View Full Version : [all variants] ERROR 17: while using UBUNTU from external harddisk

June 8th, 2009, 04:40 AM
I am a newbie of UBUNTU LINUX.

I wanted to make effective use of my 160GIG external harddisk and decided to use it as both storage device as well as portable UBUNTU OS carrier. So I installed KUBUNTU 9.0.4 in my external harddisk [FULL OS INSTALLATION].

I partitioned the harddisk into 40GIG NTFS [STORAGE PURPOSE] and remaining space to be used with KUBUNTU. Even the GRUB is located in my external harddisk [So there is no problem with it since it can be used in any system]. So at the time of booting I set the boot options as "Boot from EXTERNAL USB HardDisk" on my laptop.

Kubuntu installation is successful and worked without any problem on my laptop. I even tried booting Kubuntu on different systems with different configurations.

But when I booted it 2 days back I got a problem. At the time of booting it says

GRUB 1.5 is starting ...

I am not sure how to solve this problem .......
