Making my own boot CD, with GRUB?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 7, 2010
I'm trying to make my own boot CD with different linux distros and tools, the disc is going to contain:
Lucid Puppy 5.11 (Live)
Damn small linux (Live)
Arch linux net install
Total size: about 600 MB
So I need a menu too choose from the above options on start up, and I figured I would try to use GRUB legacy for this, and I need a way to make GRUB run from the cd, thats my problem. I've tried experimenting with the older Ubuntu live cds, but when i start too delete the Ubuntu files (which I don't need) I end up with a non-functioning filesystem manifest, so the .iso is non-bootable. I need a way to place GRUB legacy on the CD, if it's possible.
Grub Rescue, can't boot into live cd etc etc.

I have a notebook (HP 8510p). On this unit is Windows 7 64bit installed on a partition, on another partition I had an old version of ubuntu.
I decided to install the latest version of ubuntu by using a usb stick, and overwriting the old ubuntu install (following the installer).
I succesfully installed, was asked to reboot and ended up with "error: no such partition. grub rescue>"
For some strange reason, I cant boot ununtu from the usb stick (I get stuck at the graphical loading screen.) so I basicly can't do any of the answers that are posted in the average grub rescue thread. I don't have a cd/dvd drive in my notebook. Reinstalling ubuntu on the usb stick and trying again on my notebook also doens't work.
Error: No Such Device/Grub Rescue Can't Boot Into Anything!

I decided I wanted to try out Linux for a while on my primary laptop - sort of. I chose to install it to my Samsung 640GB drive that is enclosed in a NexStar CX enclosure. Bad idea!
Everything went fine at first, I created a 10GB ext4 partition to install Ubuntu on, and a 4GB swap partition. Everything seemed to install find until it was time to restart. On restart I chose to boot from the external "USB Hard Disk" which triggers a screen showing "Windows is loading files..." and a progress bar that fills twice before directing back to the HP startup/POST screen and then not long after a black screen that shows the following message;
error: no such device: 59477a79-f8aa-44f2-9687-c17be4e944b4
The worst part is that I can't even boot back into the Notebook hard drive, where XP is installed. I guess it's something to do with a bootloader problem?
Anyways, I'm now desperately searching for help on how to recover access back to XP, as we

Can't boot into ubuntu, grub error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 3, 2012
I just installed ubuntu 12.04 on an external hard disk but grub was not configured properly dusring install so i have been unable to boot into ubuntu yet.
I manually partitioned the external 1tb hard disk as follows --
970GB -- ntfs
200MB -- /boot
25GB -- /
2GB -- swap
3GB -- unpartitioned
I tried using Boot-Repair but it did not fix the problem. Grub gives the error "no such partition", halts at gub recovery>
this is the info gathered by boot-repair -- http://paste.ubuntu.com/1073568/

I can not boot into my Windows7 or Ubuntu Linux 12.04.3, after deleting partitions.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2013
I'm very new to this Forum and begging for help with my problem.
First time trying to install Ubuntu Linux 12.04.3 to dual boot with my Windows7 64bit on an Asus K55A laptop.
After installing the Linux from Live CD, I didn't see dual-boot. It booted to windows7.
I changed the Booting order in the BIOS and booted to Ubuntu, used gparted to partition the Single hard disk with partitioned into two (System and Data).
In the process, I've damaged both OS's (Windows7 & Ubuntu). Now I cann't boot into any of them.
Attached a snapshoot from the "Try Ubuntu"; I used gparted.
I used Testdisk as recommended in this Forum to recover the Partitions as shown on the attachment.
I've also use "Boot-Repair" as recommended here but still can not boot into Windows or Ubuntu.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
Linux Mint 14 rewrote my MBR so I can't boot into win8
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 13, 2013
I am trying to dual boot onto my desktop. My main os is win8 and i wanted to install linux mint 14 on the side.
I ran self-boot repair and it said it was successful. So i restarted and there was no win8 option.
here is my pastebin generated URL:
Before i installed linux I had three partitions:
500 mb boot partition i think? something along those lines
200gb for win8
200gb for linux mint
rest unpartitioned space
I selected the option to install linux mint ALONGSIDE win8 and selected the 200gb partition for linux mint. BUT linux mint decided to rewrite my mbr haha
Any help would be highly appreciated
thanks in advance!
[SOLVED] Grub Error 2 while trying to boot into Gentoo
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 11, 2008
Hey everyone. I wanted to try out Gentoo to see what all the fuss was about, so I've installed it on a separate partition, and edited my menu.lst file within my Ubuntu partition. The goal is to use configfile to launch Gentoo's grub.conf file, and launch it from there.
Here is how the relavent partitions are set up:
/dev/sda2 ubuntu (flagged bootable)
/dev/sda4 gentoo (tried boot flagged/unflagged)
Within grub, booting gentoo:
title Gentoo Linux
With this, I'm getting "Grub Error 2: Bad file or directory type" when selecting that option. I've also tried using the interactive mode in grub, and it gives the same error for trying to autocomplete "configfile (hd0,3)/".
Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? I haven't seen anything on the web or any forums.
