    well "yes" and "no" :D

    I have an SSD with Win 7 with AHCI enabled, tho' I desperately wanted to just throw an Acronis image on there... I was advised by the sevenforum to do complete re-install so...

    Hi rbmorse,

    Thanks for the reply. Yes I realize it's not going to boot, I already have the Boot Repair Disc but don't really want to use it. My Ubuntu system was made with Grub on the / partition...

    Mint questions here or no?

    Since I don't see any forums named Mint, I have to assume it's best not to ask questions about it in here, Am I correct in this assumption? I keep reading that Mint is based on Ubuntu but how...

    [ubuntu] Re: Bash Script

    fwiw running that script on my Ubuntu 14.04 indicated it was vulnerable, so if you haven't run the test script I'd suggest doing so.

  9. Re: After installing an image file I get a 'grub rescue' error....

    Today I made another image backup of my main HD using Acronis 2014. My HD has XPired, Win 7 and Ubuntu on it, normally I have not been making backups of XPired because I rarely use it and never add...
  10. Re: After installing an image file I get a 'grub rescue' error....

    Very interesting information to say the least. I can understand that people would mistakenly choose a windows partition to install Grub if they didn't know where they originally had it using the...
  11. Re: After installing an image file I get a 'grub rescue' error....

    So you're saying that if I had used the Live CD, and installed Ubuntu over itself, I'd have had the choice in the built in Gparted in Ubuntu to put Grub where I wanted?

    I cannot agree that the...
  12. Re: After installing an image file I get a 'grub rescue' error....

    Thanks to all of you that responded, sounds like the change to another HD makes Grub not work, in spite of what Acronis would have me believe. I don't think I ever said that using the Live CD I could...

  15. Re: After installing an image file I get a 'grub rescue' error....

    Michael,

    The first one installed on my main drive was XPired and I am not restoring that for many reasons. If I can get past the Grub Rescue warning I'll be fine. What is puzzling me is that my...

    As I called out in my original post I am using EasyBCD to start Linux. What struck me was your mention of multiple drives with a bootloader for each one. A friend says he did it by accident once but...

    Yes there is only one drive, the main one is disconnected, that was done to prevent booting from the larger 'main drive.'

    Thanks for the warning, but it seems a bit disingenuous to have the various DE's available if in fact they are a 'time release" ticking time bomb, waiting for an update to destroy the OS.
