View Full Version : [ubuntu] "No such partition" error

November 2nd, 2010, 09:23 AM
Good day.

I'm trying to install 10.10 to HP nw8440, it boot's from cd, installs and don't start's, just showing me "No such partition" error.

Partitions on my laptop are:

sda1 -> Win7 Bootloader
sda2 -> Win7
sda3 -> Ntfs partion
sda5 -> Ubuntu root partition
sda6 -> Swap

Interesting is that grub rescue console on ls command shows me:

(hd0), (hd0,msdos3), (hd0,msdos2), (hd0,msdos1)
but in grub.cfg sda5 is written as (hd0,msdos5)

Several times I tried to boot from livecd, chroot and run "update-grub", "grub-install" and other grub rescue commands with needed parameters, but there still "no such partition" error.

Please help!

P.S.: Please don't post links to grub rescue howtos, I read most of them, in my situation they are useless.
