View Full Version : [ubuntu] The dreaded GRUB error 17 re-visited.

June 15th, 2010, 05:37 AM
Gentlemen,

I have a serious problem. I have been dual booting with windows xp on my laptop for some time now. I decided that I wanted to make the switch to ubuntu full force and downloaded a live version of xubuntu to do a little partition editing. I shrunk my windows to the minimum amount I could while retaining necessary programs. Then deleted an unused logical partition within the extended partition where Ubuntu and my linux swap partition was located. The changes were applied (after 2 hours copying files) and I re-booted.
Surprise surprise GRUB error 17, I now realize GRUB is likely looking for the now incorrectly named partition.
After some research this morning I have tried several solutions but am having no luck. Here is the result of running sudo fdisk -l

To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.

suubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk-l
sudo: fdisk-l: command not found

Hey thanks man.

You might want to check this explanation & possible solutions for grub error 17:
http://members.iinet.net.au/~herman546/p15.html#17

Your UUID appears to be correct in your menu.lst for your root partition, which means you may need to do a file system check, according to the recommendations in Herman's link.

Thanks again for the speedy responses. I read the information on Herman's blog and found it very useful however the only suggestion he has for 9.04 + is to do a file system check to resolve GRUB errors. I did so off my live xubuntu boot using g-parted as he mentions however I still suffer from the same error. Any other suggestions, this is quite frustrating to me. Thanks for all the help so far.

Try reinstalling grub, using the live cd:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=224351

There should be someone else who might see something in the results from your bootinfo script and can help you.

If reinstalling grub doesn't work & you have access to another computer, download & burn a copy of Super Grub Disk:
http://members.iinet.net.au/~herman546/SuperGrubDiskPage.html

See if SGD can boot Ubuntu or Windows or if it gives you a different grub error. SGD can also be used to repair the mbr for either Windows or Linux.

So I am definitely an ubuntu noob so can someone help me out here. I am trying to just do the re-install as mentioned in the above post but running "sudo grub" (without " " obviously) in the terminal returns the following.

sudo: grub: command not found

I am running on a xububntu live usb so I assume it is because it is looking on the usb not on the hard drive, any idea on how to fix this?

Or any other input would be appreciated.

Netbook

^
Also I have a netbook so while I do have access to another computer that will not be terribly useful due to my lack of an optical drive. Thanks for the idea though and my apologies for being too vague.

June 17th, 2010, 08:28 AM
You would need a live usb of Ubuntu 9.04 or an earlier version to reinstall grub to the mbr, I'm assuming your Xubuntu is 10.04.

If you need to be able to boot into Windows for now, you might want to check out these instructions:
http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/bootinfoscript/index.php?title=Boot_Problems:Computer_does_not_bo ot_without_external_drive

You'll mainly just need to run:

sudo apt-get install lilo
sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr
Ignore any warnings it might give you when running the commands.

It's getting late here, so I'll have to call it a night; but there should be plenty other experienced people here who can help you.

New idea. Is there anyway to access my data (files etc) from my live boot. I could just copy everything I want to an external drive and then do a clean install of 10.04 by re-formatting my and and starting all over. So is it possible to get at that stuff via my live boot?

Yes just go to the places computer and click on the hd or home I'm not sure which, I have never had to recover stuff

The script shows that it is looking for the grub files in sda6 which is a swap partition. It looks like everything is in the right place but grub.97 is just not looking in the correct place.

Personally I think this is fixable I just am not familiar with legacy grub but others are and are on line during the early morning to about 9 pm US west coast time. If you can hang for their help you might be able to get this fixed.

If you have run any fixes since posting the script originally run it again and post it and hang for help.

If you can delete the first script post so the thread page is not so long that would be helpful, just put a letter in place of the script. Leave the script in code tags there but delete the one above it.;)

You shouldn't have any problems accessing your data on your root partition, first you'll need to mount it by opening a terminal:

sudo mkdir /media/sda5
sudo mount /dev/sda5 /media/sda5

Then you should be able to open "file system", open the "media" directory, and open your sda5 partition. Plug in your external drive, then backup your data.

Did you choose to encrypt the files when you installed, if so that is going to make it a litte hard to view and recovery them. That is just speaking from experience. I used bt4 because it is on my other partition, but Knoppix is a live OS that can change the read and write permissions on a mounted hard drive. That could be a little help. I do not know how to do it from Knoppix, but I do know that you can mount a partition and then open up a root terminal in that partition. At that point you can read and write things to the partition when it is not accessible any other way.

I dont know alot about this but, in his info it says the boot start at sector 63, does grub look for it at sector 0. I am just asking I am not sure of any of this.

Partition Boot Start End Size Id System

/dev/sdb1 * 63 15,791,894 15,791,832 b W95 FAT32




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.
#
# You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
# is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.
# WARNING: If you are using dmraid do not use 'savedefault' or your
# array will desync and will not let you boot your system.
default 0



That are the two things I am looking at. Can someone follow up and tell me if I am going in the right direction or not.
