    How-to: Recover files from Wubi install with LiveCD

    Hello Hara... As mentioned in post #1 in this thread, you need to specify the correct hard drive and partition numbers corresponding to those of your Windows partition which hosts Wubi-installed Ubuntu. Obviously, in your case, sda1 is not correct. The easiest way to figure that out is by typing...

    Can windows vista recovery disk repair startup of Portuguese vista and German XP?

    Lol...that's Windows for you. I hate it when that happens. Stuff like that is the reason I install Ubuntu Linux in a multiboot with Windows on nearly every computer system I own...that way I have a working operating system to fall back onto if and when Windows breaks. Ubuntu is a way more stable...

    Can windows vista recovery disk repair startup of Portuguese vista and German XP?

    You may be able to boot into Vista if you change hard drive priority in the BIOS, and put the other hard drive first. From what you were saying earlier, it sounds like both OSes can boot from its own hard drive, you just wanted a dual-boot menu. To accomplish this, just change hard drive...

    wanted to replace boot mentu from grub2(ubuntu) with EasyBCD. cant boot to ubuntu.

    Try running the following commands in the GRUB4DOS prompt: ls root (hdX,Y) ls (hdX,Y)/dev kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdX,Y initrd /initrd.img boot where the bold "X" and "Y" represent the actual hard drive and partition values corresponding to your Ubuntu root ( / ) partition (which you should...

    Problem multibooting on RAID system

    Well, I tried installing XP again onto a physical partition with RAID mode on, and loading RAID drivers through F6 in setup, but I still got a BSOD, so I dropped the idea of installing XP on a physical partition on this computer, and instead decided to install Windows XP Mode, which I'm trying...

    Booting PC-BSD entry->PXE resulted in serious trouble...

    Nope..no luck. Still the same PXE boot options screen when I selected Ubuntu's entry in the BCD. So I'm going to forget about booting Ubuntu that way, and leave Grub installed to the MBR. Right now, I'm able to boot into both W7 and Ubuntu through Grub just fine, so I have a dual-boot. :D

    Booting PC-BSD entry->PXE resulted in serious trouble...

    In my BIOS, there is only the device type priority, which has both a "Hard Drive" device and a "USB Bootable Drive" or some such device. When I'm in RAID mode, there is only one hard drive device seen by the BIOS, since both internal hard drives in my laptop are part of the single RAID volume...

    Booting PC-BSD entry->PXE resulted in serious trouble...

    That's one of the first things I checked, but my CD ROM drive was first, followed by the Hard drive, and then by the Network device, but the PXE boot screen still showed every single time. I even put Hard drive first, but still the same thing... I tried disabling the Network thing option in the...

    Booting PC-BSD entry->PXE resulted in serious trouble...

    I'm sorry, but all the evidence points contrary to that statement: 1. I only used Testdisk on my external hard drive, not my main internal hard drive which contains W7 and Ubuntu. 2. Even if Testdisk, by some weird occurance, had somehow messed up my main hard drive, the first reboot would not...

    Booting PC-BSD entry->PXE resulted in serious trouble...

    But I can't boot into PC-BSD anymore. Not from Windows 7 boot manager on my new computer, or from BootIt NG on my old computer, since BootIt NG only sees the Protective MBR partition spanning the entire disk. Also, I don't see how converting my external hard drive to GUID partition type with...

    Booting PC-BSD entry->PXE resulted in serious trouble...

    Ok, I mentioned in another thread that I had PC-BSD installed on an external USB hard drive, and was wanting to boot it with the W7 boot manager, by adding an entry for it in EasyBCD, but Windows wasn't reading the disk correctly. Well, long story short, I got Windows to read the disk correctly...

    Problem multibooting on RAID system

    Ok, it seems I was wrong about that part. It turns out /dev/sda7 didn't exist, as I found out when I looked around on my Ubuntu partition from the LiveCD. It seems Ubuntu gives different device names when RAID is involved. My actual partition device name in the /dev folder is "dm-7". Anyway, I...

    Problem multibooting on RAID system

    I actually didn't use sda6, but (hd0,6) when mounting the partition with the "root" command (which reported the partition as having an ext3 filesystem, though it was a little off since I know that the partition is actually ext4), and then I used sda7 in the kernel command in the root=/dev/...

    Problem multibooting on RAID system

    Ok, looking at it again, I realized its not exactly an error per se, but is a message indicating something going wrong: (last part of text before hang)

    creating entry for PC-BSD

    You know what? Now that you mention it...I'm starting to think you may be right. I do seem to have a vague memory of using GUID when installing PC-BSD, though that was a long time back, and can't be sure. If that is the case, what could I do to solve the problem? Is there some way to change the...
