    Win 7 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Dual Boot Fails

    Because the cause for the problem is narrowed down to grub4dos and the drive size, I reported that as a bug

    grub4dos (part of EasyBCD) does not recognize Linux partitions on a 2 TB drive

    The subject says it all. All details can be found in the parallel forum, starting with this post. Note that EasyBCD itself has no problem recognizing partitions on large drives, but grub4dos (used for Grub2 option) can't recognize, mount or boot those. I thought I'd report this bug here...

    Win 7 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Dual Boot Fails

    OK, using exactly the same procedure as before, I installed Kubuntu on a smaller drive, 500 GB (the 3rd drive in the system, so I got dev/sdc2 with ext4 and dev/sdc3 for swap). This time, there was no problem booting into Kubuntu. So, I think it's a positive proof that grub4dos does not support...

    Win 7 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Dual Boot Fails

    By default, when installing onto a free space, Ubuntu creates a logical partition with Ext4 and swap (which, somehow, Win 7 sees as two primary partitions). OK, to test the hypothesis of the problems due to Ubuntu put on a logical partition, I redid everything - this time with a manual...

    Win 7 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Dual Boot Fails

    I tried root (hd0,4) and geometry in the very beginning - that's why I said that grub4dos did not see my Linux partition. I get Error 5 - invalid partition. But Kubuntu live cd and GParted on UBCD see it and mount it just fine. Gujin (from UBCD) even boots it (almost to very end). Since...

    Win 7 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Dual Boot Fails

    Computer Guru and other gurus, do you guys need any additional info, files, dumps to diagnose the problem with Ubuntu 10.04? Is it normal that grub4dos does not recognize Linux partition?

    Win 7 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Dual Boot Fails

    Thanks for your help! Unfortunately, Linux still does not boot after I changed these 1s to 0s in grub.cfg, as you suggested. I still get into grub4dos prompt. I'm not sure. Some Linux wikis say it's the order of SATA ports. Some say it's the order the system loads them and could be random. But...

    Win 7 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Dual Boot Fails

    I got pretty much the same problem. The only variation is that I have a triple-boot system: Win 7 64-bit, Win XP SP3 (32bit), and Kubuntu 10.04. Win 7 and Win XP boot OK (thanks to EasyBCD), yet Kubuntu does not boot, I get into grub prompt instead. I installed XP first, long ago, then added a...
