    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    If you have the good old BIOS (and not UEFI) you can find tips how to repair grub and reinstall the bootloader from the following links

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Gr...talling_GRUB_2

    If you have UEFI, you need to wait for someone else to help you ...

    The machine uses a proxy server, and I did not see a way to set the proxy using the boot-repair live cd.
    hello
    For sure, do not continue without internet if you see that warning.
    If you know how to set up you proxy on Ubuntu13.04, I'd recommend you use Boot-Repair from Linux-Secure-Remix (which is Ubuntu13.04 with preinstalled Boot-Repair).
    Or install Boot-Repair into an Ubuntu live session.

    @kulus1969
    It looks like your Windows recovery rewrote partition table and removed the Linux partition. But it left extended and swap but you show a large unused space in the extended that is probably your install.
    You can use testdisk to find the missing partition and restore it. Then Boot-Repair should be able to see the files inside it and correctly reinstall grub.

    Thanks for this...it seems very complicated.

    I ended up reinstalling Lubuntu 13.04.

    Thanks @YannBuntu. I think I can see how both these suggestions would work.

    You can run this which is a more complete check of file system. Not sure if that is what it is reporting or not.

    #From liveCD so everything is unmounted,swap off if necessary, change example shown with partition sda1 to your partition(s)
    #e2fsck is used to check the ext2/ext3/ext4 family of file systems. -p trys fixes where response not required
    sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sda1
    #if errors: -y auto answers yes for fixes needing response, also see man e2fsck
    sudo e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sda1

    Thanks for the reply, i tried the suggestion but I'm still getting the same error. Think i will just have to copy over important files with the live cd and reinstall.

    I have opened up gparted and noticed the partition with ubuntu is not mounted and sda2 is which has nothing on it

    Your sda2 is the extended partition which has no data. It is just a container for all the logical partitions inside the extended. You only have one logical which is your swap partition.

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    i managed to recover the os using the following


    1. Boot the Ubuntu Live CD.
    2. Press Ctrl-Alt-F1

    3. sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

    4. sudo chroot /mnt

    5. apt-get update

    6. apt-get upgrade

      it gave a few errors so i followed the instructions given and it's now working, hopefully this can help others with similar issues.
