View Full Version : [ubuntu] Error: Unrecognized File System

I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 with the Live Disk alongside my previous install of Windows 7. My partitions might be kind of messy because I tried to install several times, but kept getting this problem.

Basically, after GRUB 2 boots up if I select Windows 7 OR Ubuntu I get


Error: Unknown Filesystem
Press any key to continue It eventually actually boots to whichever OS I choose.

Sometimes however I get

Error: Unknown Filesystem
Error: Attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd1'

If I get that message, I have to hard restart my computer as it will not continue past.

This is the boot script results.txt

Attempted to do boot repair. For some reason I can't set it to use my SSD (sda, 128GB) to be the boot from? I guess this doesn't matter.

Anyways, changed my platter drive to be the one it starts up to. Did not work. Went into Grub-rescue. This is the boot report it gave:
