View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade problem with dual-boot

July 8th, 2012, 04:51 PM
Hi all.

I was running Ubuntu 11.10 alongside windows XP for a while with no problems but decided this morning to upgrade Ubuntu to 12.04. The upgrade seemed to go fine, however upon rebooting I could not load any of the OS options: selecting any boot option (Ubuntu, Ubuntu recovery mode,memory test or XP) resulted in a message saying partition not found.

I loaded up 11.10 from a boot disk and the partitions and the data is still there, and the computer does how 12.04 installed. Can anyone suggest a fix?

Presumably there is a preference file that didn't get updated, and so the boot is looking for the old Ubuntu install?

From the LiveCD install and run Boot Repair. Click the "Recommended repair" button. If that doesn't fix it, run the info script and post the link.

See the Boot Repair link in my signature line for more information.
