Grub 1.5 Error 22 Partition Deleted on Netbook.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 29, 2010
Ok so I originally had Windows XP and Ubuntu NBR installed on my netbook. I decided I didn't want to go with Ubuntu NBR so I just set to default grub to windows so I could worry about removing Ubuntu later.
I then installed Jolicloud(a netbook optimized version of ubuntu) through a windows xp installer and quite liked it, so much so that I quickly fired up gparted and removed the ubuntu partition.
The issue now is I can't get the computer to boot, full stop.
I just run into the error:
I know this is because I have removed the partition, is there any way I can restore the mbr for my windows partition?
I have a usb which I have tried running: Freedos, Windows 98 boot cd, super grub disk.
But have had no success in fixing my mbr.
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated asap for university.
Thanks in advance, lszanto
[SOLVED] Overwriting the Ubuntu 64 bit partition with installation of 32 bit version
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 11, 2011
Hello. I just installed Ubuntu 64 bit 11.04 on my new PC and I'm not very happy with it.
Found out that installing video drivers is a drag everytime a new kernel version comes around, and with the 32 bit version everything seems just easier. And I need Ubuntu to work with the development of intense graphic applications, which should be better to work on a 32 bit environment.
So here is my question: is it possible to overwrite the existing Ubuntu installed with another installation of it, now with 32-bit instead of 64? I don't want to keep using the 64 bit one, so I am just fine with deleting it.
Thanks for the attention, sorry for my horrible english.
How do I remove Ubuntu without a partition of windows?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 4, 2008
I'm not the most tech-savvy but I know a decent amount. Here's my problem: My friend told me he had an amazing operation system (Ubuntu) that was just like windows. (I know most people don't like it but it works just fine for gamers). So, i let him install it.
Now the problem is, he has no idea how to remove it. My games don't work on it and I cannot even connect to my wireless Internet. How do I remove it, it seems as though there is no partition of my windows. Is it possible to remove it or am I stuck with Ubuntu?
I do have an XP install disc that just crashes when I try to use it.
Ubuntu Error Logs

NOTE: Google Chrome is having some issues with drop-down lists and I can't see them, would a mod please change the prefix to the appropriate one?I Think [Ubuntu] is good enough, but if there's a better one... Thanks.
So I just got a crash with some numbers and a "not enough swap space" error, and I'm wondering if there's an error log that Ubuntu wrote somewhere. Any help? I think it's an OS issue and not a program issue.
Thanks in advance.

I was trying to dual boot windows XP pro with ubuntu hardy heron (ubuntu installed first) and I used this guide: http://apcmag.com/how_to_dual_boot_l...lled_first.htm . I thought everything was fine, windows was installed, then I went into Gparted (GNOME partition editor) everything looked to be fine, I flagged the ubuntu partition as the "boot" partition and made sure that the "boot" flag was off the windows partition, then took the Gparted dvdr out restarted and I get this message:

From there I cant press anything, cant hit escape, cant type anything, what could be wrong?
Ubuntu Error: autorunning software Permission denied
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 24, 2009
I will keep this short. New to Linux/Ubuntu.
I bought a used HP W Ubuntu 8.04. I want to install
my wireless adapter software but keep getting an error
message that says: Error autorunning software. Error
starting auto run program Permission denied.
I suspect this is because the software was written for
Windows and cant run on Linux. I also think this
computer was part of a network and I need to
change those settings. I am kind of new at all of this
How do I get my Linksys software to run, and how do I
change my computer to run off a wireless router.

Triple boot: XP, FC6 and Ubuntu: Error!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 22, 2007
This is my current filesystem settings (i know it's trashy but i didn't think it through before setting it up):
/dev/sda1 - XP C:
/dev/sda2 - XP D:
/dev/sda3 - Fedora Core 6's /boot mount point
- /dev/sda5 - FC6 /
- /dev/sda6 - Ubuntu /
- /dev/sda7 - swap
The grub menu.lst was auto-generated by the ubuntu installer. All works well, except when i want to boot fedora, it says something about 'can't find LABEL /ubuntu'. I've also tried editing editing the FC6 entry so it resembles with ubuntu's (got the UUID from fstab) but this generated a kernel panic. These are the entries:
title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.20-15-generic
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-15-generic root=UUID=12c8a11c-ff66-48a1-b16e-037cc8f955b0 ro splash
# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for an existing
# linux installation on /dev/sda5.
