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

    Thank you so much, the error was staring me right in the face every time I ran boot-repair but I didn't understand it. I was always given the option to boot the cd in uefi or legacy mode. Uefi always seemed to error, but really I just needed to be more patient. So I always used legacy mode. I never paid attention to that part until I tried it out again this morning. I tried in Uefi mode instead and it worked perfectly.

    @oldfred

    Thank you for your response.
    I booted the Live System in BIOS and I run boot-repair. Again after prompting me to type tthe aforementioned third command the terminal still returns the "no matches found: grub". Can you help me?

    Edit: I managed to to boot in my installed Ubuntu using the gnu grub of the Live System, and then using insmod, linux, initrd, and boot commands. So I installed boot repair, and again it still the terminal returns the "no matches found: grub*". The Boot info summary: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7775190/

    @Christos_Ch
    If you can manually boot into your system, reinstall grub from there, you do not need Boot-Repair for that.
    You can run just the reinstall to the MBR within an install with just these commands:
    sudo grub-install /dev/sda
    If any error:
    sudo grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
    sudo update-grub


    But dpkg install often does more.

    #To see what drive grub2 uses see this line - grub-pc/install_devices:
    sudo debconf-show grub-pc
    sudo grub-probe -t device /boot/grub


    #to get grub2 to remember where to reinstall on updates:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc
    #Enter thru first pages,spacebar to choose/unchoose drive, enter to accept, do not choose partitions

    Thanks for your response. Sorry for not answering sooner, butiwas trying to fix the problem. I followed your instructions and I read the thread you linked.
    I install GRUB, but then debconf cannot find it. It is like it is not there. I don't seem to find any solution to my problem.

    I think I am getting out of topic to this thread, so I will stop. Thanks for your responses and your help.

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

    Hi!

    I'm having some troubles with the grub after making a dist-upgrade after changing the raring repositories to use the old-releases server (It updated the grub and messed it up).
    I have to say that the linux distro in which I'm having trouble is linux mint 15 (like a 13.04 ubuntu), but as I already used this tool several times with it and it worked, I don't think it's a mint specific problem.

    After using the tool several times trying some options I got this URL with the results saying that an error occurred.
    http://paste2.org/8Vp5mb3s

    sda is the hard drive, and sdb is the live USB that I used to run the boot-repair. The disk uses GPT, in sda3 there is windows 7 and linux mint in sda5. The system uses EFI.

    I tried to look up myself the generated log, but I lack any knowledge about the grub config.
    Any help will be appreciated.

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

    Does Mint also use Ubuntu repositories? Not sure if Boot-Repair internally uses the repositories you have set or not.

    I thought Boot-Repair has to download from current repositories and everything but 12.04 & 14.04 & 10.04 server has expired.
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

    You also ran the 'buggy' fix. That is only required on some computers and some other renames may work better.
    I would undo it and see if you can boot the Mint entry in UEFI.


    Always say no until proven that you only can boot Windows entry from UEFI menu.
    buggy-kernel detected. Do you want to activate [Backup and rename Windows EFI files]? yes (if any choice fails, please retry with the other)
    To undo & to rename files to their original names, you just need to tick the "Restore EFI backups" option of Boot-Repair.

    You also show dual video which also has issues. Generally you need a newer nVidia that is in the newest Ubuntu and with Intel the newest kernel & support software as well as Intel video drivers. Newest version may not be new enough for some very new systems.

    Broadwell (future) fix for use with 14.04's 3.13 kernel. Fixes really in 3.15 kernel

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

    Thanks for the answer.
    Mint uses their own repositories plus the ubuntu official ones.

    I restored the EFi backups but I keeped having some troubles.

    Finally I could log in my system using this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...5#post11308225
    And there reinstall grub. I don't know the exact commands, the grub reinstall was done by a IT friend.

    He must be tired of doing this according to the tremendous speed at he fixed the problem xD

    Also, the problem with the dual GPU is solved. I got the grub problem trying to solve the dual GPU problem.

    Again, thanks for your response.

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

    Hello.

    My aim is/was to have dual boot system: Win8 and Ubuntu.

    I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS on my computer (Acer Aspire S7 391, 256GB SSD) and now my computer doesn't boot from HDD (well, SSD) at all. Here is what I've done:
    - I resized disk C: on Windows (there is Win8 preinstalled on this laptop), using some standard Windows tool, and created some unallocated space
    - I created Ubuntu live USB (ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso) with unetbootin and started it, then installed Ubuntu; there was some problem with creating partitions (swap and ext4) on unallocated space within installer, so I've done this using gparted and then pointed installer to these partitions
    - SecureBoot is/was (during installation) disabled
    - UEFI is/was (during installation) enabled.

    Installation went smoothly. Unfortunately, after reboot there is only a message on the screen "No bootable device found". I can't boot Windows nor Linux anymore.
    Some more info about this system: it seems there are 2 SSD disks here (2x128GB) connected with RAID0 (striped); I had only one logical disk in Windows: C:.

    I tried to repair the problem with boot-repair, unfortunately to no avail. Here is info created by this tool: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7991980/ ("Toshiba" is a name of the pendrive.)
    After clicking on "Recommended repair" button there was some window with a message to paste some commands to a terminal. Well, it didn't work: there was a problem with installing refind. (Message about EFI partition being not VFAT is bogus; it is a VFAT partition!) Here is output:

    As I cannot use my new shiny computer without pendrive now, I am begging you for some help. Your support will be much appreciated.
    Feel free to ask any questions and make any requests; I am somehow experienced Linux user (I have been using it since the 90's), but I can't figure out this one.

    Thank you.

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

    @Special_Snowflake

    Your issue is the RAID as the desktop installer does not have the drivers. And then grub does not install correctly.
    They used to have an alternative installer for RAID and LVM, but discontinued it after 12.04 with promises of later adding that back into gui installer. With 14.04 you can now use LVM which is a full drive install and it seems to recognize RAID better but not yet fully.

    I do not know RAID, so not sure if any of this helps.

    RAID install with efi, need configfile and grub in efi partition.

    With LVM, Ubuntu installs a separate /boot and the efi outside the RAID. You have efi partition inside the RAID and I think I have seen that work as I thought it had to be outside of the RAID for the UEFI to read the drive.

    One or two users with dual SSD, fully back up system, break RAID and restore Windows to one drive and install Ubuntu to the other drive. I think Intel SRT can easily be restored, not so sure about full "fakeRAID" type install.

    Most do not recommend RAID 0.
    Don't bother with RAID 0 unless you have a specific need for speed without data redundancy, since if one drive goes out, you lose the whole array.
