View Full Version : [ubuntu] external HD install gone wrong!

July 22nd, 2009, 09:10 PM
i installed ubuntu to am external hard drive yesterday and now i'm having a problem, when i boot with the external attached everything is fine i am given a choice of what OS i would like to boot "vista internal" or "ubuntu installed on external" no problem there.

but when i switch off and try booting without the external attached vista can't boot because the computer is trying to access the initial menu system offereing boot preference.

i can still access both OS but only now with the external HD attached.

any IDEAS???

I'm thinking that it over-wrote your boot and put it onto your external hd so it will only show when you have the external hd plugged in.
