    Re: Grub Upgrade - Dangerous Direction Screenshot

    Hi Guys

    I've been reading through threads to try and resolve the issues I'm having and this seems to address what's happening.

    I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 but on reboot get the following error message:

    error: the symbol 'grub_puts_' not found
    I have 3 internal SATA drives - one with ubuntu, one ext3 for file storage and one with Win XP. I also have an external USB hard drive. All drives were plugged in and detected when I performed the upgrade. One thread suggested I disconnect all the other drives to resolve the boot issue but this did not solve it.

    Below is the output of the boot script:

    I too got hit with the following: http://art.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1475385 but I didn't install grub to all drives. I did, however, select to install to sda1 - the boot partition - thinking this was the correct option, which by what I've been reading is incorrect, as instead of installing grub to the root partition I should have installed it to the drive, ie. sda. Is this correct? If so how do I now change this as it's looking for core.img but it cannot be found at that location.

    Any help much appreciated

    I too got hit with the following: http://art.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1475385 but I didn't install grub to all drives. I did, however, select to install to sda1 - the boot partition - thinking this was the correct option, which by what I've been reading is incorrect, as instead of installing grub to the root partition I should have installed it to the drive, ie. sda. Is this correct? If so how do I now change this as it's looking for core.img but it cannot be found at that location.

    Any help much appreciated

    Re: Grub Upgrade - Dangerous Direction Screenshot

    Hi

    Thanks for the response, however, I'm not trying to repair my Windows disk. In fact all disks have been disconnected bar my primary ubuntu disk, which is whats reporting the grub error.

    Following the testdisk instructions (to see if it would also apply to linux) I get as far as the
    Fifth screen: Select the Windows system partition and choose "boot"
    but there is no option to choose boot - the primary partition is already flagged as bootable.

    Looking at the output of the boot info script:

    Code:
    sda1: _________________________________________________________________________
    
        File system:       ext3
        Boot sector type:  Grub 2
        Boot sector info:  Grub 2 is installed in the boot sector of sda1 and 
                           looks at sector 2277439 of the same hard drive for 
                           core.img, but core.img can not be found at this 
                           location.
        Operating System:  Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
        Boot files/dirs:   /boot/grub/grub.cfg /etc/fstab /boot/grub/core.img
    How do I resolve the incorrect location? Any ideas?

    TIA

    BR

    Re: Grub Upgrade - Dangerous Direction Screenshot

    the PBR partition boot record or boot sector is not used normally except by windows or those chainbooting from another boot loader. Having grub installed to a Ubuntu partition will not cause any problem as long as the grub in the MBR points to the correct partition and you are not chainbooting (uncommon).

    Re: Grub Upgrade - Dangerous Direction Screenshot

    I was playing with Debian Squeeze trying to resolve an issue with usplash and happened to change from grub-legacy to grub2 and they've got it right (at least closer to right):

    I'll post this info at my bug report also.

    I'd love it if someone with insider contacts to the devs could draw some attention to this
