  1. Re: Grub menu does not point to latest kernel

    One other thing:

    I got rid of all the dpkg errors that showed up in the boot-repair log by

    sudo dpkg --clear-avail
    sudo aptitude purge virtualbox-2.0 virtualbox-2.1 virtualbox-3.0...
  2. Re: Grub menu does not point to latest kernel

    I clone the system from time to time to make sure I have a functioning image. My existing backup was 4 months old (taken before I upgraded from lucid to precise), so it was time.

    [BTW, I was...
  3. Re: Grub menu does not point to latest kernel

    Sounds good. I'll let you know how this works out (probably tomorrow--I will clone the system 1st and need time to do that).
  4. Re: Grub menu does not point to latest kernel

    Thank you. The boot-info also said:


    Is this something I need to do?
  5. Re: Grub menu does not point to latest kernel

    OK. I ran boot-info, results here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1468525/

    Looks like old grub is there. Not sure what to do with most of the info, but the recommended repair sounds like what you guys...
  6. Re: Grub menu does not point to latest kernel

    Darkod and grahammechanical, thanks.

    Yes, this was a distribution upgrade from lucid, and yes I figured there was some grub confusion. It's possible that the initial upgrade got me to the .29...
  7. Re: Grub menu does not point to latest kernel

    Thank you. It will take me some time to get to this. I will post the report here when I'm done.

    I assume that you mean to create the summary and post that, not do the recommend repair--correct?
  8. Grub menu does not point to latest kernel

    Running Precise, 12.04.1 64-bit, I apply updates whenever update manager tell me there are some.

    sudo update-grub shows me I have kernels 3.2.0.30 through 35 installed, but uname -r shows that I...

    I had the similar symptoms--computers on the network, including VMs, could not see each other (ubuntu or windows, although windows 7 computers could see each other only).

    [SOLVED] Re: Set up DNS for static ip on lucid vbox guest

    OK, I got this to work. But I am on to the next question.

    [SOLVED] Set up DNS for static ip on lucid vbox guest

    I have virtualbox on a lucid 64 bit host. I am trying to set up a intranet site on a guest (also lucid 64). In vbox on the host I went to settings/network for the guest and added a bridged adapter....
  15. [SOLVED] Re: karmic and vbox 2.2.4 guest additions

    In case anyone cares, the answer appears to be that karmic does not like vbox 2.2.4, at least for guest additions.

    I got the first machine I tried as a vmdk from a friend. When that wouldn't...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Convert physical XP to virtual for Virtualbox

    The problem occurs without VMWare in the picture. There may be issues there, but that's not this problem.

  18. [SOLVED] Re: [Solved] Convert physical XP to virtual for Virtualbox

    With guidance on the Virtualbox forum, I found a simple answer:
    1. Make a copy of hal.dll in windows\system32 (so you can copy it back if you want to boot the machine again)
    2. Find a hal.dll in an...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Convert physical XP to virtual for Virtualbox

    I've been there.

    My understanding is that sysprep is for imaging new systems for multiple destinations. I may be way off on that.

    Also, I do not have windows cds. The system I'm testing on...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Convert physical XP to virtual for Virtualbox

    I created a single filw with vmware-vdiskmanager, and was able to boot it in vbox.

    Now I'm back where I started: hangs on Mup.sys.

    I've experimented a little with vbox settings...no difference....
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Convert physical XP to virtual for Virtualbox

    Vbox definitely does not like that. I did not see an option to create a single file, and I looked. I'll try again. Meanwhile, I got VMWare-vdiskmanager to work. Now I'll see how Vbox likes that.
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Convert physical XP to virtual for Virtualbox

    Thanks.

    I can convert my single boot machine, but I run into problems when I try to use it in Vbox. The directions tell me that first I need to use vmware disk manager. I've installed vmware...
