    Error: Out of Partition

    I am getting this error message shortly after Grub 1.99-12 Ubuntu 5.1 begins the boot:
    "error: Out of Partition.
    press any key to continue..."

    Ubuntu 11.10 boots successfully.

    My install went fine. Ubuntu 11.4 > 11.10 > 12.4. I run out of disk space trying to install KDE. I restored from a backup I had of my 11.10. Here are how I remember the commands:
    sudo dd if=/dev/sda2 bs=512k | gzip | dd of=UbuntuBack bs=512k
    dd if=UnbuntuBack bs=512k | gunzip | sudo of=/dev/sda2 bs=512k

    After restore. I got the Out of Partition message. Pressing enter started system. I am running system now.

    Next, I booted up in the recovery mode.
    did check harddrive.
    rebuilt grub

    No change.

    I noticed this incident.

    Re: Error: Out of Partition

    I thought that was a grub mismatch between MBR and install versions of grub. Did you reinstall grub to MBR with the a liveCD from 11.10? Or chroot into install so it installs the correct version internally.

    But I have this in my notes also.
    Out of disk error add to grub install disk-module=ata or use Boot-Repair ATA Disk support

    Your hard drive is small for two operating systems?


    Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates. Is part of Boot-Repair:

    Ok. That's the problem. I installed 12.4 then reverted back to 11.10 via DD. This would give a mismatch between the Ubuntu partition and Grub.

    Yes. I'm running on thinkpad t20 with 12gig hd. It's a test system to have access to these systems.
