I have a dual boot of Win7 and Ubuntu on my HP laptop. I upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 today and on restart I got a different black Grub screen instead of the usual purple one. (GNU GRUB version 1.99-21ubuntu3.1) Each boot option only returns error messages.
I have an HP Pavillion p6-2120 with AMD quad4 and WIN7. Before install, I disabled win boot manager and activated legacy boot in the bios. Fedora installed (used KDE live disk) successfully indicating that it had written the boot loader to the mbr. On reboot, the computer would not boot saying No disk, no boot menu and cannot boot win. I used a CD boot and was able to access fedora ok.
I'm attempting to install 12.04 on my computer but booting from my USB drive results in a blank screen. This has happened since 10.04 and has always been fixed by putting nomodeset in the boot command, but now I can't access the boot options with F6 for some reason. How can I access the boot options?
I booted into the live image on a different computer and it worked fine.
I have a Toshiba c855d-s5307 laptop. I redid a windows 8 installation and left 25GB free space to install 12.10 x64. secure boot is turned off and when I boot from the DVD I get the proper install/boot live options. But when I pick either one the disk spins for about 5 minutes then the screen shuts off and nothing happens until i restart.
Earlier today, I placed an Ubuntu 12.04 disk in my computer to boot into Ubuntu Live. I pressed Esc to get into the boot order setup and chose to boot from the CD-Rom. Everything went smoothly and I used Live for a while. I went to power down the computer and ejected the disk and pressed Enter when it said to, shutting down without a problem.
I have Windows 7 installed on my HDD, and the whole drive is logical. I want to replace Windows 7 with Elementary OS Luna, but can it boot off of a logical disk? I saw something on Grub being able to boot off logical drives. But can I boot if I install?
I am setting up a notebook for software demo purpose. The machine has a Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB RAM, a 128GB SSD, and runs Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit desktop. As it is, the SSD is configured to have a single volume group, with /boot, /swap, and / all in their respective logical volumes. They collectively consume 30GB space.
