View Full Version : [ubuntu] 13.10 won't boot after install to USB drive

I've installed 13.04 and 13.10 to this same usb flash drive many times (64bit). I use it to load VMWare and boot a multimedia server from a raid array.

I've been working on an automated install so I can easily set everything up if something goes wrong (plus I can learn linux scripting better ;).

I'm fighting a No OS System Installed error after installing 13.10. I ran boot repair and got the following results:


Any tips on fixing this are appreciated.

I do not see anything wrong.

No OS sounds more like a BIOS error. Some BIOS post that if you do not have a boot flag on a primary partition, but you have a boot flag.
Does BIOS see drive correctly? I do not think script runs unless BIOS has reported it correctly.

Is it booting from sda? Or is BIOS set to boot another drive and does not get to sda?
