"Boot-repair supports 10.04 and later" means that I ensure the best I can that it works for these versions only. For 9.10 and previous versions, it may work, and if not, I won't spend time to make it work.
If you want to keep 9.04, and if Boot-Repair does not work for this outdated version, you will have to repair your boot manually. For this it may be useful to know that Ubuntu 9.04 uses GRUB Legacy (which also is not supported any more).
If not, you can simply use your Ubuntu 11.10 CD to reinstall 11.10 above (or in dual-boot with) your current 9.04 system. This will install GRUB2.
Thanks for the tool YannBuntu. That just saved me when I did something stupid to my myth install. Fixed in recorded time!
(do you have a ppa to upgrade the stupid "ideas" I keep getting? )
Out of the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success
Are you for Linux? Is Linux for you?
I can confirm you that this software does NOT work for Ubuntu 9.04. And I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired of fixing things that would never have been supposed to break, so I quit, bye.
Ubuntu: Linux for human beings with time to waste.
Great tool - the first time I used it. Thanks a lot. Installed Win7 on a dual boot machine and lost the GRUB script. Used the boot repair disk to recover. Fantastic. Had a recurrence a few days later but now the GRUB options greyed out and I cant recover the GRUB. Running Ubuntu 11.0 Might have applied some updates in between the two instance. Any suggestions? Help!?
please boot a Ubuntu CD, choose "Try Ubuntu", connect internet, run Boot-Repair, click "Recommended repair", and indicate me the URL that will appear.
Used a Ubuntu 10.04 CD and downloaded from PPA...and did as instructed in Ubuntu Community i.e.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
It ran Boot repair straightaway. Previously I am sure I had to then invoke it by typing boot-repair at the CLI.
Grub tabs still greyed out. Says it repaired successfully.
Presume this is what you need:
Await with bated breath.....
