    Grub issues on new install

    Hi there i just installed ubuntu 12.04 32 bit and im having some issues (not wubi). When i start up i get a screen that just says "grub>" and i dont know what to do.

    I was getting "error 15" at grub but booted up with the CD and i did this:
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda9 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
    which left me having "grub>" pop up when i boot

    I have ubuntu 11.04 on another partition but i dont care about it, it was super broken so i wanted to do a clean install, in case you notice it below.


    i ran the boot init script and got these results:
    Code:

    Re: Grub issues on new install

    The error 15 is from grub1 (grub legacy) you have in /dev/sda. The grub2 in /dev/sdb also looks weird.

    Boot with your 12.04 cd into live mode and in terminal do:
    sudo mount /dev/sda9 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda

    That will put grub2 from 12.04 on /dev/sda. Make sure the first disk (500GB) is the first option to boot in BIOS and it should work.

    Boot with your 12.04 cd into live mode and in terminal do:
    sudo mount /dev/sda9 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda

    That will put grub2 from 12.04 on /dev/sda. Make sure the first disk (500GB) is the first option to boot in BIOS and it should work.

    I already did that (see above) but it didnt help
    I cant control which drive is the first boot in my bios.

    Re: Grub issues on new install

    If you ran the script after executing the commands, something went wrong during the reinstall. Because the script shows grub1 on /dev/sda which can't be there if you ran those commands.

    Try this modification:
    sudo mount /dev/sda9 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sda

    See if that helps.

    It installed to boot from sda1 your 11.10 not your 12.04 in sda10. You may be able to rerun it but specify sda10 as the one you want.

    Re: Grub issues on new install

    Are you bootining into 11.04 or 12.04?

    If booting into 11.04, and you do not have 12.04 on menu:
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    If booting or once booting into 12.04 you can install 12.04's grub2 boot loader to the MBR. Only once booted into 12.04:

    Code:
    sudo grub-install /dev/sda

    Re: Grub issues on new install

    sudo grub-install /dev/sda
    worked

    i have no idea why that would work but:
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
    wouldn't
