After uninstalling Ubuntu, Windows 7 won't boot grub error.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 10, 2011
I had ubuntu installed on an external HDD, and Windows 7 on the internal. After trying out Ubuntu for a while, i decided to uninstall off my PC to later install it on an old Dell (which worked great).
Now whenever I turn on the computer it wont boot completely, giving me this error after verifying DMI pool data:
Error: No such device: b43acdf3-19cf-4da5-9fee-3d6dc7e876d6
grub rescue> _
This would also happen if i left the external HDD unplugged when booting the computer, fixed by just plugging it in, then it would let me choose which OS to use.
Now it just hangs there, same thing happens when i try to boot from any Windows dvd (Vista or 7)
and when I try to reinstall Ubuntu, it starts like normal, then the screen gets all glitchy, black with random colors scattered around the screen and freezes.
this is killing me!
Toshiba Qosmio x70 dualboot Windows 8 UEFI problems
- date: November 9, 2013
I can't boot the Kubuntu 13.10 from the DVD or an USB stick. Booting just freezes.
I've been looking at this thread hoping to make it work, but still no luck:
When I try to boot, i get just a blank screen after selecting any option from the Grub menu (even to check disk).
I've been playing with editing boot options. When I removed splash and noquiet and add nomodest and set [email protected]
, I was able to get some boot log data on the sreen. I took a photo when it froze, here it is:
Any help would be appreciated. If you need more data, just say so. Whoever helps me, you've got a beer.
Windows 8 UEFI boot broken, not fixed by bootrepair
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 28, 2013
I installed Ubuntu in dual-boot on my Windows 8 laptop. Everything worked fine.A few days ago I updated to Windows 8.1. Ubuntu stopped booting.No problem, I ran a live USB version of Ubuntu and ran boot-repair (taking into account that I was using UEFI). Linux booted correctly, but Windows boot got weird.
If I selected Windows Boot Manager at startup, the screen went black then jumped into GRUB. If I selected Windows Boot UEFI loader, I got the GRUB rescue screen.If I selected Windows UEFI bootmgfw.efi (created by boot-repair, I believe), Windows booted normally.This was annoying, so I ran boot-repair a few more times (why I didn't think to save the boot-info, I don't know), now Windows won't boot at all.Now if I select the previously working option in grub, I get a long and unintelligible error message which I'll share below.

Ubuntu 12.04 UEFI Boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 7, 2012
This is my first post in here, so please bear with me. Recently I have ordered parts for my new desktop. The Specs are:
MoBo: ASUS M5A97 AM3+ w/ UEFI BIOS
( www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131767 )
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE
gfx Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1 GB GDDR5 256 bit
( www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102908 )
It has come to my notice that, there exists an ample amount of trouble with installing Linux (or Ubuntu in my case) with UEFI BIOS. So I would like to ask a few questions in regard to that:
Also, I plan to install it on a 120 gb SSD.
1. Can I install Ubuntu 12.04 by booting the LIVE CD in UEFI mode ( I will have Ubuntu 12.04 as the only OS on the system)
2. In some cases I have heard that the graphics drivers act up, which is why you have to use the integrated graphics and then install video-card drivers later on ? ( I am asking, because my motherboard doe

Linux Ubuntu/windows 7/ dual boot system and questions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 16, 2010
I am new to the whole linux ubuntu system, but after another crash and data loss i decided to make the big step and go for it.
But i also have a few questions before i embark on this journey and i hope some of you are able to help me a little bit.
As the title says:
I have picked up this idea from someone that used to work with me on how he had a dual boot system on his pc. I would like to achieve the same with windows 7/ ubuntu.
But here are a few questions:
1) I use a 64bit version of windows 7 is there a 64bit version of Ubuntu ?
2) Does anyone know a step by step guide for creating a dual boot system ?
3) How do drivers respond in ubuntu (ex. i have a geforce 9800gx2) ?
4) Same as above but for gaming purposes ? (ex warcraft, fifa, gta etc)
I have been reading about unbuntu but just to be sure i would like to ask these questions and hope someone can answer them for me.
These are my system specs :
64/32bit Ubuntu/Windows 7 dualboot

Well, okay, then. Might as well explain my situation.
I have two computers at hand, my old, crumbling (but still pretty mighty) desktop and a sleek (but rather bland) laptop, both with Windows 7. I've been running various Linux distros in VirtualBox on both machines for... psh, a year now? Main distros have been Ubuntu, Fedora (<3 Fedora) and SliTaz. I started messing with linux mainly just to play around with it and partly for the slight amount of geek-cred >.>
So, anyways, last sunday night I decided to clear out a 50gb partition using the Shrink Volume thingymabob on Win7 on my desktop and install 64-bit netinst Fedora on it. Installing went well and after a few tedious hours fiddling with the MBR and grub and windows bootloaders, i got it up and running perfectly. EasyBCD ftw.
Well, not perfectly... both systems have been acting up ever since... But that's for a Fedora forum, not here. ( http://atreus.pastebin.com/yv7aEbf6 if you're curious. got tha
Linux on Windows 8 (UEFI) NEED HELP WITH Grub.cfg file!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 25, 2014
I'm trying to install Linux on my personal Windows 8 laptop (Sony Vaio Flip 15).
To my knowledge there are currently only two distributions of Linux that support Windows 8 (Ubuntu and Fedora)
I have tried Ubuntu with no errors running the distro live.(I did not try installing it)
However, for the tasks I'm trying to accomplish I need Back track5 r3 (or *preferably) Kali
I have currently installed Kali Linux on a USB flash drive using:
Universal USB Installer ()
At this point, I have configured my laptop to boot from an external device before booting form the internal hard drive. I understand Windows 8 uses Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and not BIOS. Therefore, I have disabled secure boot and created the following directory in my USB flash drive root.
Within this directory I have copied (Bootx64.efi & Grubx64.efi) from Ubuntu; additionally, I have created a Grub.cfg file (
As of now I have been able to

Creating the ultimate Grub2 setup: Windows installer + Live, Linux installer + live +
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 11, 2010
A year ago I tried to make the perfect memory stick - to once and for all throw away all the CD-s and to make it the perfect rescue, install and fixing tool suiting my special needs. I tried, and I failed. The problem was getting Grub to load all those different CD's of mine.
Now, with GRUB2, I hope my dream has come possible:
I want to install GRUB2 to a USB Memory Stick, with 16-32 GB capacity or so, and make it able to load:
- Windows 7 installer
- Different versions: 32- and 64-bit, some modified, slipstreamed and tweaked etc
- Windows XP installer
- Windows PXE ("live" windows)
- Puppy Linux ("live" linux)
- Ubuntu installer
- Arch installer
- Hirens boot CD
- Ultimate boot CD
I remember I was able to get W7 installer and Puppy linux on the same stick, but from thereon the problems kept piling up. And now I need your help!
- AFAIK Ubuntu and Arch installer should be no hassle to add to GRUB2
- Hirens boot CD is able to boot Windows PXE us
