BOOT/GRUB/menu.lst Where is it in 10.10?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 29, 2010
I've worked with 8.04 and 9.10 of Ubuntu.
Since I use Grub to dual boot with Windows XP on the same drive I want it to default to Windows XP on the first line, and scroll down if I want to go into Ubuntu 10.10.
And I did this by modifying menu.lst file in the BOOT/GRUB directory but it is not there in my 10.10.
Where did it go and/or what does 10.10 use now to menu list the boot OS?
[SOLVED] adding Ubuntu boot entry into openSUSE GRUB menu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 25, 2010
Greeting to everyone! My first post here, so i couple days ago i repartitioned my hard-drive to tripple boot windows XP, Ubuntu and openSUSE. I installed Windows XP first on the 1st partition, then Ubuntu on the 2nd partition, and Suse on the third partition.
My problem was that Suse GRUB takes charge, and it shows entries to boot into both Suse itself and XP but not Ubuntu. Initially, i thought if i re-install Ubuntu onto the 2nd partition, Ubuntu GRUB will take over and show all three OS on the menu. So i did that and reboot but once again Suse GRUB shows up with only the options for Suse and XP but Ubuntu is no where to be found.
So can anyone kindly show me the proper way to add Ubuntu boot entry to the /boot/grub/menu.lst ?
I tried to follow instruction on this thread over at Suse forum http://forums.opensuse.org/install-b...untu-grub.html
but for some reason (unknown to me) it didn't work. However, Ubuntu boot entry DID shown up but when i try to boot Ubuntu, GRUB ga
Dual boot (Ubuntu 12.04 x64 & Win 7 Pro x64) grub menu error: "Invalid EFI file path"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 3, 2013
Hi all, I'm new to Ubuntu/linux and I'm trying to fix a problem I'm having with the Grub menu.
I have Windows 7 Pro (x64) and Ubuntu 12.04 (x64) installed on separate 120GB SSDs.
I installed Ubuntu first and have its EFI entry listed as first in my boot settings, which loads
Grub properly, but when I choose my Win 7 entry I get the error message: "Invalid EFI file path",
and it returns to the menu. Ubuntu and all the other options work properly, and when I change
the Boot order to my Win 7 drive, Windows 7 boots properly by itself.
I ran boot-repair and by using the recommended settings and clicking 'no' for when it
asks whether my 120GB disk is removable (presumably it was referring to my Win 7 drive),
I was met with another error message:
GPT detected. Please create a BIOS-boot partition (> 1 Mb unformatted file system, bios_grub
flag). This can be performed via tools such as GParted. Then try again. Alternatively you can retry
after activating the [Separate/boot/efi
10.10 Where's my /boot/grub/menu.lst file gone?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 23, 2010
Yesterday I installed 10.10 as dual boot with Puppy Linux on my Sony PCG-FX109K laptop. On this machine I need to boot with acpi=off which I can do by editing the grub menu when booting. Because there is a problem getting the boot sequence past the login sequence (see another post) I am trying to access the /boot/grub/menu.lst file via Puppy Linux. But the grub folder has 190 files in it, most of which have a headphone icon (do I need all these?) and there is no menu.lst file. I have 10.04 on my desktop machine and it has a /boot/grub/menu.lst file. Has 10.10 done something different?
All I want to do is include acpi=off in whatever file boots 10.10 so that I don't have to edit the grub file every time I switch on the laptop.
Ubuntu 10.10.boot/grub/menu.lst missing
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 10, 2011
Hey guys, i am pretty new to editing this boot thingie. I updated ubuntu regulary yesterday and now it shows me 2 ubuntu boot options and 1 windows instead of the actual 1 ubuntu and 1 windows.
I checked on the net and they said go to /grub/boot/menu.lst but there is no such file
If i use the gedit it opens a brand new file for me.
The laptop still boots as of now. I just want to remove that extra ubuntu boot option as it is annoying as if i have 2 ubuntu installations on my drive
a point by point description would be rather helpful.
Ubuntu 9.10 changing Grub Menu.lst
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 8, 2010
Does anyone have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on their hard drive with 2 or 3 other Distros? Life was simple before Ubuntu 9.10, just change the /boot/grub/menu.lst file and you're on your way. Now it's change a file, then run an update-grub command that updates another config file. Ok, enough of my complaning. Back to my question.. Does anyone have a sample /etc/default/grub file that has multiple Distros on it?
I don't want to have to run VirtualBox in order to use other Distros on my Hard Drive.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS: Grub Menu Missing
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 17, 2013
This is a near duplicate of the closed Grub Menu Missing, so I have to spin up a new thread. Unlike the closed thread, I have multiple OSes and the menu is still missing. At boot time, all I get is a purple screen until login.
The installation has both Ubuntu 12.04 and Fedora 17. I have not [yet] added x64 flavors of Ubuntu and Fedora, the Windows OSes (XP, Vista, and 7), nor the BSD OSes (Net and Free).
Ubuntu is managing GRUB from the MBR (installed on /dev/sda). Fedora had its boot loader installed on its partition.
I've re-generated the grub.cfg:
$ sudo apt-get clean
$ sudo apt-get autoclean
$ sudo apt-get autoremove
$ sudo update-grub2

Ubuntu 12.04: Grub menu disappeared after upgrade

I had a working dual boot configuration with Vista and Ubuntu 11.10. I upgraded to 12.04 and I no longer get the grub menu on startup - Ubuntu is booted automatically.

I installed Python 2.4 and then removed already present Python 2.6. After restart, when i selected the working kernel, that white ubuntu symbol splashed and screen went black with two small lines at the top.. it doesnt go beyond that. Please help me. I tried selecting other kernels. It did not work. I used "nomodeset" by editing the the kernel at the grub.. I could just start bash..
