Okay so, I had connected an external harddrive via ATA/IDE to USB cable to install Ubuntu 8.10 from my laptop so i could use the external harddrive which really is the master harddrive for another computer. I had successfully installed ubuntu onto that harddrive but i cannot boot into windows on my laptop without that harddrive plugged in.
Dear Ubuntu Community,My server is running Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits OS, but recently when reboot the server, got below error at booting stage:"reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"
Access to BIOS, the harddrive is detectable, but no display for the size of the harddrive.
Ubuntu 9.04 does not boot in normal mode when the slave harddrive is connected.
The desired configuration is:
- one 13 GB master harddrive with dual boot from Win98 and Ubuntu 9.04
- one 40 GB slave harddrive as storage
The Win98 boot option is nonessential; I'm just trying to smooth the transition.
ive looked and looked but cant find anything but repartitioning and creating both on one harddrive. what i want to do is take my built computer that i have ubuntu 13.10 (updating to 14.04 as im typing this) and make it possible to choose my laptop harddrive at boot. which by the way is already plugged in and i can access the information but cant run anything with it being windows.
I tried installing Windoz 7 on one of my harddrives awhile back. It ended up not working correctly, so I deleted it. At this same time I had another harddrive running gnu/linux.
When I first tried to boot my linux drive back up I received a "Grub boot error".
I searched for a long while and finally found 'Boot-Repair-Disk'.
I recently installed Chrubuntu on my chromebook. It uses SeaBIOS when booting, and everything works properly. However, I like to keep my SD card in at all times since the chromebook has a small internal harddrive. Every time I choose to boot ubuntu it always tries booting off of the SD card before the harddrive, forcing me to restart the computer and take the SD card out each time it boots.
