GRUB hard disk error on fresh ubuntu RAID install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 28, 2008
Clean install of Gutsy Server, set up partitions manually for softwareRAID like so:
Drive 1: auto partitioned into 2 partitions, root and swap
drive 2: same as drive one
changed all 4 partitions to "use as physical volume for RAID"
disks 3 and 4: one partition, use for RAID.
set up RAID as RAID1, 3 different devices: 1 for root, 1 for swap(disks 1 and 2), 1 for home (on disks 3 and 4)
went back to partitioner, set raid device 1, which happened to be the home partition, to mount as /home
set raid device 2 to mount as /
set raid device 3 to mount as swap
wrote changes to disk, finished installation, and got the "GRUB hard disk error"
I know from googling that this means grub can't map the disk geometry, which isn't very suprising.
Booted into knoppix and both RAID devices are there, and root has all the stuff in it it's supposed to have.
Did i do something wrong? possibly RAIDing the swap is wrong? What do i do next?
GRUB install problems... (post windows install on ubuntu)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 20, 2009
sorry if this is in the wrong forum...
Hey guys. Fairly new user to Ubuntu though I've used it a few times over the years to save my data from Windows crashes.
Have been using latest Ubuntu build (8.10) exclusively for 3 weeks. Till I just reinstalled Windows XP...
Lost GRUB, so I can't boot into Ubuntu. I'm posting this off my Live! CD (Ubuntu 8.10). Followed the first two sets of instructions at:
But couldn't get either to work. I've included the terminal outputs below. Any help would be sooo appreciated. Thanks.
using the 1st method given:
grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
grub> root (hd0,7)
grub> setup (hd0)
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... yes
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage2" exists... yes
Checking if "/boot/grub/e2fs_stage1_5" exists... yes
Running "embed /boot/grub/e2fs_stage1_5 (hd0)"... 16 sectors are embedded.
[SOLVED] Before Install: Slackware over Ubuntu (Grub to LILO), Dual w/Vista: LILO question
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 1, 2010
Guys, much because of the help from you all on here, I am basically ready to install! Please keep in mind I am a complete Linux Newbie (green!)
I have: Dell 1545 160GB HD, 2.16Ghz, 3GB RAM system, currently with Ubuntu(9.10) installed along with Vista via GRUB.
Planning to simply put Slackware into the Ubuntu partition (thereby deleting Ubuntu) and install LILO during Slack install.
Q: Will this delete GRUB and simply allow me to select Slack/Vista from LILO? (which would be ideal I suppose). The Slackware HOW-TO said that "Installing LILO can be dangerous. If you make a mistake it's possible to
make your hard drive unbootable. If you're new to Linux, it might be a
good idea to skip LILO installation and use the bootdisk to start your
system at first"
Should I worry about this?
GRUB install to root of Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 5, 2009
I am trying to install GRUB to the root of Ubuntu during the installation of Ubuntu. When I get to the step where I press the Advanced button the installer returns a value of (hd0). My system's disk partition layout is as follows:
sda1 NTFS Windows XP Pro
sda5 ext3 / MEPIS 8 Linux
sda7 ext3 / for Ubuntu install
sda8 ext3 /home for Ubuntu install
sda9 ext3 /home for MEPIS 8 Linux
If I want to install GRUB to the / of Ubuntu would I enter /dev/sda7 in the GRUB install response box? Will all versions of the Ubuntu installer accept and carry out user input into this response box? I've read about there being an alternative CD. Would I need to have the alternative CD to install GRUB to the root partition?
I want to use NTLDR as my primary bootloader. There is a freeware utility called BootPart that can configure BOOT.INI to load Linux using the NTLDR. It handles everything that needs to be done to configure NTLDR to chainload th

UPDATE #3: I have got GRUB to install... my bad since my experience with Ubuntu is very limited. I had to point the GRUB install to /dev/sdg manually then it worked... doh!
Thank you for all your help!
I managed to get rid of the error by unplugging the USB CD ROM and disabling the Floppy from the boot sequence.
Now i am taken to BusyBox after the boot. I have tried all steps in this post and this post, but to no avail.
Any suggestions welcome. Insanity is setting in now after 8 hrs of this game!
I got the GRUB to install on /dev/sdg which is where it should go. Now on after post I get "error: fd0 read error" per the info in this thread. I have a P5K Deluxe mobo like the last post in the attached.
I have disabled the floppy from the boot sequence in the BIOS, but now after the above error the system boots into BusyBox.
Prior to this, the box was running Ubuntu 11.04 with s
[SOLVED] Ubuntu 12.04 installation failing grub install
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 3, 2012
I don't know what to do with it anymore, every single release of Ubuntu (since I've been using it from 10.04) has had installation problems.
Right now on 12.04 the issues rise to a climax.
Let me sketch the situation:
I'm trying to get dualboot (windows 7 64bit sp1 + ubuntu 12.04 64bit) working on an m17x-R1 alienware notebook.
Here's the hardware:
2x Nvidia GTX20m in SLIan Nvidia 9800m (disabled in bios)2x 320GB HDD in raid 0an infrared receiver
* (I listed the video cards because Ubuntu had issues with that before)
First I backup all my files, then I reinstall windows 7 (deleting all partitions - including the ubuntu ones that I had) because I want a nice clean computer.
Windows 7 cleans the partitions, installs nice and easy. I already had my ubuntu live-usb made with 12.04 on it.
The Ubuntu couldn't boot to live-usb, it gave a kernel panic. Apparently it had to do with the infrared receiver inside my notebook. Long story short, I found the b
GRUB error 25 on usb ubuntu persistent install
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 15, 2008
I've been trying unsuccessfully to run Hardy on my usb drive as a Live USB with persistence. I followed the instructions >here<, except i used the Hardy .iso and changed all instances of "Gutsy Gibbon" to "Hardy Heron" in the menu.lst that was supplied. When I boot from the USB, I get to GRUB stage 1.5, and then get Error 25. I've tried a search, but none of the scenarios seemed to be the same. How do I fix this? Thanks!
Ubuntu grub don't let windows 7 sp1 to install
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 18, 2011
I have recently downloaded the leaked windows 7 sp1 RTM version and got an error
0x800f0a12 and now in this thread in the final reply i got the reason why.
i tried to find a way to file a bug report at launchpad but since i'm not in ubuntu now and for the time being i have removed grub so i can't find a way to do it properly
so if any one eles can do it it would be great and thanks in advance.
