    GRUB Not Showing Ubuntu Install

    I have both 8.10 and 10.10 installed on my hard drive, but whenever I boot the GRUB (I believe it is GRUB Legacy not GRUB2) only shows 8.10. Is there any way to get it to see my newly-installed 10.10?

    Re: GRUB Not Showing Ubuntu Install

    From within the booted up system have you run sudo update-grub in a terminal? Is the other system picked up then?

    Strange, unless you installed 8.10 after 10.10 then you should have Grub2 and all should be sweet.
    Legacy grub AFAIK does not support Ext 4 so won't see your 10.10 install.


    Here is the Grub documentation page...
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2

    You might want to scroll down to "Reinstalling Grub2 from the live cd" and check that.
    Post if you have Questions.

    Could be a number of reasons, post the running of the bootscript in my signature. Post it in code tags by clicking on the # in the reply panel. Paste all the text from the generated file between the code tags.

    Quackers or I can help you better and others if we see what's up much better.

    Tried that, didn't work. Tried updating to Grub2, but it still doesn't see the install (it's defenatly there though)

    If I can't get this working today, I'm just going to wipe both Ubuntu partitions and re-install 10.10, as I need to get back to doing important things on it asap.

    Re: GRUB Not Showing Ubuntu Install

    I'm not so good with grub legacy, but it appears that grub2 is installed in several partitions.
    My suggestion would be to boot from a live cd and see if you can access everything you need to backup and back it up, then re-install 10.10.

    See if willee-nillee has a more amenable suggestion first though

    I agree with the wipe and reinstall, it is convoluted to say the least, might be fixable but a reinstall would be much faster. You have a BSD, and GPT indication in sda1, and missing files from what I assume is sda4=10.10, and the sda3 which has both grub-legacy and grub2.

    Sometimes it is just easier to wipe it, and install.

    Do you need any OS besides 10.10 at this time?

    Re: GRUB Not Showing Ubuntu Install

    I backed everything important up as soon as the problems started, just incase. I don't need 8.10 anymore, only Mac OSX and Ubuntu 10.10. Time to get installing then I guess.

    Thanks for all your help!
