I upgraded my laptop and when I reboot it, I have problems with grub. I put the live CD and tried to download the boot-repair, by putting in the terminal
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install boot-repair
it downloads everything but then, when i use dash to open it, it doesn't appear in applications, where is it?
I recently upgraded to 12.04. After booting I only got the grub shell with no kernels loaded. I tried running boot repair. It told me I use GPT and would need to create a new grub-boot partition. I did this and ran boot repair again successfully. However I now get only a blinking underscore on boot and don't even get a grub shell. Any ideas?
Last night i flashed some things that bring my phone in bootloop ... ( rebooting after Xperia Loggo )
And i started Sony PC Companion to repair it . Guess what ! Of it repair it but ... in the process my LED was Blue = Fast Boot ( when my boot loader is Locke! ( Allow Rooting Boot Loader: NO ).
Now ... Can some one explain me how and why this happen?
So, I don't know what exactly how I managed to delete the MBR record on windows partition. But let me explain what I did next, I ran the ubuntu boot repair tool and now Windows is not even listed in my grub loader.
So I went and booted with windows cd and choose repair. Then I ran ubuntu boot repair again via live cd. Here is the log http://paste.ubuntu.com/1426181/. Still no luck.
