Re: How to Make Kubuntu Show in Grub?
Here are my notes as I try to sort this out in the script results.
Grub2 but not the most current version is installed to the MBR of sda and looks to the BackTrack partition for it's boot files. There is no boot loader installed to the sdb windows drive and it appears that drive may not have been read well. Sdc is confusing. It looks like it has a copy of the MBR from sda but not the same partitions. Grub2 looks to a non-existent partition for its files. Windows seems to have written to the mbr of sdd but no boot files are found. I can't tell what the other device found is. Is Kubuntu on sda6?
Your Grub entries are wrong and I can't see just how that happened. The first entry point to sdd1 an NTFS partition. That entry even has previous kernel versions shown. The next entry is found by the Grub2 os prober and is windows 7 on sdb1, which could be correct. sda6 does have grub files and that grub has entries for windows on sdb1 and ubuntu on sdd3 (sdd3 doesn't seem to exist). fstab on sda6 shows it as / mount point, sda7 as /Home and sda5 as swap.
The backtrack partition (sda8) has grub files that have entries for itself and windows in the right partitions. It uses old hdx notation for devices and must be an old grub. It shows / on sda8 and /Home on sda9 in fstab.
From all of this I wondered about RAID being involved and the script results do show RAID errors that I can't interpret. This is in the boot-repair log.
I also wonder about LBA being in use on sda from the log. The log makes me think that boot-repair thinks it can fix grub but I'm not sure at all about that. I believe it would purge and reinstall grub2 on sda8. That could be enough and right and I don't expect that to make it worse.
sda8 contains The OS now in use - Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS (linux)
sda6 contains Ubuntu 11.04 (linux)
sdc1 contains Windows 7 (windows)
I don't feel like I've given you great information and a solution. I'll see if I can get anyone else with more experience to take a look if they haven't while I've been doing this.
