Windows 7 with Ubuntu : Error incompatible license Grub rescue
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 9, 2012
I work on windows 7 but I needed linux for my studies so I installed it on a partition of my hard disc.
Yesterday I downloaded an update of Ubuntu and in the evening I realized that my computer could neither start on Windows nor on Ubuntu.
When I start it, I see the usual first screen on which I can press "F2" for Setup, and then I have a black screen with :
"Error incompatible license
written on it.
I read on some forums that some people already had this kind of problem but contrary to my, they were used to linux and I did not really understand what things like a "boot" are.
The thing is that the files I want to rescue are on Windows, if I need to delete Ubuntu from my pc, it is not a problem (I would like to be able to use again the partition one what I installed Ubuntu if it is possible.)
A friend's dad thinks it is a problem linked with the "Master Boot Record" but he was'nt here to solve the problem, so i
Ubuntu and Windows 8 dual boot on HP Pavilion G7 LockedESP detected error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 4, 2013
This may help if you bump into this problem.
When installing Ubuntu 12.10 on a HP Pavilion g7-2242sf, I had this error.
An error occurred during the repair.
Locked-ESP detected. You may want to retry after creating a /boot/efi partition (FAT32, 100MB~250MB, start of the disk, boot flag). This can be performed via tools such as gParted. Then select this partition via the [Separate /boot/efi partition:] option of [Boot Repair].
Quick answer and work around : the problem is not that the partition is locked, the problem comes from the grubx64.efi file that is corrupted in the the EFI partition, at place /EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi.
Just suppress this file, then make a Boot Repair reparation : the whole repair should then be a success, and the dual boot should work.
(if you don't know how to suppress this file, see here after, the explanation).
I installed the Ubuntu 12.10 version with the "other way" option, with r

I installed ubuntu 11.4 on windows7 (64 bit) in C:/ubuntu. Everything was working fine. I was able to work in both ubuntu and windows whenever required. Last night my laptop battery died and when I restart the system I am able to log in to windows7 but cant log into ubuntu.
On startup I am getting boot selection, I select ubuntu and then can see
1. ubuntu, linux 2.6.38-8-generic ~ default selected
2. ubuntu in recovery mode
3. windows 7 on /dev/sda1
4. windows 7 on /dev/sda2
5. windows recovery environment on /dev/sda4
when i select the default ubuntu from grub boot loader I am getting error like

Installing Ubuntu from Windows. Error "no root file system is defined..."
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 14, 2010
I am trying to install Ubuntu.
I have Windows XP and I want to have a dual boot system.
Since I dont have a CD drive and my BIOS fails to start from USB, I am using Unetbootin to install Ubuntu.
I follow the steps commonly recommended.
1) first with Part Magic I resized the Windows partition and created unalocated space after.
Besides this, there is also a second partition after, and a third one (for windows recovery)
2) Second, I boot the LiveCD of Ubuntu. In this environment, there is a linux installer, which I used.
3) However, every time it comes to the option for the partition to install, it gives me the same error, always, whatever partition or free space I try to use. No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu
What should I do?
I dont want to use Wubi, because I want to be independent from Windows. And Unetbootin offers this option, without the use of a CD or USB drive.
GRUB error 13 AND 17 trying to dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 2000 pro
- date: March 19, 2010
Interesting problem, this. I decided that Windows 2000 pro was getting too fat and old for my old machine (AMD 1..2GHz w/ 256Mb RAM) so I installed Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy (Good OS 3.1 dist.) on a 20Gb drive I had laying around. I left Windows 2000 pro on the old drive and just selected "use entire drive" to format and install to the new HDD. Also, I switched the jumpers so that the new ext3 drive would be primary master and old NTFS drive would now be primary slave. Now when I boot to GRUB menu, selecting Ubuntu results in GRUB Error 17, and selecting Windows 2000 Pro results in GRUB Error 13. Here's the kicker. If I use a Windows 2000 CD to boot from, then exit out of that menu and select Ubuntu in GRUB, it is able to load just fine. Here is fdisk and menu.lst:
:/boot/grub$ sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 20.5 GB, 20520493056 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2494 cylinders

Installation of Ubuntu renders Windows 7 unbootable with GRUB error message
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 22, 2015
I recently installed Ubuntu 14.10 over an old linux installation, which is on a separate partition of my HDD with Windows 7 on the other partition. Unfortunately, the replacement of GRUB with a newer version has made my Windows 7 installation unbootable.
When I boot the computer, the GRUB menu comes up, and I am able to select between my current Ubuntu install, an old Win 7 install that is on a separate hard drive, and my desired Win 7 install. Both the Ubuntu and old Win 7 options work fine, however the desired Win 7 install results in a "grub_term_highlight_color" not found error message. (This is after I select the option in the GRUB menu) After extensive research online and in the forums, I know that this error message is due to a bad installation of GRUB, and so I followed directions to fix the GRUB install, however the problem was not solved. My current suspicion is that the current Win 7 loader has an old version of GRUB that refuses to be updated, however I cannot see
