Ubuntu / CentOS / Grub issue
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 15, 2009
I've had Ubuntu installed on my system for awhile now and i recently installed CentOS. I elected to let CentOS install it's own Grub (probably my first mistake). After that, now I don't have an option to boot in to Ubuntu when I start the computer up.
What do i need to edit or change in order to get this back to normal.
Here's what i've got right now.
My original Grub.conf from Ubuntu. (note that the partition that says Ubuntu 7.10 was replaced with CentOS. Ubuntu 7.10 is no longer on the machine)

Hi. I am using the latest version of Ubuntu Linux. I've been using it for about a month. One day, as i booted up my computer, something didn't go as planed. It started to boot up, but it went to some screen that said:

Minimal BASH-like editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device, file completions.
Sh:grub> (it wants me to type something here)"
How to i get rid of that screen. How to i get onto my Ubuntu Linux. HELP!

Software RAID, Ubuntu, and Grub problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 9, 2006
Yesterday I attempted to install Ubuntu 6.06 server on my Dell Poweredge 2400. My hardware RAID controller is broken, so on the Ubuntu partitioning manager I created a software RAID-0 array. Everything installs fine until I get to the boot loaders. Neither GRUB nor LILO would install, so I carried on without a bootloader install. The machine rebooted after it had finished installed and eventually I got to the GRUB> prompt, from where I have no idea what to do. I had a look on the net and I've found out that it is a problem with software RAID and grub, they don't like each other apparently.
Can anyone suggest a way I can get GRUB onto this system, or an alternative?
DualBooting With Ubuntu Using Grub 2 And A Truecrypt Windows Installation
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 29, 2011
I've been trying to get a dual-boot system with a truecrypted Windows partition and grub 2 in combination to work successfully and to date, I haven't had much luck. I'm using the grub 2 version from Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS.
I understand from searching through Google that there is presently no easy way to chainload the Truecrypt boot loader from Grub 2 in a similiar way that was done with Grub 1. This is because the Grub 2 payload is much larger and actually overwrites some of the Truecrypt boot loader, preventing it from starting.
A workaround is to boot the Truecrypt recovery ISO from Grub 2. This has been reported to work and is well documented on the forum thread below:-
However, I haven't been able to get this to work. In particular, the section shown below for adding a custom item to the Grub 2 menu is where the problems start.
Dual Boot: No Ubuntu in Grub
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 7, 2013
Hi, I have Acer Aspire 5560G model with AMD A6 Processor. I have created bootable USB stick with latest Ubuntu 12.10 available as of today.
My Laptop has pre installed Windows 7. Using bootable USB stick, I installed "Ubuntu alongside windows". But on reboot I do not see an option to boot in Ubuntu.
I googled and read many issues with EFI and other problems people see, but still not clear what exactly will solve the issue.
Not sure if my laptop has EFI or BIOS, but there is no option of choosing between two. I also do not see any option of secure-boot in my firmware settings. Its a new model and I think my laptop has EFI and no option to use BIOS.
I have tried boot-repair from "Try Ubuntu", but still I do not see Ubuntu option in Grub.

I also tried EasyBCD and added entry for Ubuntu. This shows ubuntu option at boot time, but when I select this option, it does not boot, and gives me a "grub>" promp
How do I uninstall Ubuntu and Grub loader from a dual boot system?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 12, 2008
I have dual booted Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron onto my old pc that already has Windows XP home user installed. Before I install Ubuntu to my main computer I want to know how to uninstall Ubuntu & the Grub loader, leaving the Windows XP intact and working.
The computer is a home built pc;
AMD Sempron 2600+ 1.6GHz processor
Maxtor 6Y120MO 120 Gb HDD
1 Gb RAM
Windows XP SP3 on 90% of the HDD & Ubuntu 8.04.1 on 10%
If uninstalling Ubuntu is difficult or inadvisable, would I be better off purchasing a second HDD for my main computer and install Ubuntu onto that?
Ubuntu without Grub boot loader????
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 17, 2009
I am very new in linux so please try to be "basic" with me
I recently removed ubuntu from my portable hard drive, and then had grub loading problems.
Last time i tried to do this the grub files somehow got half installed on my internal hdd's mbr and half on the external portable hard drive. Because of that when i booted without the phd plugged in this would show:
Grub loading stage 1.5
I fixed that and now i am wondering if it is possible to install Ubuntu 9.04 on my portable hard drive (which i frequently take out and carry around with me) so that when it is plugged in Ubuntu will boot and when the portable hard drive is unplugged the windows dual boot screen will show? Btw, I currently have a windows vista and windows 7 dual boot.
I have had experience in running Ubuntu persistently, and that is what i don't want to do.
If i am not being clear enough just post in something and i will try to answer it.
Thanks in advance,
