    Re: HOWTO: Restore GRUB (if your MBR is messed up)

    For anyone that reads this:
    Use this to find Grub!
    Code:
    find /boot/grub/stage1
    Then use the root command:
    Code:
    root (hd0,1)
    Then setup MBR HHD1:
    Code:
    setup (hd0)
    Quit:
    Code:
    quit
    Then reboot. Three Lines works every time. Even with other distros. Just so everyone knows.

    These three lines did not work for me. As Nicholas pointed out earlier in this thread, if you have a separate /boot partition, you need to use
    Code:
    find /grub/stage1
    since that is where the file is in that partition.

    Here's what worked for me on a 8.10 AMD_64 indstall following migration to a new hard drive:

    Boot live CD and mount the normal root partition at /mnt and the boot partition at /mnt/boot. This puts them in the same relation to each other as they will be in the running system:
    Code:
    root@ubuntu:~# df|grep sda
    /dev/sda6             30241928   4594572  24111144  17% /mnt
    /dev/sda5              1004024     94044    858976  10% /mnt/boot
    root@ubuntu:~#
    Execute Grub - (Commands I typed are bolded)

    grub>
    (Note that I had my old drive attached via an external USB enclosure and that's where the "(hd1,4)" entry came from.

    This left me able to boot. On the first boot the system locked up with a white screen. <ctrl><alt><delete> eventually took me back to the boot menu and when I tried booting Vista (which had always worked) It got to the progress bar stage and remained there for a long time (with the progress bar still active.) After power cycling the machine, It booted Vista normally, so the machine must have gotten into a bad state that a reboot would not clear.

    Following this, when I tried to boot Linux, it started and then dumped me into a command shell when 'fsck' was unable to check two drives. That was because the UUIDs for the drives in /etc/fstab did not match the new drive. I obtained the correct UUIDs using 'blkid', edited them into /etc/fstab and am not happily off and running.

    For reference, here is some other information that may help others who are struggling with this:

    Re: HOWTO: Restore GRUB (if your MBR is messed up)

    Notice for people who have problems with the "root" command:

    The disk and partition numbers start at 0, like numbers we use in real life. Some people are used to them starting at 1.

    So, you need to convert the device name under Linux to a GRUB device (no difference for SATA devices, all are hd, just get the numbers right):
    sda1 -> (hd0,0)
    hdb2 -> (hd1,1)
    sdc3 -> (hd2,2)

    Re: HOWTO: Restore GRUB (if your MBR is messed up)

    I really messed something up & need some help.

    I have a dual boot Ubuntu/XP PC. Ubuntu is 1st on the GRUB boot list & that HDD is also 1st boot in BIOS.

    So, here's what happened. I was given an external HDD that was formatted for Mac. I needed to reformat for NTFS. Somehow I couldn't do this in either Windows or Ubuntu using Gparted. So, I put the XP install disk in & went into it as if I was installing XP. I select the external HDD to format to NTFS. After it finished, it started installing XP. I thought it would pause 1st, so I panicked & hit Esc. Well, it must of erased something in GRUB because after it rebooted all it said after POST was... "A disk read error occurred. Press ctrl+alt+del to restart." Truth is, I'm not sure what happened but it would seem something happened to GRUB.

    After rethinking, I changed the HDD boot order in BIOS so the XP drive would be 1st & now, at least, XP does boot.

    So, after reading here, I'm not sure what to do. There are many options but as I'm not sure what exactly happened, I'm not sure which approach to take. There must be a way to analyze what changed after I formatted the external HDD & stopped the XP install process. I'm sure it has something to do with eithr GRUB or root but what?

    Please advise,
    George

    Re: HOWTO: Restore GRUB (if your MBR is messed up)

    This worked for me. Up & running!

    presence1960 wrote

    1. Boot your computer up with Ubuntu CD
    2. Open a terminal window or switch to a tty.
    3. Type sudo grub. Should get text of which last line is grub>
    4. Type "find /boot/grub/stage1". You'll get a response like "(hd0,1)".
    Use whatever your computer spits out for the following lines.
    5. Type "root (hd0,1)", or whatever your hard disk + boot partition
    numbers are for Ubuntu.
    6. Type "setup (hd0)", to install GRUB to MBR, or "setup (hd0,1)" or
    whatever your hard disk + partition # is, to install GRUB to a
    partition.
    7. Quit grub by typing "quit".
    8. Reboot and remove the bootable CD.

    7. Reboot.

    I may be missing your point though, if so, please forgive me
    Sorry to engage in thread necromancy, but I followed the directions to backup a system then restore it to another system. Well, I backed up just fine. I restored the file and totally hosed the target system. I now get:

    Error 15: File not found.
    Press any key to continue...

    To make matters worse, even though the BIOS settings has the cd drive set to position 1 in the boot priority, it won't boot from the cd. So, I can't even get to the desktop.

    When I press a key, a list of boot kernels is displayed. I try to boot from any of them. It just returns me back to the previous screen.

    I selected C for command-line, typed
    grub> find /boot/grub/stage1,
    I get
    grub> root (hd0,0).

    I type
    grub> setup (hd0,0)

    Geeky goop prints to the screen, but finally says "install grub succeeds". Try typing quit but that does nothing. So I reboot, and nothing has changed.

    I tell everyone, "if you're gonna do something, do it well." And I sure the hell did. The system is completely unusable. (I also say, "if it ain't broke, break it").

    I'm stumped on this one. All other directions I find assume that I can boot from the live cd, which I can't. Did I totally screw the pooch on this one? The pc has usb connections, but it's so old, I don't think it can be used to boot from.

    Any ideas?

    Re: HOWTO: Restore GRUB (if your MBR is messed up)

    @mjstelly:I got this error after trying to restore grub many times. After you find the correct entry, I think your problem lies in the UUID. in the grub> prompt, type uuid. Find out the uuid of your boot device.Write this down. Change all of the lines which make a mention of the UUID to the one. I was able to do this by using a live cd, but it doesnt seem like you are able to boot the live cd, so you will have to write it down. After that,just press b to boot, and it should work. Make sure you edit those entries once you get back in =]Also, dont forget to recreate the directories such as /sys and /proc if you are restoring system. You will end up in command line environment. Just restart after creating them and all will be fine.

    1. Boot your computer up with Ubunto CD
    2. Go through all the process until you reech "[!!!] Disk Partition"
    3. Select Manual Partition
    4. Mount your appropriate linux partions

    /
    /boot
    swap
    .....

    5. DO NOT FORMAT THEM.
    6. Finish the manual partition
    7. Say "Yes" when it asks you to save the changes
    8. It will give you errors saying that "the system couldn't install ....." after that
    9. Ignore them, keep select "continue" until you get back to the Ubuntu installation menu
    10. Jump to "Install Grub ...."
    11. Once it is finished, just restart your computer

    Good luck!.
    I could'nt understand step 4 and step 7.please explain tese step for me
    thanks

    I'm amazed of the length of this discussion, and the complexity of all the solutions presented. Here is a good one:
    1. Get a Debian netinst installer on http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/
    2. Boot it and choose the special entry for recovering
    3. When it offers you various choices, choose to install again Grub (there is a special entry for this)
    4. Reboot

    That's all! If you already did point 1, the rest should need less than one minute.

    Re: HOWTO: Restore GRUB (if your MBR is messed up)

    PartitionMagic screwed up my MBR after finishing a job formating an external HDD in Windows XP SP3 (never happened before) that lead to GRUB failing at stage 1.5, error 15. Thankfully I found this thread and I can say that post #2 was a lifesaver. Although, my boot partition was in /dev/sda6, hence my usage of "root (hd0,5)."
