Fedora 20: How to boot YUMI via fedora 20 grub2?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 29, 2014
I am not using EFI/UEFI. I have a functional YUMI - a bootable usb. I cant boot directly to usb on my neighbor laptop. The laptop has EFI/UEFI features but it is disabled. Currently my partitions are:
sda1 fedora20 /boot (ext4)
sda2 fedora20 / (ext4)
sda3 windows7 (ntfs)
sda4 data (ntfs)
I wanted to add a menu entry to fedora20 grub2 so that i could boot my usb through fedora20 grub2. It is like plug my bootable usb -> power on -> fedora menu shows then i select yumi boot to usb -> then yumi menu shows -> then select systemrescuecd (something like that).
How to boot Slackware via PXE ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 15, 2007
I just succeeded in booting the new Alien BOB's wonderful pxe installer :
And now i want to boot a diskless using a nfs root. I installpkg -root /nfsroot all needed files (/a /l /n package series).
And this is where i'm stuck. I think i have to do a new initrd, and make some changes to /tftpboot/slack/pxelinux.cfg/default
I already did that :
default linux initrd=initrd.img load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 nfsroot=192.168.223.1:/nfsroot rw
But when i boot i got a kernel panic unable to mount rootfs blahblah.
So is the new initrd the answer ?
Do i have to compile a more generic kernel on my main machine, in order to mkinitrd/transfer it on the diskless ?
Keep on slackin'

Quadboot Ubuntu / Kubuntu 11.10, PCLinuxOS 2011 and Fedora 16... GRUB2 Help
- date: December 5, 2011
Ello.. I'm making a quad boot system with 6 partitions (1 is swap, 4 is main os'es and 5th is a testing part for the trying of other os).
I knew something like this would happen because since PCLOS uses GRUB Legacy it'd cause some commotion, but how do I get it to boot in this condition?

fixing boot/mbr via linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 19, 2009
I recently got wiped out by a virus/trojan in windows xp. When i try to reinstall all i get is a bluescreen with error code 0x00000078 (0xf78d663c,0xc0000034,0x00000000, 0x00000000). I assumed this meant a bad mbr and or boot.ini. I've managed to fix the mbr but no clue how to create a new boot.ini. I do not have a linux live cd so had to install full version of slackware to try and remedy this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Can't boot Ubuntu via USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2012
I have been trying to boot Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Mint LXDE, openSUSE, Fedora, and so on, via USB on my recently built machine using the Universal USB Installer (the most recent version) which has never let me down in the past. I tell my computer to boot from the USB, it does, the Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Mint LXDE/other options come up, I choose the one that allows me to simply try them, stuff starts loading that a newbie like me cannot decipher, and then a blank screen. I left my desktop running for several minutes each time, but nothing. Strangely enough, when using the exact same method with Puppy Linux, it works fine. They also boot up fine on my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop that is older than three years.
My specs are:
Intel Core i5 2500K Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 8Gb (2x4Gb) Corsair Vengeance @ 1600Mhz 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM Gainward GeForce GTX 570 Golden Sample Antec TruePower New Modular 650W Lian-Li PC-K63B First Knight Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
How boot to "maintenance mode"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 12, 2008
Occasionally, during boot of Gutsy, I will see a message that fsck is being "forced." Sometimes it finds things to fix and sometimes it says fsck must be run in maintenance mode--and leaves the screen at a maintenance mode prompt.
Is there any way to boot straight into this mode instead of it progressing to the login GUI?
Is this the same as what used to be called single-user mode?
Unable to boot Ubuntu via grub
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 29, 2008
Hello. I'm having some problems configuring my GRUB boot loader to get me into Ubuntu.
IDE hard disk with Solaris
SATA disk with two partitions:
IDE slave, which is empty
I get the following error when trying to boot Ubuntu:
Grub Error 13: "Invalid or unsupported executable format"
Here is my /boot/grub/menu.lst file:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.

# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img

[SOLVED] How do I add Opensuse to Grub2 menu in a triple boot setup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 19, 2013
My triple boot setup consists of Fedora 18, Windows 7 and Opensuse 12.3 on 3 separate hard drives.
HD1: Windows 7 - sda
HD2: Fedora 18 - sdb
HD3: Opensuse 12.3 - sdc
I have installed Opensuse on sdc and the bootloader into /. I have rebooted my system after installation and only have Windows 7 and Fedora in the Grub2 menu, I would like to add Opensuse to menu.
Can someone maybe walk me through how this can be done or point me to a tutorial that can help me do this?
Thank you in advance.
