View Full Version : [ubuntu] removed old partition and now new install doesn't boot

So long story, I had a dual boot system with win7 (sda1) and ubuntu 12.04 (sda5&swap sda6), and a shared NFTS partition(sda4). I didn't like unity and gnome was not working very nicely, so I ended up corrupting that system, I installed a clean version on 10.10 (and then upgraded that to 11.04) at the end of the hard drive in it's own new partition(sda 7 and sda 8.) Anyway it was working fine as a tri-boot system minus the fact that 12.04 wasn't booting, so after I got all the info I needed off 12.04 I wanted to delete it and it's swap drive and resize my new operating system. but once I deleted the old partition, my computer renamed the new 11.04 partitions as sda6 and sda7 and now the grub2 doesn't load at all. I am using the live disk to view things right now. Any Ideas how to fix this. I was thinking that maybe upgrade-grub but that is not working from the live CD. and not sure if it would fix the issues anyway.

Ahhhh nevermind. Simple solution, just reinstall the grub2 file using chroot.
