I've been dual-booting Kubuntu and Windows 7 for a couple of weeks and I've been able to boot into Kubuntu just fine until this afternoon. Now when I choose Kubuntu's entry, instead of the regular bootloader I get the grub prompt screen saying "Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.", etc.
Hey all, go easy on me if I'm making a noob mistake.
I am dual booting Win7/Kubuntu 12.10 using Grub2. All on a single drive, all partitions seem to be correct, using the 64bit version. I can boot from the USB key just fine but not from the disk after selecting Kubuntu from Grub.
After installing off of a live cd (via USB) grub was not working so I ran boot-repair selecting recommended fixes.
So, I have three hard drives. The first used to have windows xp on it, the second has two partitions, one containing just data and another containing windows 7 and the third is just data. I installed kubuntu to the first hard drive (replacing everything on it) with LVM.
I just finished installing Kubuntu 12.04.1 on my laptop, which already had Windows 7 installed. The Windows boot partition is sda1; the Kubuntu boot partition is (or is supposed to be) sda6. The installation had a couple of minor burps that I didn't worry about. But now, when I reboot, I get into Windows rather than Kubuntu.
I'd like to fully install Ubuntu 12.10 onto a 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive, not create a live USB but to treat the flash drive as an external hard drive. I've read it's possible and I know my computer can boot from it. However, it doesn't work when I try. I've booted a Live USB from another flash drive and installed Ubuntu onto the 16GB one.
