One useful tool for finding and fixing boot problems is the Boot Info Script. I often ask for the output when helping find and fix boot problems. So I put this little how to together to keep from typing the same thing over and over. (lazy).

Special thanks to meiefra for authoring the script and making it available.

How to get it - Download it from here. Boot Info Script - SourceForge.net (http://sourceforge.net/projects/bootinfoscript/)

How to run it:
From your Ubuntu hard drive install:

Open a terminal window - Applications>Accessories>Terminal

Type or cut n paste the following.

sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.shUpdate Karmic users - the default download directory is now ~/Downloads

sudo bash ~/Downloads/boot_info_script*.shIf you have changed the Firefox default download location. Then change the ~/Downloads/ part of the command to your download directory.

You will be asked for a password - your user password. You will not see the cursor move or see any stars as you type - thats the way of the Linux terminal. Type it in and press enter.

Where to find its output:
The script creates file RESULTS.TXT in same directory it is stored in. ( default ~/Downloads)
Add it to your post:
Open RESULTS.TXT in your favorite text editor - cut and paste - it can be long please use code tags (the # on the tool bar) or add the file as an attachment.

If you can't boot into the Ubuntu install:
From a live Ubuntu CD:
Same as above - except you will not be asked for a password.

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Here is the RESULTS.TXT file for a Desktop that Boots XP, Win 7 and Ubuntu Jaunty. It has a 200GB and a 320GB HDD. Both are SATA hard drives.

Whats in the MBR? This PC boot straight to XP if sda is 1st in the boot order.
If sdb is 1st it boots to Grub legacy. The menu has 3 entries for Jaunty, XP and Win7.


============================= Boot Info Summary:

=> Windows is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda
=> Grub0.97 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb and looks on the same drive
in partition #1 for /grub/stage2 and /grub/menu.lst.

Hi Louie,
thanks for a great "how to". I have posted links to it heaps of times. :popcorn:

One thing though, there is a typo that jumps out at me every time I look at it

If you can't boot into the Ubuntu install:
From a live Ubuntu CD:
Same as above - except you will no be asked for a password.

"no" should be "not"

cannot download the boot info script from source forge!!!!!!
What exactly is the problem? What happens if you click on big green "Download Now" button?
I suggest to try again. Might just have been a bad Internet connection.

I'm having trouble with GRUB not booting WinXP. I ran the bootinfo script and have posted my results.txt file. I was wondering if anyone could help me interpret it. Sorry if I'm not posting to the right place. This is my first time using a forum. Thank you.

This thread is a info thread, so start a thread all your own and put the script there. Copy all the text from the script generated file, click on the (#) in the reply and paste the text between. You need the text on the thread, your own, if you can.:)

Try in the Ubuntu terminal.
sudo update-grub
before you start a new thread.

I would suggest that you make a new thread stating what exactly has happened. You should also mention RAID in the title perhaps.

I have installed Ubuntu but I cannot log in (although I can get into the shell). Could someone please post detailed instructions on how to download and install the file from the shell?

(Note: I installed from the Ubuntu alternate CD, the live CD does not work for me.)

@louieb: thanks for your howto. To complete your 1st post, here is also a little GUI that runs BootInfo script in 1 click (it also checks that all necessary packages are installed, creates a convenient Pastebin URL when internet is detected, and adds useful information to the log): http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11136267&postcount=1
(I'm also working with Gert to improve the script.)
