    Re: Boot Info Script: How to

    I'm having trouble with GRUB not booting WinXP. I ran the bootinfo script and have posted my results.txt file. I was wondering if anyone could help me interpret it. Sorry if I'm not posting to the right place. This is my first time using a forum. Thank you.

    This thread is a info thread, so start a thread all your own and put the script there. Copy all the text from the script generated file, click on the (#) in the reply and paste the text between. You need the text on the thread, your own, if you can.

    Try in the Ubuntu terminal.
    sudo update-grub
    before you start a new thread.

    Special thanks to meiefra for authoring the script and making it available.

    How to get it - Download it from here. Boot Info Script - SourceForge.net

    How to run it:
    From your Ubuntu hard drive install:

    Open a terminal window - Applications>Accessories>Terminal

    Type or cut n paste the following.
    Code:
    sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh
    Update Karmic users - the default download directory is now ~/Downloads
    Code:
    sudo bash ~/Downloads/boot_info_script*.sh
    If you have changed the Firefox default download location. Then change the ~/Downloads/ part of the command to your download directory.

    You will be asked for a password - your user password. You will not see the cursor move or see any stars as you type - thats the way of the Linux terminal. Type it in and press enter.

    Where to find its output:
    The script creates file RESULTS.TXT in same directory it is stored in. ( default ~/Downloads)
    Add it to your post:
    Open RESULTS.TXT in your favorite text editor - cut and paste - it can be long please use code tags (the # on the tool bar) or add the file as an attachment.

    If you can't boot into the Ubuntu install:

    From a live Ubuntu CD:
    Same as above - except you will not be asked for a password.

    Comments and suggestions are welcome.
    thaks for this tips

    I would suggest that you make a new thread stating what exactly has happened. You should also mention RAID in the title perhaps.

    Re: Boot Info Script: How to

    I have installed Ubuntu but I cannot log in (although I can get into the shell). Could someone please post detailed instructions on how to download and install the file from the shell?

    (Note: I installed from the Ubuntu alternate CD, the live CD does not work for me.)

    @louieb: thanks for your howto. To complete your 1st post, here is also a little GUI that runs BootInfo script in 1 click (it also checks that all necessary packages are installed, creates a convenient Pastebin URL when internet is detected, and adds useful information to the log): http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...67&postcount=1
    (I'm also working with Gert to improve the script.)
