers, in order to get a clearer picture of your setup, how about booting your Live CD (the Ubuntu install CD), open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and do:

cd ~/Desktop && wget 'http://home.comcast.net/~ubuntu_grub/boot_info_script.txt' && sudo bash boot_info_script.txt
That will create a "RESULTS.txt" file in the same directory from where the script is run, namely your desktop; please copy/paste the contents of that file to your next post, highlight the copied text, and click the pound sign # graphic in the Ubuntu forum message box so that the text will get "code" tags put around it. If you don't have internet connectivity when using the Live CD, you can instead right-click this link (http://home.comcast.net/~ubuntu_grub/boot_info_script.txt) to the script in your web browser, choose "Save link as...", save the "boot_info_script.txt" file, transfer it to your Ubuntu desktop on the Live CD via USB stick, floppy, or however you want to do it, and then do the following in a terminal:

sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script.txt
The results of that script will help clarify your setup and hopefully what your problem might be.

THanks to both for replies.

1: I tried the first suggestion. I got messages as noted by Kranny, everything went as noted and I got a message I believe something like "success". However when I rebooted, still nothing appears in the boot menu.

2: Moved on to next post:

It looks like your Ubuntu 40 GB sdc drive should be be ready to boot Ubuntu just fine. One small detail that might prevent it though is none of the partitions on the sdc drive are marked as bootable, and some BIOSes won't boot a drive that doesn't have one partition marked as bootable. So I would suggest first doing:

sudo sfdisk -A1 /dev/sdc
And then set your BIOS to boot the 40 GB sdc drive, and it looks like you should be able to boot into that Ubuntu install with no issues. The Ubuntu install on your 250 GB sdb drive is a different matter though, because for some reason the Ubuntu sdb6 partition couldn't be mounted. I would recommend using Ubuntu's Partition Editor gparted to reformat the sdb6 partition, and then try installing Ubuntu to that drive again. And if you want to avoid booting headaches, I would suggest clicking on the "advanced" button near the end of the installation and specify to have Grub installed to /dev/sdb, or the drive you are installing Ubuntu to. That way if you want to boot that drive, you would just change your BIOS to boot the drive, and you should be able to boot into Ubuntu with no problems if all goes well. Once you get Ubuntu booting OK, I can help you add an entry in your Grub menu to boot Windows if you want. Let me know how it goes or if you run into problems.

Thanks for that great advice. Due to server being down I couldn't get back with reply on Friday/Saturday.

So partial success. I now see the Grub boot loader and it works and also will boot me into Windows, which is great. However, I see a few different boot choices for Ubuntu, but none will intialize the OS. This is how far it gets:

line 231: cannot open /root/dev/console: no such file
and:
- attempted to kill init!

Is that a straightforward fix?

That's a really strange error, because it looks like the init service is looking for /root/dev/console, when it should be /dev/console I think. When you boot the Live CD that you used to install Ubuntu, have you tried selecting the option to check the CD for defects? I would do that if you haven't all ready, because I'm wondering how you could get such a strange booting error when its a fresh Ubuntu install. Did you happen to run an MD5 sum on the Ubuntu ISO you downloaded? It would probably be worth checking that your downloaded ISO is OK. Good luck and let me know how that goes.

Thanks, tried to reinstall, here's what I get now:

It looks like there might be some sort of hardware compatibility issue going on, because the errors you show make reference to a 8139 rev 10 chip, which the error says is not 8139C compatible chip. To get some clues which hardware element in your setup the error is referring to, how about posting the output of:

sudo lshw
And we can work from there.

TSellers
January 12th, 2009, 09:30 PM
OK, thanks.

Looks like 8139 is a chip on the Network card. There are 2 Network cards in the system, one is embedded in the MOBO, the other is PCI. One for LAN and one for WAN. Funny, both seem to work OK when booted from the CD:

How about before we go any further, I think it would be worth checking to make sure your Ubuntu HDD is in good health, because it seems strange that you are getting different errors with each reinstall. Also, I don't think you mentioned, but did you try the "check CD for defects" option on the Live CD? What did that return?

So to check the Ubuntu HDD's health, how about doing:

sudo apt-get install smartmontools
First do the following to save the current health status parameters of your HDD to a file on your desktop:

sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdc > ~/Desktop/sdc_health_before_test.txt
Then run:

sudo smartctl -t long /dev/sdc
That command will immediately terminate while the HDD begins its self-test, and it could take quite a while. You can monitor the progress with:

sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdc | grep -A 1 -i "self-test execution status"
Once the above command says the test is done, then do:

sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdc > ~/Desktop/sdc_health_after_test.txt
sudo smartctl -H /dev/sdc
And please post the contents of the two files on your desktop so I can see the results.

I don't seem to see the 'check cd' option on the CD that I'm using, maybe I should just download another ISO and reburn/reinstall it.

We already determined that the 250GB SATA Drive was wonky, I placed this intall on the 40GB IDE to be safe. So I'll run the check on that one. THanks.

Update:
Test is presently running. It is having trouble with the PCI Network card. I found there was no internet connectivity. When I switched the cable over to the other network coard, I then had internet connectivity.

I removed that Network card and tried to reboot, got a different error this time.

Heres the results of the test:

Here's the error I see now:

OK, it looks like your 40 GB Ubuntu drive is in good health, so that's good. I like your idea though of downloading another Ubuntu Live CD ISO, burning that (I would use a slow speed like 4X), and seeing if that makes any difference. Also, before you burn it, how about checking its MD5 hash sum by doing:

md5sum Ubuntu_Live_CD.ISO
Of course replace the name above with the name of the ISO you download. And lastly, once you boot up the new Live CD, how about running the "memtest86+" option for a while and see if it finds anything. Keep an eye on it though to see when it repeats, because it never actually completes, it just continually cycles through its tests. Because your fresh Ubuntu installs are giving strange/inconsistent errors, I would just like to remove as many variables as we can, including hardware-related issues, before we try to troubleshoot your specific problem. Let me know how that goes.

Thanks, is there a preferred download location for the version that you recommend I try next?

How about going to the Ubuntu.com download page (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download), choose to download the 8.10 desktop version, select a location in the drop down box that is close to you, and then you can download the ISO. Or if you have some experience using bit torrent, there's a link on the download page to get the .torrent file to download the ISO that way. Bit torrent is generally faster, but either way will work. Good luck and keep me posted.

Thanks for the assistance, it took awhile to get the opportunity but got it done this morning. It now boots properly, and I can now get busy with getting app's installed and setup properly.

I should start a new thread for this, but as I wanted to reply here, in case it's something simple I may as well get started and then can move it perhaps.

It's regarding dual display. Perviously when I installed Xandros in that system it worked so I suspected it may be do-able. The card is an nVidia GEForce 7800 with dual outputs, DVI and VGA. I can connect to either one and the display will work, but if both are connected at the same time they don't. When I do a hardware test it tells me it cannot connect with the database, and although it will also try to install some restricted nVidia drivers (it recommends version 177), but it also fails with the red circle popping up in a box. Should I start a new topic for this?

Thanks again for all the assistance!

Glad you at least have Ubuntu booting OK now, but about your dual monitor problem, I think you're better off starting a new thread since I have no experience setting up a dual monitor setup. Good luck and hope you can get it working OK.

Thanks again. Using the trusty search window found a thread from 22hrs ago that solved the dual display problem for me. I thought I saw somewhere that perhaps you needed to make a topic as solved, but maybe it was another forum.
