    Re: Grub Rescue prompt after 12.10 upgrade

    If you want to try GRUB Legacy, you can run Boot-Repair --> Advanced options --> GRUB options --> tick "GRUB Legacy" --> Apply.
    I wrote before that it's operation finished with error at me.

    Found workaround in installing burg. Instructions (for exapmle, Ubuntu installed on /dev/sda5):
    1. Load from LiveCD image.
    2. Type command:
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt
    3. Add burg repository:
    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bean123ch/burg/ubuntu lucid main"
    4. And update:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    5. Install burg
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install burg
    6. In appearing questions press ENTER every time. If you will be asked for confirm to remove your current GRUB, click on "Yes" for removing GRUB2.
    7. Install burg to HDD:
    Code:
    sudo burg-install --boot-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
    If after step 7 in terminal appeared message "Installation finished, no errors occured" (or similar, don't remember), then continue. Else - this workaround not for you
    8. Reboot computer.
    9. In grub console type comand:
    Code:
    set root=(hd0,5)/boot/burg
    and press ENTER.
    10.
    Code:
    linux /boot/vmlin
    press TAB - for complete comand and after it append it with this:
    Code:
    root=/dev/sda5
    In result you must enter something like this:
    Code:
    linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.6.18-194.ubuntu root=/dev/sda5
    and press ENTER.
    11. Enter this comand:
    Code:
    initrd /boot/initrd
    then press TAB for completing comand and ENTER for it applying.
    12. Enter "boot" end press ENTER.
    If all is correct you will be boot to your ubuntu. If so, then:
    13. Repeat steps 3-6.
    14. Run comand:
    Code:
    sudo burg-install /dev/sda
    15. ?????
    16. Profit.

    This helped for me. Now I have dual boot windows and Ubuntu. Please, correct me if I somwhere wrong... I'm very want to sleep, deep night now in my country))

    @Zoltor: good job
    I think that BURG too is based on GRUB1.99, so you should definitely report the bug against GRUB2.00 here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...grub2/+filebug
